The Ghetto Kids, formed of 30 kids who live in an orphanage in Uganda, put up a spirited performance which left all the judges in total admiration. Italian choreographer and Television personality, Bruno Tonioli hit the Golden Buzzer to give the Ghetto Kids a standing ovation at their very first audition at the competition.
Tonioli who says their performance made him “feel like exploding” went for the golden button midway through the set, leaving the Ghetto Kids to dance amongst the golden confetti.
“I was literally exploding. You should be proud of yourselves, I can’t wait to see you back,” Tonioli said.
Tonioli who was left in awe also went to the backstage to see the kids before mentioning that they should be in Hollywood. The famous Simon Cowell was also pleased with the Ghetto Kids’ performance and the fact that the Golden Buzzer was hit almost halfway through their performance.
“That’s never actually happened. Normally the Golden Buzzer is pressed afterwards.
He gave you the Golden Buzzer and you performed in the confetti, it was wonderful,” Simon Cowell told the Ghetto Kid.
Judge Amanda Holden, dubbed the performance as “an audition to remember” and labelled the Ghetto Kids “absolute superstars.”
“We are honored you have come on Britain’s Got Talent,” she added. Well, congratulations to the Ghetto Kids. Keep waving the flag!
