"Year 8 Assumption College student Emma Brosnan entered in the juvenile female section.

"She went through to the finals and came third in her first year of competition.

"Keely Hilton and Emma Siebenhausen competed in the junior female section.

"Katie Dennis, Emma Siebenhausen and Keely then performed as a junior group called Belle for the first time."

Mrs Hilton said she also took to the stage.

"I performed with my daughter, Keely, in the senior duo section and we won," she said.

"We also qualified for the overall champion section but it was won by Justin Standley, who was recently voted off X Factor."
