ITV Britain’s Got Talent judges and audience in tears as former winner’s son performs powerful routine
Britain’s Got Talent judges and audience were moved to tears as a former winner’s son followed in his father’s talented footsteps. The series’ final audition on Saturday night (May 28) of the ITV show saw Attraction Juniors take to the stage to win the hearts of Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.
In 2013, shadow theater group Attraction founded by Zoltan Szucs, who use his body to create shadows to tell stories, won the popular ITV talent show. And nine years later, Zoltan’s son, Martin, and his troupe Attraction Juniors hit the stage.
Attraction Juniors touched hearts with a powerful performance that brought to light the serious issue of bullying. As the studio audience watched, many were overwhelmed with emotion and Alesha and Amanda were in tears on the jury.

Attraction rose to fame in 2012 when they performed at the Olympic oath ceremony in Hungary for the 2012 London Olympics. A year later they were crowned winners of the BGT.
Asked who was the best, Martin said Attraction Juniors was how the judges said they “loved it”. They performed their routine to Marisha Wallace’s Tomorrow, focusing on bullying and the impact of social media on children and teens.
Amanda said their article was “very relevant” and that she “liked the message”. “It was very simple,” she told them. And she added: “I think you are an absolute inspiration – well done.” Noting that the dancers were also in tears, Simon praised, “I love this audition. I can actually see how emotional a lot of you are – you felt the reaction from the audience and I love times like that.”
Fans watching at home were also sobbing. @deb89_tweeted: “Great performance by attraction juniors made me cry!” @FM_Tregz said, “The SECOND I knew it was something to do with Attraction, I knew I’d be in pieces. Amazing.”
