Sheffield busker Maxwell won the hearts of the nation during the BGT auditions, and he didn’t disappoint during Monday’s semi-finals.

As soon as he closed the show, all four judges gave him a standing ovation, as did the entire audience packed into the Hammersmith Apollo, with David stating that he should have been ‘given a golden buzzer.’

Considering his performances so far have been mesmerising, we know Sunday’s final will be one to remember.
