It’s rare to see Simon Cowell smiling uncontrollably and telling a contestant that they are the best he’s ever seen, but Asanda Jezile brought out a side of Simon the world rarely gets to see.
The 11-year-old has dreams to become a pop star and looks up to her favorite singer, Rihanna. She’s got a diva-lied attitude that really helps her control the stage, which is unseen for children her age. She went on stage to perform “Diamonds” by Rihanna at the seventh season of Britain’s Got Talent and the judges absolutely loved it. Unfortunately for her, she didn’t get into the finals of the competition but was offered a recording contract from Simon, knowing that she would one day be a huge hit.
