Simon Cowell breaks Britain’s Got Talent rule after act leaves audience in tears

BGT: Contestant sets judge Simon Cowell on fire

Britain’s Got Talent returned with another round of auditions and the final act of the night brought everyone to tears.

Dance group Unity took to the stage and introduced themselves as friends from all over the UK and Ireland.

One member said: “We are all friends from college so we decided to put this group together to perform a piece called ‘I Will’.

“Which is about being told that you can’t or you are not enough.”

It was after the inspirational dance that Simon Cowell “broke the rules” by giving them a golden buzzer pass, despite having already pressed his buzzer during the series.

As the dance came to an end, the audience chanted for the panel to give them a golden buzzer, however none of the judges had a pass left to use.

The dancers were in floods of tears as Simon said: “Look, we don’t have any golden buzzers left, but sometimes I feel you should just break the rules.”

There were screams as Simon stood up and pressed the golden buzzer for a second time, with Dec Donnelly saying: “We don’t know what’s going on anymore!”

Simon added: “Honestly, you deserved that golden buzzer, it was absolutely beautiful.”

Alesha Dixon added: “I was very moved by that, that is how you use a stage and I’m very proud of all of you.”

The performers featured personal stories from some of the members as they addressed the importance of inclusivity.

Emma, who had Down’s Syndrome, started off the dance with viewers then hearing from Declan who discussed “pushing gender boundaries”.

Alesha Dixon looked emotional as Declan spoke about being “labelled” and discriminated against.

The camera cut to the audience, with onlookers wiping tears away from their faces as the act continued.

Steph and Libby then took to spotlight to share their experience of coming out as a lesbian couple.

They said: “We constantly have eyes on us for something as simple as holding hands walking down the street.”

Bruno Tonioli held back tears as Junior explained how he was bullied for his love of dance and he was beaten up and called names.
