It's normally younger ladies who catch Simon Cowell's eye, but this week on Britain's Got Talent it's an older woman who gets the music mogul's attention.

The TV judge was left impressed when the pensioner brought her group of OAP singers The Zimmers on to the BGT stage to try their luck on the show.

Simon was taken aback when the 15-strong group, who are all aged between 66 and 88, performed their own unique rendition of Beastie Boys' classic (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (to Party!)

OAP singers: The Zimmers, all aged between 66 and 88, take to the BGT stage tonight to sing a rendition of Beastie Boys' (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right to Party

And fight for their right they did, as they all stood on the stage in their trousers and coats to impress Simon, along with other judges Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.

But it was one particular singer who stood out to grab Simon's attention.

He told Londoner Grace Cooke, who is the oldest member of The Zimmers: 'You on the right, you're a little tiger aren't you'

But while the group are set to be one of the stand out acts on tonight's show, the judges are in for some less impressive treats.

Dance troupes normally do well on the programme, but York dancers Twisted Disco failed to win over Cowell.

He told them they were 'like eight Jodie Marshs on a normal day out shopping'.

But as usual the panel have a number of different acts turning up to the auditions, including violinist Analiza Ching and 16-year-old Ashleigh Butler, who brings her dancing dog Pudsey on stage.

And funnyman David Walliams was left particularly impressed with singer Chelsea Redfern, who made it to boot camp in last year's The X Factor.

The 18-year-old sang a version of Prince's Purple Rain and her rendition moved David so much he told her that she could be a 'superstar'.

Simon added: 'Not only do you sound like a pop star, you look like a pop star'.
