SINGING 'angel' Oscar Williams from East Lancashire missed out on a place in the Britain's Got Talent final.

The 12-year-old, from Colne, was one of five members of boy band 'Bring It North' who performed on tonight's live semi-final show.

The group performed 'A Million Dreams' from the Greatest Showman production in front of a night-time cityscape and wowed the audience immediately.

Micky P Kerr and the Giang Brothers took the last two spots and will compete in Sunday's live final.

After their performance, the judges gave positive remarks to the former student of Laneshaw Bridge Primary School's group.

David Walliams said: "What I love about you guys is you're a boy band, a brilliant boy band, very wholesome.

"This was wonderful, exactly right for your age. It was a beautiful song, you are five angels, and if I was Simon Cowell I would sign you up tonight."

Alesha Dixon said: You did a great job, when you went up in the air they (the crowd) went crazy,

Amanda Holden said: "I absolutely love that song and my children sing it.

"My heart soared, you did a great, great job, well done guys."

Simon Cowell said: "This was a whole different proposition from when I first saw you.

"I didn't feel a 12-year-old boy band would work, this song was absolutely age appropriate, perfect for you.

"You're not ready yet for a recording contract, I wouldn't put you through that.

"Its prep for where you could be.

"These five guys could end up in a big show in the West End,which is perfect for you.

"This is not about immediate moment this is about creating something, it can go up from here.

"You made the one million per cent the right decision, I was impressed by that."

In their pre-performance interview the boys said they wanted to buy a big mansion for them to live in if they won, and had also received a lot of attention from female fans.
