Sydnie Christmas Says She’s Going to Sing a Song Simon Cowell Hates…And It Changes Everything

Over the last couple of hours a clip from Britain’s Got Talent started gaining recognition from all over the world.

The clip contained the audition of Sydnie Christmas. In the clip, she is heard telling the judges that she’s an aspiring singer who just moved to London.

Sydnie is charming and funny as she introduces herself. She’s an easy contestant to root for. 

Then she tells the judges which song she plans to sing for them; Tomorrow from the hit musical Annie. The crowd goes silent and you can almost hear Simon Cowell’s eyes rolling.

He doesn’t like that song and doesn’t appreciate when singers use it as their audition song. But that doesn’t deter Sydnie from singing it any way.

She jokes that the last time she sang Tomorrow was when she first started singing at the age of 4. She’s now 28.

And then, with her two grandmothers in the audience cheering her on, the song begins…and so do the tears.

Here is Sydnie Christmas’s full Britain’s Got Talent audition below:

As the song came to an end, Sydnie was met with a roar from the crowd and a standing ovation, the four judges included. 

Judge Amanda Holden praised Sydnie for how “naturally funny, warm, and brilliant” her presence was and raved about her “heartfelt” and “beautiful” version of Tomorrow. “That was the best version I have ever heard in my life, so I’m going to do this…”

And that’s when Holden hit the Golden Buzzer.

As one commenter wrote, “What was that? This was not an audition. It was an experience. Bless her.”

And as so many other people admitted, her rendition of the song was unlike anything they’ve ever heard before. Simon even agreed.

“Everyone’s aware, it is tough to get the break for something that you really love. You so deserve what you just got,” Simon told her. “Your control was amazing. And I used to hate that song. And now I absolutely love it.”

“Good for you. That was brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.”
