Britain's Got Talent 2012 - The Mend

Boy group The Mend will be appearing on tonight's Britain's Got Talent 2012 first live show, replacing the Sugar Dandies.

The ballroom dancing pair were originally set to appear on tonight's first semi-final but will now perform later on in the week.

Writing on twitter last night, [cat]The Mend[/cat] said: "Tune in tomorrow for live semi finals!! Biggest show of our lives!! #VoteTheMend #FamilyMenders"

They'll be performing alongside favourite [tag]Ashleigh and Pudsey[/tag] as well as dance troupe United We Stand, after the Britain's Got Talent 2012 semi-finalists were revealed yesterday.

Also amongst the first batch of hopefuls to perform live are 11-year-old singer [tag]Lauren Thalia[/tag] and raunchy violinist [tag]Analiza Ching[/tag].
