Starting off the night was dance group the Urban Turtles with a mixed track and a London themed backdrop.
While judge David Walliams joked how it was "the best performance of the night so far", Alesha Dixon seemed a little less impressed.
She said: "You lost me a bit at Susan Boyle...but kids will love you."
Second to take to the stage was father and son magic act James and Dylan Piper who used family photos, including one of replacement judge Ashley Banjo and his own son.
Taken back, Ashley said: "I didn't expect that! Thank you personally but also that set the bar for this competition."
Next up was singer Imen Siar who performed You Say by Lauren Daigle which the judges all agreed was a performance she could be proud of.
