Ava Rose Houben-Carter sang two Disney classics: ‘Home’ from the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack and The Little Mermaid’s ‘Part of your World’.
Runners-up were Catani’s 11-year-old Rachael Board who impressed the judges with her beautiful piano talent, playing the ‘Pink Panther’ theme song and ‘Return’, as well as Nar Nar Goon’s 12-year-old Baylee Brown who wowed the audience with the moving Christina Perri ballad ‘Jar of Hearts’.
Girl group The Minty Llamas and singer Olivia Squires’ singing were recognised as Highly Commended.
Nineteen acts comprising children aged five to 15 competing in singing, dancing or entertainment categories accompanied by ‘Mr Music’ youth worker John Veluso with compere councillor Graeme Moore.
Bunyip and District Community House co-ordinator Davina Veenstra said the hall was filled with supportive families and friends.
“It was well attended and everyone was entertained,” she said.
“It was a great day. Bunyip Kids X Factor gives local kids a chance to show their talents in a fun, social and non-competitive environment.”
