13-year-old Britain's Got Talent reject blasts Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell (Britain's Got Talent 2012)

A 13-year-old girl who was rejected from Britain's Got Talent has hit out at Simon Cowell for ruining her dream.

Hero Melia, who sings and plays the harp, was given a no by the music mogul during her audition last year.

The teenager, who had previously appeared on Sky1's Must Be The Music, was left annoyed after he didn't tell her how good she was (we assume).

Hero is quoted by The Guardian as saying: "I have always loved Simon Cowell for his honesty – the way he tells people straight whether they are good or bad. To me, he has always been a bit of a god, someone who could get you anywhere, music-wise."

However Hero suddenly took a dislike to Simon after he branded her act boring after she performed for the show's new look panel in Manchester.

She claimed: "I got a standing ovation and cheers all the way through. Alesha Dixon wiped away a tear, David Walliams said I was amazing, so did Amanda Holden, but Simon's evil stare continued.

"I suspect he had made up his mind about me long before, as I could see him looking at notes when he gave me a 'No' and said that the harp didn't do it for him; it was old-fashioned. The audience started to chant: 'Harp up, Simon!'"

With three yeses, Hero made through to the callbacks, but was rejected when it came to making the cut for the live shows.

She added: "Cowell shatters dreams and yet I so wanted to impress him.

"I still want the harp to be the new guitar; I hope I can do it."

Britain's Got Talent 2012 auditions continue this weekend on ITV1.
