Morgan Smith is a 15 year old with the big soulful voice of a star. However, her recent audition for "Britain's Got Talent" didn't start out so smoothly: Simon stops her a few moments into her shaky rendition of Jennifer Hudson's "Spotlight," asking her to perform another song from her repertoire instead. Smith then launches into Etta James' "I'd Rather Go Blind," eventually earning heaps of praise from the judges for her "brilliant" voice.
