Breeze has Talent 2011
And the winners are...1st Francesca Pidgeon
2nd Eden Ottman
3rd The Rift
Over 40 acts auditioned for Breeze has Talent 2011 including bands, singers, Bollywood dancers, Irish dancers, street dancers, a magician, piano players, guitarists – a wonderful line up of talent from all across Leeds from the very youngest (eight years old) to the oldest (18).
All our expert judges were amazed at the high standards of the performers and they had a really tough job to select the acts to go forward to take part in the heats at Breeze on Tour, and it was even harder for our judges to select only 10 acts from the heats when all the young people who have taken part throughout the heats have shown such passion and commitment.
Every young person who has been involved should be very proud of their achievement - and it was great to see acts supporting and encouraging each other during the performances - well done and a big thank you to all our acts for making this the best Breeze has Talent ever!

Niamh Dunnigan - singer
