Magicians seem to have taken Britains Got Talent by storm this year. After the success of Richard Jones last year, many magicians have been spurred on to audition.

Last night, Matt Edwards took to the stage with his wacky, comical performance of the salt pour, to the music “Tequila”. The judges confessed they really didn’t know where the performance was going to begin with, but Matt soon had them and the audience captivated by his endearing audition.

So much so, that just after Simon queried why Matt hadn’t had his big break sooner, Ant and Dec appeared from the wings, and walked over to the judge’s table to hit the golden buzzer, which puts Matt straight through to the live quarter-finals.

If you missed it, you can watch his BGT performance below.
