A 13-STRONG singing dance act is set to perform in the semi-final of a talent competition tomorrow in front of a live TV audience.

Thamesmead-based group Myztikal are the second act from the borough to get through to the last four stage of ITV's Britain's Got Talent.

Last week we revealed dancing duo Twist and Pulse, also known as Ashley Glazebrook, from Belvedere, and Glen Murphy, from Catford, will also appear on the live semi-finals.

If both groups go through by receiving enough votes from the public, they will perform in the grand final on Saturday.

Myztikal was formed six months ago by youth worker Marcus Donaldson, 30, with members from across Bexley and Lewisham.

After appearing at the audition in front of judges Piers Morgan, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell, they were eventually put through.

Mr Donaldson said: "We are really excited - everyone can't wait to get out on that stage.

"The audition was definitely nerve racking. It took lots of work. We put the whole routine together in just two weeks."

The performance, which consisted of street dancing, rapping and singing, started off strong but disaster struck when member Tashana Williams, 17, launched into the song Wonder Wall by Oasis and judge Simon Cowell ordered the performers to come to a halt. Mr Donaldson, who created the routine, said: "It felt like it was going wrong when it happened, she was nervous.

"I stepped forward when Simon asked whose responsibility it was because I put it together.

"None of us had done it before a live audience. We took a big chance. Given how badly it went, I didn't think we were going to get in but, when I look back at the performance, it was so good."

Mr Donaldson claimed the Oasis song was placed in the routine as they wanted to appeal to a wide audience. They have since dropped it from their routine.

l Watch the group perform on Britain's Got Talent on ITV tonight.
