Sarah Ikumu stunned on Britain's Got Talent 2017 this year and here's more of the talented teenager.

Sarah, a school girl and singer, closed this series' first round of try outs for the new series.

Currently living with her mum and dad Alex in Milton Keynes, Sarah belted out “And I Am Telling You” for the judges from the musical Dreamgirls.

After singing, Sarah had all four judges and the entire live audience up on their feet - before Simon Cowell hit the golden buzzer.

He said: "I've heard this song a lot and it started off really well and then it's like you became possessed halfway through.

"It was quite incredible and for someone of your age to stand on that stage with all the nerves and pressure to absolutely nail the song but you made it your song."

Finally, Simon concluded: "Most importantly, enjoy this, I'm thrilled for you and your family."

BGT however was far from Sarah's first talent show, having already performed in local competitions in her area such as the Teenstar singing competition.

Sarah has also appeared in a number of performances to YouTube, including a polished music video of her singing Whitney Houston classic I Have Nothing.

The teen has also covered classics from other big diva singers including Beyonce and Aretha Franklin, with the clips notching up thousands of views even before she appeared on Britain's Got Talent.

With Simon's golden buzzer, Sarah is into the live semi-finals later this year.

She'll be performing tonight live on ITV for a place in the grand final, which has moved to Saturday night.

Can Sarah make the cut? It'll the public alone that decide with the two most popular acts going through.
