''I'm pretty proud of how it all went, I wouldn't change anything.''
New Zealand's Got Talent competitor Jenny Mitchell is now taking time to relax after a month and a half of travelling between Gore and Auckland for the show.
The St Peter's College student came third in last night's final.
''I'm pretty proud of how it all went, I wouldn't change anything,'' she said.
After making her way through the semi-final and singing her heart out in the final, judges described Jenny as an up-and-coming country music star.
''I didn't think I would make it to the semis, so to make it to the top three was ridiculous,'' Jenny said.
She had got the call on Tuesday at 11am that she had made the top three and was on a plane that afternoon to return to Auckland.
The experience was amazing and so life changing and the show had opened so many doors for her, she said.
She has her fingers crossed that Sony might be in contact with a record deal but for now it was back to family life for the teen and playing with her band Southern Kin, during the next couple of weeks.
Renee Maurice was crowned the winner of the talent show while dance couple Silhouette came second.
