Taking to the stage to impress the judges and audience, shadow theatre group Attraction Juniors performed an act similar to the original Attraction, who had actually won Britain’s Got Talent in 2013.
As soon as they introduced themselves, saying ‘We are the Junior group of Attraction,’ Amanda let out a huge gasp, as did most of the audience.
Simon added: ‘The Attraction Juniors… that’s amazing.’
Martin, who was leading the troupe, explained that his father was the leader of Attraction, Zoltán Szűcs, who was waiting backstage, and heard saying that he was ‘nervous’.
Martin continued: ‘Attraction Juniors was created by my father, he performed here with Attraction back in 2013.
Because of my father, I think i can say I learned from the best.’

When Simon asked if the original or junior group was better, Martin of course confirmed: ‘Yes, we are better.’
Following in the generation above’s footsteps, which Simon likened to the Von Trapp family from The Sound of Music, the judges were amazed by the audition, which resulted in Amanda in tears over the heartfelt performance about bullying.
Making shapes and silhouettes with their bodies, the performance ended with the dancers spelling out ‘Be Kind’.

Backstage, Ant commented: ‘They know how to get you!’ as the emotional piece left many audience members with tears in their eyes.
Amanda said: ‘I thought the entire piece was very relevant, in this world of social media.
‘I loved the message, it was very simple, I think you’re an absolute inspiration.’

‘I love that you’re Attraction Juniors, we fell in love with what came before you, and I’m excited about your future now as well.’

David said: ‘It’s great when a piece has a message, very powerfully put. I think it’s brilliant you’re doing something from the heart in this imaginative way, so I couldn’t fault it guys, well done.’
Simon added: ‘I think what you did was fantastic and I had a feeling it was going to be special.
‘I love this kind of audition, I can see how moved a lot of you are, you felt the audience reaction, I love moments like this.’
After the act received its deserved four yes’, Zoltán was heard backstage saying to his Juniors: ‘I’m really proud of you.’
Attraction were named the winners of Britain’s Got Talent 2013, leaving stand-up comedian Jack Carroll in second place.
Attraction told Ant and Dec after their big win: ‘It’s amazing and unbelievable. This is my proudest moment. Thank you very much. Thank you the British public, thank you.’
Britain’s Got Talent continues on Monday at 8pm on ITV.
