Robbie Firmin may be small, but he has a big personality and voice! He showed off both of those things in his adorable “Britain’s Got Talent” audition.
Robbie auditioned for the show back in 2011, when he was seven years old. The adorable little boy wore a fedora and a suit that was slightly too big for him. But there was a good reason why he wore this outfit—he was emulating his idol, Frank Sinatra.
In an interview before his audition, Robbie said that he was going on “Britain’s Got Talent” for his family.
“It’s my mum’s birthday soon, and I want to give her the best birthday present ever. Winning Britain’s Got Talent.”
Soon after that, it was time for Robbie’s audition. He stood in the middle of the stage, looking tiny and excited.
Robbie began his audition in a very memorable way: he tried to set his aunt up with one of the judges, Louis! The judges all cracked up at Robbie’s request.
Then, it was time for Robbie to begin singing. The music started, and he began crooning out “My Way.”
The little boy did a great job with the song! He put his heart and soul into the performance, and the judges and audience both loved it. At one point, the audience began clapping, but Robbie shushed them and told them he still had more left to sing!
After Robbie finished singing, the judges gave him uniformly positive feedback.
“Robbie, I thought it had everything,” one of the judges told him. “You toyed with the audience, and they were up, they were down, they were swaying…Robbie, you’re a star!”
All three judges gave Robbie a ‘yes,’ and he moved onto the finals!
While Robbie didn’t end up winning that season, he certainly gave one of the most memorable performances of the year. Robbie’s audition video went viral on YouTube, receiving over 24 million views! Everyone loved little Robbie’s soulful performance.
In the years since appearing on “Britain’s Got Talent,” Robbie has kept busy.
Robbie is now a teenager, and he still loves singing more than anything in the world. He regularly posts videos of himself singing to his YouTube channel. This includes an amazing rendition of “You Raise Me Up.”
Robbie also performed a great rendition of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” at Westfield Mall in London. Everyone in the crowd clapped and cheered as he put his all into the song.
