Biggest stars of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent will be youngsters as they steal the show during auditions – The Sun

THE BIGGEST stars of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent will be the smallest — after the youngsters stole the show during auditions.

Last night’s opening episode saw six young acts wow judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon with their performances.

They included Yakub Saunders, ten, with a Lion King-themed routine. He revealed he was inspired to dance by watching Billy Elliot.

The Sign Along With Us choir, who sign and sign, were voted through. They feature Ella Chadwick, who was given the Child of Courage prize by Simon at the Pride of Britain awards in 2018 when she was 11.

Simon said: “I said I have a feeling you’re going to be auditioning on one of our shows — and guess what? You’re here!”

Primary school dance troupe Nu Crew also made their mark. TV sources said there are many more child stars waiting in the wings.

They include Fayth Ifil, 11, who wowed the judges in the pre-recorded shows with her rendition of Proud Mary.

Fayth, from Swindon, starred as a young Tina Turner in the West End musical based on the singer’s life.

And she is tipped to be one of the show’s biggest success stories after impressing Simon.

The source went on: “The younger contestants this year have really raised the bar.

“It’s not hard to imagine any of them going on to win. Yakub was a real hit with the panel of judges.

“The St Anne’s Gospel choir — 81 girls between 11 and 35 who sang Emeli Sande’s hit Shine — were also clearly a firm favourite.

“And in later episodes fans will see Fayth — who absolutely blew all of the judges away. Simon in particular couldn’t believe how talented she was.”

We revealed last month how show boss Simon, 60, had begun discussions to postpone the live finals of the ITV show because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Speaking at the time, a source close to the mogul said: “We wouldn’t be behaving in a responsible way if we weren’t having ­conversations about whether or not we should go ahead.”
