Britain's Got Talent: K-Pop band Blitzers perform in the semis

Britain's Got Talent act Blitzers sparked a social media divide when they took to the stage. The South Korean artists previously shared that they are already famous across the pond - having released five singles and winning awards after they formed in 2021. In the same year, they won the Focus Award at the Asia Artist Awards and in 2022 they got the Rising Star gong at the K-Global Heart Dream Awards.

It comes as viewers tuned into the second instalment of Tuesday evening's semi-final as Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli returned to the judging panel.

The boy band showcased their incredible vocals and impressive dance moves but caused a social media stir among viewers.

Fans flocked to X, formerly Twitter, as some questioned if the band had been singing live during their routine and accused them of "miming".

@AmyIsHeRe commented: "Nothing good about miming a song #BritainsGotTalent

@Johnny_B5: "#BritainsGotTalent Another miming group..doh," while @BlueFozzie45 shared: "K pop singing live ? Yeh ok #BritainsGotTalent."

@TuckfieldMark remarked: "Pretty damn good act but were they singing live? @bgt #BritainsGotTalent."

@tomwhujones added: "All that jumping around and their voices didn’t change one bit, it’s almost as if they were miming #BritainsGotTalent."

Another disgruntled viewer fumed: "Miming... switching off!"

However others rushed to defend the band as @wyfiillusion penned: "Couldn't be more proud of you boys!! good job todayy you all did amazing!!!"

@ars_png blitzers tweeted: "on bgt semifinal. My boys slayed! and to everyone who's judging them because "they're not singing live"... y'all never went to their concert did y'all mhm..clearly #blitzers #bgt."


@hxwalix hit back: "TF do you mean Blitzers lipsynced, you can literally hear the chains and jewlery they're wearing."(sic)

@st1llm0nst3r added: "These people have clearly never seen any form of live performance, it’s clear when people are lip syncing, and they were so obviously live singing, they did great."

BGT judge Alesha gushed over the K-pop band and said they already have a strong "fanbase" while Amanda agreed they appeared "box ready".

Britain's Got Talent continues tomorrow night at 8pm on ITV1 and ITVX
