The Greek-Cypriot father son duo appeared on BGT: The Champions – and they still have the moves 10 years later
Simon Cowell gave Stavros Flatley his golden buzzer on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions last night.
The dancing duo – made up of father Demi Demetriou and son Lagi – first appeared on the show back in 2009, and quickly became firm favourite with fans. Many of whom took to social media last night to say how much they "loved the pair".
Simon was clearly impressed with the pair's Greek dancing, as he pressed the golden buzzer, handing the duo a pass sending them straight to the semi-finals.
Each of the judges, as well as Ant and Dec, have one golden buzzer to use, which gives them the power during the auditions to give acts a direct route through to the semi-finals.
Speaking after their energetic performance, father Demi told the fans how much their support means to them:
"I can't tell you how much you going mad for us makes us feel but I want to say, this show is amazing. We've been all over the world and we've done things and seen places we'd never see, and it's because of you guys."
They also took to Twitter to thank their fans:
Thanks to everyone for tonight all your great comments and love that you send us see you at the final xxx— Stavros Flatley (@StavrosFlatley) September 21, 2019
Judge David Walliams told them: "This for me is what the show is all about. Ordinary people getting up and having a go."
Meanwhile, Alesha Dixon branded them the most iconic act in Talent history, with Simon agreeing, saying: "I will never forget that moment when you guys came out and I was thinking, 'What the bloody hell is this?'
"Like tonight, the same thing happened. The crowd went crazy. I’ve wanted to say this to you for years. I’ve really wanted to thank both of you for everything you’ve done, and there’s one way I can do this…"
Getting up from his seat, he hit the golden buzzer sending the crowds wild.
After appearing on Britain's Got Talent 10 years ago, they have since gone on to become household names, with many fans following their journey since their win, and praising their performance last night. We can't wait to watch their next performance!
It was brilliant seeing you both again on BGT tonight and winning the GOLDEN buzzer. You always have been our favourite BGT act and reminded us of the fantastic afternoon when we meet you guys in Glasgow in 2010. Good luck in the final. @StavrosFlatley pic.twitter.com/SiPnZmTbP8— Anna (@Craigh_Na_Dun) September 21, 2019
