A pupil at Black’s Academy, 13-year-old Louise has always loved music.
She entered the London Trocadero talent search as a boost to her confidence and to prove to herself that she could do it.
Out of 43 hopefuls, Louise got down to the final 20 contestants.Had she been a winner, she could have found herself studying for a year at Pineapple Dance Studios in London.
Although she did not win, Louise said that she had been really pleased to get as far as she did.She flew to London with her mother, Betty, and spent Friday and Saturday at the talent show.
On Friday she performed as Britney and did a set dance for the judges.
She said: ‘I was really nervous because I was the first one to perform.
But in a way that was good, because I got to talk to the judges beforehand and they were nice.’
