Britain’s Got Talent: See Lettice Rowbotham perform with Olly Murs

The violinist who wowed judges on Saturday night’s show has starred in a music video with the X Factor star

Lettice (“like the salad”) Rowbotham (“like rowing, then both, then ham”) is a 24-year-old electric violin player. Her string versions of pop hits wowed the judges on Saturday night’s Britain’s Got Talent, including Simon Cowell who she dubs “a very clever chap. He’s got his fingers in so many pies.” 


With four thumbs up from judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden, Lettice has bagged herself a spot in the next round of auditions.

“You had me at ‘hello’,” Holden admitted following this audition:

And this isn’t quite Lettice’s first taste of fame. The plucky performer has featured on an acoustic version of Olly Murs track Heart on My Sleeve. See her here performing in his video:

Lettice is also friends with 2010 X Factor champ Matt Cardle, who tweeted this message:

Perhaps Murs and Cardle could pop along for Lettice’s second audition to help her make it all the way to the finals.

Britain’s Got Talent continues Saturday at 7pm on ITV
