Ant and Dec in shock as BGT judge uses golden buzzer for 'funniest ever act'

Ant & Dec in shock as Amanda holden pressed golden buzzer over Nabe on BGT

A Japanese act who does impressions using his hair gained a golden buzzer from judge Amanda Holden in tonight's, May 12, episode of Britain's Got Talent. Nabe, who said he wants to “make people smile all over the world”, imitated a number of characters including Maleficent, Snoopy, Shaun The Sheep, and Simon Cowell’s chest hair.

Amanda was "howling" at the act and said: "Normally when I press my golden buzzer I’m then in floods of tears and I do a big speech. This is so different it’s just made me howl. Absolutely laugh my head off. I've never seen anything like it.”

The 38-year-old shocked the judges as he brushed his hair into different styles, sometimes adding components like shaving cream and by the end had the four celebs and audience in stitches and on their feet. But no one expected what was going to happen next as radio host Amanda slammed down the golden buzzer.

You could see fellow judges, Bruno Tonioli and Alesha Dixon were shocked and hosts Ant & Dec were left open-mouthed at the act. Actually, we think Nabe himself couldn't believe it as the judge got on the stage to put the golden ticker tape under his flappy hair.

Simon added to Amanda's comments saying Nabe was "one of the funniest people we've ever had."

Sunday’s show began with judges Cowell and Bruno Tonioli visiting a children’s choir called Amasing, where they surprised them by appearing from a giant box.
