THE first-ever Wigan Youth Zone’s Got Talent contest took place on Saturday and was a huge success.
Twenty acts reached the finals of the Junior and Senior competitions after successfully taking part in auditions and provided a wonderful show for packed-out audiences at both events.
Judges at the Junior show - Battle of the Bands winner Zoe Unsworth, Nick Harrison from Symphony Music and Wigan Observer Editor Janet Wilson - after much deliberating, eventually selected Tayla Cottom as the winner.
Later the senior judges, Observer journalist Greg Farrimond, local artist A Me B, Wigan Warriors star Sam Powell and Dave Bamber from Symphony Music, voted for singer Amber Pennington.
