Canadian rocker Avril Lavigne "felt judged" by the Britain’s Got Talent panel as she delivered an exclusive punk-filled guest performance on stage at the third live semi-final.
The 26-year-old singer wowed the Britain’s Got Talent audience as she gave an energetic performance of her most recent single What The Hell, which she followed with a taster of latest release Smile.
Judging from the reaction of the BGT audience the rocker’s upbeat new tracks will be following the previous success earned by the singer who has sold over 30 million albums and whose hits Sk8ter Boi, Complicated and I’m With You stormed the charts between 2000 and 2003.
Speaking after her performance, Lavigne said that the standard of this year’s competition was very high and commended the contestants for their bravery in taking to the stage.
“Everyone did a really great job. Sometimes it’s tough to get up on stage and especially having judges in from of you. Even I felt judged…..It’s a hard thing just to get up here and do it,” she said.
The singer praised all of the night’s contestants but was particularly impressed by Jay Worley and James Hobley, who she said were her favourites from the show.
