The 58-year old who often performs at Spring Harvest told the judges why he finally decided to appear on the popular talent show.
“I have thought about it and I’ve chickened out and so I got to the point this year where I thought, ‘face your fears and do it’ and so I’m here.”
He got emotional as he opened up about the toil his profession has had on his family as doing gigs takes up a lot of his time.
“I really just want to make them proud,” he said fighting back tears.
“I know it sounds corny – sorry!”
He revealed he had not brought anyone with him, as it would make him “too nervous” to perform.
For his trick, Archer asked judge David Walliams to join him on the stage and showed him a series of cards with different drinks written on them.
John received a standing ovation from all the judges and audience after pulling off a trick that had seemed destined to fail.
Britain’s Got Talent’s semi-finals will air live on ITV at 7:30pm on Monday.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
