A Sheffield teenager who wowed the judges on Britain's Got Talent will be one of the first to perform live in the show's semi-finals.

Kyle Tomlinson, aged 15, who was once told by judge David Walliams to 'go and get singing lessons' three years ago, returned to the stage with his amazing rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.

The audition impressed the judges so much, Walliams hit the golden buzzer sending teen star Tomlinson straight through to the live shows.

The Ecclesfield School pupil is 10/1 with the bookies to win the show.

Also performing tonight are magic act DNA, St. Patrick’s Junior Choir Drumgreenagh, PC Dan, Niels Harder, Empire Dance Crew, knife throwers Tyrone & Mina and Miss Treat Vibe.

In a twist, the judges will have no say about which second act goes through to the grand final on Sunday but they will be able to select one wildcard act each.

As well as the 35 acts put through by the judges in Saturday night's show, the other four golden buzzer acts will return after automatically qualifying for the semi-finals.

Simon Cowell backed teen singer Sarah Ikumu for his golden act and Alesha Dixon handed five-piece dance group Just Us, whose lead member battles with the spinal condition scoliosis, their golden moment.

Malawian comic Daliso Chaponda was put through by Amanda Holden.

The show's presenters Ant & Dec used their golden buzzer vote send entertainer Matt Edwards straight through to the live shows.

The final 40 will compete will be whittled down for the grand final later this week with the winner taking home £250,000 and a slot to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.

Britain's Got Talent is on ITV tonight at 7.30pm.
