First performance for BGT’s Gracie

FRESH from being named Amanda Holden’s tip to win the competition, a Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist secured her first showbiz booking this week.
Gracie Sweet, who finished barely two per cent away from a possible place in the final, will support last year’s winners, boyband Collabro, in her first performance since leaving the series a fortnight ago.
The 11-year-old from Brent Knoll will star at Westlands in Yeovil on July 25, and perform the song she had been due to sing had she made it through to the series final.
Her mum, Anne said: “Collabro are signed to Syco [Simon Cowell’s production company] already, so if it is a successful gig it can only help.
“We’ve had messages of support from all over the world, with some even coming from as far as India. It was exactly what we wanted, to get her exposure from a bigger audience.”
Ms Sweet said Gracie is enjoying being back ‘in normality’ after the excitement of a semi final show watched by 8.2 million people.
She said: “I think she enjoyed things being back to normal, although they are all treating her like a bit of a star at the moment. She’s very happy to just bumble along and enjoy it.”
