After being strongly encouraged by the public, Alesha slammed her buzzer for the actor Nabil Abdulrashid.
The 34-year-old man from Croydon had the hearing and the judges to the point of jokes about being a Muslim, his name and being “stuck in the airport”.
Nabil, who revealed that he performs in schools, hair salons and nursing homes, was as stunned as anyone when Alesha sent him directly to BGT concerts.
The shocked father of two almost collapsed before he let out a roar of joy when Alesha joined him on stage.
Congratulating her golden buzzer number, Alesha said, “It was amazing. It was too good on so many levels. It seemed fair. “
Back at the judges’ office, she added, “I didn’t do it, you did, trust me. You are edgy, charismatic and I really loved it. It was fantastic. “
His comedian colleague David Walliams told Nabil that his writing and delivery were “perfect”, while Alesha admitted he was “a breath of fresh air”.
But not everyone watching at home was as convinced as Alesha with her golden buzzer number.
Speaking to Twitter, a viewer said, “Must be running out of action if it’s worth a golden buzzer. “
“I’m not sure about anyone else, but I’m sitting here looking at it with a straight face and I haven’t laughed once,” added another.
A third said, “I had high hopes, but it is yet another NO from me. Didn’t even make me smile. “
“Am I missing something?” Is this funny actor, ”asked a fourth.
However, there were a lot of BGT viewers at home who were spinning into hysteria.
” I loved it! Such a brilliant actor, ”a fan tweeted.
Another added: “I LOVE Abdul on Britain’s Got Talent”
“He smashed him! So funny, ”said a third.
