It is only the third episode of Britain's Got Talent and Alesha Dixon, Bruno Tonioli and Ant and Dec have already used their golden buzzer - and Simon Cowell has now joined them. He was so impressed with a dance performance that the notoriously tough judge found himself hitting the golden buzzer.

Dressed in striking red and silver outfits Cyberagent Legit are a dance group from Japan, who have all been dancing together since they were four years old. Speaking about why they came on the show, they said: "We love Simon! That is why we are here... this is the biggest audition for us. Our dream is to perform around the world, if we won it would be amazing."

After performing a very impressive routine which saw them dance in perfect synchronisation and the audience cheering loudly, they received a standing ovation from the audience and all four judges. Amanda Holden said it was "unbelievable" and Simon said: "Amazing! That was fantastic, that was my favourite act of the day actually. Really, really, really good."
