WATCH: BGT's Sam Kelly Auditioned For 'Brutally Honest' Opinion On His Vocals

We caught up with the finalist


Last night saw Sam Kelly become the seventh person to gain a place in the Britain's Got Talent final after he impressed the judges and the audience with his performance.

Speaking to us the morning after, the soulful singer revealed that the reason why he auditioned for the show was because he wanted to get a "brutally honest" opinion from the judges on his vocals.

Asked what he thought of the judges comments, in particular Simon's, Sam said:

"As a young musician, you can't really hope for anything better than to have Simon Cowell saying that because you see it on TV all the time. If he doesn't like someone, he would just tell them and that's why I auditioned for the show, to get a brutally honest opinion on my vocals because I've got a thick skin."

The young hopeful also revealed to us why he chose to audition for BGT instead of the X Factor. Wanting to have the freedom when it came to music choices, Sam said:

"I get nervous performing without an instrument. I've never done a gig without a guitar or piano and I just think I would make a complete fool of myself. I also have a particular singing style and I like to do my own thing and my own arrangements. So I wanted to do a competition where I would be allowed to do my own thing and I've been allowed to do that.

"That's why I chose Britain's Got Talent. I'm not sure I would have got through on any other competitions."

Check out what else Sam had to say in our interview with him above!

The Story Of The First Two Semi-Finals

This Semi-Final lark is evidently a lot more relaxing for the judges than the contestants.
Kayleigh and Pudsey impressed the judges and made it through in first place in the public vote.
Rapper Zipparah Tafari faced the heartbreak of an early exit.
Though there was a group of happy Welshmen as male voice choir Only Boys Aloud made it through after a tense deadlock between the judges.
The Mend were unlucky to lose out, with how close they came to the final utterly agonising for the boy band.
Semi-Final 2 saw dance troupe Cascade strip off in the hope of winning over the public. It didn't help, and the stunt troupe are off home.
The Shobears may be one of the most talked about acts thius year, but they failed to make the all important top 3 and are leaving, subject to a wildcard decision.
Simon Cowell was surprisingly unimpressed by the camp act and buzzed them out.
Drummer Dave Fish also failed to impress the public and judges.
Four Corners were also unsuccesful on a tough night for dancers.
Ballroom dancers Kai and Natalia fared rather better and gained a place in the final after a judge's vote.
They edged out Paige Turley, with the 14-year-old singer having to deal with the cruel fate of missing out.
The undisputed stars of this year's show so far have been popera duo Jonathan and Charlotte, they sailed into the final.
Boy band The Wanted added some stardust to proceedings.
