A pint-sized Frank Sinatra impersonator will wow the judges on tonight's (21.05.11) 'Britain's Got Talent'.

Adorable Robbie Firmin, seven, will impress Amanda Holden, Michael McIntyre and guest judge Louis Walsh - who is filling in for David Hasselhoff - when he takes to the stage dressed in a mini pinstripe suit and matching hat to belt out classic Sinatra track 'My Way'.

Despite his young age, the judging panel admitted little Robbie was already "a star".

Michael said: "Robbie I thought that was just brilliant, it had everything, you toyed with the audience, they were up, they were down, they were swaying. Robbie you're a star."

Louis - who is also a judge on 'The X Factor' - added: "Robbie, that was fantastic. I've never heard anybody so young sing that song."

The seven-year-old hopeful also showed his cheeky side by telling the Irish judge his auntie was looking for a new boyfriend, and he was top of her list.

Robbie said to Louis: "And I think she would want you to be it."

Meanwhile, illusionist double act Karen and David will also impress the judges with their "annoyingly good" Houdini-style stricks.

Amanda says: "That was annoyingly good. I am never keen on magic because it's always so small time, people come on with cards and bits of cotton and no one can see anything.

"This is a massive show and if it goes onto the Royal Variety then that is a huge show to perform on, and there was no orange make-up, there was no Lycra, I hate to say it, but it was really good."
