Britain's Got Talent viewers were left in tears this evening (18th April) after Beth Porch took to the stage.


Beth is a paediatric nurse in a London hospital and uses her talent of playing guitar to teach some of the children she looks after how to play themselves.

After admitting it's a tough job and she sees some upsetting sights, she said she wanted to write a song about the incredible children she meets.

The moving ballad left everyone in the audience in tears and of course gained her a well-deserved standing ovation.

Amanda Holden said of Beth's song: "This kind of talent is god-given and you are literally an angel in every way I bet everyone adores you in the hospital."

Simon Cowell added: "You're a great singer, you're a great songwriter, you're a great person - so that's three boxes ticked."

As well as being popular with the crowd, she was popular with the judges, who gave her four yeses.

A third commented: "Beth on #BGT just totally broke my heart."
