Susan Boyle has emerged as the odds-on favourite to win Britain’s Got Talent.

The Scottish singer, who recently appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, has been given odds of 4/6 by William Hill to be crowned this year’s champion.

Staffordshire teenager Shaun Smith, who won a standing ovation for his version of Bill Withers’s ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’, is currently in second place with odds of 11/2.

Pizza delivery man Jamie Pugh has been given a 6/1 chance, while ten-year-old Hollie Steel is sitting on a 9/1 possibility of triumphing. Student Sue Son, who was told to ditch her partner by the judges, has been given odds of 25/1.

Boyle shot to international stardom after wowing audiences with her performance of ‘I Dream A Dream’ from Les Miserables, while a YouTube clip of her appearance has been viewed more than 100 million times.

Move over Susan Jamie Pugh is here

Move over Susan Boyle, Jamie Pugh is hereMove over Susan Boyle, Jamie Pugh is here Jamie Pugh, a 37 year old Warehouse worker and pizza delivery driver from Gwent, hasn’t slept in three nights and he’s worried his nerves might just prove too much.

As he explains, “I suffer from severe stage fright, it has totally crippled me, and I’ve come today to see if I can get through 3 minutes.”

Nerves can often affect the voice producing an uncontrolled sound that would certainly not impress the judges. Can Jamie get his nerves under control for long enough to impress?

Performing in front of the live audience and Judges is miles away from Jamie’s day to day job, “in the day time I work three days a week driving a van and in the evenings I deliver pizza. I’m just a simple bloke from the Valleys, but my dream is to sing at the Royal Variety in front of a live orchestra”. But Jamie’s biggest worry is walking out on stage and freezing, but with partner Donna watching on helplessly in the audience its time to see if Jamie can finally conquer his stage fright.

Singing Bring Him Home from Les Miserables, Donna, his proud partner is up on her feet in the audience looking emotional as Jamie starts his faultless and emotional performance.

All three Judges look spellbound and at the end of the song the whole theatre is on its feet, bringing tears and a look of shock to Jamie’s face, reminiscent of the scenes we saw when Susan Boyle performed.

The Judges give their verdict: Amanda, “it is a beautiful song and that was amazing.” With Piers adding “I wasn’t expecting that kind of performance from you. You deliver pizza’s at night for goodness sake and you come on this stage, one of the biggest talent shows in the world and do a performance like that, I thought it was incredible.” And Simon adds, “I think I just got how important the last 3 mins of your life just were, and to get the reaction you just got from the audience must be unbelievable. It’s people like you the reason why we come to Wales every year, I think you could be a special talent, but you have to start believing in yourself”

A shell-shocked and emotional Jamie walks off stage saying, “for this brief moment I feel complete”.

Get the hankies ready for Saturday night’s show, it’s set to be another tear-jerker.
