On Saturday’s episode of Britain’s Got Talent, Amanda Holden gave the Golden Buzzer to an 11-year-old singer, causing Bruno Tonioli to cry.
Olivia sang Defying Gravity from the musical Wicked! while Melissa, Olivia’s mother, and Sarah, Olivia’s grandmother, watched from the sidelines. Paul, the young singer’s father, viewed from the audience.
Amanda touched the Golden Buzzer after stunning the judges and garnering a standing ovation from the audience. Dec said, “That’s too cute,” as Olivia’s grandmother and mother sprinted off stage.
As Amanda joined the family on stage, Bruno wiped tears from his eyes.
She said to her young singer: “You were my golden moment, you were the golden moment. You were absolutely amazing, you nailed that.”
The entire time you were up there, Alesha Dixon said, “I was thinking, ‘Look how effortlessly you sing.'” You simply let it flow and spill out of you. While praising the performer, Simon Cowell said: “Perfect Golden Buzzer, you were amazing.”
Amanda surprised Olivia as she traveled to London’s Cambridge Theatre to see Matilda The Musical, according to information obtained exclusively by Mirror.
Amanda was waiting at the theatre to ask Olivia to apply for Britain’s Got Talent after Melissa had sent the show her daughter’s audition recordings.
Olivia said: “She appeared from nowhere. I was so surprised! I felt so emotional. It was amazing.
“She was just like Miss Honey [the kind teacher who rescues young Matilda in the musical]. She was so beautiful.
“I can’t remember everything she said because I was so excited. I ran up to her and hugged her really tightly. When she asked if I would audition on BGT I said of course I would!”
The Bath, Somerset-born vocalist said that she didn’t have any anxiety or fear before to the audition.
“It was just natural,” she said. “I am very lucky. My family love me and support me.”
The 11-year-old clarified that it was challenging for her to hide her try-out from her peers. “It was so hard, but I really wanted to keep it a surprise,” she admitted. It will be better in that case. Like when Amanda pleasantly surprised me.
