Elderly 'Britain's Got Talent' contestant shocks judges


Elderly 'Britain's Got Talent' contestant shocks judges

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Apr 17, 2014

Despite having been a judge on several television competition shows, it seems as though Simon Cowell has still not yet learned not to judge a book by its cover.

Paddy, 79, and young Nico were nothing short of an odd couple as they took the stage on "Britain's Got Talent." And their slow ballroom start had Cowell yawning within the first couple of minutes and pushing his red X.

Then, however, the music changed and so did their pace.

Watch above as this "Electric Ballroom" had the judges screaming, holding their breath and leaping out of their chairs for a standing ovation.

Oh, and Cowell himself offers an apology. When does that ever happen?
