We’re only on the first episode of this series of Britain’s Got Talent, but there’s already been one Golden Buzzer.
Yep, David Walliams was so moved by one school choir’s performance that he couldn’t help but put his full weight behind them. Each judge only gets to press their Golden Buzzer once per series, so this is pretty impressive.
Flakefleet Primary took to the stage as a five-piece with their headteacher to perform an energetic version of Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop Me Now
However, they were gradually joined by more and more members in a variety of awesome homemade costumes.
David was so taken by the performance that he was in tears by the end, as were many of the kids on stage.
“That was so moving,” he declared to his fellow judges, before Alesha told the kids that their performance was “absolute chaos and absolute joy”.
I think you are so important to kids this age, you remind them how to have fun,” Simon said. “Your joy that you radiated is infectious. This to me is what Britain’s Got Talent’s all about.”
David then declared: “You’re just to me one of the most joyous things I’ve ever seen. You just made all our hearts soar today. It’s what you want your childhood to have been like and what you want your childrens’ childhoods to be like, which is full of unbridled joy.”
He proceeded to press his Golden Buzzer for the group, securing them a place in the live semi-finals.
Britain’s Got Talent airs on ITV.
