Britain’s Got Talent 2017: Harry Gardner audition reduces the judges to tears!

Harry Gardner reduced the Britain’s Got Talent judges to tears on Britain’s Got Talent this evening.

Britain’s Got Talent contestant Harry Gardner performed a song he wrote for his grandmother on tonight’s episode.

Harry, 16, is a student and singer from Essex. Harry has been singing, writing songs and playing the piano since he was eight years old.

Harry performed his original song “Not Alone”, which he wrote after his grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

Harry performed his original song two weeks before he will have to perform it again at his grandmothers funeral.

Harry said before his audition: “The biggest audience I’ve probably ever performed to as a school assembly so it’s a big step up to be here today, it’s quite scary.

“I just want to share my music with other people and see if they can relate.”

Simon asked before Harry’s audition if his nan has heard the song before, Harry said: “I did play it to her,

“She wasn’t aware of what was going on, she looked happy – It was nice.”

Following Harry’s beautiful and emotional original song, a tearful Amanda Holden said: “Harry, that really moved me.

“I really just wished your grandma could see what you’ve done today because I’m sure she’d be so proud of you.”

Alesha Dixon added: “I think it takes real courage to put your heart and soul and vulnerability into a song like you just did, it was a fantastic audition.”

Harry received four yeses from the judges.

In a sad twist Harry revealed in a sad post on Facebook, that his nan passed away earlier this week – just days before his audition was due to air.

He wrote: “So sad to say my nan, one of the most influential people in my life, has passed away,

“Thank you to everyone who has supported my song ‘Not Alone’ which was written about her and is continuing to help raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s Research UK. Goodnight nan x”

Britain’s Got Talent continues next weekend on ITV.
