Tokio Myers impressed the judges on Britain's Got Talent 2017 tonight with his piano skills.

Tokio is a 32 year old pianist from London who credits his music teacher with inspiring him.

He grew up in a council estate and started playing the piano when he was 9, after his dad bought him his first keyboard.

Tonight saw him take to the the stage to showcase his skills in an impressive audition.

Tokio's performance of Debussy's Clair de Lune and Ed Sheeran's Bloodstream won him a standing ovation.

David Walliams said: "You had us from the first moment, you could have heard a pin drop in here. It was really, really fantastic."

Amanda Holden added: "It was literally like a film score, it just inspired my imagination while I was listening to it. It was really beautiful."

"I think you're really edgy and refreshing and I don't think that could have gone any more brilliantly," Alesha Dixon commented.

Simon Cowell described the act as "very clever" and said: "We've never really had an act like you on this show before. I absolutely loved that audition."

With four yeses from the panel, Tokio sailed through to the next round of the competition with ease.

Other acts on this weekend's show included 'The Queen' and budding balloon breaking record holder Ryan Tracey.

We also met the London School of Bollywood, singer Sian Pattison, magician Josephine Lee, wacky drag act Sanita Laviva and girl group The Miss Treats.

Britain's Got Talent 2017 is back Saturday night at 8PM on ITV with More Talent straight after on ITV2.
