Adorable Group of Elementary School Students Earns Golden Buzzer on 'Britain's Got Talent'


In a high-energy, nonstop and fun-filled performance that left grown men sobbing, an elementary school choir from Britain earned a spot in the semi-final round of this season’s “Britain’s Got Talent.”

Students from Flakefleet Primary School, ranging in age from 4-11, had a big dream to perform on “Britain’s Got Talent,” and their head teacher and community members came alongside them to help the dream become a reality.

Standing on stage before the performance, head teacher and ensemble director Dave McPartlin introduced his students and explained that they had been singing together since the fall of 2018.

One of the choir members thought it would be fun to perform on “Britain’s Got Talent” because she simply loves to sing.

Everyone agreed that the experience would provide a chance to learn about resilience and confidence, success and failure — not to mention it would be a ton of fun.

The ensemble started off somewhat small in number, but soon the entire stage was filled with one eye-catching, hilarious stunt after another as they sang to Queen’s popular tune, “Don’t Stop Me Now.”

Each child wore a unique, colorful costume as they executed an incredibly creative performance that left the audience sobbing with joy.

“That was absolute chaos and absolute joy,” judge Alesha Dixon said.

Judge David Walliams was so impressed, he awarded the choir the coveted “golden buzzer” award, which advances the group to the semi-final round.

“It was just one of the most joyous things I’ve ever seen,” Walliams said of the performance.

“You’ve made all our hearts soar today and it’s what you want your childhood to have been like and it’s what you want your children’s childhood to be like which is just full of unbridled joy.”

The choir is now busily figuring out what they will do for the semi-final round, and are enjoying the experience of finding out what happens when you dare to dream.
