What a star: Amani made it through to the third round of the Teen Star competition

Talented teenager Amani Hussain is set to perform at London’s O2 Arena this summer, after sailing through the semi-finals of singing competition Teen Star.

The youngster – who lives with her family in Chivery near Tring – performed an acoustic version of Imagine Dragons’ tune Radioactive, but she injected some originality with her own rap.

Amani, 14, said: “The standard was so high and I honestly thought that was it, I was going home. When they said my name I was just so shocked. I was over the moon.

“If I won Teen Star that would be surreal. I can’t comprehend it.”

The budding pop star will be performing in the final on July 7.
