In Week 1 of Britain’s Got Talent 2016, 12-year-old Beau Dermott took the stage. Her parents said Beau was always quiet at home, and getting on stage in front of thousands of people would be extremely nerve racking. Judges also looked a little skeptical of the shy girl before them, but as soon as she began to sing the entire room filled with screams and applause. As the first notes began, any question of shyness went away, as she belted out every note with the confidence of a professional on Broadway.
Judge Amanda Holden excitement started before the music began when she heard Beau’s song choice, ‘Defying Gravity’ from the world famous musical Wicked. Throughout the performance Holden was captivated and just seconds after Dermott’s final note, Amanda awarded her the coveted Golden Buzzer!
The crowd might have egged her on by chanting “Press the buzzer!,” it’s no question Holden’s hand was hovering over the button the entire performance.
The other judges couldn’t agree more with her decision to send Beau straight to the competition rounds. Simon reacted by saying he felt mugged. That she had come on stage acting nervous and then had completely thrown him for a loop with her strong stage presence and amazing voice. David commented that everyone else might as well go home because she was the strongest act they had seen.
We know amazing things are in store for this little girl!
Watch and share Beau’s out-of-this word performance.
