Terminally ill Bethany Fenton to sing on Britain’s Got Talent 2010 final

Brave five year old Bethany Fenton is to sing for Simon Cowell on next Saturday’s Britain’s Got Talent final.

The little girl, who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour eighteen months ago, revealed that she wanted to sing for Cowell and a friend of the family contacted the show to see if he could make her dream come true.

Bethany’s dad Sean told The Sun how she turned to him one day and said:

“Daddy, I’d love to meet Simon Cowell.”

Sean said:

“It broke my heart when she said that.

“We appealed to the programme and told them our girl was the bravest child you could ever meet.

“They came back with the response that they would be delighted to welcome her to the show.

“We are now doing everything we can to arrange for Bethany to sing Simon her favourite song, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

“She loves all the kids on the programme and just wishes she was one of them.”

A friend of the family then wrote to the BGT team saying:

“Bethany constantly tells me that she’d love to see Britain’s Got Talent and would like to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to Simon.

“I appreciate you have many such requests and that they are all heartbreaking. In Bethany’s case her life expectancy could be just months or a year or two. There is no cure.

“Bethany has no idea that I have applied and her parents understand you have the most difficult job.”

A producer from the show replied:

“Bethany sounds like an amazing little girl.

“We would love to invite Bethany and her family to the studio in Wembley. All being well, she will get the opportunity to sing to him.”

It is not yet clear if Bethany will be appearing on the show or not, but one things for sure, she will be treated like royalty while she’s there. Simon Cowell is well known for his generousity.
