The Missing People Choir give emotional Britain's Got Talent audition

Missing People Choir.

The Missing People Choir made an emotional appearance on Britain's Got Talent 2017 tonight.

Missing People Choir is a community choir of people, whose loved ones have been missing.

They explained before the audition: "We're all in this together and we can all stand by each other."

Sharing some of their stories, the members of the group reveal how many of them haven't heard from their missing family members for decades.

"Having the support of each other makes us stronger, sitting here together makes us stronger and singing together makes us super strong," they explain, "It's good for the soul."

And they added: "Hopefully some of the youngsters who have gone missing, their photographs will be shown on screen behind us, and maybe someone will come forward and tell us what's happened.

"It only takes one person to recognise a face, we all have to live in hope. If there was no hope, there'd be nothing to live for. We all have a common goal to find out loved ones and bring them home where they belong."

They went on to perform the original song “I Miss You” for the panel to huge praise.

And with four yeses, they won themselves a spot in the next round of the competition.

Other acts in tonight's show included 8-year-old comic Ned Woodman, dancing PC Dan Graham, singing impressionist Jess Robinson and Paws with Soul, a pet dance troupe.

And in opening episode that was full of variety, we also met Jim Fitzpatrick who was hedging his bets as he auditions for the panel with FOUR different acts while Strokes of Madness were hoping their mix of painting and dancing will impress the judges.

More contestants tonight were Richard Taylor with his unique mouth popping talent, magician Niels Harder from The Netherlands and Adam Keeler, who performed a comedy dance routine.

Britain's Got Talent 2017 airs Saturday nights on ITV.
