Ugandan dance group Triplets Ghetto Kids Saturday made history at Britain’s Got Talent 2023 after securing a Golden Buzzer in what has been described by many as “an audition to remember,” in the competition.

The ITV talent show returned for its 16th series on Saturday evening, with former Strictly Come to Dancing judge Tonioli stepping in as a new judge to join Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell.

Among the several entertainers who took part in Saturday’s audition were the famous Ugandan dance group the Triplets Ghetto Kids, comprising of children, aged between 5 and 13 who use music, dance and drama to help disadvantaged, street and orphaned children.

Dressed in matching green and patterned outfits, the group performed an energetic routine to a medley of songs which delighted the crowd and Tonioli so much that he could not wait to press the buzzer, sending golden confetti down upon them as they continued to dance.

Tonioli said the group’s performance made him “feel like exploding” and went for the golden button midway through the set, leaving the Ghetto Kids to dance amongst the golden confetti.

“I was literally exploding. I am telling you, you should be proud of yourself. I can’t wait to see you back”.

Cowell revealed that the golden buzzer, which sends the act straight through to the competition’s live semi-final, has never been pressed before during a routine but described the moment as “magical”.

He added: “I think it’s incredible. You’re so young, you’ve flown all the way, no fear, this is an audition we’re going to remember and it was brilliant. That’s what this show is all about and that’s what the golden buzzer is for.”

Another judge, Amanda Holden, dubbed the performance as “an audition to remember” and labelled the Ghetto Kids “absolute superstars.”

“We are honoured you have come on Britain’s Got Talent,” she added. Well, congratulations to the Ghetto Kids. Keep waving the flag!
