Britain’s Got Talent 2023 has officially kicked off, and one of Africa’s most famous dance groups, The Ghetto Kids, from Uganda, made their mark on the show by winning the coveted Golden Buzzer.
The Ghetto Kids is a group of 30 children who live in an orphanage in Uganda and put on a remarkable performance that left all the judges in awe.
During their stage performance, Italian choreographer Bruno Tonioli was so impressed that he couldn’t contain his excitement and pushed the golden buzzer, sending the troupe straight through to the live shows.
Following the performance, Tonioli said their performance made him “feel like exploding,” and he couldn’t wait to see them back. The Triplets Ghetto Kids did not stop dancing after winning the Golden Buzzer, but instead continued with their performance, dancing on golden confetti.
Meanwhile, head judge Simon Cowell selected his Golden Buzzer auditionee, choirboy Malakai Bayoh, 13, with the singer moving the panel to tears. The new series of Britain’s Got Talent also features former Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli making his debut on the judging panel.
However, one noticeable absence from the panel is David Walliams, who left the show after a decade on the panel. Walliams quit the show after he was forced to apologize for describing an elderly contestant as a “c***” and making vile sexual remarks about a woman taking part.
The Ghetto Kids’ incredible performance on Britain’s Got Talent 2023 has earned them a spot in the live shows, thanks to Bruno Tonioli’s Golden Buzzer.
As the competition continues, fans eagerly await to see who will come out on top and win the coveted £250,000 prize and take to the stage in front of King Charles and Queen Camilla at the Royal Variety Performance later this year.
