Judge David Walliams said: "A comedy superstar is born tonight on that stage. So funny.  You made it all seem so effortless and you’ve got a wonderful, so likeable personality, and everything you said was brilliantly funny and original".

Blake's performance went down well with most viewers however, some were discussing if it was fair for him to receive the golden buzzer considering he is a professional and even has his own Amazon Prime show.

Many viewers complained that they were "fed up of professionals getting [the] golden buzzer'" – after professional singer Loren Allred sailed through to the next round.

"No this is a joke, he’s already got his own show and tours," one viewer tweeted.

The semi-final act proved to be another success for Axel as he even received a standing ovation from the judges.

He went on to win the sem-final and secure a place in the grand final, which can see the crowned winner take home a cash prize of £250,000 and an opportunity to perform in the Royal Variety Performance show.
