FOUR finalists from this year’s Voice of South Bucks competition have been scouted by hit-reality TV show, The X-Factor.
The four singers have been approached by producers of the show to audition in a week’s time.
It comes after competition organisers invited a talent scout as well as celebrity astrologer, Russell Grant, to attend the final at the Red Lion pub in Knotty Green.
An 18-year-old girl from Penn won this year’s competition and, along with three other finalists, she is expected to audition at the end of the month.
First-placed Hannah Walters, runner-up Madison Doey from Chalfont St Peter, Ollie Atkins from Beaconsfield and last year’s winner Alex Riddell from Medmenham have all been invited to audition.
Kieron May, from the production company Talkback Thames, said: “News has spread about the amazing line-up of singers there are in the competition.
“So, you never know, the winner of The Voice of South Bucks might just produce the next winner of ‘The X-Factor’!”
The night itself was full of great entertainment and singing as the acts battled it out for the top prize.
Star judge and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant, Russell Grant, said: “They all have amazing voices. This place is so unique. Everybody in here feels like they’ve stepped in to another planet.”
He added: “This is what it is all about. It’s been a great evening.”
Landlady Tina Massie said: “What an amazing night. It was a packed house with a glittering array of talent and beautiful voices.
“In the end I think we had a worthy winner.”
As part of her winners prize, Hannah won £250 in cash and a trophy donated by Shoebedo in Maxwell Road.
She also received a popstar makeover, a professional photoshoot, a pair of designer sunglasses and VIP season passes for Bekonscot model village.
