BGT fans in tears as disabled dance group gets golden buzzer after moving performance
23rd April 2022

Britain's Got Talent viewers were blown away after watching a dance group of people with different disabilities.

Born to Perform, a group from Northampton, took to the stage of the ITV programme to dance in sync to You Can't Stop The Beat, from the hit film Hairspray.

People aged 14 to 24 explained they wanted to "break down barriers" and perform without fear of judgement.

"There are different disabilities. I have autism and Ellie has Down's syndrome. We have a barrier in life, but we start to break those barriers today and show the whole world that life is an opportunity for people with disabilities. Born to Perform gives us an opportunity to be ourselves with no one judging us," one member of the group told hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

Dressed in fluorescent outfits as they danced on stage, panellists Simon Cowell, 62, David Walliams, 50, Amanda Holden, 51, and Alesha Dixon, 43, couldn't help but smile.

Following the performance, Amanda said: "I did not stop smiling for the whole of that performance. You were amazing," while Simon added: "I didn't like it, I loved it. I loved the fact that you were having such a great time. It was actually one of my favourite auditions."

Meanwhile Alesha shared: "The passion was just pouring out of each and everyone one of you."

But it was David's actions that drew the most attention as he said: "I absolutely loved it, guys. In fact, I loved it so much that I'm going to do this!" before pressing the golden buzzer.

The group couldn't help but cry and hug as they shared in the joy of watching golden confetti rain down on them.

Fans rushed to Twitter to share their thoughts as one person wrote: "Incredible.If ever proof was needed that having a disability doesn't always have to be an obstacle,this is it! They were AMAZING!!!" with a star emoji.
