Britain's Got Talent's Beau Dermott hopes to record an album... but school comes first

Beau Dermott

Beau Dermott has big ambitions following her success on Britain's Got Talent 2016.

Last week 12-year-old Beau got a standing ovation from the judges in the live shows and topped the public vote in her semi-final.

The youngster belted out Jekyll & Hyde's Someone Like You live in front of 10 million viewers in the penultimate heat of the week.

Beau had previously 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 following a performance of Defying Gravity.

That was the same song she performed in Saturday's grand final to place fifth in the results.

While she may not have won, the youngster is set for big things with talk of a record deal as bookies tip her to work with musical legend Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

"My dream is to become a West End star," Beau said after the final. "I would love to make musical theatre my career.

"I just love singing and if I had the chance to record an album then of course I would love to do that too."

However Beau's parents are keen for her to first focus on school.

Dad Ian told the Daily Star ons Sunday at the weekend: "Beau's education is paramount.

"We don't know hat will happen in the future with her career but we want to keep her in school.

"As parents the most important thing is that Beau doesn't change."

It was Richard Jones who eventually won BGT at the weekend, becoming the first magician to triumph in ten years.
