Jamie’s Got Talent!

posted on 18 August 2011

The final of the Wildcats exciting singing competition ‘Wakefield’s Got Talent’ will be held in just 2 days at the Castleford derby game at The Rapid Solicitors Stadium.

The competition has now been narrowed down to just four, talented finalists who will be singing for the whopping £1000 prize this weekend and the opportuniuty to perform infront of thousands at the final game of the season.

Ebonie Preston, Amy Cunningham, Jamie Kelly and Leanne Crowther are the four lucky finalists that have competed in a number of heats over the past two months to get to this final stage. In the run up to the game, we will be featuring all the finalists each day to get to know a little bit more about them.

Yesterday we spoke to 17 year old Amy Cunningham and today we have caught up with Jamie Kelly.

Jamie is a 19 year old singer/song writer who has just finished studying for his degree at Leeds College of Music. Jamie stunned audiences in the earlier stages of the competition with his version of Ed Sheeran’s A Team and has now sailed through to the final round.

Jamie likes experimenting with all genres of music and likes to put his twist onto a whole range of songs. He has confirmed that he will be singing Chris Brown’s Crawl in the final and explained how it feels being the only boy in the final, “I feel that there’s a bit more pressure on me being the only boy, but I’m also really pleased that I’m the only one that has made it this far.”

“I would be so happy if I won. I have been saving up for years for my own recording equipment so that I can get my music out to everyone and the prize money would allow me to actually go ahead and buy it!”

To see Jamie perform his final song, along with the other three amazing finalists, make sure you get down to the game early on Saturday evening at The Rapid Solicitors Stadium. The singers will be performing from 3pm in both the Cats Bar and live on the pitch in front of thousands- come and chose your winner!
