Alison Jiear says Britain's Got Talent audition was like an 'out of body experience'


Britain’s Got Talent's Alison Jiear has described her audition to an “out of body experience”.

The 50-year-old performed You’ll Never Walk Alone to close Saturday night's show, earning herself a standing ovation from the judges and our yeses through to the next round.

Alison is no stranger to the music industry having had numerous acting and singing parts in West End shows, TV ads and even movies.

However she wants to finally step out into the limelight, saying: "I love doing studio singing and backing vocals, but I've been grafting away for so long and I'm still anonymous."

Speaking to STV about her audition, Alison said: “About halfway through the song I started feeling the support of the audience and it was just incredible – like an out of body experience – I literally had to fight back the tears to finish the song!"

She told how losing her father last year helped her to perform the track, explaining: "Everyone's lost someone, and wants to feel that someone's watching over them. When I sang this on the BGT stage I felt like my dad was sitting on my shoulder watching me."

The amazing audition may have paved the way for Alison to make the semi-finals but it's now left her with the rather tough task of having to follow it up but she reckons she can do it.

"I just want to keep taking it up a notch! If I get through, it will be tempting to do something different and show people a different side to me. But most of all I want to be true to myself," she said . "I'll pick a song that will raise the roof!"

Britain's Got Talent 2015 continues next weekend on ITV.
