Future still bright for Dean Brady who missed out on crown
DEAN Brady has plenty of talent and a bright future ahead of him, despite not winning Australia's Got Talent last night.
The 10-year-old, who is originally from Cairns but is living with extended family in Woorabinda, was the fourth finalist eliminated in the grand final decider of the TV talent show.
Judge Dawn French said she had "no worries" about the young singer's future.
"You've got more confident with every single performance," French said.
"I'm not worried about you. You're going to go miles and miles and miles."
The studio audience agreed, giving Brady got a standing ovation as a send-off.
"I'd like to thank everyone who supported me and helped me, and thank you to all the friends I've made on Australia's Got Talent," Brady said.
Brady's mum Trevelyn, who dropped out of the competition so she wouldn't have to compete against her son, joined him on stage for the grand final show's opening number Can You Feel It.
"Salty Rain" dancer Tommy Franklin, a regular at the Heritage Hotel, was eliminated soon after.
Musical family trio Uncle Jed was crowned the 2013 series winner, the first since Channel 9 took over the rights of the show from Channel 7, taking home the $250,000 grand prize.
