It seems like once in a while there is a ‘BGT’ act that is so special, it literally brings us to tears. That could be said for the shadow theater group Attraction who competed on season seven of ‘BGT.’ Take a look at their tear-jerking season seven audition below and make sure you have some tissues nearby.
Attraction Performed Emotional Dances Every Week On ‘BGT’
In their ‘BGT’ audition Hungarian group Attraction told the love story of a couple who met and got married. They welcome a daughter and are happier than ever. The father is then sent to war where he later dies. In the end, the mother and the daughter go to visit the father’s grave in a very heartbreaking moment. Judge Amanda Holden was actually brought to tears. She called the performance “so emotional and touching.”
“It was one of the best acts we’ve seen in terms of originality and it was very touching,” Simon Cowell said. Alesha Dixon and David Walliams also sang Attraction’s praises. They were voted through to the next round without question.
In the Semi-Finals, Attraction performed another heartbreaking routine. This one was about a man who learns his mother is sick. She later dies and the man is finally happy again when his partner reveals she is pregnant.
They made it to the finals where they paid tribute to Britain and shaped their bodies to look like some of the most iconic British figures. They ended up winning the show and were the first foreign act to do so.
Where Are They Now?
Attraction did a huge CCTV performance for Chinese New Year for over one billion people after winning the show. They have toured with their show “Let Love Win” all over the world to sold-out theaters. Attraction also competed on Germany’s Got Talent and placed seventh overall. They competed on ‘AGT: The Champions’ where they were eliminated in the preliminaries. They also made a guest appearance on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and Best of Britain’s Got Talent as well as becoming part of a TV Advertising campaign for Swinton Insurance.
