Britain's Got Talent Bury St Edmunds singer Souparnika Nair, 10, still in with a chance of heading to final




10-year-old singer Souparnika Nair is still in with a chance of heading to the final of Britain's Got Talent after wowing judges in the semi-finals tonight.

The Sebert Wood Primary School pupil, of Bury St Edmunds , missed out on automatic qualification, but was in the judges top three, and with enough public votes can still go through to the final on October 10.

And her rendition of Neverland by Zendaya was enough to get her a standing ovation from the judges.

After her performance, David Walliams said: "Wow! That was amazing. I love what you do.

"It's so classic and timeless and beautiful, and I can't remember the show ever opening with somebody getting a standing ovation.

"It normally takes a while for someone to warm us all up, but I mean we were there straight away for you because we were totally blown away by that."

David Walliams called Souparnika's performing style 'timeless' and 'beautiful'.
