A 79-year-old dancer didn’t impress “Britain’s Got Talent,” judge Simon Cowell right away.

And as Paddy and her partner Nico took to the stage, neither was the audience.  But that didn’t stop them from putting on a show.

The pair began slowly at first.  The camera even took a shot of Mr. Cowell yawning before he reached for his buzzer.

Then, about forty seconds into the performance everything changed.

And nobody expected the 79-year-old dancer to perform the way she did.

When it was over, Cowell had to issue a mea culpa.

“I apologize for what I did because I did obviously buzz a little early,” he said. “The British public are going to fall in love with Paddy. She is going to steal the show.”
