Budding young actors, dancers and singers left judges spellbound in this year’s Fiorentini’s Got Talent show.

Joseph Marcell, aka Geoffrey from the US sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel Air joined MTV presenter Kat B, Australian Pink Floyd lead singer Alex McNamara, Hackney Empire’s artistic director Susie McKenna and Cllr Jonathan McShane judging the 7-18 year olds from the Anna Fiorentini Theatre and Film School.

Mr McNamara said: “I can occasionally be a bit of a harsh critic and I feared that my typical honest feedback might just scar a few inspirational young performers.

“I needn’t have worried, I really was amazed by the talent on offer.”

Aithana Padori nabbed first place singing Birdy’s Skinny Love, while Nadia Haloua came second with a rendition of Gone.
