A SCHOOLGIRL from Swindon is set to wow audiences and judges on Britain’s Got Talent tonight.

Fayth Ifil will feature in tonight’s episode of the show auditioning for a spot in the live finals.

“I was so nervous beforehand,” said the 12-year-old who travelled to London with her family for the audition in January.

“I had butterflies in my tummy. I didn’t really know what to do with myself, should I be happy should I be excited or nervous.”

The daughter of ex-Swindon Town favourite Jerel, sang in front of judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.

“I love Britain’s Got Talent, so when I stepped onto the stage suddenly there were all my favourite people and I had to speak to them,” Fayth said.

“It was so weird, I was like ‘oh my gosh I’m speaking to celebrities!’. I thought I was dreaming, for a second it actually felt like a dream!

“But once the music came on, all my nerves went away and I just focused on singing and trying to make my dream come true,” she said.

The youngster sang Proud Mary by Tina Turner in front of a live crowd.

“The audience were so supportive,” said Fayth.

“They were screaming and clapping along. I’ve always wanted to sing in front of a massive crowd."

Fayth is no stranger to performing on stage after starring in the West End musicals School of Rock and Tina –The Tina Turner Musical.

She played the young Tina before the star found fame as a singer/songwriter.

“I chose the song because of having done the show,” said Fayth.

“I got loads of inspiration from it.”

The young vocalist became interested in performing arts after singing Beyoncé hits on her mum and dad’s bed.

She has been at The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts Swindon for the last three years.

“I just love singing and dancing,” said Fayth. “It just really makes me happy.

"When I perform I feel like I’m in a place I want to be and the energy of the audience makes me even more confident.

“I wanted to try something like Britain’s Got Talent because all the musicals and different shows I’ve been in, involve other people and I wanted to try something different by myself.”

Auditions for BGT were filmed before the lockdown and the live finals of the show have been postponed until later in the year. Fayth is competing to win a £250,000 prize and perform at the Royal Variety Performance in London.

Britain’s Got Talent is on ITV1 from 8pm.
