Blake was awarded the golden buzzer for his audition on Britain’s Got Talent 2022 by judge Simon Cowell, who was blown away by his performance.
In his stand-up routine, he made light of the fact that he named his newborn daughter Pfizer because she was born during the pandemic.
After a difficult few years in the pandemic, Simon said that the show “needed acts like him.”
David Walliams, the judge, said: “On that stage tonight, a comedic giant is born.
This is too good to be true. So effortless, and you’ve got such a wonderful, appealing personality; everything you said was brilliantly original and funny “Nonetheless,.
Fans were pleased with Blake’s performance, but some wondered if it was fair to award him the golden buzzer because he is a professional and has his own show on Amazon Prime.
In the wake of Loren Allred’s victory, many viewers expressed their displeasure at the “professionals getting the golden buzzer” treatment.
One viewer tweeted, “No this is a joke, he’s already got his own show and tours.”
Axel’s performance in the semi-finals received a standing ovation from the judges, making it another successful performance for him.
With his victory in the semifinal, he qualified for the grand final, where a cash prize of £250,000 and a spot on the Royal Variety Performance stage were on offer to the winner.
