One lucky Manchester local has made it through to the star-studded national finals of Mecca Bingo’s Mecca Star competition to find the nation’s new singing superstar.

Mecca’s Star competition will see hopeful Savannah Brooksbank perform live at The Belfry Hotel, on Saturday 20th January, in front of a judging panel that includes some of The X Factor’s biggest stars including Ben Haenow, Misha B and 5 After Midnight, as well as soap star Claire King and Daily Star columnist Susan Hill.

Savannah (22) who studied Musical Theatre at a New York City university on Broadway, will be aiming to win the national Mecca Star final after beating the competition at auditions in London, where she performed Somewhere Over The Rainbow by Judy Garland in front of a panel of celebrity judges including reality TV star Charlotte Dawson and pop star Gareth Gates.

The celebrity panel judging the finals will rank each of the six final contestants on their singing talent, how entertaining their performances are and also their star potential.

The winning contestant will get the ultimate star treatment, winning the chance to perform alongside their X Factor idols, as well as a fantastic prize sum of £2,500 in cash.

Caroline Webb, spokesperson for Mecca Bingo said: “We’re extremely excited that Savannah has made it through to the national finals. Who knew there was so much hidden talent out there?

“Savannah has really set the bar, so expectations are high for his final performance later this month!

“The panel of celebrity judges are certainly going to have a difficult job when it comes to choosing Mecca’s singing superstar.”

Savannah said: “It was an amazing feeling getting through to the national finals of the competition but now the pressure is on!

“Singing is my passion, so to win and have the chance to sing along with some of my idols would be a dream come true.

“If I’m lucky enough to win the prize money I would treat my parents, sister and boyfriend as they have been such huge supporters of mine. I’d also put the money towards starting my career in music.”
