Ben Trigger

This Australian contestant in AGT Season 14 spoke about his experience being “a gay, fat dancer,” and the challenges he faced to pursue his dream. He was especially excited to perform for Julianne Hough. Not only did Ben have some seriously awesome moves, but he also showed off a great sense of humor. He even pressed the Golden Buzzer for himself!

Pretty Big Movement

In Season 10 of AGT, this dance troupe of plus-size women rocked the stage. “It doesn’t matter what size you are,” they said before their performance. “You can do whatever you want to do.” They danced to James Brown’s “Get Up Offa That Thing,” and had the crowd dancing along. Judge Mel B called it “bloody brilliant.”

Oscar Hernandez

In Season 12 of AGT, Oscar shared how his grandmother inspired him to perform. His father pressured him into playing sports, but he really wanted to be a dancer. He danced to Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” in his audition, and had the crowd going wild. Heidi Klum said he had “it all going on,” and Simon Cowell called it “amazing.”

Emma Haslam

Emma auditioned for Series 8 of BGT with an impressive pole dancing routine to Katy Perry’s “Firework.” She said she hoped people would see that she’s “good at what I do.” The judges certainly seemed to think so, as Amanda Holden called her confidence “a massive example to girls all over this country.” Alesha Dixon said, “I don’t care what size you are, you’re brilliant at what you do.”

Roz the Diva

This pole dancer from Season 10 of AGT didn’t make it past the audition round, but her time on the show made an impact offscreen. Her audition was only shown briefly, so audiences didn’t get to see the judges’ critiques. However, Roz says Howard Stern fat-shamed her. She spoke out afterward, saying, “America judges people in the fitness industry based on how they look.”
