A group of Welsh singers wowed judges on Britain’s Got Talent last night, as they took on some West End favourites.

A Welsh singing collective made up of West End performers, named Welsh of the West End, won over the audiences and judges with their emotional rendition of From Now On from 2017’s The Greatest Showman.

The group revealed they came together online during lockdown when the theatre industry closed its curtains and that the audition was their first time all meeting as a group.

Walliams remarked that “the Welsh are always incredible singers” as they sailed through to the next round.

 

Elsewhere in the show, acrobatic group Trio Vertex left the judges on the edge of their seats as they performed their suspenseful routine.

The audition saw the female acrobat Isis perform on a trapeze with her fellow acrobat Cornelius before being thrown from the air into the arms of the third performer Nathan on the ground, securing them the four yeses.

Ahead of their performance, it was revealed that the group were romantically entangled as Isis had previously dated Nathan and was currently in a relationship with Cornelius, which Dixon admitted made her enjoy the performance more.

The show also featured weird and wonderful performers including concert pianist Mitchell Zeidwif, 67, whose musical number turned into a comedy routine as his music stand collapsed to the floor and the piano top closed on his body, leaving the audience in fits of laughter.

Liberty Barros, 14, left everyone speechless with her contortionist abilities which saw her fold in half and fit inside a small box.

Dixon also had her Golden Moment during the programme when she went to surprise seven-year-old Skylar Blu at her dance studio to invite her to audition at the London Palladium.

The young dancer delivered an emotive contemporary routine to Footprints In The Sand by Leona Lewis which saw her perform pirouettes and split leaps.

Dixon said: “It is such a big deal at seven years old performing on this huge stage in front of all of these people.

“I can’t imagine how you’re feeling but you did so well. You’re so talented.

“And I just can’t wait to see what happens with you in your future. So I’m really happy for you Skylar.”

The ITV talent show returned to screens this year for the first time after it was cancelled in 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
