Musa Motha’s ‘Poetic’ Final Performance on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Semi-Finals
South African dancer Musa Motha may not have won Britain’s Got Talent (BGT) season 16, but he has surely won the hearts of audiences and viewers at home. His final performance was nothing short of inspirational.
The Performance that Won Hearts
The 27-year-old, who lost his left leg at the age of 10 due to a bone cancer called osteosarcoma in 2006, delivered yet another tear-jerker on stage during the finale on Sunday, 4 June. Dressed in a yellow suit, Motha gave it his all in an incredible performance of light and darkness. The dancer was also occasionally joined by backup dancers during his performance.
Musa Motha’s performance impressed Judges and Standing Ovation
His performance received a standing ovation, and the judges too were impressed. Alisha described him as “inspirational,” and BGT described it as “poetic” on Twitter. Motha competed in the final against singer Amy Lou, comedic dancer Viggo Venn (who was crowned the winner), singer Olivia Lynes, Ugandan dancers Ghetto Kids, singer Travis George, singer Malakai Bayoh, acrobats Duo Odyssey, magician Cillian O’Connor, and dancer Lillianna Clifton.
A Proud Mother’s Perspective
Speaking to the Daily Sun last week, Motha’s mother, Ntokozo Motale, expressed her pride in her son’s journey. She recalled the days when he started dancing and admitted to being worried about his safety. However, seeing his determination and passion, she is now a proud mother.
“I am proud of Musa because he never gave up on life after his leg was amputated but learned to use crutches that have made him the best dancer in the world,” Ntokozo said.
