Amanda Holden is breathing a sigh of relief after performing on Britain’s Got Talent for the first time and admits it was a ‘terrifying’ experience.
The BGT judge moved from behind the table to the stage to perform Not While I’m Around from Sweeney Todd, just hours after releasing her debut album Songs From My Heart.
Despite her years of experience in show business – and watching hundreds of BGT contestants for years – Amanda admits she was riddled with nerves before her big performance.
‘Hope you enjoyed it on @bgt I’ve never felt so nervous,’ Amanda told her 1.6 million Instagram followers.
‘It meant so much to me Singing LIVE in front of @antanddec & judges and crew I’ve worked with for over 15 years it was honestly terrifying -I didn’t want to mess up in front of them 😅 YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT AND BEAUTIFUL COMMENTS ARE OVERWHELMING ♥️.
‘Not While I’m Around from my new album Songs From My Heart!’ she added.
Amanda also revealed that she dedicated the performance to ‘my girls’, referring to her daughters Alexa, 14, and Hollie, eight.

Viewers were moved to tears with the performance, including former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison who commented: ‘Omg Amanda!!! I’m speechless.’
It comes after Amanda, 49, revealed that her debut album, Songs From My Heart, sold out on Amazon the day it was released.
The TV star told her Instagram followers: ‘Hello! I just wanted to share the news that Amazon have run out of stock of both my signed and unsigned CD, which is brilliant but also gutting.
‘Because of Covid and a couple of other things, we are having difficulty getting it restocked. We have it, ready to go we are waiting to sort it all out so apologies to any of you who are going to end up waiting for it.
‘There are amazing other places you can buy it. If you’re doing your food shop this weekend you can go to Tesco, ASDA and Sainsbury’s. Obviously you can download it on iTunes as well and HMV online has it to buy as well as my store officialamandaholden.com. So all is not lost.
‘I am overwhelmed and extremely grateful to all of you who have bought it so far, it is overwhelming.’
