Opera Singer On ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Eats Cake During Her Performance
After 12 seasons of Britain's Got Talent, it doesn't cut it anymore to just be really good at something. While the judges obviously are looking for the next big thing, the contestant has to have something that makes them stand out.
So, instead of just relying on her operatic prowess, Sarah Llewellyn decided to turn it up a bit.
The 32-year-old American explained to the judges that her dad is Welsh so there's a half-decent reason why she's auditioning on a UK reality TV talent contest, rather than back home. Sarah says she first got into opera when she was around eight or nine years old but her shyness stopped her from following her talent.
Her mission is to 'inspire people to express themselves' in whatever way they want, and boy did she do that.
Dressed in a red gown and wearing no shoes, Ms Llewellyn gave a gorgeous rendition of 'O Mio Babbino Caro'. Her first few notes saw raised-yet-excited eyebrows from Simon Cowell - which is always a good start. You can practically see the £ signs in his eyes during the clip.
But then she gestured towards the left of the stage and Ant and Dec brought out a nice-looking wedding cake.
What could this mean? A royal wedding special? Her way of sweetening up the judges?
Nope. Sarah pulled out a fork, dunked it in the cake and shoved a piece in her mouth, without skipping a beat or letting the food affect her voice.
But the fork wasn't enough, the performer then literally grabbed a handful of cake and ate it - again while singing beautifully.
At the risk of sounding like an overnight infomercial: BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE.
Sarah then handed the microphone to Ant as she stripped down to a much more intimate outfit and bent over backwards. The crowd couldn't believe their eyes as this woman turned her performance into an acrobatic act.
If you thought it couldn't get weirder - Sarah ended her audition by sinking her face into a cake on the ground.
David Walliams said: "You combined all the things you're good at: singing opera, being bendy and eating cake."
Simon, who looked genuinely dumbfounded by the performance said: "You know what, Sarah? You spotted a gap in the market here. It's original, it's different and you're the one I'm going to remember."
Incredibly, she got four yesses from the judges and Sarah will now get to show off her skills in the next round.
Can't wait to see what she does.
