Honourable mentions were made about ICT’s Nikki Sandhu, who dazzled the audience with her salsa dancing, while Sam Gray, a drama teacher from Balmedie Primary School, moved the audience to tears with a performance of a song from the musical Waitress.
Andrew said: “The acts were great and the audience supportive.
“Massive thanks to Aberdeen Performing Arts for providing us a venue, STV’s Children’s Appeal for their guidance, Aberdeenshire Council for their support and to our judges from Original 106, STV and Lisa Lollipop.”
Council chief executive Jim Savege said: “Aberdeenshire’s Got Talent was a great example of our staff taking the initiative to arrange and participate in this great event.
“It was brilliant to see the staff working in a way that recognised a healthy and well performing organisation which celebrates the different skills and talents people have and has a heart.”
