City's got talent... thousands turn out for auditions.

THOUSANDS of hopefuls descended on Cardiff's Swalec Stadium over the weekend for the latest round of auditions for TV show Britain's Got Talent.

Performers desperate for their place in the spotlight braved the cold to queue for hours on Saturday and Sunday. Duo Tierney Fork and Letitia Sannino travelled from their homes in Gloucester for their short audition in front of producers yesterday.

Despite having to restart their performance after Tierney "completely messed up", the teenagers were hopeful their "mash-up" rendition of Do it Like a Dude, Daydreamers and I'm Telling You, was good enough to impress the judges.

"I went in there shaking because I was so nervous," said Tierney, 16. "I thought that would go when I started singing, but it didn't - I was shaking the whole way through.

"But we've both auditioned before, and those auditions were much worse, so we are hoping to get further this time. They said we'll hear after Christmas."

Swansea call centre worker Grace Parry said: "I'm a singer, songwriter and pianist, so I'm going to be singing one of my own songs. I'm nervous because this is the first time I've auditioned for the show."

Following the Cardiff auditions, the show's production team will continue to scout the UK ahead of the judges' audition tour which is scheduled to take place in early 2013.
