Saturday night was full of talented young performers - not on TV talent shows but at Fraserburgh’s own Darlymple Hall for Tesco’s Got Talent 2012.
Ten acts took to the stage to perform to an audience and judges to fight for the place as winner of this year’s event.
The first half opened with three eight year-old dancers called SKE who impressed both the judges and the audience and set a great standard for the rest of the show.
Next was Emma West who sang note perfect to ‘Hallelujah’ followed by three year-old Libby Jane who initially had a little stage fright, but with the help of the audience and a judge, sang ‘Away in a Manger’.
Next up was Leigha from Strichen who sang and played guitar to Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ to which one judge said: “You were outstanding to be able to play the guitar and sing so well at the same time is rare.”
A tribute act called ‘Fruitloaf’ performed next although there was a few technical hiccups with the song skipping.
After a short interval ‘Angels Choir’ comprising 40 girls sang ‘Edge of Glory’ followed by eight year-old Morven Airdrie who sang ‘You and I’ by Lady Gaga.
Dance company 6.10 then put on a comedic, yet technically perfect dance to Flashdance’s ‘What a feeling’.
The penultimate act was 16 year-old Madison Keith who sang an emotional rendition of ‘Jar of Hearts’ with one of the judges saying: “You have a very good chance of winning this.”
Last but not least were the Tesco employees dancing to ‘Time Warp’ which ended the show on a great high note.
Results saw third place given to the 6.10 dancers, in second was Leigha and the winner was Madison Keith for her outstanding performance.
Handing over the award to a speechless Madison was last year’s winner Karen Masson who delighted the audience by performing before the winner was announced.
