Jake Slack, Tom Abisgold, Noah Key and Jacob Swann make up Chapter 13, who appeared on Britain's Got Talent in the hope of finding success as a rock band in 2019.

The four boys are all aged between 13 and 15, and aimed to impress judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon on the ITV talent show with a Stevie Wonder medley.

And impress they did, as they won Amanda Holden's Golden Buzzer to head straight to the live semi-finals.
