Belfast couple and their Beyonce song stole the show on Britain's Got Talent
Ian Marshall, 64, and his wife Anne, 61, put their own spin on Crazy In Love by Beyonce.
The duo enthralled David and fellow judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden with their unconventional performance.
After David hit the Golden Buzzer, which gives the couple an automatic place in the live shows, he headed to the stage.
“I think you really are the spirit of Britain’s Got Talent, the pair of you,” he told them.
“You spend your whole lives doing something else, you’ve got this beautiful relationship and you did a Beyonce song for no apparent reason.”
Simon said: “I just knew David was going to do that, but actually, for once, I get it.”
The couple, who met while serving in the army and have now been married for 44 years, said the Beyonce hit sums up how they feel about each other.
“We’ve come to Britain’s Got Talent to win it, obviously,” the 64-year-old said before their audition.
The stakes are high as the 2016 winner will receive a cash prize of £250,000 and a slot on the Royal Variety Performance.
Earlier in the ITV show, Presentation School Choir’s choral director Veronica McCarron appeared to catch Simon’s eye.
