Britain’s Got Talent fans insist oldest ever contestant Nora Barton, 96, who has Alzheimer’s, needs to win – The Sun

BRITAIN’S Got Talent has seen many worthy acts grace its stage but this series one woman has stood out amongst others – Nora Barton, the oldest ever contestant on the show.

And now viewers of the show want the glorious pensioner to win after her utterly charming performance.

Fans were bowled over tonight by 96-year-old Nora Barton, Britain's Got Talent's oldest ever contestant, who fulfilled her dream of performing at the London Palladium.

Nora, who has Alzheimer's, left the judges, audience and viewers blown away by her performance, and fans at home think she should win the show.

The 96-year-old already had viewers hooked when she quipped to host Ant McPartlin that she was doing “nowt” when he asked her what she was up to on stage.

Helped on stage by Ant, Nora’s daughter Pam Dimbleby, 65, who accompanied her, revealed it was a dream for her mother to play there.

The great-grandmother was dressed to impress in a red top, floral skirt and a flower in her hair, before she belted out The Loveliest Night Of The Year from 1951 film The Great Caruso, with daughter Pam playing along on piano.

The nonagenarian was left thrilled as she was given a standing ovation, with Nora saying “thank you very much!”

Fans at home were as equally enthused, taking to Twitter to write: “Nora…. Hands down winner for tonight’s show' declared one viewer.”

While a second added: “OMG! I think she's the winner! Such a lovely lady with a beautiful voice. We have Colin, now we need Nora. The Royal family would adore her. Smiling face with open mouthRed heart #BGT”

And a third concluded: “I've fallen for Nora on #BritainsGotTalent surely she is a winner! Her Royal Highness our Queen of England would love her”

All the judges fell in love with Nora tonight as David Walliams told her: “You are a very special lady because you are full of life, full of laughter, full of joy and you've just entertained the nation at 96.”

Before Alesha Dixon declared: “Once a show woman, always a show woman! I really enjoyed that whole performance, it was just completely charming! Congratulations Nora!”
