Britain's Got Talent 2019: Young singer Kerr James stuns judges with surprise voice

Kerr James.

Kerr James took the Britain's Got Talent 2019 judges by surprise with his voice this weekend.

This Saturday night saw the latest episode of auditions with another set of contestants going before the judges.

Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Simon Cowell return to the panel while Ant and Dec are back watching on from the sidelines.

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

One of those hoping to make it through is young singer Kerr James.

Alesha encouraged him before his audition: "We are with you, we wish you the best of luck, go for it!"

Kerr performed Try a Little Tenderness by Otis Redding and his voice proved quite a surprise.

“He just becomes someone else!” reacted Ant & Dec from the sidelines to his smooth singing.

The judges were just as impressed, as Kerr sailed through to the next round with four yeses.

David said: "It was great! You were a great performer as well."

Amanda added: "Your whole body was in that song, that was an amazing performance."

Simon praised: "You came out with this energy and optimism. You're really good when you're different and you stand out."

More contestants on Britain's Got Talent 2019 this week include Sheila Simmonds who provides a catchy ditty - but will the Judges love or hate the comedy songstress?

Plus there was stand up comic Kojo Anim who tried to win his way through to the next round with a series of jokes.

More acts we met were mini-bus driver and part-time singing ventriloquist Greg, hobby horse performer VJ Clarke and electronic accordionist Igor Outkine.

Mysterious act X freaks out Ant and Dec as he got them involved in a mind reading magic trick while Jonathan Goodwin shcoked in a very different way, attempting to free himself from a straightjacket while on fire.

Britain’s Got Talent 2019 continues Saturday nights on ITV.

Alongside the main show, straight after you can tune in to Britain’s Got More Talent on ITV2 with Stephen Mulhern.

The Britain's Got Talent live shows begin later on in the year.
