You don’t see an 80-year-old woman professionally dancing with a 30-year-old man on TV. That is why when octogenarian Padi and her young dancing partner Nico walked into the stage of Britain’s Got Talent, Simon Cowell was quick to roll his eyes and say, ‘’Well this is weird.’’

And it was. It truly was. But who said weird things cannot be beautiful and inspiring?
