A young singer from Somerset has failed to make it into the finals of Britain's Got Talent. Ten year old Gracie Wickens-Sweet from Brent Knoll's solo effort wowed the audience but didn't win enough votes in tonight's live semi-final to get through.
An 10-year-old girl from Somerset has been wowing the judges on Britain's Got Talent, and will be performing in tonight's live semi-finals in front of millions.
Gracie Wickens-Sweet from Brent Knoll, described as "fantastic" by the judges, got a standing ovation from the crowd for her performance of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Her next challenge will be to make it through to the show's live finals.
The South West has also been cheering on 11-year-old South Gloucestershire dancer Eloise Stroud, who made a splash with dance troupe Groove Thing. The talented youngsters missed out on a place in the final, but still have a chance to be chosen as a wild card.
Fresh from wowing the judges on Britain's Got Talent, young dance group Groove Thing have been performing in South Gloucestershire - but this was an exclusive private showing for the school of one of its members.
11-year-old Eloise Stroud is a Year 7 pupil at Brimsham Green in Yate, and says performing for her classmates was an even bigger challenge than getting four yeses.
She and her 11 fellow dancers are no stranger to a challenge - training all day and after school five days a week in Port Talbot, Wales to get good. It looks like it's paying off.
