Parisian stuntmen wow BGT judges

It is France that has got talent when a group of stuntmen from Paris stun the judges with a martial arts routine.

The group, called Cascade, describe themselves as "a mix between human stunts and acrobatic martial arts" and impress the panel on the ITV1 talent show tonight (Saturday) with their high-energy display.

Simon Cowell tells them: "I thought it was incredible, particularly the first part. I like the whole stunt thing. It was absolutely amazing, brilliant, brilliant. And you in the middle are a star."

And the man in the middle, Alexandra, also impresses Amanda Holden who tells him he is "like a French Tom Cruise".

Other acts facing the judges are 12-year-old Lauren Thalia from Basingstoke who impresses with her version of Keri Hilson's Turn My Swag On and Essex group Loveable Rogues who turn in a confident performance.

But nerves get the better of some contestants and Simon tells medical secretary-turned-impressionist Marea Smithson she has to sort out her confidence before she can become a success.

The 38-year-old from Norfolk impressed the judges with her act, but Simon warned her: "The minute an audience feels nervous it doesn't work, so the question is whether you've got the determination going forward. Do you think you can handle this pressure?"
