Sydnie Christmas looked emotional as she was given a kiss by a loved one following her Britain's Got Talent semi-final performance on Wednesday.

The singer, 28, received a standing ovation from the audience at Hammersmith's Eventim Apollo after singing her version of Frank Sinatra's My Way. 

Judge Amanda Holden was bought to tears, while Simon Cowell, Bruno Tonioli and Alesha Dixon were in utter awe of her talent.

After the performance, a teary-eyed Sydnie was seen sharing a kiss with a man before embracing her nearest and dearest. 

Head judge Simon, 64, waved to fans outside the venue as he made his departure following the show.

The music mogul was dressed casually for the evening in a dark jumper and matching trousers along with a pair of glasses. 

Sydnie won the third live semi-final show and is through to the final on Sunday night.

The budding performer couldn't believe the reaction she received from judges and the audience following her performance. 

After her performance, all four judges were quickly up on their feet to applaud Sydnie.

Amanda said: 'I have to sit down, I thought I was going to pass out during that. Honestly, Sydnie when we saw your audition I had so many people come up and stop me.

'And tonight you have done even better, I just cannot believe your capacity and your fire and your strength.'

Bruno added: 'I cannot believe it. The way she builds up to the high note, hitting it with such power and clarity. It was stunning, stunning.'

Alesha said: 'My heart was pounding the whole way through that. That is the job of a singer, you are a superstar in the making.

'It was just, it wasn't a 10, it was an 11 in my opinion. If it wasn't for people like you, I wouldn't bother making this show.

'And you have to wonder who were these idiots you auditioned for that didn't give you the break before, they must be did. The only people you need to trust is the audience, the audience always get it right.'

Sydnie also hit back at fix claims after she was embroiled row because of her previous musical theatre performing background.

Before she graced the stage in a glamorous black suit and trendy Doc Martens, Sydnie urged she had no previous experience on the West End during her intro. 

Sydnie has worked on cruise ships including the Royal Caribbean International, where she starred as Rizzo in the musical Grease.

She made her debut in London as one of the lead voices in Lazarus, featuring the music of David Bowie, at the King's Cross Theatre and shared a snap backstage of Hollywood actor Woody Harrelson after he attended the show.

She then went on to appear in a German production of Starlight Express in 2019 as Belle the Bar Car.

At a press event both Simon and Amanda they thought Sydnie had what it takes to win it all.

When asked who would win the show, Simon told reporters: 'I think it's Sydnie, yeah.'
