X Factor's 5 After Midnight gave an epic performance on Britain's Got Talent tonight.

The group performed their debut single Up In Here on this evening's latest live results show.

The trio's first song, which has been produced by MNEK, is out now to download and stream.

"We're so so so excited for the next stage of 5 After Midnight's journey," the boys said. "We've been working with some incredible artists like MNEK and Raye who have really inspired us and helped us to grow.

"We can't wait to show the world what we've been working on and hope everyone loves it as much as we do."

According to The Sun newspaper, 5 After Midnight's performance on BGT was one of the biggest the show has ever seen.

An insider told the tabloid: “This amount of pyrotechnics has never been used in the history of Britain’s Got Talent, it’s a high-risk and dangerous performance.

“It’s going to be a real showstopper with thirty dancers, so they’ve been rehearsing for 10 days straight to make sure nothing goes wrong as, timing really is everything when you’re dancing with fire.”

The guys also recruited Beyoncé’s choreographer JaQuel Knight - who was behind the Single Ladies video - to work on the routine.

The source added: “He’s responsible for Beyoncé’s Single Ladies video which is one of the most iconic music videos of all time, so the boys are looking to put on the performance of a lifetime.”

It was announced back in January that 5 After Midnight had signed to Simon Cowell's Sony label and were set to release an album later this year.

The vibrant three-piece - Kieran Alleyne (21), Jordan Lee (21) and Nathan Lewis (24) - were finalists on The X Factor last year and were the leading group in the series.

Britain's Got Talent airs live on ITV.
