Saulo Sarmiento Auditions For ‘BGT’
Saulo is originally from the Canary Islands. When he walked on stage for his audition, wearing a blazer with no shirt underneath, a few people in the audience whistled at him. The judges were also impressed.
David Walliams stood up and applauded, telling him, “It’s a yes from me!” He and his fellow judges Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden got flirty with Saulo. When Saulo told Alesha she was 28, she replied, “That’s good.” Amanda then asked him what his star sign was, and Alesha asked if he was married. “Wonderful news!” David responded when he said no.
Simon Cowell seemed annoyed by the other judges’ behavior. But he was certainly impressed by Saulo’s performance. He swung on a pole hanging from the ceiling, showing off some amazing moves.
What Did The Judges Think Of Saulo’s Performance?
The judges and audience gave Saulo a standing ovation. “It was so beautiful and so graceful, it was like Tarzan with a pole,” Amanda said. Simon, meanwhile, gave him a score of 10.
“You’re so hot!” Alesha declared, to which David sarcastically replied, “Didn’t notice.” Saulo then flattered Alesha by telling her, “As hot as you are.” David requested to be included in the compliment, prompting Saulo to tell him, “And you too.”
Saulo received four “yes” votes to move on to the next round. He’s also appeared on France’s Got Talent, where he made it all the way to the final. Saulo is also a Cirque du Soleil performer.
