Britain’s Got Talent is back, and Amanda Holden has already made her choice for her Golden Buzzer act for this year’s series. The lucky recipient is 11-year-old singer Olivia Lynes, who wowed the audience and judges with her performance of “Defying Gravity” from the musical Wicked. Despite her nerves, Olivia effortlessly poured her heart and soul into the song and earned a standing ovation from the audience.
Amanda surprised Olivia and her mum while they were getting tickets for Matilda The Musical at the theatre. Amanda then invited Olivia to come and audition for Britain’s Got Talent. Olivia was excited to accept the invitation, and her audition exceeded everyone’s expectations, including Amanda’s.
The judges praised Olivia’s talent, with Alesha Dixon remarking how effortlessly Olivia sang, and Bruno Tonioli calling her a “singing miracle”. Simon Cowell was particularly impressed, saying that Olivia’s performance was like a scene from a movie and that she “blew the roof off”. With such high praise, it’s no wonder that Amanda pressed her Golden Buzzer, guaranteeing Olivia a spot in the semi-finals.
Amanda expressed how proud she was of Olivia’s performance and how she wasn’t expecting to use her Golden Buzzer on her. But Amanda always trusts her heart, and it clearly told her that Olivia deserved that moment. Now, Olivia is on her way to the semi-finals, and we can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.
