THEY sang their hearts out in the first Britain’s Got Talent live semi-final but the evening didn’t go without a hitch.

The adorable St. Patrick’s Junior Choir Drumgreenagh were accused of miming when a pre-recorded track played briefly over their live performance – but their choirmaster has said it was a ‘technical glitch’ and the kids didn’t even notice.

Who are St. Patrick’s Junior Choir Drumgreenagh?

The choir earned a standing ovation from the Britain’s Got Talent judges and the audience for their first performance of ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ by Keane.

The 36 strong group of school students, all between 8-12 years old, all hail from a small village in County Down, Northern Ireland.

The choir is run by their local school.

Alesha Dixon absolutely loved their performance – as did the other judges. She told them: “You all sang with passion, the song is beautiful.”

Their singing really impressed and the cute kids won the chance to fight for a place in the live final on the live show.

However tonight a dampener was put on their charming performance when viewers began questioning whether their voices were being boosted by a backing track.

When can I watch them on Britain’s Got Talent?

The first live semi-final took place TONIGHT and there was plenty to look forward to.

The Junior Choir didn’t play it safe and rehash their successful first performance of Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, but instead sang a lively rendition of Katy Perry’s Roar.

What other acts are performing in the first semi-final?

The choir was up against some stiff competition in the first semi-final of Britain’s Got Talent with a golden buzzer act to keep them on their toes.

Bewitching magic act DNA had more tricks up their sleeve while David Walliams’ golden buzzer act Kyle Tomlinson sparked emotion in the judges with his flawless performance.

Also competing in the first live semi-final was PC Dan, Niels Harder, Empire Dance Crew, knife throwers Tyrone and Mina and Miss Treat Vibe.

The judges will have NO say about which second act will go through to the final on Sunday 4th June.

This will be the first time that the judges will have absolutely no say in the second act going through to the live final.

Stephen Mulhern announced the news on Saturday night’s Britain’s Got More Talent.

However the judges haven’t lost complete control over semi-finals week – Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams will be given the opportunity to select one wildcard act to go through to the final.

When are the other semi-finals and who are the acts to look out for?

The live semi-final shows are broadcast nightly from Monday May 29 to Friday June 2, starting at 7.30pm on ITV and lasting for 90 minutes.

The golden buzzer acts are some of the most anticipated performances of the series after Ant and Dec and the judges gave them a fast track to the live shows.

16 year old singer Sarah Ikumu wowed Simon Cowell with her performance of ‘And I Am Telling You’, while Kyle Tomlinson, who is competing against the Junior Choir, impressed David Walliams despite harsh criticism the last time he tried out for the show.

Dancers Merseygirls won Alesha Dixon’s golden buzzer approval after revealing one of their members was taking her last chance to dance at a high standard before an operation. Completing the golden buzzer acts are comedian Daliso Chaponda, and magician Matt Edwards, who could follow last year’s magician winner Richard Jones’ path to victory.
