11-year-old Guitarist Harry Churchill on Britain’s Got Talent Leaves Brian May in Awe with Queen Cover

By Jackson Maxwell, Guitar World / Yahoo

Would you want the world to see a video of you at 11 playing electric guitar?

Even if you were to answer that question in the affirmative, you probably didn’t sound as good at that age as 11-year-old Britain’s Got Talent contestant Harry Churchill did during his recent audition for the popular show.

Wielding an Epiphone Les Paul, Churchill shook off some (understandable) early nerves and took on a medley of Brian May’s guitar parts from the Queen catalog, including the Bohemian Rhapsody and We Will Rock You solos.

Even more impressive, though, Churchill put on a heck of a show while doing so, wowing the studio crowd at one climactic point with some behind-the-head shredding, executed while standing directly in front of the show’s judges no less.

Even the notoriously difficult-to-impress Simon Cowell had nothing but kind words for the youngster. “That was a great, great, great audition,” he told Churchill, before voting with the show’s other three judges to move the young guitarist on to the next round of the competition.

The Britain’s Got Talent judges weren’t the only significant figures who had praise for Churchill, though. More still came recently from Brian May himself, who shared a clip of the young guitarist’s performance to his followers on social media.

“Harry rocks!” the Queen guitar legend wrote of Churchill on Instagram. “Had to post this – congratulations Harry Churchill on smashing it tonight on Britain’s Got Talent! Go kill’ em!”
