Britain's Got Talent has been on television since 2007, delivering some powerful moments in the process!! The new season kicks off in April 2019, with BGT scheduled to run until 2022 at the very least.

To wet our appetites, here's a list of 10 moments which got everyone a little emotional!


13-year-old choirboy Andrew Johnston (2008) had been bullied for his musical choices. He chose to sing Pie Jesu, with the judges giving him a standing ovation. Amanda Holden was in tears and so was the audience! Johnston finished third overall.

He's not had an easy time adjusting to life after BGT - working full time as a roofer for a while. He's recently been accepted for a full scholarship at Royal Academy of Music in London.


We could choose Attraction (2013) just for choosing Emile Sande as their backing music! Their very emotional shadow-puppet-dancing showed a tragic love story - before performing another in the Semi's. The group went onto be the only foreign act to win the competition! Bravo.

They have since performed lucrative gigs at countries such as China and Denmark.


The original rap from Bars & Melody (2014), was penned after Leondre suffered bullying. The youngster told The Sun he used to get jumped on, tripped, punched and kicked. The duo were given a golden buzzer by Simon Cowell - finishing third overall.

Known by their fans as BAM - the pair have released a debut album, toured various countries and supported Diversity. Most recently they released their new song Love To See Me Fail.


10 year old Calum Courtney (2018) melted everyone's heart with his rendition of Who's Loving You. Audience members were crying - before Calum himself even broke down in tears!! Completing the tear-jerker.. was his family running out to give him a hug.

No updates since the show - but a recent Tweet suggested that there's exciting things on the horizon for Courtney!


Probably one of the most emotional performances ever came from Calum Scott (2015). The singer had just seen his sister be rejected by the BGT judges before his performance. He went on to get Simon Cowell's golden buzzer thanks to a super performance of Dancing On My Own. He came 6th in the finals.

Dancing On My Own was later released and has sold over 600,000 UK copies. Last year he toured America and most recently released single No Matter What.


  Teenage dancers Grace & Ali (2017) performed a moving routine to Gravity. The emotion and love was on show for all. Before the performance, they said that they fell in love whilst dancing together at Performance Art College. How cute! The duo got to the Semi-Finals but were eliminated on public vote results.

Grace is currently training at Laine Theatre Arts - whilst Ali seems to be keeping a very quiet profile since leaving the show (although he did tweet this).


Very few TV auditions get me close to tears - but Harry Gardner (2017) certainly did that. His self-written song is about his grandmother diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Sadly she died days before the audition aired on ITV.

Gardner finished sixth form last year, and in February suggested he was ready to push forward.


Magicians on BGT have been a growing trend - and this will most probably continue to increase thanks to Marc Spellman (2018). His superb emotional routine included a moving story about his two-year-old daughter. Ant & Dec gave him their Golden Buzzer - and in the Semi-Finals he was eliminated on public vote results.

Marc has been appearing on various outlets showing off his magic including Heat. He recently has been filming Unbelievable for Fuji TV.


An emotional Rachael Wooding (2016) delivered a rendition of With You from the musical Ghost. She already had various experience on stage and it showed, a faultless performance in every sense. The voice, movements and expressions were all perfectly timed. Wooding began crying as the judges applauded.

Despite acclaim from the judges, the public voted her into 4th place. This ultimately eliminated her from the Semi-Finals. The singer is appearing in various productions including Standing at the Sky's Edge.


Possibly the most emotional audition ever. It begun in the build up to their performance, the members video introduction explained how they were made up of people who's loved ones had gone missing. The Missing People Choir (2017) wanted to spread awareness and they certainly did!

The choir picked a poignant song - I Miss You. I think the world got chills during their audition - and I'm sure most even shed a tear (just like Ant).

They made it into the Final, eventually finishing eighth. Other performances included Wings and With You - both passionate and powerful songs which tugged at the heartstrings.

The choir are still active, recently performing at People's Postcode Lottery 2019 Charity Gaga. You can donate to their charity on their official website.
