Real-Life Billy Elliot Overcomes Bullying And Wows Judges On Britain’s Got Talent

14-year-old dancer Jack Higgins will do just that with his emotional and heartfelt dance on Britain’s Got Talent. The kid just loves to dance, and kept on movin’ even through homophobic bullying from haters who called him gay and told him dance is “just for girls.” It’s practically the storyline of the 2000 uplifting drama Billy Elliot.
