BGT fans furious after Ant and Dec give golden buzzer to act that is already 'famous'
| Last updated
Britain's Got Talent fans have been left furious after hosts Ant and Dec gave their golden buzzer to an act they say was already 'famous'.
The popular ITV show is now in its 16th series, with many people who have appeared on the show having gone on and done great things.
However, with the amount of TV talent shows about, there are probably some who appear on BGT that might have tried their luck elsewhere - though, it is certainly not against the rules for them to apply.
But some viewers were not particularly happy when Ant and Dec pressed their golden buzzer on last night's show (6 May) for somebody that is already 'famous'.
For those not in the know, each BGT judge, as well as Ant and Dec, are allowed to hit the golden buzzer for one act each series, with that talented individual sent straight through to the live shows.
In the show's most recent episode, Ant and Dec pressed their golden buzzer for MB14 after he impressed everyone with his piece of music using just a loop pedal.
After his performance, MB14 received a standing ovation from the whole theatre and from the judges, with Ant and Dec equally impressed backstage.
Then, the much-loved TV presenters ran on stage and headed towards the judges to press their golden buzzer.
While it was a rather magical moment - much like other golden buzzer moments - viewers flocked to social media to criticise the choice after they learnt of the singer's past successes.
"He's already famous!!!!!! On YouTube with 95million views for being on The Voice France!!!!! Not worthy of Holden Buzzer." one person wrote on Twitter.
A second added: "Sooo this golden buzzer MB14 was on the voice and came second."
Meanwhile, a third wrote: "Another well known person auditioning for #bgt."
And a fourth said: "Just an ordinary lad with 95m views on YouTube #BGT."
MB14 did appear on The Voice France in 2016, where he finished runner-up and later landed a record deal with Polydor.
He did later part ways with the record company, but still has 35,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.
The singer was also previously part of the beatboxing group, Berywam.
