Innocent Masuku: A Voice to Remember on Britain’s Got Talent 2024

When South African singer Innocent Masuku stepped onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage in 2024, he was about to surprise everyone with his electrifying operatic performance. Innocent’s rich tenor voice immediately captivated Italian judge Bruno Tonioli, marking the start of a memorable audition that would later stir controversy for not receiving the Golden Buzzer.

Performing Lucio Dalla’s opera piece “Caruso,” Innocent demonstrated flawless pronunciation and extraordinary vocal prowess, leaving both the audience and judges in awe. His ability to embody the essence of opera with such enthusiasm and skill made his performance not just traditional, but truly astonishing. As Innocent’s voice filled the auditorium, Bruno stood, arms outstretched in admiration, while Alesha Dixon described the experience as “overwhelming” and “divine.” Amanda Holden praised him as the best opera singer in the show’s seventeen-season history.

Aged 33 and now a London resident, Innocent’s charm was undeniable from the moment he appeared on stage, donning a black and white shirt handcrafted by his mother. This personal touch, along with his vocal talent, earned him a unanimous ‘Yes’ from all judges, propelling him to the next round.
