It’s Billy Elliot, the true story. Teenage breakdancer George Sampson overcame a tough upbringing to win Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday night.
His freestyle performance to a remixed Singin’ In The Rain was a sensation in the heats and – after he dropped a planned routine to the Bee Gees’ Staying Alive – it proved a winner of the entire contest.
George, 14, from Warrington, beat comic dance duo Signature and teenage singer Andrew Johnston to take the title and first prize of 100,000 pounds and a spot on the Royal Variety Performance.
It’s been revealed that George’s parents are separated and he lives with his mother and apart from his sisters, who live with their dad. It’s the classic tale of talent overcoming adversity… and don’t we love it!
