A YOUNGSTER from St Neots was given the chance to perform alongside celebrities from television and stage during an open air concert in London.
Chloe Taylor appeared alongside Connie Fisher, winner of the BBC's How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria, Duncan James, formerly of boyband Blue, and last year's X Factor runner-up, Brenda Edwards, in Kids Week in the West End.
Staged in Covent Garden in August, more than 200 children aged five to 16 years auditioned, but only four, including Chloe, were lucky enough to perform live.
Ten-year-old Chloe, who attends the Langdale Academy of Dance in Eaton Socon and lives in Monarch Road, was put in for the auditions by her dance teacher Tom Langdale.

"Chloe excelled in her audition and stunned judges and on-lookers," said Tom. "It was rewarding to see how advanced she was in comparison to other performers."
Chloe, who sang The Wizard and I from the musical Wicked for her audition and live performance, said: "I was so nervous, looking out at hundreds of people. Also Kerry Ellis who plays Elphaba in Wicked sang the same song as me, so I had to work hard to impress her."
