Watch: Cora Harkin, Derry's dazzling Ireland's Got Talent star

Nine-year-old Cora Harkin wowed the Ireland's Got Talent judges with her huge voice and now she has performed especially for the Belfast Telegraph.

The young girl stood on stage in front of Louis Walsh, Denise Van Outen, Michelle Visage and Jason Byrne to perform a rousing rendition of Don't Rain on my Parade from the movie Funny Girl.

The panel were immediately in awe of little Cora's big voice with all four judges on their feet at the end of the performance.

"This is the second coming of Miss Barbara Streisand, that was fantastic," Michelle told her, while Louis added: "I think we could be looking back at this clip in about twenty years and we'll be saying 'remember it all started on that show'."

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph from her home in Strathfoyle, Co Londonderry, Cora said of her Ireland's Got Talent experience: "It was really heartwarming and I really liked it - looking at everyone while I was just standing on the big massive stage, I was thinking, 'ah, this is actually happening'."

Watch Cora perform Opportunity by Sia from the 2014 film Annie in the video above.
