Watch This Britain’s Got Talent Singer Smash A Dreamgirls Song!
This Saturday, Britain’s Got Talent saw a rising star perform in Sarah Ikumu from Milton Keynes. The 16-year-old, about to take her GCSEs, performed on the BGT stage in front of judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden, currently starring in Stepping Out.
With Ant and Dec in the wings and proud parents and sister in the audience, Sarah revealed the song she has chosen to sing: “And I Am Telling You”, the standout number from the hit show Dreamgirls.
Upon hearing the choice, the panel and the audience were worried. It’s a huge song and it could go badly, as Simon commented, “One of the biggest songs in the world. And you want to take that one on?” As Sarah nodded, an entire auditorium held it’s breath as she began to sing…
She smashed it! Sarah blew the audience away and Simon Cowell gladly hit the Golden Buzzer, guaranteeing her a place in the upcoming live show rounds. Golden confetti tumbled down from the ceiling, showering Sarah as the crowd went wild. Her family joined on stage to celebrate, with her father lifting her up into his arms.
Sarah’s definitely got a bright future as a performer, and who knows, maybe we’ll see her on stage in Dreamgirls one day!
