The Greatest Showman singer Loren Allred, who secured her place in the Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals early on in the competition, gave a powerful performance of You Say by Lauren Daigle on Thursday, June 2 and succeeded in earning herself a place in the final. Read more about Loren here.
“We need another girl in the final,” said Amanda Holden following Golden Buzzer act Loren’s performance – but some viewers are up in arms about the fact that someone already in the public eye as a professional singer has a place in the ITV talent series.
Loren explained the reason for her appearing on BGT and said she wanted to step out of her usual behind-the-scenes singing role. In the 2017 film The Greatest Showman she sang mega hit Never Enough, a song that was dubbed over by actress Rebecca Ferguson in the final cut.
