Irish girl wows judges in Britain's Got Talent semi-final

A young Irish operatic singer stunned judges and viewers alike with her Britain’s Got Talent performance but unfortunately it was not enough to see her through to the live finals.
14-year-old Leah Barniville delighted Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams with her rendition of Italian classical song Parla Piu Piano.

The performance was faultless and had the four judges in awe of Leah and her stunning voice.
Simon Cowell told the youngster: “Bloody hell. That was fantastic.”
Fellow judge Alesha Dixon was equally impressed by Leah and told her: “It was a faultless performance, you have made Ireland proud and the Queen would absolutely love you.”
Comedy star David Walliams added: “I thought I died and gone to heaven, you were amazing. You have the voice of an angel.”
Leah’s performance would have come as no surprise to anyone who had seen her first audition. She sang so beautifully on that occasion that she moved her younger brother to tears.
Despite the brilliant performance by Leah, the British public chose not to vote her through to the live finals, instead picking child magician Issy Simpson.
Ant and Dec’s golden buzzer choice Matt Edwards was the other act to go through to the final.
Take a look at Leah’s incredible performance below.
