Music videos featuring Wapping students went live on Youtube today after a school group were crowned winners of a national competition.
The gang of performers called Street Kids at Wapping High School performed with X Factor stars Rylan Clark and Only the Young.
Their superstar debut came after winning TalkTalk TV’s Spotlight campaign which gave them the chance to perform in their own professionally produced music video.
They received glamorous red carpet treatment and spent the day rehearsing with the X Factor stars on December 17.
Only the Young ran a master class to finesse the Street Kids dance moves and performed to screaming students in the assembly hall.
Rylan Clark, who finished fifth place on the X Factor in 2012, said: “The Spotlight competition is all about giving something back and encouraging the stars of the future.
“The Street Kids have been amazing – the stars of tomorrow.”

Only the Young, who finished seventh place on the X Factor in 2014, added: “We love being involved with projects like this, it’s a great experience for us as much as it is for the kids.”
Street Kids were inspired by singer/songwriter, Paloma Faith’s Mix Off video, so decided to perform to her single Ready for the Good Life.
The TalkTalk Spotlight competition was set up to give families, schools, friends and performance groups the chance to star in their own professionally produced music video and appear on the TV player.
