Sarah Ikumu wows BRITAIN GOT Talent

Each of the judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon, and hosts Ant and Dec all get a chance to send an act straight to the live semi-finals with their Golden Buzzer.

But they need to choose carefully as they only get one chance to press it.

It’s only been one episode but Simon has already pressed his on school girl Sarah Ikumu.

Sarah, 15, took to the stage on Saturday night to perform And I Am Telling You from the Oscar-winning film Dreamgirls.

It was clear the audience and Simon were wary of her song choice, seeing as it’s such a huge number and has been performed flawlessly numerous times, including by actress and singer Jennifer Hudson who sang it in the film.

Sarah explained she picked the song ‘because it shows my vocal ability the best’.

Simon replied: ‘One of the biggest songs in the world, and you want to take that one on. Let’s do it.’

Of course she brought the house down, and the crowd and judges were on their feet applauding her when she’d finished.

Although Simon’s buzzer sent her cruising through to the live shows, we’re pretty sure she would have got yeses all across the board.

After her barnstorming audition, Simon told her: ‘He said: ‘Sarah I’ve heard this song a lot. You started off well…and then it’s like you became possessed halfway through. It was quite incredible.

‘And for someone of your age, to stand on this stage with all the nerves and all the pressure, to absolutely not just nail the song but you made it your song.’

Sarah is the daughter of Kenyan parents Mr  & Mrs Ikumu who migrated to England .

Amanda Holden said she was ‘absolutely thrilled’ to see Sarah get a golden buzzer.
