Susan Boyle took the world by storm on “Britain’s Got Talent” in 2009 when she walked out on stage in what was seemingly a joke audition, until she opened her mouth and a gorgeous vocal soared out. Simon Cowell’s eyeballs about fell out of his head.
Now it’s happened again.
Meet Paddy & Nico, a ballroom dancing duo who are nearly four decades apart in age. According to The Guardian, Sarah “Paddy” Jones, who turns 80 in July, was named to the Guinness Book of World Records in 2010 as the world’s oldest acrobatic salsa dancer.
After her jaw-dropping audition for “BGT,” Cowell had this to say, “Wow. I apologize for what I did because I did obviously buzz a little early. This was before all the crazy things happened … it all went ballistic. It was extraordinary.”
They were passed through with four yes votes, of course.
