The final round of the Britain's Got Talent semi-finals kicked off on Friday (May 31) and one finalist was involved in an awkward blunder when he revealed Alesha Dixon's 'secret' live on air.

The remaining acts took to the stage to perform in front of judges Bruno Tonioli, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell in a bid to win a spot in Sunday's grand finale (June 2). Amongst the performers was magician Trixy who performed his impressive tricks live on stage.

As part of his act, he got both the audience and judges involved. He borrowed Amanda Holden's phone, as well as asking Bruno Tonioli and Simon Cowell for their input. But before he went to chat to Alesha Dixon, Trixy slipped up.

Popstar Alesha was due to take to the stage for a 'live' performance of her latest single as a special guest star for the last semi-final of the week. But despite viewers yet to see her performance, Trixy appeared to let slip that it was pre-recorded.

Before carrying on with his act, the magician asked Alesha how she was before saying "Alesha, loved the performance by the way", to which she laughed and awkwardly replied: "Thank you.". And Trixy's comment didn't go unnoticed by fans who were quick to point out the error on X, formerly Twitter.

@_DundeePerfect_ said: "There was me thinking Trixy was a time traveller when he congratulated Alesha on her performance but then the time Amanda goes to sleep was too random a number to be random. Show looks to be like the critics say, not Live."

@RyanTheSoapking wrote: "Trixy literally exposed that Alesha's performance wasn't LIVE but they still act like it was anyway," as @Trillo7359 said: "Trixy in the final for revealing "nice performance alesha" before she had even performed on the TV #bgt #britainsgottalent."

@DaiRich81 also said: "Alesha not in her seat like it’s live when Trixy already said he’d seen it #bgt," as @dean_barney_ joked: "Alesha prepping for her ‘live’ performance now! Hope Trixy likes it."

Another fan of the show @LewisJ815 wrote: "Obsessed with Trixy outing Alesha for pre-recording her “live” performance #BGT," as @Phillips1Luke echoed: "Trixy accidentally dropping it in that Alesha’s performance is pre-recorded #BGT."
