Two young singing hopefuls from London are seen wowing the Britain’s Got Talent judges tonight.

Malakai Paul bursts into tears during his audition prompting Alesha Dixon to rush on stage to comfort him.

The nine-year-old, from north London is allowed to try again and wins the judges’ hearts with his swooping voice while trying out for the ITV1 show.

The youngster himself warned before: “Sometimes I get a bit nervous and get stage fright.”

Simon Cowell tells him: “What I like about you - you’re brave. You got off to a bad start, picked yourself up and people are going to like you a lot.”

And Dixon declares: “You are a star. It’s a natural raw talent. That’s what we’re looking for.”

The judges are also dazzled by another school-age soul sensation, Molly Rainford, 11.

Molly, from Barking, wows the stars, with Dixon telling her: “You sing with such maturity and control - you’ve just blown me away.”

And Cowell agrees, telling her: “You’ve got soul - I really do believe that.”
