The act includes 41-year-old Sergeant Vince Fountain and 31-year-old Corporal Lee Day, who were clearly nervous when they took to the BGT stage tonight.
Declan Donnelly introduced the friends, saying: “Tonight we start with two hunky fellas who had a very shaky start to the auditions.”
Ant McPartlin chipped in: “Yep, they can’t quite believe they’ve made it to the semi-finals and they’re desperately hoping that if tonight goes well, they’ll be back here next week.”
His partner in crime wrapped it up and said: “That’s enough about us two, the first act tonight is Soldiers of Swing.”
Speaking to the camera, Lee told viewers: “I’m Corporal Lee Day, we are the Soldiers of Swing, we’re swingers.”
He soon realised his error and stuttered: “Err swingers? Easy.”
The comment entertained viewers who rushed to Twitter and shared their reactions.
Solders of Swing will go head to head with seven other acts in the last of the semi-finals tonight.
One act will be voted through with the others’ fate in the hands of the public as they bid for a £250,000 cash prize and a spot on the bill at the Royal Variety Performance.
