Britain's Got Talent judges surprised by singing statues

Big Name Statues

A group of singing statues caught the Britin's Got Talent judges by surprise this weekend.

Britain's Got Talent auditions were back on ITV tonight with more acts hoping to make it through to the live semi-finals.

Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon took up their seats behind the judges' desk with Ant and Dec backstage.

One of the acts hoping to make the cut were Big Name Statues.

The 'statues' appeared on stage behind a theatre-style safety curtain, before coming to life and singing a cover of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

The statues then returned to their stationary starting positions as the panel delivered their comments.

"It was extraordinary," commented David. "We always say we want to be surprised on this show and statues coming to life singing Bohemian Rhapsody that counts as being very surprised.

Simon added: "I love seeing things I've never seen before. I don't know who came up with it but it works."

With four yeses, the unique group of performers made it through to the next round.

Other acts through to the next round this weekend were mysterious magicians Brotherhood after they shocked the panel with sword stunt and 71-year-old musician Russell T Bird who rocked out with his keytar, once he finally got it working.

We also met female dance group Khronos Girls from Croydon who sent out an important message about women's rights with their routine and magician Ben Hart from London who got the audience involved in his tricks.

Britain's Got Talent 2019 continues Saturday nights on ITV at 8PM.

More Talent follows on ITV2 with Stephen Mulhern.

Following the auditions, the live semi-finals will air later this year.
