It’s week five of Britain’s Got Talent 2010, with some of the most memorable acts from London, Manchester and Cardiff getting their moment in the spotlight
One act at the Cardiff auditions brought along gifts for the judges – including bunny ears for Amanda and a bow tie for Piers
Simon, meanwhile, was given a pair of devil’s horns – and very fetching he looked too!
They clearly had an effect as he went on to reject Cardiff hopefuls left, right and centre – such as amateur dramatics troupe Pukka Productions
Singer songwriter Alyn James also received short shrift from the judges for his maudlin composition about a suicidal friend
However at the London auditions there was good news for teenage singer Josh Barry, who whipped the audience up into a frenzy
The 16-year-old was so pleased to have made it to the next round he thanked the judges personally
Circus performer Julia Marakova performed an acrobatic routine which left the judges gasping
And there were more acrobatics from “streetomedy” duo Twist and Pulse – whose routine features snatches of the Cheeky Girls and the EastEnders theme!
In Manchester, the Dead Fish Poets Society didn’t last very long on the stage
Dance troupe Ice fared rather better, however
The energetic performers delivered a dazzling routine which easily won them a place in the next round
Also making it through was ferry worker Mark James, who started off his act in disguise
He quickly revealed that he was paying tribute to naff 80s chart-toppers Renee and Renato – by dressing up as both of them
Finally, impressionist Paul Burling wowed the judges with his fast-paced impersonations of cartoon characters
His Harry Hill impersonation was also a hit – and the father of two won himself a place in the next round
