Sue Son loses friend The violinist who stormed into the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent has told how she fell out with her best friend after Simon Cowell told her to go solo.

Sue Son admitted: ‘I got some great compliments from the judges. But at the end of the day I lost my best friend.’

Sue started her audition for last night’s episode of the ITV show alongside Janine Khalil as part of their classical music act Addicted.

But the pair were buzzed off stage at the Birmingham audition. Then in dramatic scenes the judges invited Sue, 23, back to try again on her own.

Going solo: Sue Son, right, auditions for the show

Her second appearance came four days later at a London audition, and Sue’s version of Vanessa Mae’s Storm had a rapturous response from the panel of Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan.

When Cowell asked if the two friends had fallen out, Sue said: ‘Of course not, we’re still the best of friends.’ But yesterday she admitted Janine wasn’t talking to her.

‘She’s taken me off her Facebook friends,’ said Sue. ‘I think Janine was upset I didn’t tell her before that I was going back for a second chance.’

Sue told her friend she could not go back to Birmingham for the audition, but then ITV’s researchers offered a chance to audition in London. ‘Instead of seeing her first, and telling her, I had to do it on the phone,’ Sue said. ‘I realised from my other friends she was really hurt.’

Sue and Janine met at the Purcell School, a boarding school specialising in music. They both went on to study for degrees at the Royal College of Music.
