Emma Winter on Britain's Got Talent

Some Britain's Got Talent viewers reckon the judges were wrong to say no to Emma Winter.

24 year old student teacher from Wales Emma performed at the auditions during Saturday night's latest show.

"That's probably where I do most of my singing at the moment, in school with the children," said Emma in the episode. "My mum put me forward for the audition because I was too scared to put myself forward.

"I'm really glad she put me forward now. Today is going to be a massive challenge, I'm extremely scared... I'm just hoping everything goes well."

On stage, Emma confessed to being petrified before revealing how her school kids would be angry if she got buzzed off stage.

Only David Walliams gave Emma a yes, telling her: “There’s a lovely sweetness to your voice. I’m going to give you a chance and say yes.”

Amanda Holden added: “The whole thing felt under par – your voice is lovely, it’s very sweet, but the whole thing felt under par.”

Emma looked clearly upset after leaving the stage, being encouraged by hosts Ant and Dec: “The audience liked it – it’s just not for [Simon] today.”

But Emma can take encouragement from a number of viewers who reckon the judges were wrong to say no
