When the bespectacled 68-year-old Jenny Darren stepped on to the “Britain’s Got Talent” stage in 2018, the judges were in for a big surprise.
Rather than a ballad, Darren went back to her roots, belting out AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’, rocking out the panel, presenters and audience alike.
Fortunately, when she made this triumphant return to the world of rock, the whole world got to see in a video that has gone viral on the internet, having over 11 million views.
The matured songstress first entered the stage on “Britains Got Talent” wearing a buttoned-up cardigan and looking like the typical grandma that we all know and love. Everyone was in for a shock when she unbuttoned her cardigan and stripped down to a black leather rocker ensemble.
The entire audience, including judges Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, David Walliams, and Simon Cowell, were so silent that a pin drop would have been heard in the audience as she began her performance.
While many in the audience were probably expecting something more toned down, they watched in excitement as she began belting out AC/DC’s hit song ‘Highway to Hell’ in true rocker form.
After watching her performance, the audience gave the singer a standing ovation.
Jenny Darren had been into singing since she was just 12 years old and listened to musical greats like Jimmy Page. At one point in her life, she even sang backup vocals for AC/DC and has released 4 albums of her own featuring Nicko McBrian, Iron Maiden’s drummer as reported here by The Radio Times.
After retiring, the Birmingham resident decided it was time to get back into what had made her so happy in the past.
Watch this video to see the full incredible performance.
It may only be rock-n-roll, but Jenny, the audience of “Britain’s Got Talent,” and her new fans from around the world have proven that they definitely like it! Maybe you or your friends need to be reminded that it is always the right time to rock and this amazing performance on video is enough to prove it!
