Those taking to the stage included Sophie Evans, Luke McCall, Jade Davies, Glain Rhys, Siwan Henderson, Rhidian Marc, Mared Williams, Tom Hier and Samantha Thomas.

For their live semi-final performance, the group belted out You Will Be Found from Dear Evan Hansen with added parts in Welsh.

Amanda said it was a “flawless and beautiful” performance while Simon described the group as “fantastic”.

The group ultimately placed Top 3 in the public vote but unfortunately didn’t make it into the final.
