After knocking the socks off Britain's Got Talent SA singer sets sights on Eurovision

Asanda Jezile sung her way onto Britain's Got Talent five years ago but she isn't finished she is competing for a place in the Eurovision song contest.

Asanda first emerged on the scene as an 11-year-old keen on impressing judges on the talent show, hoping to impress the judges including the sour-faced Simon Cowell.

Briefly.co.za learned that she wowed the judges and crowd with her rendition of Beyoncé’s"If I Were A Boy" according to thesouthafrican.com.

Eurovision 2018 will be hosted in Portugal's capital Lisbon on Saturday 12 May. Asanda qualifies to take part as she is a British citizen but her parents are staunch South Africans.
