Britain's Got Talent act shocks judges with stripping magic trick

Sora

Britain's Got Talent act Sora shocked the judges tonight with a stripping magic trick.

SORA is a 26-year-old magician from Japan who flew to the UK to audition for the panel.

"Today I will show you magic," he confidently began the routine alongside a glamour assistant.

For his act, Sora presented the judges with a sketch book allowing them to randomly pick a selection of underwear.

"This combination may seem completely random... actually this is a prediction, do you want to see my prediction?" he then asked.

As his assistant then prepared to strip, Sora instead whipped off his clothes to reveal the selection of underwear chosen by the judges.

"I want to imagine someone literally tuning into the show at this moment, going 'What the bloody hell's going on?'" reacted Simon Cowell.

David Walliams joked: "The weirdest thing for me is that I'm wearing the exactly the same underwear."

"You're owning the underwear and you're a very talented magician," added Amanda Holden.

With four yeses, Sora made it through to the next round.

Other acts hoping for yeses this evening were cake eating opera singer Sarah Llewellyn, Ben Langley and his misheard lyrics and comedy musician Micky P Kerr.

As always, acts needed three or more yeses to make it through to the next round - and potentially on to the live shows.

Making up the judging panel this year once more are Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.

There's also the golden buzzer, which will send acts straight through to the semi-finals. After five weeks, only Amanda Holden has yet to press the button.

However they get through, just one act will walk away with £250,000 and a spot on the Royal Variety Performance.

Meanwhile, hosts Ant and Dec will be present for the auditions, watching on from the sidelines with a comforting hug whatever the result.

Britain’s Got Talent continues Saturday nights on ITV.

Plus, More Talent airs straight after the main show on ITV2.
