18 Year Old Singer Chelsea Redfern Tipped To Be A ‘Superstar’ As She Stuns BGT Judges

18 Year Old Singer Chelsea Redfern Stuns BGT Judges

The singing talent that has already been unearthed in this series of Britain’s Got Talent continued with a vengeance in tonight’s episode, as 18 year old office worker Chelsea Redfern stunned the judges with a powerful rendition of Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

18 year old Chelsea was supported in the wings by her Nan, who is also a singer and who was there to give her granddaughter some much needed encouragement and support.

After belting out her rendition, a tearful Chelsea looked nervous as she awaited the judges’ comments, but she had no need to worry. Singer Alesha Dixon was impressed:

“I can see how much this means to you. I love how shy and sweet you are and then this powerful voice comes out.”

David Walliams was equally stunned: “you’re a beautiful girl. You could be a superstar!”

Music-mogul Simon Cowell added “I thought it was a risk at first choosing that song.” “You’ve got something really quite distinct in your voice. Not only do you sound like a popstar, you look like a popstar.”

But this wasn’t Chelsea’s first shot at fame. She made the top 16 girls in last years’ X Factor and her audition in Cardiff of Etta James’s “At Last” received a standing ovation from the crowd and Gary Barlow and Kelly Rowland both loved her.

Tonight Chelsea was rewarded with four ‘Yes’ votes that catapulted her into the next round of the competition, taking her a step closer to making the live finals.
