Dance troupe MerseyGirls staged an emotional return to Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday, two years after Simon Cowell paid for spinal surgery for member Julia Carlile.
Britains Got Talent: MerseyGirls Have Viewers And All Four Judges In Tears With Emotional Post-Surgery Return
The group earned a place in the final of The Champions spin-off series after reducing all four judges and viewers at home to tears. Julia, who first appeared on BGT in 2017, was told she would never dance again ahead of an operation for scoliosis, prompting Simon to intervene and pay for her to have the surgery done in America. 
As she returned to the stage with her fellow dancers, the judges watched in amazement as she performed back bends and back flips as part of a high-energy routine. 
A visibly upset Simon told them after the performance: “It is one person’s strength, and beyond that is the friendship and support; the fact you stayed together and supported each other and the fact you were able to came back tonight – it’s everything.”
David Walliams said: “This is really emotional. We are all absolutely in bits, I’m sure the nation is too. Well done girls, every one of you made something really special.”Alesha Dixon, who hit the golden buzzer for the group in 2017, said: “If I had another golden buzzer I  would have pressed it again. When you did the back flip across stage it made my heart soar,” while Amanda Holden hailed Carlile as “a walking miracle, a dancing, back-flipping miracle”.
She added: “I think it’s one of the most emotional performances we have ever had on the show and all you girls are absolutely outstanding dancers.”
Overcome by emotion on stage Julia replied: “I literally thought by now I would be at home, not dancing for the rest of my life. Here I am at Wembley, back flipping with my best friends, it’s crazy.
“I couldn’t walk two years ago and now I’m here.”
The moment also had viewers watching at home in tears...Cheers. Mersey Girls. Inspirational.
