Britain’s Got Talent aired a twist in its final round of auditions, with the judges hitting the Golden Buzzer as a group for the first time.

In tonight’s (May 27) episode, the panel and audience were wowed by the performance of Musa Motha, a dancer from South Africa who had his leg amputated following a battle with cancer.

The powerful routine, to the backdrop of 'Runnin’ (Lose It All)', saw Musa tell his emotional journey with the aid of crutches, leaving Bruno Tonioli and members of the audience in tears.

As the performance came to an end, the crowd chanted for the four judges to hit the Golden Buzzer, but they responded by informing the crowd that they had used their quota throughout the series.

As Simon, Amanda, Alesha and Bruno conferred, they eventually pressed the Golden Buzzer together, making Musa the eighth contestant to progress automatically to the live semi-finals.

As Musa fell to the floor under the golden confetti, the judges approached on stage to congratulate him, with Simon saying it was “one of the most amazing things” he had ever seen and that the reaction from the crowd was unprecedented.
