Yas Giorgia! The young Maltese girl who blew the entire Britain’s Got Talent audience away last month and got the coveted Golden Buzzer by Alesha Dixon just took the stage for the second semi final night of BGT 2019, and boy was she great.
The fourth act to take to the stage, Giorgia belted out another original on a night against seven other semi-finalists. Only two acts from tonight will make it to the Finals
The crowd loved Giorgia’s performance… but it was the judges’ feedback that must’ve gone down a treat
“I didn’t worry at all about your performance,” Amanda Holden told the young Maltese girl. “You’re so fabulous, and that was great.”
“Did you write that song yourself?” Simon Cowell smiled as he asked Giorgia. “You’re a gutsy little thing, and your confidence bearing in mind how old you are is staggering.”
“You were better than the track”
If there was one criticism that the notoriously hard-to-please judge had, in fact, was that Giorgia should’ve done away with the backing track. “You were just better than the track,” he said.
“We’re not here to judge a backing track,” fellow judge David Walliams interjected. “We’re here to judge a fantastically talented girl. That was extraordinary!”
If she does makes it through to the Finals (which we’ll know by the end of the night), the 11-year-old would join fellow Golden Buzzers Flakefleet Primary School and mind-reading dog Dave & Finn from Monday’s first semi-finals as one of the 10 finalists.
