Britain's Got Talent 2017: Jamie Lee Harrison stuns with Everybody Hurts cover

Jamie Lee Harrison.

Jamie Lee Harrison stunned on tonight's Britain's Got Talent 2017 tonight with his voice.

Saturday night was round five of the auditions with another batch of contestants hoping for yeses from the judges.

One of those was 24 year old singer songwriter Jamie Lee Harrison from Newcastle - which went down well with Ant and Dec.

Jamie discovered his passion for music while studying at university and has been performing at local pubs and clubs since.

"Recently I got to a brick wall and I thought it was time to give up," Jamie told the judges tonight, "A lot of people saying I don't have it in me but it's all I wanted to do, it's all I've ever known."

Jamie performed REM's 'Everybody Hurts' and impressed the judges and audience with the powerful performance.

"How do you give up on a passion? You just don't!" encouraged Alesha Dixon, "I'm so glad you came here today, that was really soulful and just a beautiful vocal and really honest."

David Walliams added: "As soon as you started singing, it was really moving."

Simon Cowell concluded: "This is what I've been waiting for. I think we've just scratched the surface here, you have a great voice... I heard real soul. You're exactly the kind of person I want to find when we make these shows."

With four yeses, Jamie sailed through to the next round.

Other acts on this weekend include real life couple Tyrone & Mina who like to do “dangerous things” together, with the pair bringing a shocking knife throwing act to the BGT stage.

We also meet the Angelicus Celtis choir, dance group TNG and tappers TapTastik.

More hopefuls this week include wannabe comedian Will Oldfield, Blackpool-based entertainer Mal Ford and all female dance crew Nu Vybe.

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