The 27-year-old from Totley performed I've Got The Music In Me by The Kiki Dee Band for the all-star judging panel of, Boy George, Paloma Faith and Ricky Wilson.

However, none of the coaches on the BBC One talent series turned their chairs.

Sportsman Waddle, who played for clubs including Sheffield Wednesday, Newcastle United and France's Marseille, was among the supporters willing on his daughter.

Commenting on Twitter after the show aired last night, Brooke said: "I am gutted it didn't turn out the way I wanted but what an experience and the people at the voice where (sic) the BEST."

The 27-year-old received hundreds of Tweets praising her performance, and encouraging Brooke to continue with her dream of starting a professional singing career.

"You couldn't really fault the performance, maybe I was looking for a hook or a quirk," Wilson said.

"Nothing made me go 'oh, that's a bit unusual' but there's loads of power in your voice and I definitely think you should keep doing it," Faith said.

When asked for his thoughts by presenter Marvin Humes, Chris Waddle replied, "She went for it, gave it everything she had and that's all we said to her, 'go and enjoy it' and she did.
