ZANY Steven Hall is urging people to vote for him after he performs in front of millions of TV viewers on Britain’s Got Talent tonight.

The 53-year-old telecommunications engineer will represent Cumbria when he takes to the stage for the live semi-final with a new dance routine.

Having taken the nation by storm with his eclectic two-minute act, which saw him perform a dance to The Birdy Song, The Macarena and The Twist, he has become an overnight success.

He has gained more than 1.5 million views on YouTube and more than a thousand fans on his official Facebook site.

So, what has he got lined up for the biggest performances of his life tonight?

“It was said: ‘How am I going to follow that?’ Because the element of surprise has gone,” he said.

“So I have taken what everybody said they would expect me to do next and not done it.”

Life has changed for the Burneside Amateur Theatrical Society member since he gained three ‘yes’ votes from Amanda Holden, Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff, and a standing ovation from the Liverpool crowd.

“It was the second best experience of my life, but I can’t tell you the first one,” he jokes.

“Since then, it has been so busy I haven’t had time to think about it.

"I have been to London several times for interviews and rehearsals.”

Having performed in theatres across the Lake District, Steven set up Comedy Showtime two years ago, a five-person act that puts on performances across the region.

From this, a 10-minute dance evolved which came to form the basis of his BGT audition.

If Steven is successful tonight, he will make it through to Saturday’s live final.

If victorious in the final, he will perform in front of The Queen at The Royal Variety Performance and win £100,000.

“I am nervous and confident about tonight,” he said.

“Nervous because Simon Cowell is back on the show and he is held in such anticipation about what he has thought of the acts that have gone through while he’s been away.

"But I am confident of my routine. I’m looking forward to it.”
