The well-known Romani singer Bertík Girga has absolutely overwhelmed the jurors of the television competition "Czechia Slovakia Has Talent", performing his own Czech lyrics to the melody of Marc Anthony's song "My Baby You". He dedicated his performance to his late son.

"I wrote the lyrics together with a friend of mine whose son died, just like mine did. Both died of an insidious disease, and this song brought us together," Girga said in the introduction.

"I would like to send this song to all of the children in the world," Girga said. Juror Marta Jandová had difficulty holding back tears during his performance, which received a standing ovation. 

Ultimately the entire Incheba Arena was on their feet for Girga. "You gave us your all," said juror Diana Mórová. 

"You radiate happiness, even though you've lived through something so sad, and the shading, the lyrics said absolutely everything about what has happened in your life, I immensely appreciate it. May I give you a hug?" asked the weeping Jandová, moving to embrace him.

Girga then thanked the juror. It was unanimously decided that he will move on to the next round of the competition.
