Rosie O'Sullivan

Britain's Got Talent 2013 star Rosie O’Sullivan has hit back at tabloid reports claiming she 'fooled viewers'.

The 19 year old student from Birmingham wowed the judges on the show at the weekend with her performance of This Is A Man's World.

Alesha told her: " “Do you know Rosie, you sang that brilliantly. Your control is fantastic, and I have a feeling we haven’t even seen your full range of what you can do/ I just think you’re amazing. Well done.”

And Simon Cowell gushed: “Absolutely bloody fantastic! You have a really throwback authentic soul voice. Amazing.”

But some newspaper suggested that Rosie bad hidden her past in a bad called the Rosettes, with a source saying:

Speaking to us this week, Rosie hit back, saying that the band was only a school group and they did nothing more than a handful of small gigs.

She said: "I moved to London in September and formed a band in my Uni, where I'm studying music. It was experience for my Uni course. We did a few gigs here and there but I've always been a solo artist."

And Rosie added: "BGT is the biggest gig yet, I've never done anything as big as this."

Meanwhile, Rosie told us how singing helps her to stop her nerves.

She explained: "When I'm singing I'm in a world of my own, I'm not nervous when I'm singing, it takes me away from the less confident bit of me."
