Sophie May Williams has gone out of The Voice UK in the semi final.
The 17-year-old performed Lorde’s hit Royals but viewers put fellow team Will contestant Jermain Jackman through.
The Outwood Grange Academy student, who was trending on Twitter during the show, said: “I have had the best experience, the best time.”
Will.i.am said he wanted to work with Sophie anyway. He said: “She has what it takes to be the artist we all want to see. Fantastic.”
