Moments after the final note been belted out there were complaints that the franchise was getting inspiration from across the pond. appeared before the judges dressed as characters from Hugh Jackman’s hit musical The Greatest Showman.

Each of the four singers had a camera placed in front of their faces which then projected images onto a big screen behind them.

Though all wasn’t as it seemed, as the judges – Simon, Brunot Tonioli, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon – were shocked to see themselves staring back at them.

The clever deepfake tech went down a treat in the Palladium, a year after a virtual cat called Noodle stunned viewers.

However, some recognised the tech from elsewhere.

A third said: “Well this was on America Got Talent 2 years ago.”

One of their memorable performances saw singer Daniel belt out a rousing You’re The Inspiration while the tech mocked him up as Simon.
