GET CAPTAIN TOM MOORE A KNIGHT – CLICK HERE NOW
Last weekend hosted more daring acts such as the Magic Marine and Jack Price, who took a breathtaking motorcycle ride.
The theme of danger resurfaced tonight in the form of Kevin, a scientist with a few tricks up his sleeve.
The 39-year-old Scotsman warned before his performance that his act would be risky and soon explained why.

He said: “Today is an act that is really exciting, really scary, there is a huge risk but I hope science will get me through. “
Speaking to Ant and Dec before going on stage, he explained: “It’s an act that I made, it’s dangerous, it has never been seen before a live audience before.
“It’s not sure, it’s not smart. In the end, it’s a scientific experiment, you know, scientists call them experiments for a reason because they are bad.
Kevin introduced himself and his act to the panel, revealing that his act was also his day job before it started.
He said, “I think we can all agree that magic can be really beautiful but my other passion in life is physics, I have been a scientist for many years. Today, I want to show you how science can be as beautiful as magic – and as dangerous. “
He unveiled a model of his “favorite desk toy”, a harmonic pendulum, before telling the panel what was going to happen: “I realized, by observing the patterns, again and again, they seemed to repeat themselves, they were exactly the same every time.
“In theory, an object could travel from one side of the pendulum to the other without being hit,” he said, before going back on stage to a much larger version.
The heavy pendulum balls were set on fire and Kevin also added another element of danger as he was blindfolded.
Much to the relief of the room, he managed to cross the pendulum unscathed and was greeted with a huge reception.
However, Kevin made a shocking admission, leaving the judges stunned, admitting, “I don’t know if you noticed at first, it didn’t work. Things were happening at the wrong time. “
Unsurprisingly, Kevin got the support of the four judges and moved on to the next round – what will he plan for his next performance?
Britain’s Got Talent returns next Saturday at 8 p.m. on ITV
