David Walliams was left in tears in tonight’s Britain’s Got Talent after an adorable audition.
David and fellow judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden kicked off the new series tonight on ITV from 6:30PM.
One of the first acts to perform for the panel are a group of school children from Flakefleet Primary School, aged 5-11 from Lancashire.
And they left with the first golden buzzer of the series from David.
The school put on an all singing, all dancing routine to Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now.
Headteacher Dave said: “We’ve got ages ranging from 4 to 11, some are amazing singers, some are just… enthusiastic. The kids had a dream to go on Britain’s Got Talent and here we are.”
7-year-old Megan told the judges: “I wanted to come on because I love singing.”
The audition left all of the panel emotional, with David particularly moved by the uplifting performance.
Hitting the golden buzzer, he told the group: “You’re just one of the most joyous things I’ve ever seen. 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.”
Alesha Dixon said: “That was absolute chaos and absolute joy, thank you so much.”
Simon Cowell told teacher Dave: “I think you are so important to kids this age to remind them to have fun. Your joy that you radiated is infectious and this to me is what Britain’s Got Talent is all about.
With the golden buzzer, Flakefleet Primary School become the first act through to this year’s live semi-finals later in the year.
Other acts on this weekends opening round of auditions are Japanese dance act Fabulous Sisters and daring sword balancing act Vardanyan Brothers.
A number of music acts also show off their talents: There’s four piece music group Y Pedwar Covi from Wales 18-year-old classical singer Faith Tucker, 42-year-old comedy singer-songwriter Siobhan Phillips and singing Dalek Ron from Nottinghamshire.
More contestants who made it through were comedian ventriloquist Jimmy Tamley, who got both Amanda Holden and David Walliams involved with his act.
Britain’s Got Talent 2019 continues Saturday nights on ITV.
