It all became a bit too much for Hollie in yesterday's semi-final when nerves got the better of her. However, after performing well the second time around, the judges saved her for the final. Will she be able to perform this evening?
That's all folks, the comments are now closed!
Thanks for your many messages, we hope you enjoyed this series of Britain's Got Talent.
from an interview with hollie's mum.
Nina said she was overjoyed at Hollies performance on the final, She said: She performed brilliantly and we are all so proud. Nina said that Hollie, has now been assigned a manager through the show. Steven Howard, from TCB, which represents artists including Katherine Jenkins, will now be representing her.
Nina said Hollie wanted to make an album and work in theatre.
Hollie will be a part of the Britains Got Talent tour and that will keep her busy

Simons face is a picture watching her,you can almost hear his brain thinking ''wow this is something special'', like us all seeing a little star being born,Hollie like the phoenix rising from the ashes of the semi final meltdown will rise to international glory, you just wait and see.i bet Simon is already planning a spectacular CD for Hollie to feature her unique range and vocals,i for one am sure simon will nurture her and bring out her brilliance as he always does
Approved by The X Factor Team
I am certain that Simon Cowell knows a star when he sees one,she is better than Charlotte Church was at this age and Hollie has a unique range to her voice,Charlotte Church was the nations Voice of an Angel, Hollie Steel is our own English Nightingale..her voice is truly magical to listen to and can only get better ,I would love to hear her sing ''I dreamed a dream'' the song that susan boyle sang,we all know it would be so much better than susans version,maybe that will be on the cd
Ant and Dec,Simon and Amanda were brilliant with her too.Hollie showed the british bulldog spirit by overcoming her nerves ,she was terrified, in the final she proved it was the right decision ,she was only singer who had guts to sing 3 different songs too,when her cd comes out will be under a lot calmer & stress free environment,and her world class exrtaodinary unique high vocal range will shine .shame on all the heartless losers who leave nasty comments...they are nothing more than bullies

You performed great Hollie!!!
The show in whole was great but for me Hollie Steel was the greatest and I am looking forward to buying her first cd so I can listen to her beautiful voice again.

I'd love to see Hollie perform with Susan Boyle on stage maybe a musical like Mary Poppins in NYC!!!!! that would be a sold out performance!
Hollie there are some people in the world that delight in taking others down. This is because they have no talent of thier own and they aer jealous it is as simple as that. This lsson you have learned way too young but out that to one side.
Know this Hollie Steel you can sing, you sing beautifully and you will be a great sucess. Your voice has not yet even reached it's peak and you are streets ahead of all the competition. I wish you well in life and I will buy your cd's

Hollie will definitely have a great recording career and perhaps an acting career. She's cute, she can sing (a young Charlotte Church). she's got stage presence. She will be awesome in the West End and on Broadway.

There were no tears, I looked and looked at that act she put on not a single tear just a tantum to get what she wanted, little Natalie Okri showed tears when she was told she wouldn't be going to the final but she didn't stamp her feet and carry on just tears of disappointment , I actually thought Hollie was good until me and so many others saw the act that was no doubt already staged
Cannot believe the number of people that were so jealous of Hollie that they needed to make adverse comments on here. Anyone who has dealings with kids would know that the tears were not faked. She just wanted to show what she could do & I would have thought little of the producers if they had not given her the chance.

It was a complete privilege to listen to Hollie 3 times for free. I am afraid from now on I'll have to pay to listen to her :) When is she releasing her first CD? Good luck, kid.
Her voice is so beautiful & pure. Her performance has proven she deserved a second chance. Please record a CD soon, I love to hear her singing all day long.
Stellar performance...she definitely will be a great professional singer someday. Incredible talent, poise and courage for any age. I am glad she got the chance to perform again. I enjoyed watching all the talented performers in this contest...it is a shame to let the competition for first prize ruin the pleasure of just watching these people. I wish them all good things for the future.
Nothing against Hollie - the issue was one of fairness. I'm sure Jamie Pugh, Natalie Okrie, and others would have LOVED a second chance. Let's follow the rules ... How many times have the judges said "you have 2 minutes." It isn't that Hollie isn't talented, but that Greg is more talented and was treated abominably.
Believe me her range is beyond incredible she nailed those high notes at the end ...check out the german nightingale Erna Sack from the war days with a super high range...we have just found our own beautiful english nightingale in Holly Steel,
her first solo cd should be called ''THE ENGLISH NIGHTINGALE'' her vocal range is world class ,i am sure Andrew Lloyd Weber will recognise what a cracking little star Holly is after listening to her singing such a wonderful performance of his song
she recovered from a life threating illness when she was 4,she gets bullied at school,and there are groups of morons on facebook who are bullying her ,but we will see who has the last laugh,just like rock singer Shirley Manson was bullied at school ..Holly will emerge to become a superstar too, a voice like holly's that makes you feel the emotion is'world class,she will make it in whatever genere of music she chooses, shirley was a classical musician before she turned to rock in her teens
Oh i really can't wait untill you release your 1st album, i for 1 will be the first to buy it, and i can't wait to see you on tour, don't give up, keep it up.
All said, I do think it was best for Hollie to have had the chance to give a smooth performance and not have the semi-final episode as her lasting memory of BGT. I am glad for her. I do not think anyone believes an adult performer would have been given the chance for a second try and the producers and judges do need to examine carefully the issue of children performers on BGT.

more chance. That has been criticised the fairness for the other competitors. Right, the point is everyone has different character itself. If the people who is potential why not give them an extra chance!? Am afraid to remind that she is just ten years old.
By the way, I do believe that there isn't any rules for dealing this issue. The judges will not do that otherwise. So the result was acceptable at all. Hollie has proved that she has got talent anyway.
hk talent31/05/2009 13:36:19
I am bloody proud of her for she could do it and overcame ultimately in the show.
Indeed, that was the first time for the judges to deal with this issue. But anyway, Hollie who didn't let the judges disappointed last night rather the judges and most of audiences were even supportive to her which is great!
There was quite critical for the Judges to make this tough decision in this certain moment to give Hollie one more chance. That has been criticised the fairness for the other competitors. Ri

Hollie performed in final competition of BGT which was powerful and beautiful. She coped with it brilliantly at last. As I had watched 2009 BGT from the beginning until now, also enjoy watching "Britain's got nutters". Hollie actually performed 3 times in BGT show and gone through to the semi-final. Honestly, I just want to say that Hollie really has got talent in singing, her ballet is good too. I am happy for her cause her talent had outshined by her good voice and chosen a tough song. I am bl
she should have won as far as i am concerned....that performance had so much emotion,range and power for a 10 year old, and she sounded great ,as for Susan Boyle wanting to be like Elaine Page,believe me i reckon Holly Steel will be much more likely to be a superstar in the future ,bring on the cd.lets hope the school bullies leave her alone now,if she turned her talents from classical style to rock music she could even be the next Shirley Manson...she even looks a bit like her
hollie is still a kid, no doubt very talented, to those still fuming about what happened at the semis, get a life and pick someone your own age, she would have made it through without a second try but she was brave enough to do it, to all you crybabies thinking greg should have been in the finals instead of hollie, that's your opinion keep it to yourselves, hollie is the only judge's choice who received all 3 votes, not pity vote, it's all based on talent. congratulations to diversity by the way
