After ITV show was met with more than 24,000 Ofcom complaints about Diversity’s powerful routine on George Floyd’s death, as well as police brutality and taking the knee.
Alesha supported her fellow judge and Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo, as she was seen rocking three Celine-Esque necklaces, with the initials spelling out BLM. She matched her accessory with a yellow, off the shoulder minidress and a sparkling smile.
Fans who were watching from home took Twitter to praise her for her clear message. This includes tweets like,
“Loving Alesha Dixon BLM Jewellery on BGT #BLM #aleshadixon #BGT #Nomoreexcuses”— DaphneRC (@rc_daphne)
and “Alesha Dixon wearing a BLM necklace is such a power move and I am HERE for it #BGT #BritainsGotTalent”— faith (@faithbxx)
She said, “On the day of the performance, the camera didn’t actually pan to the judges and I was sitting there in floods of tears. I had this overwhelming feeling of, “Wow I can’t believe I am watching this on BGT.” It felt really important.”
