Soulful singer Honey Shazad was told by Simon Cowell that she was “not going to get through tonight” after an attack of nerves hindered the Yorkshire singers performance.
After performing the Terence Trent D’Arby 1980’s classic Sign Your Name Honey was told by Simon that the audience could feel her nerves.
In a turquoise and black mini dress, the determined singer tried to battle through her nerves but ended up delivering a performance that was “neither here nor there” according to Amanda.
Alesha said: “I can see how much this means to you but a song like that needs a little more attack. I think your nerves really hindered you. You have a lovely voice and I hope the nerves don’t let you down.”
The Yorkshire singer – who’s been performing since she was six and rapping since she was 15 – really had to bring it in her semi-final after Simon called her “exactly the kind of singer I like” following her first audition.
Ahead of the show, the focused 21-year-old wasn’t fazed, cheekily saying she might marry Simon one day. Instead she wanted to impress Amanda, who didn’t put her through.
Honey said: “I want to impress Amanda because she didn’t put me through and I know I’ve got the talent.
“Nobody wants it more than me. If I don’t have music I have nothing. I’m a normal hard working down to earth person.”
The ghetto princess also promised to triple the £500,000 Britain’s Got Talent prize money if she wins the show.
