Gruffydd Wyn Delivers Unforgettable Operatic Performance And Earns Golden Buzzer

Some performances on shows such as Britain’s Got Talent are good, some are great, and others are simply unforgettable. In 2018, 22-year-old Welsh hopeful Gruffydd Wyn delivered an audition that was so impressive, his friends and the audience were cheering him on with pride. He performed none other than “Nessun Dorma”, an incredibly difficult song that was originally delivered by the legendary composer Luciano Pavarotti. However, Gruffydd was up to the challenge, and delivered with aplomb.

Not only did Gruffydd wow the crowd, but he particularly impressed Amanda Holden, who gave him the coveted Golden Buzzer for his performance! This sent the young Welshman straight to the competition’s semi-finals. His friends, who were watching in the crowd, went from ecstatic to emotional as they saw their friend get one step closer to achieving his dreams. The entire clip is incredibly emotional, so get a tissue ready and prepare for an incredible audition! Watch below:

Before the performance, we find out a little more about young Gruffydd. He comes from an island in North Wales called Anglesey, which has been the subject of many battles in the country’s history. One of the most notable parts of Anglesey is Beaumaris Castle, which was built by the English King Edward I around 1295. Alongside living amongst history, he also lives with his loving nan, who supports Gruffydd in everything that he does.

“Nessun Dorma” is one of the best-known operatic passages of all time. Known as an aria – a self-contained solo performance with no instrumental support – it comes from the final act of the opera Turandot by Giacomo Puccini. It became hugely popular when Pavarotti took to the stage for the 1990 FIFA World Cup and skyrocketed the song into modern culture. It became so popular that it hit the UK Singles chart, where it reached the number 2 spot at its peak. Watch Pavarotti perform it here:

Gruffydd advanced from the semi-final of Britain’s Got Talent, and up to 4th place before being eliminated. After his appearance and ultimate elimination from the competition, Gruffydd also competed in S4C’s Cân i Gymru where he performed ‘Cyn i’r llenni gau’. He won the competition and collected an impressive £5,000 prize, and was also allowed to perform at the 2020 Pan Celtic Festival in Ireland.
