Budding stars took to the stage for Calderdale’s very own version of the X Factor.
Bertie’s at Elland was the venue for Calderdale’s Got Talent.
The competition is run by staff from Co-operative Food Stores and is raising funds for Carers Trust - the Co-op’s charity of the year.
Halifax-born Josh Orme, 18, who now lives at Clayton, said his mum had encouraged him to take up singing lessons and it was his first audition.
He sang a dance song although he also sings jazz and swing. “I thought I would give it a go,” said Josh.
Olivia Smith, 14, of Elland, sang “Skinny Love” and the Brooksbank High School pupil was well received and got a “yes” vote from all four judges.
“I have auditioned for school competitions before and I really enjoyed it. It was a nice experience,” said Olivia.
Katie Porter and Natalie Johnston both work at the Co-op store at Stainland Road, Greetland, and they organised the event.
Katie said 10 finalists were chosen from the 18 entrants and they go through final night on September 6 at The Venue, Barkisland. The winner receives £250 and a trophy.
Judges were from the Co-op and Oscars Theatre Academy.
