Amputee Dancer Earns History-Making Group Golden Buzzer On BGT

One contestant, missing a limb, turned in an inspiring and historic performance on Britain’s Got Talent.

People are capable of accomplishing amazing feats. Regardless of their present circumstances, individuals can rise above their situation and do what others say cannot be done. In the process of achieving what was thought impossible, those special individuals will also inspire others. That was certainly the case with 27-year-old Musa Motha.

Musa, originally from South Africa, had cancer as a child. His cancer, Musa, tells the judges, led to the amputation of his left leg. Before cancer took his leg, Musa enjoyed playing “football,” or soccer. After the procedure, Musa got involved with dance, according to the video posted on YouTube.

“After my amputation, I fell in love with music,” Musa told the judges. “My friend, they were dancing at that time. I asked them to teach me how to dance.”

Minutes later, Musa finishes his back-and-forth with the judges, and the music starts. What follows is pure magic, which leaves everyone blown away and most people in tears.

The young man gives a mesmerizing and inspired interpretative dance number. Despite missing a leg, Musa twists, turns and flips about, owning the stage. He pulls off dance moves that would put many, many people with both legs to shame.

The judges are left utterly speechless by Musa’s astounding performance. Bruno has tears in his eyes. Simon Cowell’s mouth hangs open in disbelief at what he just witnessed. The studio audience also loudly let the judges know their feelings about Musa’s performance.

The studio audience gives the young man a standing ovation, but they take it one step further. For several minutes, everyone in the room chants, “Golden Buzzer.” The judges several times inform the crowd that it’s not possible. They have already given all their Golden Buzzers out.

Two judges give their thoughts on Musa’s performance, but the crowd refuses to give in. They demand a Golden Buzzer for the young man. Eventually, the judges relent, and all four slam the button together, sending confetti raining down on the stage. 

It was the first group Golden Buzzer ever given in the history of Britain’s Got Talent, according to the video’s description

Musa is overwhelmed. He drops to the floor, overcome with the emotion of the moment.

What a stunningly beautiful and inspiring moment of a young man who refused to give up when it would have been so much easier.

James 1:12 “There is a blessing on the man who undergoes testing; because, if he has God’s approval, he will be given the crown of life, which the Lord has said he will give to those who have love for him.”
