Giorgia Borg just became the youngest solo act to receive the golden buzzer on “Britain’s Got Talent.”
Borg, 10, from Malta, took to the stage before judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon to sing her original song “Ten,” a song about how “some parents don’t listen to you.”
After her stunning performance, the “Boy Does Nothing” hit singer Dixon used her one Golden Buzzer to send Borg straight to the live semi-finals. “You’re not even real, congratulations,” Dixon told her. “It takes a lot to really really move me, and you flawed me, like absolutely flawed me. Your vocal capability, your lyrical capability, you are 10-years-old! This is unbelievable, you are a star. You have the best personality as well, I love everything about you. Congratulations.”
“I felt like I was in a dream. I was very excited and couldn’t believe it was actually happening,” Borg told Smooth Radio. “It’s always been a dream of mine to be on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. I just can’t believe it has come true! It’s my favourite show, and I have been watching it since I can remember.”
“I also wanted to meet the judges, especially Alesha because she is my inspiration,” she added.
This isn’t Borg’s first rodeo. She placed first at the Italian Una Stella Sta Nascendo in 2015 for Best Junior Talent, first at the 2017 Sanremo Junior and third at the Malta Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
“I auditioned at the heats stage, but I didn’t get through. There was a much bigger crowd at BGT audition and it was much more exciting,” Borg recalled. “It’s always been my dream to be on BGT, it was such a huge deal to get an audition, let alone get a golden buzzer.”
