Britain’s Got Talent viewers think they’ve put a pause on how The Phantom managed to pull off a bunch of tricks this weekend, as they fooled the judges

Britain’s Got Talent viewers were left awestruck and “shaken” by a performance on the show this weekend, as others quickly predicted it was a familiar face on the team in disguise.
But some viewers weren’t very impressed, and some even believed they had solved the case.
Judge Amanda Holden stood in the middle of the stage as she was hypnotized by an ‘invisible’ person who wreaked havoc on the stage.
There’s an incredible moment when the balloon she’s been holding randomly explodes, before Amanda manages to find out what co-judge Alesha Dixon has in her hand.
Amanda was also asked to choose an item from a “lost property box” that she hid under a cloth upon request.
At the iconic London Palladium, the Phantom forces Alesha to choose an item from the same box, a dummy, which Amanda soon guessed right because that seemed to be the first thing that popped into her head.
Amanda was also asked to place one piece of chalk on the board at a time, and The Phantom then wrote the word ‘key’ on the board, seemingly without any assistance.
It wasn’t until she lifted the cloth later that she revealed to everyone that she had taken some keys out of the box in the first place – but the act was quickly debunked.

David Walliams realizes the key in Amanda’s hand is his, with an on-screen video appearing to show an unseen person entering his dressing room and stealing the key from a table.
The judges and viewers were completely baffled by the entire action and how it was achieved, but some of the keen-eyed spectators believed that they did an excellent job.
Some fans believe that the chalk is magnetically connected to the board and this is how the text is written – while for the item box, viewers thought that Amanda would see the dummy in it when she picked the key.
One viewer tweeted: “Chalk is a magnet,” as another said: “It would be more believable if the chalk left the board between the letters.”
A third viewer commented, “If we see it back, it looks like the keys were written on the board before the ghost did it”, as another fan suggested: “That’s obvious. apparently staged with a pre-recorded audience reaction because of the writing on the chalkboard. definitely vfx.”
Others noticed that the chalk seemed to move from where Amanda left it, with one tweeting: “Are we ignoring that the chalk started in the middle of the board and then suddenly on the top left?”
Another fan commented: “What a pile of rubbish that the chalk moved from the center to the board without making a mark. And how could she pull out a bunch of huge keys.”
Meanwhile, other viewers are more worried about someone being able to steal David’s keys without him even realizing they’re gone.
One comment said: “A bit of a security issue if someone takes Davids’ keys from his locker room.”
