Most sixteen-year-old boys would be embarrassed to be seen in public with their mother, let alone hold her hand or sing with her. Yet, Jamie Gilpin isn’t your average teenager. The high school student from Bridgend decided to audition with his mom, Mel, for Britain’s Got Talent.
Even though the two had only been singing duets together for a few weeks, the judges were impressed with the natural talent the two had. Something special seemed to happen when they came together to sing. They chose “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus, an emotional song if sung by the right people.
As the introduction for the song starts, the mother and son duo are standing side by side on an elevated platform, surrounded by a few musicians. Mel starts the song off as she looks lovingly at her son. She has no problem letting Jamie take the song’s lead next.
