LIFE is truly a cabaret for 22-year-old Elizabeth Evans.

The former Bremer State High School student is part of a 17th century cabaret-style act called Valère, which will appear in the semi-final round of Australia's Got Talent tomorrow night.

"Valère was a cabaret character created by my best friend Brendan Hay who also studied above me at the Australian Institute of Music," she said.

Adopting the alter ego of Valère, Mr Hay performs modern contemporary songs in a cabaret style accompanied by his five female back up dancers - the Válerettes.

As one of the Válerettes, Miss Evans has been performing with the show since 2010.

"We've appeared at the 2011 Sydney Fringe Festival and the 2012 Slide Cabaret Festival," she said.

"But performing on this national reality television talent show is definitely our biggest undertaking to date."

For its audition piece, Valère wowed judges and audience members with a gaudy swing arrangement of Kylie Minogue's Locomotion.

The act, which featured a fusion of singing, dancing, feathers and flair, received a standing ovation from all four judges.

Miss Evans, who now lives in Sydney, said viewers could expect a bigger and better performance for this next round of competition.

"We want to show people that cabaret is not about stripping, it's about comedy, theatrics, song and dance."

Miss Evans said the group would continue to promote themselves to the public and the performing industry, regardless of whether they win or lose the competition.

Valère's next Australia's Got Talent performance will air on Channel Nine tomorrow night at 6.30pm.
