AN Irish schoolgirl had all four Britain's Got Talent judges on their feet after a stunning operatic audition this weekend.
Leah Barniville, 14, from Ratoath in Co. Meath received a standing ovation from judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon following her rendition of Carusa by Lucio Dalla.
The classically-trained singer's audition received high praise from Simon Cowell, who said her performance was "incredible".
"I thought that was honestly incredible and you're 14 years old. You don't know how good you are. A billion per cent yes," he said.
Judge Amanda Holden also praised the Irish teenager’s "flawless audition."
Leah, who had never visited Britain before, was accompanied to the audition by her parents and younger brother Daniel.
Before her audition, she told the audience: "I can't stop singing. I sing when I study, when I'm brushing my teeth and when I'm trying to sleep.
"It means so much to me that today goes well. I want to make my mum, dad and brother proud.
"It would mean so much to win, I can't even imagine. It'd be everything I've wanted my whole life."
The 14-year-old got a “yes” from all four judges and sailed through to the next round.
