School Choir Gets Golden Buzzer On Britain's Got Talent After Emotional Performance

This evening's Britain's Got Talent saw David Walliams slam down the golden buzzer and send a school choir into the live semi-finals after a stirring - if a little ramshackle - version of Queen's 'Don't Stop Me Now'.

Yes, Britain's Got Talent is still a thing, apparently. What's more, people are actually watching it, and they've seen an act that they absolutely love.

Walliams himself was in floods of tears as the choir performed their chaotic, but somehow endearing, version of the Queen classic.

Oh, and there was another heartwarming moment as one of the kids admitted that she'd missed Ant McPartlin, who has returned to the show after a prolonged period of personal problems.

To be fair, Ant was pretty choked up and emotional himself as he held the little girl in his arms.

This Saturday evening saw the popular talent show return for a 13th edition, with Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and - of course - Simon Cowell running the rule over a whole load of potential hopefuls.

Some of them are awful, and some of them are great, as you'd expect.

What you might not expect is one of them to be sort of both, really. The kids are lovable, but it wasn't the most co-ordinated or coherent performance.

Hey, as long as they're having fun, right?

Anyway, enough people online have been gushing. It's almost as if they were as emotional and choked up as Ant, David, and the whole audience.

Don't worry, though. They didn't have to go through the tedious and dramatic process of getting four individual 'yes' votes.

Because David was so taken aback, he slammed down the golden buzzer and fast-tracked the wee kids into the live semi-finals.

After the win, their headteacher told the official Britain's Got Talent Twitter account: "Man, I can't believe we've been on Britain's Got Talent and we got the golden buzzer.

"It is just the most ridiculous feeling.

"We would have been happy with three yeses. We didn't think about anything else and we've got a standing ovation and the golden buzzer.

"The kids, I've never seen so many kids cry. You would think that it was exciting, I'm sure it will settle in at some point, but this is just the most unbelievable day ever. I'm so proud of our kids and our school and community and family."

He continued: "Thank you so much everyone, we look forward to seeing you in the semis."

See you then, mate.
