Britain's Got Talent 2013 judges blown away by shadow dance group Attraction

Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions - Attraction

The Britain's Got Talent judges have named shadow dance group Attraction as one of their favourite acts from the first episode.

The nine-strong Hungarian outfit's unique act sees them tell stories using the movement of their bodies, which are projected as shadows on to a screen in front of them.

Earlier this evening viewers saw their emotional audition piece reduce Amanda Holden to tears, while Alesha Dixon described it as 'poignant'.

And when asked about which of tonight's hopefuls had 'moved' them the most after a preview screening on Thursday, the panel unanimously backed them.

"Attraction was something we'd never seen before, and the whole story and the emotion behind it was so beautiful," commented Alesha. "It was genuinely touching."

"I know I cry every year, but it absolutely got me in the gut," added Amanda. "I didn't know the backstory, so I didn't know it was true and that made it doubly worse for me when I watched it again. But every single time I've seen it, I've completely wept. It's beautiful."

Simon Cowell agreed, and also backed 14-year-old comedian Jack Carroll and shy singer Alice Fredenham. Talking about the latter, he praised: "You can't help but fall in love with that girl, I mean she was beautiful and humble."

He also put a word in for stripping chair dancer Kerri Graham, having got up on stage for the first time ever to join her. The 53-year-old quipped: "She just got me!"

BGT continues next Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
