Plus-Size Pole Dancer Teaches Important Lesson With THIS Inspiring ‘BGT’ Routine
Emma Haslam, a wife and mother of one came to ‘BGT’ to show everyone that you can have tremendous flexibility no matter what size you are. She promoted body positivity and showed everyone that she is sexy and a true talent. Take a look at her season eight audition below that now has nearly 70 million views on YouTube.
Pole Dancer Emma Haslam Taught An Important Lesson On ‘BGT’
The judges could not wait to see what Emma had in store for them. Emma performed a pole dancing routine to Katy Perry’s “Firework” back in 2014. She wore a black bodysuit with fishnet cutouts on the sides. She started off the routine doing a variety of tricks before she went fully upside down on the pole doing a split. The audience went wild and the judge’s faces were full of complete and utter shock. “For you to get up there and have such good body confidence is a massive example to girls all over this country,” Amanda Holden said.
“I don’t care what size you are, you’re brilliant at what you do,” Alesha Dixon said. Though we didn’t get to hear Simon Cowell’s critique, the smile plastered on his face was a pretty good indicator of what he thought of the act. All four judges gave Emma “yes’s” and everyone was excited to see if she would be chosen for the Semi-Finals. Unfortunately, she was not chosen to perform in the Semi-Finals. Her message did touch the lives of so many people and definitely did make a huge impact on the show.
