According to ET Canada, Davids stunned with her performance of One Moment In Time as she “effortlessly flew through the song”.

As the Cape Town singer concluded to a standing ovation, judge Simon Cowell praised the performance as “the moment we’ve been waiting for.”

David Walliams was impressed, noting, “You created such a massive moment tonight for all of us” while Alesha Dixon added, “What a way to close an amazing run of auditions with a class act. I want to see the name Belinda Davids in lights.”

It is said that Davids’ audition wrapped up the ‘BGT’ audition tour.

“This was a fantastic end to a fantastic tour, I absolutely adore you,” Cowell said further.

The show typically goes into the live rounds but they have yet to announce how those shows will work with various lockdown restrictions in place.

A household name

In South Africa, Davids has become somewhat of a household name. In fact, last year, Davids wanted to “heat up” the Christmas season with the release of her very first holiday album: Belinda Davids – ‘I Love Christmas‘. According to IOL, recording the 12-track, soulful Christmas album became a special and personal project for Davids when she realised, in recent years, the significance and privilege of being able to spend the festive season with her two children and extended family. 

“My touring schedule is so hectic, sometimes I barely have time to breathe, so when I can be at home over Christmas and truly be present with my children it is the greatest gift, and super important to me – it’s the creation of memories,” she said at the time.


The South African previously reported on how Davids wowed the crowd at The Apollo Christmas Show when she sang one of Whitney Houston’s classic hit-songs ‘I will always love you’. Earlier in 2017 she was invited to perform on Fox TV’s iconic Showtime At The Apollo, and knocked the crowd’s socks off before she received a standing ovation. The show also featured other artists, including Snoop Dogg, DMX and Fifth Harmony, but judging by the crowds’ reaction, it looks like Belinda was a real fan-favourite over the evening.
