McFly dedicate Britain’s Got Talent performance to NHS staff


McFly dedicated their Britain’s Got Talent semi-final performance to NHS workers, working on the frontline amid the global pandemic.

The four-piece – made up of Danny Jones, Harry Judd, Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher – stopped by the ITV studios to bless us all with a snippet of All About You, while videos of healthcare staff played out behind them.

As well as this, they also belted out their new song, Happiness, and were joined by the NHS choir for the performance.

‘On behalf of our entire country, thank you so much to our incredible NHS,’ Danny yelled before they segued into their new single.

Things hit a slight snag at the end of the performance when balloons and confetti fell from the ceiling – and presenter Dec kicked a huge balloon into a nurse’s face.

After apologising to said nurse, he told the group: ‘That was amazing, and what an amazing choir to be collaborating with as well. Fantastic.’

Lifting the lid on how the performance came about, Harry explained: ‘We just wanted to do something. We felt pretty helpless, like the rest of the nation.

McFly’s appearance comes a week after Diversity made headlines with their emotional routine in the first BGT semi-final.

The dance troupe – who were crowned winners of the talent show in 2009 – returned to the stage for a brand new performance, which was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.

They also referenced taking the knee and the death of George Floyd, who died earlier this year.

However, while some viewers were moved by the emotional performance, and praised the dancers on social media, others complained to Ofcom in their droves.

The TV watchdog confirmed that complaints over last Saturday’s episode of the talent show topped 15,000, breaking a 2020 record – with the majority related to the routine.

Dancer Jordan Banjo fought tears when discussing the criticism and abuse that they had faced in the days since the show aired – while co-star Perri Kiely instructed any haters to get in the bin.

And it seems BGT judge Alesha Dixon was in agreement, replying to a post from Ashley Banjo on the complaints, penning: ‘They can kiss my black a**!’
