Britain’s Got Talent acts Flintz & Taylor, who were awarded the golden buzzer during their audition, made a mistake at the start of their performance
Ant and Dec offered their support to Britain’s Got Talent contestants Flintz & Taylor after they made a mistake during their final act.
Flintz, aged 23, had misplaced some lyrics during Flintz’s performance. The Geordie hosts gave some advice.
Flintz & Taylor, 17, who are a rapper/pianist duo, first met online during the first Covid-19 lockdown in 2020. They first met at their audition earlier this season.
Alesha Dixon was so impressed with their performance, she gave them the golden buzzer and they were instantly in the semi-finals.
The grand finale was then held after the judges had adjudged. Simon Cowell,Alesha, David Walliams, and Amanda Holden voted them through to victory over two other candidates.
They performed a song that was inspired by their journeys on the show for the finale. Flintz forgot some lyrics at the end of the track, however.
Flintz was shedding tears, but Ant and Dec tried their best to console them.
Ant said to the musician: “It doesn’t get better than working with your best friend, trust me. Just enjoy it, enjoy it.”
Alesha had spoken to Flintz “artist to artist” before Ant offered his advice. She told Flintz that stumbling over his performance was not something to worry about.
“Artist to artist, it doesn’t matter whatever anyone tells you tonight, you’re going to feel bad and I know what that feels like,”She explained.
“You’re going to come off stage and you’re going to beat yourself up about this. But, let me tell you something right now; what you’ve done, what you guys have achieved together on this show far outweighs any teeny tiny mistake up there.”
The BGT judge also added: “And I promise you this, you are going to inspire so many other kids to get out and do what they want and fight because this music industry is hard. And I’m telling you now boys, this is just the beginning.”

Flintz & Taylor never intended to become a double-act but were given microphone by mistake before their audition.
Quacey Goodman aka Flintz had auditioned twice previously for the ITV show solo with no success.
Quacey asked Taylor for a melody to go with his rap, but they only met in person on the day of their audition. Quacey lives near Croydon in South London and Taylor is in Great Barr in Birmingham.
They had only practiced in person once, when they were accidentally given both microphones by producers before being brought onto the stage.
