If you’ve kept up with our site in the past week then it’s no secret that we’re fans of the 12 year old powerhouse Beau Dermott. If you saw her audition for Britians Got Talent then you know that she absolutely nailed the song defying gravity.
However now the 12 year old is under fire and is being accused of cheating. According to an inside sorce Beau has had academy theater training for years and isn’t as nervous as she claims to be. The source went on to say that she’s been training for years and is comfortable on stage.
Beau’s father Ian denied those claims defending his daughter by saying:
People are saying she’s been in theatre school for five years – she hasn’t. It might be once a month, it might be once in three months. She’s never done any productions for them.
‘You’ve got to use local talent shows to build their confidence up. It would be crazy to put your child on to a stage like BGT without knowing they can do it. You’d be hanging them out to dry.’
Honestly it upsets us that we even have to be reporting on news like this. I mean since when has having training equal to cheating? One of our favorite vocalist Haley Williams of Paramore has been in a band since she was 15 years old and she has openly admitted to having had vocal training done by world renowned coach Bret Manning. Does that make her any less good at what she does? No of course not because let’s face it you can have all the traning in the world but TRUE talent takes a lot more than that, and the same can be said for Beau Dermott.
Reporters shouldn’t be tearing down a 12 year old girl just because she has an untouchable talent. Further more they shouldn’t try and discredit all she’s accomplished at such a young age. It’s sickening really.
Whether you’re an athlete, or a singer, you need practice and like they say practice makes perfect. Even if these allegations it true or not, it really shouldn’t matter. It shouldn’t take away from the incredible talent Beau is, and that’s why we here at TrevorDrcker.com are team Beau and will stand behind her every step of the way.
