BBC viewers grew tearful as they watched the Children in Need choir perform an “emotional” and “beautiful” song at the charity event.
The annual BBC fundraiser was hosted by Graham Norton, as well as Chris Ramsey, Alex Scott, Mel Giedroyc, and Ade Adepitan.
The charity show even had superstar singers like Ed Sheeran grace the stage, and exclusive performances from Anne Marie and Niall Horan – who performed a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Everywhere.
However, it was the Children in Need choir that got fans reaching for the tissues at home on Friday (November 19) – when the show aired.
The choir, made up of young singers all over the UK, perform at the event every year, and it’s always a hit with the viewers at home.
This year was no different, because the kids performed a rendition of Andra Ray’s track Rise Up.
Viewers at home became rather emotional as they watched the choir perform, with many praising the young singers on Twitter.
One fan said: “Oh god kids singing always sets me off!”
A second fan wrote: “Rise up always makes me emotional”
A third commented: “every year, without fail, the choir singing ALWAYS gives me goosebumps and gets me sobbing”
A fourth penned: “Choir beautifully singing Rise Up by Andra Day. As if today hasn’t been emotional enough.”
A fifth added: “The children’s choir always has me crying – beautiful little souls! Well done.”
Last year, the Children in Need perform Coldplay’s 2005 track, Fix You, during the pandemic.
The show hosted a number of segments, such as Danny Dyer presenting a special edition of the game show, The Wall.
Graham Norton was even roped into sitting in his famous Red Chair, which he usually uses to punish his guests if they tell boring stories on his talk show, The Graham Norton Show.
This year’s event was the first to be held at the BBC’s Media City studio in Salford, Manchester.
