Groove Thing, a dance troupe from Port Talbot opened the show with an impressive performance to a variety of songs from the 70s.

Following the act, judge and comedian David Walliams said there is 'so much talent' coming out of Wales this year.

Simon Cowell continued the praise adding, "I didn't think this was going to be great tonight but actually I'm wrong - you were fantastic this evening. I've got to tell you after last night, Wales is on fire at the moment."

His comments come after north Wales choir Cor Glanaethwy were sent straight through to the final in yesterday's results show.
