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.

by Tim Winfred September 28, 2016

Yeah, we know most people aren’t the biggest fan of RuPaul‘s Drag Race season 2 winner Tyra Sanchez – she was controversial during her time on the show, and her post-show career hasn’t been a smooth ride either. Nevertheless, her new track Vogue is seriously hot, and worth a listen. The song’s beat is reminiscent of [...]
