Britain’s Got Talent act Lioz Shem Tov has previously performed for judge Simon Cowell on America’s Got Talent, as well as appearing on the Australian spin-off too.

Viewers were in stitches tonight as mentalist Lioz engaged in a comedic act, roping in Amanda Holden for a very tongue-in-cheek performance as the perhaps the worst illusionist we’ve ever seen.

Even during the performance, Simon seemed to recognise the man stood before and commented, ‘I think he’s performed for me in America.’

And, in actual fact, he has.

Lioz performed for the judges on both America’s Got Talent and Australia’s Got Talent in 2018 and 2019 respectively.

He even made it to the live finals of the Aussie spin-off the show, so we know he’s certainly got the goods to go far in the competition.

Impressing everyone with his hilarious act, Lioz got four yeses from David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, Simon and a very confused Amanda, who was holding a pink bag with a banana peel at the time. Very glam.

Elsewhere on tonight’s show, viewers were enthralled as an underwater escape act very nearly drowned in a death-defying stunt.

Christopher Weber was submerged underwater for over four minutes as David Walliams attempted to help free him, choosing multiple wrong keys to un-pick a lock.

Christopher and his assistant Hans thankfully survived, and got four yeses to proceed to the next round – but some fans were catching their breath after the shocking scenes

‘That was bloody close,’ one commented and we have to agree.

A 10-year old singer also blew the audience both at home in the show away after she brought down the house with a rousing Greatest Showman cover.

Britain’s Got Talent continues next Saturday at 8pm on ITV.

It’s been confirmed that next week’s episode of Britain’s Got Talent will be the final auditions to air this year.

Taking to Twitter, the official account for the ITV reality show announced that next Saturday, viewers will watch the last round of auditions.

During the process so far, we’ve accumulated the Golden Buzzer acts for all four judges David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, Simon Cowell as well as hosts Ant and Dec.

‘Britain’s Got Talent will be back again next Saturday for our last lot of auditions,’ the account said.

The ITV reality show was meant to start airing the live shows this month, but plans have been pushed back to the autumn thanks to the coronavirus crisis.

Judge David Walliams previously said that he hoped viewers would ‘forgive’ the show for pushing back the live finals.

Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning, the Little Britain star admitted that the delay is a ‘complication’ for the team.

‘The complication we have is we would normally be doing the live shows in May at the Hammersmith Apollo,’ David said.

‘There will be a gap, but hopefully people will forgive us.’

ITV have previously stated that they have been working out the details on when the BGT live shows can go forward, due to the effects of Covid-19.

The channel has already decided to postpone the live semi-final and final of The Voice.

Britain’s Got Talent continues next Saturday at 7pm on ITV.

Britain’s Got Talent act plays surprisingly good tunes using a straw

Just when you think you’ve seen everything on Britain’s Got Talent, something new comes along to surprise you – like a man playing songs on drinking straws. 

Hasan Minawi, a 48-year-old music teacher by day, surprised the audience when the instrument he brought along to play was a series of plastic straws. 

The contestant pulled out a drinking straw with several holes cut into it, baffling the audience with what he was about to do. 

While it clearly would make for a terrible implement for drinking with, a straw with several holes can apparently make some surprisingly tuneful sounds. 

Hasan kicked off his performance by playing My Heart Will Go On from Titanic through the modified straw to laughter from the audience. 

The judges weren’t quite sure what the tiny instrument Hasan had produced from his pocket was, so hosts Ant and Dec had to go on stage to verify that the incredible sounds were being made on a straw.

Proving he’d fashioned some impressive instruments from the straws, Hasan then segued into a bagpipe medley of Scotland The Brave with three more straws in the side of his mouth.

A spirited rendition of La Bamba had the crowds dancing along with him before he finally took his bow in front of the audience. 

David Walliams told him: ‘Hasan, well done. How long have you been playing the straw?’

What will Simon Cowell think of the performance? (Picture: Dymond/Thames/Syco/REX)

Simon Cowell dissolved into giggles as he said: ‘This is something we weren’t expecting or have seen before!’

But will the judges think playing the straw is an impressive enough talent to perform in front of royalty and put him through, or is it too much of a gimmick to get Hasan through to the live finals?

Britain’s Got Talent airs on Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
