BRITAIN’s Got Talent fans raged on Twitter tonight after they discovered Ant & Dec’s Golden Buzzer act is already a telly star.
Simon Cowell was left speechless after watching Akshat Singh from Mumbai, India, pump up the crowd with his energetic dance routine and feel good catch-phrase.
He told the judges “I have two mottos in life – to make everyone happy and to show everyone that nothing is impossible” and received a standing ovation from tearful Amanda Holden and Aleesha Dixon.
And when Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly honoured him with their golden buzzer, he was visibly emotional and burst into tears.
But at just 13 years of age, Britain’s Got Talent isn’t actually Akshat’s first TV appearance – and viewers were left scratching their heads when they recognised him.
He’s actually a well-known Indian dancer who came into the spotlight by showing his funky moves in the Bengali dance reality show: Dance Bangla Dance.
He then took part in India’s reality show India’s Got Talent and became an overnight sensation.
He made a special appearance on India’s Strictly Come Dancing in 2014 and also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in America.
Akshat was then invited on to try out for Little Big Shots in Australia.
Fans were not impressed with the “unfair” advantage as one said: “You’d be gutted if you had queued for hours an hours to get nowhere near a judge because youre not already semi famous. Farcical show”
Another wrote: “The kids bloody already famous! Recognise him as soon as I see him wasn’t even that good to be given the golden buzzer”
Another said: “what a waste of Ant and Decs Golden Buzzer. A movie star etc saw him do same routine on Ellen last year. As usual the seem to think the great viewing public are dim and can’t spot a plant act.”
