Shaheen Jafargholi makes final of Britain’s Got Talent
Twelve-year-old Shaheen Jafargholi won through to Saturday’s final of Britain’s Got Talent after belting out And I’m Telling You from the movie Dreamgirls.
The Swansea schoolboy was beaten by Greek dance act Stavros Flatley but went through to the judges vote along side MD Showgroup. Although Simon Cowell immediately opted to save the dancers, fellow judges Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan agreed on putting the little singing sensation through to the final.
Earlier, Piers had described his version of the Jennifer Hudson song as “the best singing performance we have heard in the semi-finals so far”. Amanda said: “you have given and amazing mature performance but you still look like a kid. You are going through to the final”
Simon completed the praise for the 12 year old by saying: “I’m certain we’re going to see you on Saturday, you’re an absolute contender in this competition.”
