A violinist named Lethys Rowbotham made it all the way to the British Talent Show’s eighth series final. She was 24 years old and a resident of Surrey at the time of her audition. Prior to her audition, Rowbotham said that when she was four years old, her parents gave her a plastic violin instead of the one she wanted, but as she got older, they gave her a real violin.
Three songs, including “Good Feeling” by Flo Rida, “Demons” by Imagine Dragons, and “Counting Stars” by One Republic, were performed by Rowbotham at her audition. She then proceeded to the following round and the semifinals.
She played snake charmer music during the semifinals, followed by many “electro” tracks. She proceeded to the judges’ vote, but this was derailed when she only earned two votes from Simon and David while Amanda and Alyosha voted against her in favor of the Innova Irish Dance Company. However, it was discovered that Rowbotham would go on to the final because she finished second in the last public poll.
She sang a cover of Evanescence’s “Bring Me To Life” throughout the competition, but she also began singing midway through. She came in eighth place overall after the final.
