Destiny Chukunyere, Reuben Gray and Leah Barniville have all been confirmed for the Britain's Got Talent live shows.

The trio of young singers are amongst the confirmed top 40 contestants in the semi-finals.

Destiny is a 14 year old school girl from Malta who loves soul and gospel and started singing four years ago in school. Since then she's already enjoyed some success; she previously entered and won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

On the BGT stage, Destiny said she was "excited but nervous" as she named the likes of Beyonce and Aretha Franklin as her inspiration.

And it was an Aretha track that Destiny took on for her audition, belting out Think for the panel.

Simon Cowell concluded: "Destiny, I've been waiting for someone to come out who we think could be a star and guess who it is? You have soul."

14-year-old Irish school girl Leah meanwhile surprised the Britain's Got Talent 2017 panel in last Saturday's latest try outs.

Leah performed Caruso by Lucio Dalla for the panel with Alesha Dixon describing the audition as "controlled and beautiful" while Amanda Holden said it was "flawless".

Meanwhile, 16-year-old Reuben Gray impressed on Britain's Got Talent 2017 with an original song.

In the auditions, Reuben performed his own song called Lifeline, explaining it was an apology song to his girlfriend who previously dumped him.

Reuben got four yeses from the panel with Simon Cowell saying: "Good for you. That was a great audition Ruben, you've come on and been authentic, be original. I really, really like the song, You've got talent."

David Walliams added: "What a talented young man you are. Incredible to write such a beautiful song at your tender age to sing it so beautifully."

Destiny, Reuben and Leah will go on to perform LIVE next week in a bid to make the grand final.
