The auditions for Britain’s Got Talent rolled on Saturday night as acts from around the country came to perform for the judges and earn a spot in the next round.
However, one act got judge Alesha Dixon’s attention so much, the judges couldn’t even finish giving their feedback before she hit her golden buzzer.
The final act of the night was 10-year-old singer Giorgia Borg from Malta. She performed an original song called ’10’ for the judges. Ordinarily, performing your own music is a risk but it paid off for the pint-sized singer.
Giorgia belted out the song and had everyone on their feet by mid-song. By the end of her performance, the judges were on their feet, giving her a standing ovation.
“I knew when I woke up this morning that this was going to be a special day,” judge Simon Cowell said.
“I can’t believe you’re ten years old,” judge David Walliams said. “I was barely out of nappies when I was ten. It was just everything, you’re -”
But Dixon had heard enough, cutting off Walliams, saying: “Oh forgot this.” And she hit the golden buzzer, sending confetti onto the stage and sending Giorgia into the live shows.
“It takes a lot to move me,” Dixon told her. “You’re ten years old and it’s unbelievable. You’re a star. Congratulations.”
Giorgia now joins David Walliams’ Golden Buzzer act Flakefleet Primary School, Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer act Kojo Anim, and Ant and Dec’s Golden Buzzer act Akshat Singh with a place in the live shows.
Britain’s Got Talent airs Saturday’s at 8 pm on ITV.
