Britain’s Got Talent returned for its 13th series on Saturday night, which saw tears, scares, and possibly the most dangerous act in any Got Talent show ever. There was one act, however, that did enough to earn the first Golden Buzzer of the series.
Flakefleet Primary School were one of the first acts up, seeing children aged 5-11 as they performed a song and dance routine to Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now. The performance earned a standing ovation and left everyone in the audience and judging panel emotional.
No one was more emotional than David, who praised the group.
“You’re just one of the most joyous things I’ve ever seen,” he said. “You’ve just made all our hearts soar today. It’s what you want your childhood to be like, and what you want your children’s childhood to be like which is full of unbridled joy.”
He then hit the Golden Buzzer, sending the group straight into the live semi-finals later on this year. The choir becomes the first of five golden buzzer acts that will advance from the auditions into the live shows.
The show closed the night with the Vardanyan Brothers from Russia. The pair performed a balancing act that saw them in the air with only the swords in their mouths keeping them balanced.
“I almost said you can’t do this because this is the most dangerous act on any ‘Got Talent’ show,” judge Simon Cowell said. “It is the most dangerous thing I’ve ever seen.”
Britain’s Got Talent airs Saturday’s at 8:00 pm on ITV.
