Who hit the golden buzzer for Gamal John?
For his Britain's Got Talent audition, John performed It's A Man's Man's World by James Brown.
His performance was so powerful, that the singer received a standing ovation and was soon inundated with chants from the audience for the judges to push the golden buzzer – despite all of these chances being used up.
As Alesha Dixon offered up some words to Gamal, Bruno Tonioli swooped in and hit the buzzer leaving Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell open-mouthed.
Amanda placed her hands on Bruno's shoulders as she shook him and exclaimed: "You only get one!"
She then added: "Oh my god, this is chaos!"
Alesha was also stunned as she asked a hapless Bruno: "What have you done to this show?"
With no buzzers being left, the show's set was not correctly rigged with the golden confetti that usually rains upon the act following their achievement.
Gamal was left overwhelmed albeit a bit confused as the judges were left looking perplexed after the blunder.
Simon later quipped of the situation: "We are about to get fired!
"Bruno is a new judge and if you give something, you can't take it away."
