It is an exciting annual event that showcases the skills of talented youngsters.
And much like the popular ITV television programme, variety took centre stage once more as a group of talented children performed in Corton's Got Talent 2019.
Pupils from the village's primary school lined up as a range of fun acts - including singers, dancers, a guitar player and storytellers - all impressed, as the annual event was hailed another resounding success.
Benjamin Britten Music Academy hosted this year's talent show on Saturday, June 15, with Corton Primary School headteacher Nicola Rowland, business manager Keri Cotton and teacher Jemma Dalley taking on the judging roles.
They were full of praise for all the children that took part, as 19 acts performed in front of hundreds of people at the high school in Blyford Road.

This year in key stage two there were joint winners, the plaudits shared between Katherine Taylor who sang 'For Good' from Wicked and a duo Millie Watson and Katie Blyth who sang 'A Million Dreams' from Greatest Showman.
Organisers were praised for helping to make this "a really successful event" once more, with Benjamin Britten Music Academy thanked for allowing use of the theatre.
Headteacher Nicola Rowland said: "It was another fantastic show that went absolutely brilliantly.
"We are extremely proud of all the children for being so brave and stepping out in front of so many people.
"We had a variety of acts this year and it is such an uplifting, inspirational event that makes everyone feel really happy.
"Thank you to the staff and Friends for their support."
