People have been trying to recall whether they have seen the Married At First Sight UK star Alexis Economou before. She has indeed appeared in Britain's Got Talent as a part of Golden Buzzer performance a few years ago. In 2014, Alexis had impressed the judge Alesha Dixon of Britain's Got Talent with her performance.
She had performed as a part of the girl group REAformed. The golden buzzer had let the band directly into the semi-finals of the reality show. She was in the band alongside her friends Renetta Eagle and Ebony Cantwell. They had performed The Kiki Dee Band’s 1974 song I’ve Got The Music In Me for their audition.

The judge Alesha Dixon had stated that the girl group was the best one she and other judges had seen on the show so far. Hearing the remarks from judges, she, including her friends were seen wiping their tears as they got emotional.
The band received a loud applaud from the audience as well. She was 21 at the time when her group was chosen by Alesha as her Golden Buzzer act.
Alesha said that:
I will support you the whole way. Well I started out in girl group and I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Mis-Teeq, so that’s what I saw when I saw in those girls. And that’s why I want to support you the whole way.
Judge Alesha had walked to the stage to hug the trio after their performance. Alexis had also revealed on the stage that she had met judge Alesha before when she was 15 years old. The revelation had surprised the audience and the judges.
Unfortunately, they couldn't make it to the finals. They got eliminated in the semi-finals of the show.
