South Africa’s Belinda Davids blew away both the audience and judges after delivering her rendition of Whitney Houston’s, ‘One Moment in Time’.
Performing as the final contestant for the evening, the 43 year old Belinda stunned the judges and had the audience on their feet as she flawlessly belted out the Whitney classic.
At the end of the song, the audience erupted in applause with the judges, Simon Cowell; Amanda Holden; Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, all standing up in awe of Belinda’s magnificent performance.
The episode aired Friday night in Britain and was the final round of Britain’s Got Talent auditions.
To the die-hard Whitney Houston fan, Belinda is already a well-known performer, having travelled the world as a top Whitney tribute singer.
Despite having achieved international success, Belinda felt that she wanted to take the next step in expanding her career, and saw ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ as a way of that just that.
She however did not want to brag about her already successful career, so when the judges asked to tell the audience more about herself, she just said, “I’m a singer and I do Whitney Houston songs.”
When she started to sing however, it became apparent that she is a very gifted professional.
This is however, not Belinda’s first time performing on a talent show in the UK.
In 2017, she was chosen to perform on the BCC show, ‘Even Better Than The Real Things’, where 5 tribute singers compete against other for the top prize.
Not only was she chosen among the 15000 singers that auditioned, but she also won.
The auditions were had been recorded before the COVID outbreak, so it is not clear when the main part of the show will continue.
Being a professional performer, Belinda also had several scheduled tour dates across South Africa and the UK, but it is once again not clear when she will continue with her tours.
Until then however, you can watch Belinda blow away the audience in the video below:
