'Britain's Got Talent' pop-classical act 'The Arrangement' have been praised by Beyonce Knowles, after she watched the group's 'If I Were A Boy' audition and called them ''hilarious'' and ''talented''
'Britain's Got Talent' pop-classical act 'The Arrangement' have been backed by Beyonce Knowles.
The singers - who will be competing in tonight (02.06.10)'s semi-final on the ITV1 show - impressed the judges with their rendition of the pop star's single 'If I Were A Boy' in their first audition, and have since been backed by Beyonce herself.
The former Destiny's Child star said: "I just saw the YouTube video of 'The Arrangement' at the weekend, and I have to say I absolutely loved it!
"I thought they were hilarious, at the same time as being very talented. They have my backing.
"I loved the lead singer. He was adorable. He had so much charisma. He handled himself like a star."
Lead singer Jono Miles, 18, was thrilled with the compliment.
He told The Sun newspaper: "It's great that Beyonce herself has endorsed it. I feel a lot more confident now."
Another of tonight's competitors to have gained a celebrity fanbase is ten-year-old singer Chloe Hickinbottom - who has been praised by Peter Andre.
She said: "I heard Peter Andre said I was one of his favourite acts. Maybe we could do a duet."
Also competing for a place in this evening's semi-final is Madonna impersonator Philip Grimmer, dancing act Starburst, singer Christopher Stone, dance troupe Peridot, comic Paul Burling and Irish charmer Jimmy Ford.
