Connie Talbot is a six year old singer from Streetly, Metropolitan Borough of Walsall, England. She started singing aged 18 months. She reached the grand final of television reality show Britain's Got Talent, singing The Wizard of Oz's Somewhere Over The Rainbow during both the audition and final stages. "I will win Britain's Got Talent in memory of my Nan", she vowed.
Connie was joint favourite (along with Paul Potts) to emerge as the winner of Britain's Got Talent. Potts won as the result of a call-in vote on the night of the final.Show judge Piers Morgan called her: "pound for pound, inch for inch, the best 6-year-old singer in the world." Simon Cowell told her: "I just adore you." Show judge Amanda Holden was brought to tears.
Simon Cowell was so impressed that he has preliminarily agreed to sign her to a seven-figure deal with his own record label, Sony BMG.
