Britain's Got Talent is now officially underway and, as we already reported, Ant & Dec were sighted in Maynooth last week - presumably for the show's later stages.

That wasn't the only Irish connection, however. Last night saw Leah Barniville of Raoath, Co. Meath, take to the stage to perform a classical song in Italian for the judges and the response was, well, operatic.

Leah received a standing ovation from the entire audience and the four judges - David Walliams, Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon - as well. It's a beautiful piece of music and it's clear that Leah's got more than enough to talent to make it to the final.

Take a look.
