When this sweet 9-year-old girl appeared before the jury of Britain's Got Talent, few imagined what might happen next. She earned the nickname ‘Golden Dragon’ for her outstanding performance.


The young girl from Northern Ireland auditioned for the ITV popular talent competition created by producer Simon Cowell, who also serves as a judge for the show, and she left both the public and the jury stupefied with her skills.

Jesse Jane McParland showed an impeccable martial arts routine that included the handling of a sword, jumps, kicks, and somersaults. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa

After a well-deserved standing ovation, the first to speak was 58-year-old Cowell who jokingly offered McParland a job as his security guard.

The impressive schoolgirl has started training in martial arts at 3, and she had won several titles, becoming the youngest champion of the WKC, in addition to having won 9 WOMAA European Championships, before her BGT appearance.


A video of her participation at the Junior WAKO World Championships in 2014 had already become a viral phenomenon that went on to gather more than a million views.

McParland defied stereotypes about cute little girls, often pictured as ‘princesses’ or maybe ballet dancers. From a very young age, she felt the call of martial arts, and that’s where she focused her efforts, which have paid off.


‘I used to do ballet and Irish dancing, but I didn’t like it,’ she simply said when she was asked how did she find her passion.

Needless to say, McParland was admitted in the competition, and she finished eighth in that season of the show.

She was later invited to The Ellen Degeneres Show, where she gave the American public a taste of her amazingness.

She told her mother tried to get her to do more traditionally ‘girly’ things, but she replied that ‘not every girl dreams of being a little princess.’
