Britain's Got Talent Contestant, 9 Year-Old Malaki Paul Breaks Down In Tears While Performing But Finishes Off To A Standing Ovation

Emotional: Nine-year-old Malakai Paul broke down during his performance of Beyonce's Listen on Britain's Got Talent, but then finished to receive a standing ovation

It was an emotional installment of Britain's Got Talent this evening, as the audience saw nine-year-old Makai break down in tears midway through his performance just before the final ad break.

As the last part of the show began the youngster, who sang Beyonce's Listen, was seen being comforted by his mother and Alesha Dixon.

The young star eventually overcame his nerves, and Alesha asked: 'Are you alright sweetheart? You did so good. What do you want to do?'


Malaki replied that he would like to sing, and finished his song to receive a standing ovation from the audience and judges.

Blew them away: The judges and crowd went wild as soon as Malaki finished his song



Alesha gushed afterwards: 'Malakai, it’s very, very simple, you are a star. It’s a natural raw talent, that’s what we are looking for. That was amazing sweetheart.'

David Walliams added: 'I thought that was a really special audition, I agree with Alesha, you’re a total star.'
Struggled: The audience and judges were moved when Malaki started to cry halfway through the song
