Britain's Got Talent 2017: Angelicus Celtis choir give emotional audition

Angelicus Celtis.

Angelicus Celtis gave an emotional audition on Britain's Got Talent 2017 tonight.

This evening saw the fifth bumper episode of auditions with eleven brand new acts hoping for at least three yeses from the judges.

Or maybe even the golden buzzer...

One of the acts hoping to win over the judges were Angelicus Celtis, a choir from Wales made up of school girls aged 11-17.

They have been performing together for around a year and are led by their teacher Mr. Williams, who is the choir’s biggest inspiration.

The group said before their audition: "Our inspiration is our teacher Mr Williams, he's our hero. he's such a great teacher and he brings out the best in all of us, but he's had a difficult year.

"Mr Williams was in a terrible car crash, he was badly injured but he fought back tot be there with us and made Angelicus happen."

Mr Williams co-founded the choir with his wife Mrs Williams who sadly passed away and never got the chance to see them perform.

For their BGT audition, the group performed “Nessun Dorma” in her memory leading to a touching performance.

Simon Cowell reacted: "I've heard this song a lot and this was the most beautiful, incredible version I've heard. Really, really, it touched me. I'm so excited for your future."

And Amanda Holden commented: "You are the most lovely bunch of girls, it was so beautiful. The harmonizing was stunning, you did so well."

With four yeses, the girls 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.
