Young singer Maia Gough wows the judges with Whitney Houston hit on Britain’s Got Talent

Simon Cowell thinks the 12-year-old schoolgirl from South Wales is "one to watch"...

The Britain’s Got Talent judges were left a little open-mouthed by one performance during last night’s show. 


Maia Gough, a 12-year-old schoolgirl from South Wales, wowed the audience, as well as Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon, after timidly walking onto stage before belting out a powerful and note-perfect rendition of Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing. 

The end of her performance saw Maia receive a standing ovation from the judging panel and the crowd – so it’s fair to say her performance was a popular one. 

The bookies already have odds on Maia at 9/1 of winning the contest – and with Simon Cowell declaring that she’s “one to watch” we may very well have met a finalist last night…
