Seven year old Robbie Firmin wows BGT with Sinatra impersonation

Little cutie Robbie Firmin left hardly a drye eye in the house after performing on tonight’s Britain’s Got Talent audition show.

The adorable seven-year-old explained that he was desperate to win the show as it would be “best birthday present ever” for his beloved mum, and launched into a rendition of Frank Sinatra’s hit My Way.

Wearing a suit and fedora hat, and doing his best to inject a little big of the Rat Pack singer’s legendary swagger into his performance, the tiny crooner won over the hearts of both the audience and the judges.

“It’s my mum’s birthday soon and I want to give her the best birthday present ever...winning Britain’s Got Talent. I want to make my family the proudest family that’s ever been,” he told the judges.

The cheeky little scamp also tried to set his auntie up with Louis Walsh, who stood in for David Hassellhoff during his audition – surely proving that he’s definitely got a little bit of Sinatra’s charm and style in him.

Louis was certainly tickled with Robbie, telling the seven-year-old: “Robbie, that was fantastic. I’ve never heard anybody so young sing that song.”

Michael McIntrye was also rather taken with the singer, telling the younster: “Robbie I thought that was just brilliant, it had everything, you toyed with the audience, they were up, they were down, they were swaying." He concluded: "Robbie you’re a star.”

A very moved looking Amanda Holden added: “Do you know Robbie, I think between them, Louis and Michael have said everything. You were fantastic, it was fabulous.”

With a yes from all three judges, Robbie will be appearing on the next round of Britain's Got Talent; tune in to see what the tiny singer comes out with next!
