Britain's Got Talent Meltdown! 10 Year Old Singer Breaks Down On Live TV

| Filed under: AnglophiliaSimon Cowell

Little Hollie Steel is definitely not made of steel!

The aspiring singer made it all the way to the semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent, quite an accomplishment.

During the live show on Friday, unfortunately, Hollie's nerves got the best of her and the child forgot her lyrics, with her performance crumbling shortly thereafter. Steel began crying and it was quite sad to watch.

The child begged to start over again, and she was told that she couldn't. However, Simon Cowell, who is the creator and also a judge on Britain's Got Talent vetoed his own producers and let Hollie perform again later on in the broadcast.

WTF????

That is sooooo not fair!

Yes, she is 10. But there are no "do-vers" in competition shows like that!

Don't you agree????

CLICK HERE to watch Hollie crumble!

Update: The judges put her through to the final! WTF????

That's BULLSHIT!

Aren't there some "official rules" that this is breaking????

Everyone who gets flustered from now on should get the chance to start over again too!

If Susan Boyle hits a wrong note on Saturday's finals, stop and do-over!!!!!!!

  1. 1

    Simon did the right thing. If people are going to give her sympathy votes, they would've done it whether or not she got a 2nd chance.



  2. 2

    P.S. Her cry sounds really fake.



  3. 3

    Her crying seemed incredibly fake. I never saw any tears, just some good old whining.



  4. 4

    Really? You're complaing about a 10-year-old girl, Perez?

    Fuck off.



  5. 5

    Well I'm stuck on this one because she's just a kid but on the other hand it wouldn't be fair to the other contestants. What if some other contestant messes up? Are they going to give them a second chance? I just hope this doesn't happen again.



  6. 6

    Part of me really doesn't want to watch this, but it's like a train wreck. But mad props to Simon Cowell for letting her have a do-over. She's clearly a talented little girl, and she was only nervous. Hell, I'm 23, and if you put me under that sort of pressure, I might very well forget the words and cry, too!



  7. 7

    Children should not be put under this much pressure. The limelight is traumatic and we can see from all the child stars who grew up that they always have major issues from becoming famous too soon.



  8. 8

    She's young. You can't blame her for freaking out! Have some sympathy!



  9. 9

    Come on perez! She deserved her second chance! Shes 10!



  10. 10

    Nice lesson for the kid: Cry and you'll get your way. Christ.



  11. 11

    When Simon is on America's Got Talent, there is no do overs allowed. Double standard.



  12. 12

    Her crying was COMPLETELY fake. Obviously. But, Perez she is only 10 years old. Give her a break.



  13. 13

    What were you doing when you were 10, Perez? Picking fruits on a farm? She has more talent that you could ever dream of.



  14. 14

    …………………………………..right….



  15. 15

    it's understandable that she messed up, but what is she going to do if she's performing on a different stage and messes up. I understand she's 10 but if she wants to be in the business she needs to learn to keep going.



  16. 16

    I was told by a assistant to one of the PA's from the show that this whole thing was planned out and that the little girl was actually coached to this in the middle of the performance. They sold it to her and her mom and told them they would get the "sympathy vote"

    The girl did not even shed a real tear.
    BAD ACTING!!!!



  17. 17

    Poor kid. She didn't do that bad she only forgot a few of the lyrics. It's hard for anyone let alone a kid to get up and sing in front of that many people.



  18. 18

    fuck leave her alone perez….. god



  19. 19

    I think Simon's just being nice

  20. jkf says – reply to this


    20

    first time I agreed with simon, you suck perez



  21. 21

    There's only a few places lower we can go, right?



  22. 22

    Simon Cowell does have a heart!



  23. 23

    I thought you were just being snarky…but this girl isn't really crying! Do you see any tears? Nope. I empathize with her being so young…but, you are right…it's a competition for better or worse.



  24. 24

    Whiny kid. Buck up Sally, there are no do-overs in life. Sometimes you fail and that's just how it goes.



  25. 25

    FRASIER HAD GAY MARRAIGE TODAY!!!



  26. 26

    Simon has heart for Britain's Got Talent, Not America's Got Talent. Double satndard



  27. 27

    You're an asshole Perez.



  28. 28

    she shouldnt have got through so everyone the fs up tmrw should get a 2nd shot.
    if she breaks down in the semi final what will she be like in the actual live final tmrw. ridiculous!

  29. pj88 says – reply to this


    29

    poor little girl…. but, you gotta have nerves in this business. I'm glad to see Simon give her a second chance. Now.. would he give Susan Boyle a second chance?……..



  30. 30

    her cry was fake!



  31. 31

    so fake! shes a little actress,



  32. 32

    Perez shut the f*ck up ! I'm tired of hearing complain about dumb shit like this. That and gay rights. Get over it.



  33. 33

    perez she's a child. she's so cute and innocent and is YOUNG give her a break. she doesn't deserve harsh criticism at such a young age. leave her be. im glad simon gave her another chance, she's adorable and is amazingly talented.



  34. 34

    CHILDREN DO NOT BELONG ON THIS KIND OF TV SHOW!



  35. 35

    My sister fake cries like that when she wants her way.
    I don't buy it.



  36. 36

    eh hello perez did u even watch the vid? the girl is TEN…of course they gave her a do-over!! i can't believe you wouldn't!!!



  37. 37

    First time I disagree with you here pumpkin.. I think Simon did the right thing, otherwise people would have been hating on that show… it's all about ratings… and honestly, who knows if that second try would even warrant her a win…



  38. 38

    She is 10, for God's sake. Let her be, let her sing, she is a brave little girl who deserves nothing less than our compassion.



  39. 39

    Your such a prick Perez, she's just a child.

  40. merka says – reply to this


    40

    I do feel sorry for her, buut the crying was soo fake!

  41. jham says – reply to this


    41

    ha! perez, give her a break man, she's 10! dayum, you rule with an iron fist!!



  42. 42

    when you get your own world famous talent show you can make your own rules too perez, luv ya, but your way off on this one



  43. 43

    what if she wins the whole thing half way through the perfomance to the freeking queen and cant cope witht he pressure strats crying. what will happen then. there shouldnt have got trhogu grrrr



  44. 44

    Fuck that, no redos.



  45. 45

    Perez, This is not the Nazi talent hour. She made a mistake. Simon practically owns the bloody show. What he says goes. If SuBo make a mistake and Simon allowed her to start over and everyone felt that was unfair, would you be the one to say she deserves another chance?



  46. 46

    NO FUCKING FAIR! THIS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED!



  47. 47

    OMG stfu Perez, this has really annoyed me tonight, poor Hollie is the one getting blamed for this whole drama, yet you didn't mention that her parents were there parading her like a show pony. There was too much pressure on her, and her parents should be ashamed for putting her through this, but having said that she was a lot braver than people 5 times her age and she has alot of talent too (she was a great dancer in her first audition aswell as a singer). Im glad they gave her a second chance, because she proved how good she was.



  48. 48

    If her mother thought her child was mature enough to audition for this talent show, then her daughter must be mature enough to sing on a stage in front of thousands. I feel sorry for her, because that's so unfortunate to forget lyrics, but I don't think she should get any sort of favoritism just because she's a child.

    PS - I didn't see a single tear on that little girl's face.



  49. 49

    She's fucking ten years old! Leave her alone, although I agree she shouldn't have been allowed to perform again and TALK ABOUT OTHER ACTS THAN SUSAN BOYLE!!!!! I don't think either of them are going to win tbh…



  50. 50

    wtf..?
    She's not even actually crying.. just making the fake crying sounds..



  51. 51

    Shut it, Perez. For as much as I love this blog, she's a little kid—and you have no right going after a little kid.



  52. 52

    this was so unfair. yes she's a kid and whatever you like, BUT she did not deserve a do over. if someone, like susan, were to mess up, they would not have given her another shot at all. BUT because this is a kid, they give her another shot!?? this is a COMPETITION and all should be treated the same.



  53. 53

    NO SHE NOT OF GOT ANOTHER CHANCE! CHEAT CHEAT CHEAT! WHO CARES IF SHE IS 10 YEARS OLD? IF SHE CAN'T HANDLE IT THEN SHE SHOULDN'T OF GONE ON THE SHOW IN THE FIRST PLACE! UGLY LITTLE RATTTY SPOILT BRAT! SHE SHOULD NOT OF GOT THROUGH! IF IT WAS A GROWN MAN THEY WOULDN'T GET A SECOND CHANCE!
    GO PEREZ!



  54. 54

    completely agree perez… she shouldnt have been put thru.. cry and u get what u want…



  55. 55

    Maybe not fair, but she`s 10! I wouldnt want to break her heart either. The adults can deal with what they are dealt, but children shouldnt have to. Im glad Simon gave her a second chance. Yay for Simon!



  56. 56

    Poor thing. It must have been frightening for her. You might have a little sympathy too if you got your head out of Susan Boyle's ass.



  57. 57

    Simon has a heart…amazing



  58. 58

    Good grief! She's 10 years old! Lay off of her! Good for Simon!

  59. EMJ3 says – reply to this


    59

    You're an ass Perez. What is it to you?? Its Simons show, if he wants to let her then just deal with it instead of acting like a child yourself.



  60. 60

    I saw tears and i was watchin it on TV in england so you can suck it! she was soo good, she's ten and the pressure was too much so they were right to let her go again, her singing first time round was good anyway so its not like she sang any better the second time



  61. 61

    she is only a little girl so dont be mean!
    simon only vetoed the producers so he looked like the good guy giving her a second chance!
    i hope susan boyle messes up on saturday because i dont like her and she is a total wacko!



  62. 62

    omg perez leave her alone!!

    i cried when i saw her freeze and cry

    ;(



  63. 63

    she's a little girl
    have some compassion! my god!

  64. CRS29 says – reply to this


    64

    What a spoiled brat! By giving into her behavior, they are creating future problems when she grows up with a sense of entitlement.



  65. 65

    i was trying to find out if it was her or the music that threw her off because she seemed confused by the music!



  66. 66

    I agree.



  67. 67

    are you fucking kidding me with this? i have more sympathy for Britney Spears!



  68. 68

    it was so try hard I couldnt stand it, she has the rest of her life to enter competitions whereas for some of the other contestants it will prob be their only chance. I agree that everyone should get the same treatment and personally I dont think children should be allowed to enter caus they always do get sympathy votes!!



  69. 69

    what a sweetheart….



  70. 70

    i was watching it on television and she really got upset and she is only ten so leave her alone.



  71. 71

    dude.

    shes 10.

    lay off.

    kudos to her for getting up there and finishing!



  72. 72

    Well, they did have to take into account that she's 10 YEARS OLD.
    I do agree to an extent though, I doubt if Susan Boyle started crying she'd get another go, but she's a grown woman..

  73. amani says – reply to this


    73

    Omygod asif ANYONE's gonna buy her CD [come ooooon people]. 'Ahh let's vote, she's a kid'. Fuck that, I don't judge by age, i judge by weather I like you or not, and I even prefer Britney over this shit..



  74. 74

    WTF kind of BS is that?!? This is one of the easiest songs to sing!! She forgot about 4 words in that line. the freakin' edelweiss is a blossom of snow that blooms and grows, blooms and grows forever… thereafter it blesses my homeland forever. Brave my ass - they should boot her from the show.



  75. 75

    whiney little bitch and her mother probably pressures her into doing that shit, she better not win



  76. 76

    Lighten up! It's just a tv show!If it were a political election-then you would have something to bitch about!



  77. 77

    SHUT UP PEREZ she's just a child.
    She won't win anyway, they are just being nice to a little kid.
    What's wrong you?



  78. 78

    ohh come on perez shes fucking 10 years old, give her a break, its not the same that a 10 year old messed up that if boyle did it, you are just being mean and stupid, and i bet that if you didnt love boyle you wouldnt be saying this, shes TEN back off



  79. 79

    she's 10 and under a lot of pressure!



  80. 80

    YOUR COMMENTS ARE INCREDIBLY MEAN!!! GET A LIFE!! I ONLY MADE AN ACCOUNT TO POST THIS MSG!!! A FRIEND E-MAILED ME THIS AND I'M APPOULED!!! YOU CAN SEE YOU HAVE NEVER WOKED WITH KIDS B4!!! LEAVE THIS POOR GIRL ALONE SHE KNEW THAT SHE WAS PERFORMING TO MORE THAN 10 MILLION PEOPLE!!! HE IS ONLY 10!!!



  81. 81

    wtf perez she is a little girl!! give her a break you dumbass



  82. 82

    This made me cry!
    I hate seeing people crying. Plus she is a baby and has been doing this for a shorter amount of time than Susan has.

    LEAVE HER ALONE!



  83. 83

    i dont think it was fair! shes to yong and she cant do that in front of the queen now can she!



  84. 84

    Defo agree with Perez!!! Ok everyone deserves a 2nd chance but come on if that had of been an adult they would NOT have been given a chance…. she won't win though there's lots more talented people in the finals!! x



  85. 85

    SO SO SO SO SO SO SO TRUE !
    i live in england and watching this i feel sooooooo mad, she wasnt even really crying there were no tears on her face !
    she is just a stroppy little brat who gets everything she has ever wanted



  86. 86

    Poor kid.



  87. 87

    You called it Perez, total bullshit.



  88. 88

    Re: YOVANNI

    I can completely believe this. Her sobbing looked SO fake. Since they still decided to do this I hope from now on anyone who messes up gets a second chance IF they want to come off as fair judges.



  89. 89

    Hmm…she did a whole lot of crying but not a single tear dropped from her eye….little suspicious if you ask me.



  90. 90

    Fuck kids.



  91. 91

    sorry I've got to agree with you Perez because she didn't have a single tear coming out of her mouth and everyone's like well she's only ten, well Natalie was only ten and she managed to sing and dance somethings that most celebs can't even do!!!!! Doesn't that deserve more then a girl who's probs gonna pretend breakdown again.



  92. 92

    Fake, fake, fake! It was all fake. I was just yelling SHUT UP to the tv. You can't really think those were real tears??? Who cries that loud? Nobody. Yes, I feel sorry for her. Yes, I think she's good. But she's so up herself, which is strange at such a young age.



  93. 93

    Ok I understand that shes a little kid and all but seriously,that was the fakest cry ever. There were no tears in sight and she was perfectly fine after 2 seconds. Come on now.



  94. 94

    Your outbursts over a 10 year old just shows you what kind of a lowlife you really are. Your destroying peoples perceptions of gay people with every idiotic comment you make. Keep it up!!



  95. 95

    seriously shes just a baby….and thats harsh to say about her….i really dont think it would be a big deal to let a little girl who this prolly means everything to do it over again…..enough said leave her alone



  96. 96

    she is precious.



  97. 97

    that is not fair at all! the rules should be unbiased and the same for everyone. are you telling me that if a 40 year old man forgot the words and started crying simon would have done the same thing? fuck no! he would have said sorry and moved on. this girl knows how to whine to get what she wants. she probably did that same fake cry when she was in the grocery store begging her mom for a bag of candy. if she wins, it's not because of her talent…it's because she is incredibly good at bitching until she gets her way.



  98. 98

    i'm not buying it. faker. she prob does that at home all the time too. *barf*



  99. 99

    That's fucking bollocks!!! She was shit when she did remember the words and she just got worse. It was nice of Simon but completley unfair. I live in the town next to her and the local raido station has been going on about it aaaaall day, how embarassing for her!



  100. 100

    She's a little girl, you fucking dick!
