bgt-week-5

Britain's Got Talent 2017 auditions continued on Saturday night and here the best try outs from the fifth week.

Based on online hits and shares since the weekend, here are the top four ranked performances.

But who came out on top? Here's the full countdown...

Matt Edwards

Matt went out on stage like a deer caught in headlights, telling the judges he specialises in 'crazy, variety' magic rather than sleight-of-hand. His zany trick started with a shot of tequila, and ended with a seemingly endless supply of salt pouring from his hand.

Chuckling from the sidelines, Ant commented: "It's like if Lee Evans done magic". Just as the judges were about to vote, he and Dec went out to hit the Golden Buzzer, guaranteeing Matt's place in the live shows.

 

Jamie Lee Harrison

Pub and club singer Jamie was tempted to give up his dream after people told him he 'didn't have what it takes'. However, he proved his haters wrong when his cover of REM's 'Everybody Hurts' won a standing ovation.

"Your heart and your warmth just oozes out of you," Amanda commented, with Simon adding: "I heard real soul. You're exactly the kind of person I wanna find when we make these shows."

 

TNG

To use Alesha's words, TNG (The Next Generation, to give them their full title) "scared the living daylights" out of the judges by creeping up on them at the desk in their clown costumes.

The troupe eventually burst out in to a dance routine that David described as "imaginative", adding: "I think you're really gonna stand out."

 

Mal Ford

Retired showbiz manager Mal's keyboard version of 'La Bamba' was quickly buzzed by all four judges - but he continued playing regardless. Ant eventually went out on stage to get him to stop, but ended up being roped in to his performance!

With the audience on his side, Mal eventually won over the judges and earned a place on the shortlist.

 

Britain's Got Talent continues Saturday nights on ITV.
