BGT judge Simon Cowell called Hollie ‘inspirational’ as she performed a dance routine to medley of songs – One of which was Ariana Grande’s hit ‘One Last Time‘.
Hollie graced the stage in a wheelchair along with her friends – Their dance troupe was called ‘Rise’ – Her friends reportedly performed in wheelchairs in solidarity.
The group also wore T-shirts with the Manchester bee on the front.
Hollie told BGT judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, quoted by The Sun: “It’s always difficult coming to Manchester.
“This is the first time I’ve been anywhere that’s like an arena, it’s hard.”
Following Hollie’s audition, Simon Cowell said: “To get through what you went through and come here and turn a negative into a positive is incredible.
He added: “You’ve come on and shown what you’re made of. This will inspire a lot of people. I salute you.”
