Lettice Rowbotham: The Violin Virtuoso on Britain’s Got Talent 2014

In 2014, Lettice Rowbotham, then a 24-year-old from Surrey, captivated the judges and audience of Britain’s Got Talent with her extraordinary violin skills. Known as the competition’s “poshest ever contestant,” Lettice shared her heartfelt journey of pursuing her passion for the violin, which began with a childhood disappointment of receiving a plastic toy instead of a real instrument.

Despite her eccentric appearance and casual admission of being “too hungover to be nervous,” Lettice’s performance was anything but lackluster. She showcased her talent by playing a medley of “Good Feeling” by Flo Rida, “Demons” by Imagine Dragons, and “Counting Stars” by One Republic. Her unique approach blended classical training from the Royal College of Music with the lively spirit of contemporary pop songs.

Lettice’s performance was a hit, earning her cheers and a standing ovation from the audience, as well as admiration from the judges, with Amanda Holden visibly astonished by her talent.
