One of the acts performing this year was 12-year-old school boy Dylan.

“I don’t really sing in front of my friends, I’m a bit shy,” Dylan said before heading out on stage. “I’ve been singing since I was little with my sisters and now I’m here… and I’m very scared.”

Dylan went on to belt out Beyoncé’s hit Listen and got a standing ovation.


Bruno enthused “Oh wow! I definitely listened to THAT!”

Alesha reacted: “Wow, I think I spent most of that audition gobsmacked. I don’t think I was expecting so much, not only incredible tone but your technique is off the scale. You are phenomenal, you’re twelve years old… wow!”

Amanda agreed “Flawless.”

Meanwhile Simon commented: “I like your personality, you picked one of the most iconic, difficult songs for your first audition. I think it says a lot about you, you’re confident, who you want to be… I really like you.”

With four yeses, Dylan sailed through to the next round.

Other acts appearing on Britain’s Got Talent this weekend included dancing PE teacher Felix Clements who impressed with a solo routine and musicians Playtoy Orchestra, who performed classical music on toy instruments.

Performers are going head to head to win the opportunity to take to the stage at the Royal Variety Performance and enjoy a big cash prize.
