Warminster's got baton twirling talent(November 01, 2009)
A YOUNG local would be star of the future took the plunge and performed with hundreds of others from across the region in front of scouts for one to the biggest Saturday night shows on television.
Baton Twirler Tiana Morton is already a regular sight at local events like the Warminster Carnival and old people's home fetes.
The 14-year-old Kingdown student appeared in Cardiff this week and used her few minutes to impress the onlookers with her performance to 'Now your gone' by well-known pop group Base Hunter.
"It was really, really good." said Tiana. "Everyone at Britain's Got Talent was really nice and kind. I think it went really well."
Tiana said she was encouraged by her mum Penny and inspired by past winners Diversity which as an all boys dance group took the show by storm.
Fellow baton twirler Debra Macdonald who went along to support her from the wings agreed she had done very well.
"I think they really liked her as afterwards all the floor people came up to her and it seemed very positive," added Debra.
Tiana was preceded by over 12,000 hopefuls trying to go forward representing her troupe the Warminster based Pink Starlettes (backed this year by a town council grant).
"I do not know when I will hear," said Tiana. "It was a really good thing to do."
