In the video provided, teen singer Morgan Smith wowed the judges during the Week 6 auditions of Season 10 of “Britain’s Got Talent,” which aired in May 2016. The 15-year-old songstress stumbled initially with an inappropriate song choice, Jennifer Hudson’s “Spotlight.” However, her rendition of “Rather Go Blind” by Etta James won the judges and audience over in a big way.

Following her first appearance, however, the young artist was maligned by spectators who accused her of lying about her age. Smith, who hails from Watford,Hertfordshire, England, was eliminated during the semi-finals of the competition. Yet, it should be noted that the young songstress was not the only contestant who elicited backlash from the audience. In fact, Season 10 of “Britain’s Got Talent” 2016 was plagued by controversy.

Other contestants who raised eyebrows during the tenth season of the show included 12-year-old singer Beau Dermott, who was accused of cheating, Stephen Mulhern, who engaged in a controversial dog act, and David Walliams, who was involved in a contentious marriage discussion with judge Simon Cowell.
