Simon Cowell wants Britain's Got Talent 2016's Vadik and The Bear for his son's birthday

Vadik joined by SIX bear on stage in tonight's third semi-final

VADIK & THE BEAR

Simon Cowell loved Vadik and The Bear so much on Britain's Got Talent 2016 tonight that he invited them to perform at his son Eric's birthday party - but Alesha Dixon ended up BUZZING them.

Belarusian entertainer Vadik Raketa divided the duo at the auditions when he performed a dance routine with a gigantic polar bear by his side.

And the third semi-final of the series tonight saw him return with not one, not two, but SIX polar bears - and a penguin thrown in for good measure.

Alesha wasn't impressed in the slightest and hit her buzzer, making Vadik only the second act so far to be buzzed in this year's live shows.

Simon, however, was on his feet in applause - perhaps because he chose to believe that the polar bears are real.

"How do you train them to do that? There's six of them!" he exclaimed. "I think it's my favourite act of the series so far. In eight months time, Eric's gonna have his third birthday party and you are hired.

"There's no other show where six real polar bears are dancing to Ice Ice Baby with a clown!"

David Walliams suggested that TV's Mr. Nasty had "completely lost the plot", while Alesha went as far as to call it her least favourite act ever.

"I expect more from you Simon Cowell," she blasted. "One bear was a nightmare, this was a real nightmare."

Amanda, however, sided with Simon, saying: "I loved it. It was like a John Lewis advert on acid!"

Vadik will have to wait until tonight's results show at 9.00pm to find out whether he'll make it to the final. His competition includes magician Richard Jones, musician Josh Curnow and Simon's Golden Buzzer act Boogie Storm.
