The “incredible” and “memorable” performance of Uganda’s Triplet Ghetto Kids has qualified the group for the semis of Britain’s Got Talent.
The group received a standing ovation, resounding applause and most importantly, the golden buzzer on Saturday.
Impressed judge Bruno Tonioli couldn’t wait for their performance to end and pressed the golden buzzer in the middle of their choreography- the first time since the inception of the reality show.
The buzzer qualifies the group for the semi-final stage of the competition after their first performance.

Giving his remarks after the performance, Judge Tonioli disclose he was “literally exploding” as he watched the kids. “You should be Proud of yourselves. I can’t wait to see you back.”
Judge Amanda Holden commented, “You’ve lit up the stage and the energy in the room and joy is incredible.”
“Your talent is unbelievable and it seems to me that you raised the bar on Britain’s Got Talent,” Judge Alesha Dixon noted.
On his part, Judge Simon Cowell called the performance “magical” and memorable.
“This is an audition we are going to remember and it was brilliant. That’s what the show is about and that’s what the golden buzzer is for.”
The competition has a grand prize of £250,000 cash.
The Ghetto Kids is a non-Governmental organisation in Uganda headed by Daouda Kavuma.
Mr Daouda Kavuma told Britain’s Got Talent the organisation has 30 kids; some orphans and others picked from the streets.
“We are using music, dance and drama to make lives better,” he said.
