Opera has been pushed to the forefront of British television screens after singer Lucy Kay made waves and wowed Simon Cowell with her rendition of Nella Fantasia.
The 25-year-old musician was voted through to the final of Britain's Got Talent, after a powerful and moving performance.
She also got a standing ovation from the judges after winning the hearts of the public.
The Glasgow-born singer described how she had previously been bullied for her love of classical music, which has now seen her rise to the top of her game.
Music mogul Simon Cowell was particularly impressed with her performance. He said: "Incredible. I mean, you literally saved the show. I was on my way home and then you came back and most importantly you proved a point to yourself. You have got rid of all your problems in your past.”
Fellow judge Amanda Holden said that it was one of the most "haunting" pieces of music she has heard in a long time.
She added: "You came back looking like a star, sounding like a star. Your voice control was incredible and I'm so happy we found you on this show. Amazing."
Thousands of hopefuls had applied for a chance to make it to the live semi-finals, but only 45 acts have made it through.
Of those who did get through to the live semi-finals, they are set to battle it out on the ITV1 show for the prize of £250,000 and a spot at the Royal Variety Performance.
Ms Kay also admitted that one of the musicians she looked up to is Susan Boyle, but it remains to be seen whether she will be able to follow in her footsteps.
Praising her performance, Alesha Dixon said: "Lucy I adore you and I know you have been on such a personal journey. You just transported me in that performance. I think you are a star."
The semi-finals are set to be held on May 30th, at 7.30pm while the final is on June 7th.
