However, it wasn’t enough to make the final, with Stavros Flatley getting Simon Cowell’s golden buzzer and Preacher the audience vote.
The American funnyman was likened to stand up king and actor Eddie Murphy by judge David Walliams and had Amanda Holden in hysterics.
It was an extra special victory as he told the audience how he was homeless just three years ago and vowed never to be on the streets again.
Despite losing out fair and square, some viewers were unimpressed by the result.

Another posted: “To the studio audience that voted this average comic into the final before the Chelsea Pensioner Colin Thackery..shame on you all.”
However, others were pleased to see Preacher go through but admitted they were surprised by the result.
Meanwhile, BGT legends Stavros Flatley had viewers in stitches tonight as they mocked Simon Cowell’s pearly white teeth.
The fan favourites returned to the BGT stage having last made a cameo appearance in May, and they brought plenty of energy and fun.

After dancing their hearts out, dad Demi Demetriou couldn’t resist taking the mickey out of Simon.
The emotional performer told the crowd: “I can’t tell you how much you going mad for us makes us feel.
“But I want to say, this show is amazing. We’ve been all over the world, we’ve done things and been places we never thought we’d be, and it’s because of you guys.”
He then went for the killer gag, saying: “I’ve got to thank my dentist in Pathos! He’s amazing! I have the same teeth as Simon now, look!’
