Sam Kelly didn't expect to get through his Britain's Got Talent audition!

Britain's Got Talent - Sam Kelly

Britain's Got Talent hopeful Sam Kelly has said that he didn't expect to get through his audition for the show!

The singer wowed the judges on this year's opening show, performing an emotional cover of Adele's Make You Feel My Love.

The 19-year-old is now preparing to take part in tonight's latest live semi final, but admits: "I did [BGT] to get a professional opinion on my vocals, and didn’t expect to get through or anything!"

Understandably, Sam is quite nervous: "I've never played on live television before! Simon is a bit intimidating, and he seemed to like my audition so I hope that I can justify their decision to put me through."

And if he won the £500,000 prize money? Sam says: "I'd love to do something to get more kids into music at my high school and where I come from in Norfolk - it was quite lonely being one of the only serious young musicians around."

He adds: "I'm just trying to do my own thing and make music because I love doing it. I feel a lot of people nowadays forget about the music and focus more on trying to make money. I would love to win but only if I can succeed playing the music that I love to play.
