Malakai Bayoh has moved the Britain’s Got Talent judges and the public to tears with his powerful voice.
The young singer stole the show with his tear-jerking performance with his incredible audition, which saw judge Bruno Tonioli crying and Simon Cowell pressing the Golden buzzer.
‘One of the best voices I think I’ve ever heard,’ Simon said.
Amanda Holden added: ‘That was a stunning performance. Totally flawless and very composed.’
Ahead of this year’s final, let’s refresh our memory on who Malakai is…

He may possess impressive vocal chords, but Malakai is only 13-years-old.
This makes him one of the youngest finalists, with only some members of Ghetto kids younger than him (the group ranges from ages 5-13).
The youngsters have dominated series 16 of BGT, with Musa, Ghetto Kids, Lillianna Clifton, Olivia Lyons, and Cillian O’Connor also all making it to the grand final.

The family later settled in London.
What did Malakai Bayoh sing in the semi-final?
The teen proved why he made it to the BGT final after receiving a standing ovation with his version of O Mio Babbino Caro.
Malakai’s operatic talents came to prominence last November when he made his solo debut at London’s Royal Opera House.
He sang the role of Oberto in the opera Alcina by Baroque composer George Frideric Handel.
Welsh singer and radio personality Aled Jones joined Malakai for two seasonal duets sung in St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden: ‘O Holy Night’ and ‘Walking in the Air’.
Britain’s Got Talent returns tonight at 8pm on ITV.
