Hope Murphy impresses on Britain's Got Talent 2012 auditions (VIDEO)

Hope - Britain's Got Talent 2012

16-year-old Hope Murphy won over the Britain's Got Talent 2012 judges tonight, with a take on Maxwell hit This Woman’s Work.

The Essex teenager explained to hosts Ant and Dec before her audition: "I've been singing since a toddler. I've come to Britain's Got Talent today because it's my dream to make it worldwide."

But kicking off with a performance of Jessie J's Mamma Knows Best, Simon Cowell was immediately left unimpressed.

He moaned: "I've heard that song so many times.

"I want to hear something different to whatever anyone else is singing."

Under pressure, Hope instead performed Maxwell’s cover of Kate Bush classic This Woman’s Work, to a standing ovation.

David Walliams raved: "That was incredible, you've got a great voice, well done."

Amanda added: "I think that you are a star in the making."

Alesha told the youngster: "You sang it beautifully and I am very excited for you. that was a great audition."

Even Simon was eventually won over.

He said: "Sixteen years old, you sung that very very well and I like your personality."
