Appearance can be deceiving and if we've learned anything from talent competitions it's to not judge a book by its cover. A person's age or look doesn't matter - talent can be found anywhere in the world. Maia Gough is a 12-year-old British girl who showed that and exceeded all expectations.

In 2015, the adorable Maia auditioned in the 9th season of the Britain's Got Talent show. When she first went on stage, we could clearly see that the girl was a little nervous and shy. To the jury's surprise, the young singer from Wales brought nearly all the close family with her who supported her unconditionally. Also, Maia already impressed the jury from the first minute with her princess dress of which David Williams even jokingly said:

It's a beautiful dress. I nearly wore that dress today. Luckily, I didn't.

Impressive for a 12-year-old, isn't it? Eventually, Maia's great talent led her to the show's semi-final where she performed another song by the legendary Whitney Houston, "I Didn't Know My Own Strength."
