Earlier in the show, Simon said this was the best final he could recall in years.

‘Everyone has stepped up their game but we also have acts from all over the world competing which has made people need to step up,’ he said.

As she explained ahead of her final performance, she is working hard to be cast in a West End show and ‘couldn’t believe’ everything that had happened since auditioning for BGT.

‘Singing at the Apollo was life changing. I’ve clung on to everything the judges have said because I didn’t believe fully in myself,’ she said.

‘Winning would mean I’ve done the right thing in going for my dreams.’

Sydnie was the first act this season to receive the Golden Buzzer, courtesy of Amanda Holden, who was left astounded by her rendition of Tomorrow from Annie during the first episode.

Britain’s Got Talent is streaming on ITVX.
