Harry Gardner caused tears on Britain's Got Talent 2017 in tonight's show.

It was the latest round of auditions and we met another batch of hopeful acts wanting to make the live shows.


One of them was 16 year old student Harry, a singer from Essex who has been writing songs and playing the piano since he was eight years old.

Harry performed his original song “Not Alone”, which he wrote after his grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

Speaking before his audition, Harry said: "The biggest audience I've probably ever performed to as a school assembly so it's a big step up to be here today, it's quite scary."

He went on to tell the judges: "I just want to share my music with other people and see if they can relate."

Explaining his song choice - an original song called Not Alone - Harry told the panel: "It's a song for my nan. My nan was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s three years ago an this song is a tribute for her.


"I did play it to her but she wasn't really aware of what was going on, she looked happy which was nice."

Taking to the piano, Harry's performance had the judges in tears.

A tearful Amanda Holden told Harry: "Harry, that really moved me. I really just wished your grandma could see what you've done today because I'm sure she'd be so proud of you."

An equally emotional Alesha Dixon added: "I think it takes real courage to put your heart and soul and vulnerability into a song like you just did, it was a fantastic audition."

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

Other acts on this weekend's show included Angara Contortion who hail from Buryatia, Russia and took to the BGT stage with a body bending routine which left the Judges open-mouthed.

We also met lord of the rings, John Parnell, who went in front of the judges with his hula hoops and a very catchy tune to show the Judges just why he’s better known as the Hoop Guy.

But, when Simon and Alesha buzzed, John invited them to join him to show off their skills!


More hopefuls wanting yeses from the judges were the Perfect Pitch Creation choir, man band The Boyz and dodgy impressionist IrShad Shaikh.
