McFly have dedicated their performance on Britain’s Got Talent to NHS staff working on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic.
The boy band – Harry Judd, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher – performed their 2005 hit All About You as well as new song Happiness during the second semi-final on Saturday.
McFly, who are releasing their first new album together in 10 years, were joined on stage by The NHS Choir.
Before starting on their new single, Jones said: “On behalf of our entire country, thank you so much to our incredible NHS.”
Following the performance, Judd added: “We just wanted to do something. We felt pretty helpless, like the rest of the nation. Obviously the NHS were doing an amazing job.”
Fans were quick to praise the group for their gesture.
