Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell has made a career out of his uncanny ability to pick talented people out of a crowd of hopefuls.


His latest pick is a father-son duo whose moving original song left many viewers in tears during their first audition for the popular talent show. Jack and dad Tim from Norfolk, Norwich, took to the stage to showcase their talents

As usual, the pair were asked to introduce themselves. Son Jack, 12-years-old, explained that he had played the guitar and sang with his father Tim, 43, all the time. He was confident in his abilities and keen to show off what he could do.

As reported by American Web Media, explaining the song, Tim said: "We've all had family losses and as a father and son, it's a family song, it's about us and being so lucky." And Jack agreed "It's about being lucky to have what we have."

The father-son singing duo wowed both judges and audience with their emotional performance of self-penned song The Lucky Ones – prompting Cowell to hit the magic button and send them straight through to the live shows.


Following the performance, the teary judging panel gave a standing ovation, as presenter Declan Donnelly clutched his heart in awe. An emotional Simon then grabbed his microphone and said: “Tim, Jack, this says it all!” and smashed the golden buzzer.

Tim Goodacre is a musician and father of three. He and his son have been performing since the boy was just five years old, in and around their hometown of Norwich, England. Now they are trying their hand at Britain’s Got Talent.

In unison, father and son sang from the bottom of their hearts, creating a moment TV viewers won’t forget in a hurry. Afterward, they received a standing ovation from a teary-eyed crowd.

Their performance was aired on Saturday night, May 5, and has since gone viral on the internet. It’s not really all that difficult to understand why. The song particularly impressed Simon, who said the musical duo reminded him of himself and his son Eric.
