Just wondered if many people have auditioned this time around. Sophie went to Manchester last week and had a fantastic time. She made it through Stage A and in Stage B got to sing to vocal coach Donna Soto-Moretini who was very encouraging to her and Sophie found it all a really great experience. She did an interview and now we just have to wait and see if she’s got through this time. All in all she found the process much more enjoyable than X Factor and BGT partly because of the very different type of audition but also the people she met. Keepping our fingers crossed now.
