Theo McKenzie-Hayton has won whatsontv.co.uk’s online talent competition So You Think You’ve Got Talent?
Theo, who’s only six, was chosen as the winner by our celebrity judges, Strictly Come Dancing dancers Flavia Cacace and Vincent Simone, who said he ‘put a smile on our faces’.
Theo performed a dance routine to Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal and The Jackson 5’s Don’t Blame It On The Boogie.
Flavia said: “We’ve chosen Theo as our winner. Basically we’re always looking for someone who was giving us some kind of emotion or feeling and I have to say he put a smile on our faces.”
Vincent said: “He reminds me of me. A little talent, lots of passion, perfect.”
Flavia continued: “He just looked so sweet. He’s so young obviously, with his little suit, his little hat. But he’s very talented…
“We both agreed. It was between him and a very good singer [Amy Webster] who sung a Christina Aguilera song, very very talented as well. I think most of the people on [the top 10] will be very successful. But there was something a little bit extra from Theo.”
And their advice for the budding dance star? “Just to keep going because you never know what’s around the corner,” said Vincent. “So dedication, taking lessons, especially with such a huge talent. And just keep up the passion. If you love what you do you’ll succeed.”
Theo wins £1000, a £150 littlewoods.com voucher, an Ice Watch and a performance at a top UK venue.
