Macie Nyah knew she would be nervous performing in front of 3,000 people, but as soon as she got on stage her nerves disappeared.

Performing at the Indigo at the 02 in the finals of the Alpha Unsigned competition - with the winner granted a £100,000 record deal - the Great Yarmouth singer lived a lifelong dream on Wednesday night.

While Macie Nyah - real name Macie Lewis - didn't bag the contract, she gained confidence in her ability and sees the competition as a stepping stone on her path to a career in the music industry.

Macie said: "The competition was incredible.

"I performed the best I could and every single act had something different to offer."

The competition was won by London-based singer Lois Morgan Gay.

"I cried when Lois won - I was so happy for her," Macie said.
