    As Simon introduced the unusual act and asked him why he was auditioning, Darth Vader completed snubbed him which left the audience aghast.

    Failing to speak, Simon still wished the person behind the costume "good luck" before he sat down at the keyboard.

    Magically removing a cloth that covered the keyboard with "the force", Darth Vader then sat down and proceeded to demonstrate his talent.

    Playing an upbeat and bouncy tune, the audience laughed and Amanda Holden said: "Welcome back, 2023."

    Amanda buzzed the act first, followed by Alesha Dixon, and then Bruno Tonioli.

    Simon didn't want to buzz the act though, despite being snubbed by them earlier.

    Giving in and buzzing after the audience called for an "encore", Simon said: "I really thought this was going to be a great year," sounding a little defeated.

    After the judges went through their reasons for not voting the act through to the next round, the act walked off without saying a word.

    This comes after fellow judge Amanda Holden exclaimed that she has "never seen so many body parts used for entertainment" when speaking about the new series.

    Sitting down with Daily Star and other press ahead of the first episode of the 16th series launching, the 52-year-old blonde bombshell was asked to sum up the series in a few words.

    "I have never seen so many body parts used for entertainment in 16 years," she revealed on April 13.

    Simon, who summed the series up with the word "joy", then chimed in with: "Good point."

    Britain’s Got Talent launches on Saturday 15th April, 20:00 and continues on Sunday 16th April, 19:45 on ITV1 and ITVX.
