12-year-old Beau Dermott is expected to sign a record deal following Britain's Got Talent.

The youngster belted out Jekyll & Hyde's Someone Like You live in front of 10 million viewers in the penultimate semi-final last night, topping the public vote.

Beau had won her away into the live stages straight from the auditions after getting a golden buzzer from Amanda Holden in the very first show this year.

Commenting on Beau's performance in the semis, Amanda said: "I'm so proud of you, that's just the most stunning song, your voice was even better than your audition. I could not be more thrilled for you."

Simon Cowell added: "Very simply this is why we make the show for people like you."

He went on: "I guarantee you in about 5 or 10 years time we'll look back and say this the moment we discovered a star."

Meanwhile Alesha Dixon concluded: "That was sensational" as she branded Beau a possible winner.

Wherever Beau comes in Saturday night's final it looks like the future is VERY bright for the youngster, who dreams about performing in musical theatre.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, a record deal is on the cards.

A source told the tabloid today: "She has become the star of the show and whatever happens she will be getting a recording contract.

"There is a lot of talent and a lot of money to be made there."

Before any of that however Beau has one more performance to give, currently chalked up as the second favourite to win behind magician Richard Jones.

Britain's Got Talent continues tonight on ITV with the last of the semi-finals.
