The 'Britain's Got Talent' judges will be wowed by a young poet and her boa constrictor on tonight's (30.04.11) show.
The panel – which this week includes Louis Walsh as a stand in for David Hasselhoff – move to London, where they are greeted by budding seven-year-old schoolgirl Olivia, who recites a poem about endangered species while wrapped in the six foot long snake, named Lucy.
Her poem includes the line: "Look at the world's most endangered animals and the poisoned dart.
"The Armur Leopards, Siberian tiger and the polar bear, they're so gorgeous, it is just not fair!"
After her performance - as hosts Ant and Dec nervously worry for Olivia's safety - judge Michael McIntyre tells her: "It was a shock for all of us with a snake on your neck. It's great you have a passion at such a young age."
Louis adds: "I think you're really, really brave to come out on stage in the first place and then to come on stage with a snake."
Elsewhere on the show the panel are impressed by 12-year-old vocalist Ronan, after s show stopping version of Nina Simone's 'Feeling Good'.
Some acts fail to hit the mark with the panel – which also includes actress Amanda Holden – however, with a bizarre tribute to both Star Wars and Michael Jackson, called Darth Dongle and the Princess confusing them. Another hopeful, Artist Anthony, is buzzed out before has act becomes X-rated after he removes his trousers to use a paintbrush.
Another dance routine - by 13 strong dance troupe The Underground Dance Company, who perform dressed as Edward Scissorhands - leaves the panel divided.
'Britain's Got Talent' is on ITV tonight (30.04.11) at 8pm.
