Britain’s Got Talent ‘fix’ row as golden buzzer act is revealed as West End performer

She got a standing ovation from all four judges as she was covered in golf confetti falling from above after Amanda Holden elected to send her straight through to the semi-final.

But viewers are up in arms claiming Sidney’s professional performing background has given her an unfair advantage over less experienced acts.

One wrote on X: “No way. She’s either got an album out already or has been signed somewhere. Sydnie is pro already I reckon.”

Another posted: “Why did Sydnie get a Golden Buzzer. She’s a professional for goodness sake.”

A third said: “Oh shock. Sydnie has been in the West End already.”

A fourth vented: “Everyone does know that Sydnie girl is a west end star already…. Cheated her way to that Golden Buzzer!”

Sydnie has starred in Starlight Express in Bochum, Germany, and Lazarus at London’s King’s Cross Theatre.

Posting a video of her performing on stage, Sydnie wrote: “Moments like this I count my lucky stars.”

She also played Rizzo in Grease theatre show and regularly shares throwback snaps of her time on stage.

“There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why. …

“Never forget what you came here to do. Love what you choose, as every choice is yours.”

In tonight’s launch show as the crowds went wild for Sydnie, Amanda Holden was heard saying “it’s too early” as the crowd chanted Sydnie’s name.

The judge told Sydnie: “That was the best version of it that I’ve heard heard in my mind, so I’m going to do this…”

In a surprise move, Amanda hit the golden buzzer – and sent Sydnie through to the semi-finals.

Overwhelmed Sydnie was in tears as she stared up at the roaring audience.

Her adoring grandmothers watching from the Palladium jumped up and down as they took in the news.

Sydnie was heard shouting “let’s have it”, which appears to be her chosen catchphrase.

She told the crowd: “Thanks so much. Thanks for screaming for me.”
