The audience was emotional after an incredible performance by a father-son duo.


Tim and Jack Goodacre appeared on Britain’s Got Talent and had no idea that one judge, in particular, would have a strong reaction to their performance.

The father-son duo seems to have a natural knack for music, a fact proved after they auditioned on the reality show.

43-year-old Tim and 12-year-old Jack, from Norwich, were in complete synch with each other. They impressed everyone with their style and passion for creating music together. Jack revealed that he has been singing with his father since the age of five.

They chose to perform their original song, The Lucky Ones, a song about them, according to Tim. He went on to explain why they wrote the song in the first place.


He said, “We’ve all had family losses and things like that, and as a father and son – it’s a father-son and family song. It’s about us.”

Jack added that the song was also about how lucky they were to have everything they had in their lives. 

There was a sense of gratitude when they pair began their performance. They captivated the audience with their beautiful words and their amazing musical talent.

The pair sang their hearts out and described the pain of loss and the hope associated with moving forward. 

The audience and the judges loved their performance and everyone watching Tim and Jack gave them a standing ovation that was led by Simon Cowell.


Just when they completed their son, Dec Donnelly held his hands to his heart, while judge Amanda Holden was in tears.

Simon did not wait another moment before handing them the Golden Buzzer even as Tim and Jack were shocked by their win.


Cowell said, “Great song, it reminded me a bit of my boy. I’ve got to tell you, you two are just fantastic. That was a moment, so pure, so great.”

Alesha Dixon was clearly impressed by the duo and called them the “coolest” father-son act on the show. David Walliams said that it was a beautiful performance and it was wonderful to see a father and son “with this very special connection.”
