Afronita and Abigail, two amazing dancers from Ghana, have advanced to the finals of Britain’s Got Talent 2024, which took place on Thursday night.

Being included among the finalists is a dream come true for them, for Ghanaians, and for their supporters, making their night an emotional one.

The duo wowed the judges and audience with an impressive dance routine that expressed their Ghanaian roots and displayed their incredible talent.

Afronita and Abigail performed a medley of well-known songs, including Toofan’s “Gweta,” Beyoncé’s “Run the World,” and Fuse ODG’s “Azonto.”

Even during the judges’ comments, the audience enthusiastically showered them with praise for their performance, which earned them a standing ovation.

Judge Amanda Holden praised the Ghanaian dancers’ semi-final performance, calling it “unbelievable.”

“It’s a pleasure to watch you; you truly are a tonic for the spirit,” she said. “Your personality truly comes through, your musicality is incredible, and your distinct dancing style is so lovely.”

Judge Bruno Tonioli told them, “Love you, love you.”

Afronita and Abigail even received acclaim from the famously strict judge Simon Cowell, who said, “When you’ve got it, you’ve got it.”

He added that the Ghanaian dancers had left him completely bewildered and that, despite thinking he knew who would win the competition just a day earlier, he was now second-guessing his prediction after watching their captivating act.

Afronita expressed her gratitude for making it this far after their performance.

“It’s a huge testament for me, Abigail, Ghana, and all of our supporters,” she said. “We’re really appreciative. Thanks to God and everyone, it’s been quite emotional.”

Abigail’s mother and other admirers who accompanied the two dancers to the auditorium conveyed their enthusiasm.

Social media users in Ghana celebrated the accomplishments of Afronita, who is 20 years old, and Abigail, who is 7 years old, from across the world. The two dancers have a sizable fan base among the general public.

The public vote on the fourth night of the semi-finals propelled Afronita and Abigail to the finale.

In the finale on Sunday, they will face off against ten other competitors.

What opportunity will Sunday present for them to make history?
