Battling nerves, awkward body language, and an admitted lack of sleep, new mother Rachael Wooding stunned judges by performing "With You" from "Ghost The Musical" on "Britain's Got Talent." Wooding, a former musical performer who took a break in her career to raise her 11-month-old daughter, quickly regained her confidence.

"You're a naturally gregarious, charming person, and you made me feel very vulnerable and you moved me," judge Amanda Holden said after the performance. "It was just a wonderful performance - gorgeous. Well done." Holden's fellow judges added their praise for Wooding, moving her to the next round in a unanimous vote.

However, even though the judges found Wooding's performance stunning, audience reaction appeared mixed, with several social media reactions commenting that Wooding's former professional experience gave her an unfair advantage. Daily Mail posted several reactions online, including one viewer who expressed via Twitter, "'Rachel was brilliant on #BGT But i don't want her to win it as she's already famous in her own right on the west end stage she don't need it."

According to Hello, Wooding's professional history includes performances in the musicals, "We Will Rock You" and "Jersey Boys." She also appeared briefly on the British soap opera, "Coronation Street."

However, Wooding may feel this competition marks a new phase in her career. "I want to perform as me, not as an actress, but as a person," Wooding explained during the pre-performance interview package. "I want them to like me."
