George, aged 11, was chosen by judge Danny Jones (of the band McFly) to go through to next week’s final where the public will vote for the overall winner.

Four finalists will be performing in the final with the winner receiving a £30,000 bursary towards their musical education as well as a family holiday to Orlando courtesy of Universal Studios and Norwegian Air.

George sang Queen’s Radio Ga Ga in Saturday’s (August 22) semi-final and afterwards judge Danny announced: “I just want to say how proud I am of you. You each have your own reasons for doing music, you’ve made this the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make. Going through to the final is going to be George.”
