Britain's Got Talent 2019: Five unmissable auditions from episode seven including a Grenfell Tower survivor

While tonight may have been all about Eurovision, ITV reminded us how much talent we have here in the UK with another round of auditions.

Britain's Got Talent continued with a jam-packed show, featuring the good, the bad and the downright weird.

From pole dancing singers to a man on a mission to get everyone up dancing, there was something for everyone.

Here are five unmissable auditions from episode seven…

Dancers: Libby and Charlie (Syco / Thames)

Truro Cathedral

The choristers, from Cornwall, gave a stunning rendition of Can You Feel The Love Tonight? which David Williams described as “absolutely stunning” as they finished.

Their simple and elegant performance wowed the judges into giving the first full house of the night, sending them through to the next round.

Mind2Mind

James and Marina, who are boyfriend and girlfriend, took their day job as illusionists to the BGT stage. They soon called about Ant and Dec for help - mainly to blindfold Marina - before sauntering down to get the judges involved.

After successfully naming the contests of Amanda Holden’s bag while being blindfolded, Marina called on her again to demonstrate some more mind-reading and telepathy with Simon Cowell.

A standing ovation and four yeses. Cowell completely baffled by the trick.

Jacob Jones

The barber instructor got off to a nervy start with his rendition of You Are So Beautiful To Me, sung to his girlfriend Faye. In fact, he was so shaky that Cowell stopped the performance to ask him to sing “as himself” without the backing track.

From there, it was pitch perfect. But four yeses weren’t enough for Jacob, with the Surrey-native hoping for one more to make his day complete.

Libby and Charlie

The adorable best friends, both 11, poured all their emotion and talent into a powerful dance routine to Christina Perry’s A Thousand Years.

Their faultless efforts earned them four yeses, and a heap of praise from the judges - even Cowell who “doesn’t love this type of dancing” usually.

Leanne Mya

Nervous Leanne took to the stage to sing for the first time in front of a large audience, wanting to show her toddler son to “conquer his fears”. The past 19 months, Leanne explained, had been a dark time for her - soon explaining that she had lived in Grenfell Tower.

The 31-year-old’s emotional performance of Sam Smith’s Lay Me Down was earned her four yeses.
