David: Hello.
Billy: Hello.
David: What are your names?
Billy: My name is Billy. And this is my sister Emily.
David: Oh . . . So how long have you known each other?
David: So Billy and Emily, how old are you guys?
Billy: I’m 28 and she’s 25.
David: Take it away: the stage is yours.

Billy: My name’s Billy.
Emily: I’m Emily. We’re from Birmingham.
Billy: We’re brother and sister, and we’re roller skaters. We started roller skating when we were little kids.
Emily: I was five and my brother was eight. Our mother saw on TV some roller skaters. And she thought, “Oh that elegant and safe — something nice that we can do together. So she bought us roller skates . . . and from that moment on, we were hooked.
Billy: I love skating with my sister: I will not skate with anyone else.
Emily: He’s my big brother, and I’ve always looked up to him — I perform with my best friend.

Today we want to make our parents proud.

And we’re going to give it our all.

Billy: We’re going to try to put on a great show, and hopefully the judges and audience will love it.

Alesha: That was SO dangerous! I was so worried for you heads. You’re fearless. You put a fresh spin on roller skating. I thought it was fantastic!
Amanda: It was dangerous and fresh. So I congratulate you for being so exciting to roller skating and Britain’s Got Talent.
Simon: I’ve seen a lot of roller skating acts on this show; normally they are horrific, cause what can you do on a stage with roller skates?

I’ve actually never seen an act like that in my life.

I mean it’s incredible. Really incredible.

David: I’m going to kick this off with a big, fat “YES”!
Amanda: Very, very easy “yes”. Well done.
Alesha: Massive “Yes” for me.
Simon: It’s a big, fat “yes”!

Emily: It was a dream come true.
