Simon Cowell got a taste of his own medicine when one young auditionee took the opportunity to roast him on Britain’s Got Talent.
The TV judge, 63, was on the receiving end of a brutal joke from 11-year-old Harrison, who auditioned with Boycanto, a group of boys hoping to inspire others to perform.
Before wowing the panel and audience with a performance of Revolting Children from Matilda, the group spoke to Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, Bruno Tonioli, and, of course, Simon about their hopes and dreams.
Taking the lead, Harrison said: ‘We’re from all around England and we’re here to promote boys dancing, singing, and acting.’
Amanda proceeded to ask: ‘If you won, what would mean more to you, performing in front of King Charles or winning £250,000?’
Clearly not money-orientated, Harrison had a sweet response.
‘King Charles!’, he said, without a moment of hesitation.
Simon then snapped his fingers, Legally Blonde style, but Harrison wasn’t done there.
‘You’ve gotta remember, it’s not all about the money, Simon!’, Harrison quipped.
His savage joke left the panel in stitches.
‘I 100% agree!’, Simon argued, proving he’s got a sense of humour.
‘Oh, well done, Harrison,’ Amanda praised.
Their energetic performance went on to earn them four yeses from the judges, sending them through to the next round with ease.
Heaping praise on the group, despite being roasted earlier on, Simon told them: ‘You are revolting – and that’s a good thing.’
‘This was a really, really good audition, but just be really badly behaved going forwards,’ he teased.
‘My daughter’s obsessed with Matilda and I think children are gonna absolutely love you, your passion and energy was fantastic,’ Alesha added.
Bruno hailed their attitude ‘spot on’ and said enthusiastically: ‘You’re so bad, and I love it!’
‘Your singing was really, really good,’ Amanda said.
Viewers at home were also loving the group’s energy – and their savage takedown of Simon.
‘That kid saying it’s not all about the money Simon – such a wise little boy’, one person tweeted.
‘Well done Boycanto that was brilliant and full of energy as well!’, another praised.
‘Boycanto …. I love this and makes a change !’, one added.
Britain’s Got Talent continues next weekend on ITV and ITVX.
