Beau Dermott, a 13-year-old singer from Widnes, stunned the Britain’s Got Talent judges and audience in a manner that reminded many of Susan Boyle’s famous debut.
Beau nervously stepped up to perform Defying Gravity from the musical Wicked and there was nothing in her shy manner that prepared for what followed.
“When I’m on stage, it feels like anything is possible and that I can be myself,” she stated and added she’d like to be a performer in the West End.
Watch Beau Dermott’s performance:
Judge Amanda Holden became the first judge to hit the Golden Buzzer, ensuring Beau advanced to the live semi-finals.
Meanwhile, Britain’s Got Talent contestant Alexandr Magala left all four judges on the panel speechless after his sword-swallowing act.
Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda visibly winced and covered their eyes as they watched Alexandr pass a sword through his mouth.
The 26-year-old from Moldova performed what has been described as ‘one of the most dangerous acts ever’ on the hit ITV show.

The Moldovan secured Yes buzzers from all the judges, who could barely look at most of his act. Don’t Try This At Home, indeed!

The show may be called Britain’s Got Talent, but that has not stopped the flow of performers from outside the UK. Like Alexandr, Vitaly Voronko from Belarus also opted to try out for the British version of the Got Talent franchise.
The 25-year-old musician calls himself The Music Hero – and proved to be one, earning three Yesses from the judges and advancing to the semi-finals.
Elsewhere, the Togni Brothers, Dario and Michael who are aged 19 and 20, are foot jugglers from Birmingham.
Raised in Italy in the circus, their impressive act sees one sibling flip the other in the air using his feet.
“Oh my God!” a stunned Ant exclaimed during their performance.
In his critique, TV mogul Simon said he had ‘never seen anything like it’. Meanwhile, Amanda called their feat ‘extraordinary’ and they stepped into the semis.
Britain’s Got Talent is broadcast on ITV at 7pm each Saturday.
