Dublin teen tipped to claim 'classical X-Factor' crown

An Irish teenager is tipped to win a classical music talent show in the UK.

Sophie Cashell from Dublin is one of eight people in the final of the BBC programme, which is being dubbed the 'Classical X-Factor'.

The piano player left Ireland at the age of 13 to go to a top music school in England, and she now attends the Royal Academy of Music in London.

The winner of the show will get a prestigious record deal with a classical music label.
