Britain's Got Talent seconed semi-finals saw the next round of acts battling it out for a place in the final

Britain's Got Talent fans were left annoyed and disappointed with act Blitzers as they claimed the dancing and singing K-Pop group were miming through their performance.

During their audition, the group - aged between 19 and 22 - revealed they are the first ever K-pop group to appear on the ITV talent show, and blew the audience and viewers at home away.

They received four yeses from judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Bruno Tonioli and Alesha Dixon after singing their own version of Shawn Mendes’s There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.

In tonight's semi-final, Blitzers packed the show full of choreography, and vocals and intertwined the large stage and props into their performance, but whilst they impressed judges, fans at home were left less than impressed and accused the singers of being fake.

Taking to X to air their frustrations, one user asked: "Are they miming?" before one other replied: "Definitely miming."

"Got no time for this," a third stated before another added: "Miming on a 'live’ talent show?"

"K-pop band singing/miming over a backing track. Glorified karaoke. They couldn't sing so now miming," another frustrated user penned before a sixth said: "They were clearly miming especially taking into account how awful their vocals were in the audition."

However, not all viewers were left unimpressed with the performance as one praised: "Liked the song, thought they were good!" (sic)

Soon after their first audition, viewers of the ITV talent show found out that the group were already famous across the pond and had already won a multitude of awards.

The South Korean artists shared they have released five singles and won 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.

According to The Sun, a Britain's Got Talent spokesperson explained the inclusion of international acts in a statement to the Mail Online.

It reads: "Britain's Got Talent features a range of home-grown talent, alongside some overseas acts.

"It's a testament to the international success of past acts such as Susan Boyle and Paul Potts that overseas acts want to audition for the UK show."
