Calum Scott Had an Emotional Audition on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’
Calum’s audition earned him a standing ovation from the judges and the audience. Literally, without any of the judges giving Calum a response, Simon Cowell would have won the Golden Buzzer.
David Calum This was an absolute shock as it never happened on Britain’s Got Talent. That’s how you know Calum was destined to be a big star. “Calum, you totally sucked us all in,” Alesha Dixon said after the big Golden Buzzer moment.
David Walliams said Calum took them on an “emotional journey”. But everyone wanted to know what Simon had to say. “I’ve never been on this show in all these years to hear a guy with the talent you get,” he said. “And this version is sensational and it shows me that you’re not just a singer, you’re an artist, that’s why you get it,” Simon said, pointing to Golden Buzzer. Calum sang Jermaine Stewart’s “We Don’t Have to Take Our Clothing Off” during the semi-final. Simon told him he sounded like a recording artist.
Calum advanced to the finale, where he sang Rihanna’s “Diamonds.” The nerves were definitely involved with him as he forgot some words in the song and was a little shaken. He finished the competition in sixth place. But that didn’t matter because the whole world was mesmerized by Calum’s incredible musical abilities.
