The Immortals, who are originally from Barcelona, performed an urban routine to while dressed as vampires.
The group had masks over their faces, and left the judges and audience squirming in their seats when their audition was filmed at the start of the year.
But the performance took on a whole new meaning when it aired tonight, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic – with the public urged to wear masks to prevent the spread of germs.
Taking to Twitter, one disturbed fan wrote: "Well that group were a bit creepy, immortals in face masks??!! Coincidence or??!!"
Another added: "That dance act knew coronavirus as going to happen in a couple of months".
A third commented: "Good to see that the #immortals were ahead of the UK government when it came to coronavirus."
The judges all heaped praise on the act after their performance, with Simon Cowell bizarrely claiming that some of the members' scary facial expressions reminded him of his five-year-old son Eric.
He quipped: "I loved it, the only criticism I had was that a couple of you, rather than looking scary, made the kind of faces my son Eric makes at me."
Co-star David Walliams replied in shock: "This act reminds you of your five-year-old son?
"Have you seen the film the Omen?"
Coronavirus has caused devastation across the world, and the UK's TV shows have been ground to a halt due to social distancing and government guidelines in place as a response to the contagious illness.
Britain's Got Talent have been able to air their audition episodes as planned because they were pre-recorded, but it is not yet known what will happen with the series' live shows.
It is thought that the semi-finals will not air until much later in the year, and bosses may even be forced to forgo the studio audience for the first time ever.
