Britain's Got Talent judges in tears after emotional audition from the 'Missing People Choir'

Alesha Dixon cries

The Missing People Choir left the Britain's Got Talent 2017 judges in tears at auditions in London.

Try outs for the new series of Britain's Got Talent took place across the UK earlier this year with Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.

They're back alongside hosts Ant and Dec for the 11th series and already it seems as though some epic performances have proved a hit with the panel.

Simon became the first judge to hit his golden buzzer at the weekend while another act also impressed with their emotional audition.

The Missing People Choir performed I Miss You for the BGT judges and left them in tears.

The group of singers is made up of relatives of missing persons across the world.

“Images of some of the missing people they were linked to also flashed up on the screen which had everyone in tears," an audience member at the auditions told The Sun during filming. “Judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon were particularly moved."

The source added: "The choir said they had only performed together about seven times.

"You could tell in their voices how much it means to them all.”

The Missing People Choir's song I Miss You was written by Peter Boxell, dad to son Lee who disappeared in London in the 80s.

Britain's Got Talent 2017 will air on ITV from Saturday night.
