Irish musicians Jack and Cormac, camp dance troupe Glambassadors and singer Rosie O'Sullivan were among the successful acts on this week's Britain's Got Talent.
The ITV talent contest entered its fifth round of auditions tonight, with judges David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell manning the buzzers as another group of weird and wacky hopefuls took to the stage.
It kicked off with Jack Duff and Cormac Connell, aged just thirteen and fourteen respectively, who won a standing ovation from the audience with their cover of Of Monsters And Men's track 'Little Talk'.
An impressed David was quick to describe them as 'One Direction meets Simon and Garfunkel', but Mr Cowell was a bit more hesitant.
"It was good, it wasn’t great," he told the boys. "But when it worked, the moments when it worked the two of you singing together it was really good. And I do like your taste in music; it does feel like you’ve chosen the songs, not your mum."
Despite the criticism, they walked off with four yesses - as did 19-year-old Rosie, who sung 'This Is A Man's World', and retired 71-year-old Kelly Fox (a.k.a. Sandra Broadbent), whose cheeky rendition of 'Kiss My Ass' had Simon literally kissing Amanda's ass.
"You’ve got sex appeal, you’ve got loads of energy, aggression, you’re really feisty," cooed Amanda. "I love that song.”
However, it wasn't good news for Justin Bongoman - whose singing was described as 'atrocious' - and Peruvian musician Horlando Salinas, who left the stage in tears when Simon criticised his performance.
Meanwhile, there was fierce competition between the dancers, with no less than six groups trying out for the panel - including two made up of youngsters.
Pre-Skool - a sister act of last year's finalists Nu Sxool - rivalled Youth Creation, which features a whopping 33 seven to fourteen-year-olds from Essex.
But they both won four yesses, alongside Glambassadors, a troupe of seven male dancers. "You know what; I don’t normally like things that are camp, but today I’m going to make an exception," quipped David.
Having competed in the 2007 and 2009 series in different guises, the new line-up of Liverpool outfit MD Productions turned up for a third shot - but their routine left Simon 'very disappointed'.
"The very first time I saw you, was honestly one of the best things I’d ever seen on the show," he commented. "But this is not in the same league. What you did before I’d never ever seen before, this I’ve seen variations of."
He decided to vote against them - but they still got through after getting three yesses from the other judges.
The Mazeppa Cossacks also scored three out of four - and surprise surprise, it was Simon who was unhappy.
"I can’t remember the last time I decided; you know what I want to watch tonight, Cossack Dancing. Do I want to see it again? Not particularly," Simon sniped.
Comedy came courtesy of Eddie Shand, a 53-year-old Royal Mail worker from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, and Philip Green, a 21-year-old Body Shop customer consultant from Surrey.
But while Eddie fell flat, Philip had the auditorium howling with laughter as he imitated stars including Lorraine Kelly, Louie Spence and Natalie Cassidy.
"Are you sure you’re not related to Stacey Solomon?" pondered Alesha. "I think you’re really funny, loveable."
After Philip left with four yesses, Simon sent a warning to fellow mimic Francine Lewis - who proved a hit three weeks ago - saying: "It might be fun to have two impressionists in the finals."
The Britain's Got Talent auditions continue next Saturday at 7.30pm on ITV.
