Britain's Got Talent: Giorgia Borg Is Youngest Ever Golden Buzzer Star

The young hopeful won over the judges with her original song about young people not being listened to.

Aspiring singer Giorgia Borg made Britain’s Got Talent history on Saturday night, as the youngest act to ever get a Golden Buzzer.

For the last five years, each member of the judging panel has been given the opportunity to push their Golden Buzzer once per series, allowing an act to sail straight through to the semi-finals of the competition.

In the most recent episode, it was Alesha Dixon’s turn to give that chance to 10-year-old Giorgia, after being impressed with the youngster’s performance of her self-written song, Ten.

“It’s about how some adults they don’t listen to their kids,” Giorgia explained of the song. “They just leave them hanging around, whatever.”

She was quick to point out that the song was not written about her own parents, who were waiting backstage, before delivering her show-stopping performance.

While all four judges were on their feet at the end of the song, it was Alesha who felt compelled to push the Golden Buzzer, securing Giorgia’s place in the next round of the competition.

“It takes a lot to really, really move me, and you floored me!” Alesha told her. “Your vocal capability, your lyrical capability, you are 10-years-old, this is unbelievable. You are a star, and you have the best personality as well.”

Giorgia’s BGT success comes a week after 13-year-old dancer Akshat Singh was also given the Golden Buzzer, this time by presenters Ant and Dec.

At this point in the competition, only Amanda Holden is still to push her Golden Buzzer, with David Walliams being won over by the Flakefleet Primary School Choir, and Simon Cowell awarding socially-conscious comedian Kojo Anim a spot in the semi-finals.

BGT continues on Saturday night on ITV.
