Jack Higgins on Britain's Got Talent beats the bullies with emotional audition

Dancer Jack Higgins gave a heartbreaking emotional audition on Britain's Got Talent 2016 tonight.

The 14 year old dancer from Liverpool currently attends a performing arts college and spends all his spare time dancing in between lessons.

"My ultimate dream is to win Britain's Got Talent," Jack declared.

He explained: "I don't have any other hobbies, it's just dance, dance, dance.

"When I started ballet, people were calling me names - 'It's all for girls, you should be doing football'."

Jack added before his audition: "I was getting really upset, but dancing just makes me feel happy."

After a touching performance to A Great Big World's classic Say Something (I'm Giving Up On You), Jack opened up to the judges about his passion for dance: "I was getting bullied, people saying I was gay and dancing like a girl and ballet was for girls."

Simon Cowell replied: "You know the one things bullies don't like? They don't like it when you do well."

“Well done Jack,” said Alesha Dixon, "Well done my darling".

“It was a real Billy Elliot moment for me,” added David Walliams. "It was so moving, every movement had emotion and moving, it was really powerful."

Amanda Holden concluded: "You are a born dancer."

With four big yeses, Jack sailed through to the next round, one step closer to the live semi-finals later this year.
