Britain’s Got Talent judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams sent through six acts in last night’s episode of the ITV talent show.
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly also sent through dancer Akshat Singh, who performed a dance mash-up of a Bollywood track and Nicki Minaj’s Starships, by pressing the golden buzzer.
The 13-year-old wowed the judges and the audience and received praise from all judges before the Geordie due ran onto stage to send the dancer into the semi-finals.
Speaking about his performance, judge David said: "I wish I was 13 and watching you up there on the stage, you would have made me feel like I could achieve absolutely anything."
The other acts that were sent through included jive dancers and market traders Margaret and Dave, throat singer Jayson Stiwell and comedian Barbara Nice.
However, a number of those watching at home were not happy with the judges choices and took to Twitter to complain that they had watched one of the worst episodes of Britain’s Got Talent ever.
One said: “Is it me￼￼ or has BGT got worse my god tonight was the worse I seen we think we have talent but in reality we not.”(sic)
Another said: “Is this one of the worse nights ever? #bgt,” and a third commented: “This has been the worse #BGT￼ so far. When are we getting some talent?”
A fourth wrote: “Probably the best act so far tonight but that’s no endorsement as this is the worse BGT I’ve ever seen AND sorry buy no way is he worth the golden buzzer.”
“For the first time in Britain’s got talent history I’m switching it off before it’s finished, worst episode I’ve ever watched and full of absolute shite #BGT,” remarked a fifth.
