Six-year-old Irish dancer wows Simon Cowell

There was a sparkling pint-sized surprise for Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent back in 2018, Irish dance sensation Oscar Donnelly.

The six-year-old star has already made a name for himself in Irish dance circles, with leading dance troupe Fusion Fighters one of many championing the youngster online.

Now, the fearless dancer has stepped out onto one of the biggest stages of them all, in front of TV’s toughest judge Simon Cowell.

As he stepped out to audition he was asked quizzed by comedian David Walliams about himself.

Oscar explained that he is six years old and from Scotland.

When asked what he would do with the £250,000 prize money if he were to win the show he replied he would buy a Bugatti, much to petrol head Simon Cowell’s delight.

However, little Oscar took the whole thing in his stride and performed a faultless audition to progress through to the next round of the competition.

The Motherwell lad bravely performed his own routine without any backing dancers to share the weight of expectation.

Dancing to Shipping Up To Boston, the classic Irish rock song from the Dropkick Murphys’, little Oscar showcased all his Irish dancing skills as he tapped, leapt and jumped around the stage.

The judges were thrilled by the performance, as were the audience in the theatre.

He was promptly given a ‘Yes’ vote each of the four judges to progress through to the next round.
