BGT fans in tears as disabled dance group gets golden buzzer after moving performance

Viewers of Britain’s Got Talent were blown away after watching a dance group made up of people with different disabilities.

Born to Perform, a band from Northampton, took to the stage on the ITV program to dance in sync to You Can’t Stop The Beat, from the hit film Hairspray.

People between the ages of 14 and 24 explained that they wanted to “break down barriers” and perform without fear of being judged.

“There are different disabilities. I have autism and Ellie has Down syndrome. We have a barrier in life, but we are starting to break down those barriers today and show the world that life is an opportunity for people. Born to Perform gives us an opportunity to be ourselves without anyone judging us,” a member of the band told hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
