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

We’ve pretty much seen it all on these televised talent shows, but that doesn’t mean they still can’t warm your cold heart once in awhile.

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.

His moves are amazing, and the look on his face as he awaits his judgment is all of us when we really, really want something. Watch his segment below, and do your best to spot a smile from Simon Cowell. We did…we think.
