Dancing Children Are So Captivating “BGT” Judge Hits Golden Buzzer Mid-Performance.

Just because you’re the new guy doesn’t mean you’ve got to play it safe!

Famed choreographer and dancer Bruno Tonioli recently replaced David Walliams on the popular talent show, “Britain’s Got Talent.” On his first-ever episode, Bruno got so excited about one of the acts that he couldn’t contain his enthusiasm, hitting the Golden Buzzer in the middle of the performance!

Which act inspired such excitement from the new judge? A children’s dance troupe from Uganda called Ghetto Kids, that’s who!

The Ghetto Kids dance troupe lifts children out of poverty and gives them the opportunity to go to school, receive free food and clothing, and learn to dance from professional choreographers. Five of the 30 troupe members appeared on “BGT,” and their high-energy, joyful performance was a show-stopper! When they brought out their youngest dancer, an adorable 5-year-old with sass to spare, the energy level rose even higher, and Bruno couldn’t stop himself.

“That’s never actually happened,” Simon said of the mid-performance Golden Buzzer. “Normally the Golden Buzzer is pressed afterwards. He gave you the Golden Buzzer and you performed in the confetti, it was wonderful.”

Watch the video below to see the group that had Bruno “literally exploding,” and don’t forget to share.
