Teen wows judges to go through to next stage of singing contest


AN ILKESTON teenager is celebrating making is just one performance away from singing at the O2 in London.

Alice Maciborskyj, 16, wowed judges with her version of the Labyrinth song Earthquake and her own song Butterflies at the regional finals of the national competition, Live and Unsigned.

Her next audition will be at the area finals, being held in Huddersfield on May 20.

Alice said: “I couldn’t believe it when my name was called out as an area finalist.

“There weren’t many solo performers so I thought the places would go to bands.

“I’m so excited at getting through and can’t wait to get a new song written for the next round of the competition.”
