Abingdon's Got Talent Auditions 2009

Adam Ball from Heart FM was the Compere this year. That's him on the left encouraging contestants to go just that one step further to impress the judges.

However, the first real Su Bo Mo was...

this lad singing 'You Raise me up' in the under 11 category.

More eclectic was a performance on an early electronic musical instrument called a Theremin. It's eery waverings had the effect of scaring all the pigeons from the Market Place surrounds.

There were more established acts like Big John who has been on X-Factor in front of an even more distinguished panel of judges - if that is possible.

People came from far and wide to see the show. Carl, pictured here, comes from Florida (corrected after comment), but he didn't just come to see Abingdon's Got Talent. He loves Abingdon and has come to stay for the summer months and hopefully see a few MGs.

These two young lad are from the European school, near Abingdon, and they did Hip-Hop and break dancing

or something like that...

It prooved to be another entertaining AGT. The crowds just grew and grew.

Through to the final are...

18 & over Adam Matthews, Anthony Smith, Alan Haines & Angela Painting

12-17Leah Himpson, Flash Jumpers & Nicholas Schneider

11 & underJoanna Petrova, Lev Pavlov, Miles Burton, Neda May Monadjem & Shaya Moodey
