BGT preview: Amanda sobs over this sign language choir and you will be too

Amanda Holden is left sobbing by a choir who coming singing and sign language in tonight’s Britain’s Got Talent. And you will be too.

Started by Jade and her little brother Christian, who has cerebral palsy and was told he would never be able to communicate, Sign With Us perform The Greatest Showman’s This Is Me and there’s not a dry eye in the house. 

‘I didn’t want to accept Christian would never be able to communicate; I just knew there was a voice inside there waiting to come out,’ said Jade, who against the odds taught her little brother sign language. 

Boasting 37 kids and 28 adults ranging from four to 58-years-old, Sign With Us are easily one of the most moving acts Britain’s Got Talent has ever seen.

And, there’s a pretty emotional moment for Simon Cowell, 60, who is reunited with 12-year-old Ella Chadwick after meeting at the 2018 Pride of Britain Awards. 

All in all, it’s a sob fest. 

‘I have to confess I have a friend of mine in this choir,’ grins Simon. ‘Ella. I heard Ella sing and said, “One day I have a feeling you’re going to be auditioning in one of our shows, and guess what? You’re here. 

‘You’re saying this is me, but this is us. This is what Britain’s Got Talent should be all about. This is an audition I will never forget.’

Through tears, Amanda, 49, added: ‘That song is such an anthem for people who maybe don’t feel part of the world – or part of anything – and I just found it really, really moving. It was brilliant.’

Also tonight, Simon is left shaken to his core by a magic trick involving his son Eric, six. And we finally get to see what made David Walliams want to throw up his lasagne. 

Britain’s Got Talent returns when we need it most as the auditions were filmed weeks before the coronavirus lockdown. 

The live finals have been pushed back to a later date.

Britain’s Got Talent returns tonight at 8pm on ITV.
