Gabrielle Reilly: Connie, you have such an amazing voice, in fact your "I Will Always Love You" sounds as great as the all time legend Whitney Houston (RIP!) How old were you when you and your parents realized you were gifted with such a beautiful voice?
Connie Talbot: Thank you so much. Well, I suppose I didn't really notice... my mom was told from my school, when I was young, that I was good at singing lol.
Gabrielle Reilly: Do you ever get nervous on stage? How do you feel when you are performing?
Connie Talbot: I don't really get nervous; my dad does that job for me! When I perform I feel, well. I'm not sure really, glad that I have come this far to enjoy being on stage, and doing something I love very much. J
Gabrielle Reilly: You have grown up so much since you were on "Britain's Got Talent." How has performing changed for you since then?
What are your dreams for the future?
Connie Talbot: Things haven't changed much at home, I do get to go to some amazing events and meet some extremely nice people. I'm very lucky! My dreams are hopefully to be a singer, but whatever comes my way, I will be happy.
Gabrielle Reilly: How has the success you have already achieved impacted your day to day life?
Connie Talbot: Nothing has changed at home really on a day to day basis. My friends are just the same as they were before I was on 'BGT'. The only thing that has changed is that I get lots of lovely messages from people all over the world. That's very kind of them.
