It's only week one of this year's Britain's Got Talent and Simon Cowell has already hit his Golden Buzzer.

Sarah Ikumu blew everyone away with an incredible performance of 'And I Am Telling You' from Dreamgirls – and Simon was very impressed.

After a standing ovation, Simon seemed to be having an internal battle with himself, before eventually slamming the buzzer and taking the 15-year-old straight through to the live finals.

Simon told the singer that he thought she was good at the beginning, but then halfway through she "became obsessed" and he thought that was pretty impressive.

"It was quite incredible," he told her.

"And for someone of your age to stand on this stage with all the nerves and pressure, to not just nail the song, you made it your song."

The other judges were just as amazed with her brilliant performance.

Amanda said it was "mind-blowing" and she was so happy Sarah had managed to get the Golden Buzzer.

"You are not allowed to have that much talent, it's insane," Alesha told her, before saying that she WOULD have pressed the buzzer – but thought Simon would be able to help her more.

How very The Voice UK of her...

Anyway, everyone – as expected – loved her:

Britain's Got Talent airs on Saturdays at 8pm on ITV.
