A SCARY performance earned Widnes teenager Harrison Vaughan a place in the live finals of BBC One's The Greatest Dancer.

The 16-year-old, who attended Holy Family Catholic Primary School Trains full-time at Jelli Studios performing arts college in Liverpool, impressed judges Cheryl, Todrick Hall, Oti And Matthew Morrison during the show on Saturday night with a performance dressed as the lead character from horror classic IT.

Harrison, who lives in Upton Grange, is in one of the final 12 dance acts who will compete for The Greatest Dancer crown.

The competition stage of the show starts this Saturday (February 1).

The live shows will see each of the dancers take on a challenge with their Dance Captain to create an unforgettable performance.

For the first time the power will be in the hands of viewers at home as they vote to decide who stays in the competition each week and who will become The Greatest Dancer of 2020.

Harrison's aunt Stacia Lucas told Runcorn & Widnes World today: "Harrison performed a scary Clown contemporary piece in his first audition and was blown away by the response he got.

"The whole audience where stood on there feet as well as the dance captains Cheryl, Todrick Hall, Oti And Matthew Morrison.

"Harrison is super excited to be performing Live on Saturday Night and we need the whole of Widnes to get behind him to VOTE so that he gets through to the following week! Harrison has been working so hard in the lead up to the first Live show.

"This means the world to Harrison, he's been performing since he was four and just loves to Dance.

"We are hoping Widnes will get behind Harrison and Vote for him."

Harrison's mum Cheryl Lucas said: "I am just so proud of Harrison.

"He has worked his whole life for this, he has been dancing and singing from such a young age and I just hope he goes and has the best experience in the live shows."
