The final of Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions is just one week away and the final nine acts took to the stage on Saturday night to earn the final two coveted spots in the finale.
In case you missed it, here is a recap of the acts that performed as well as the results:
The comedian returned after finishing third on Series 11 of Britain’s Got Talent. Then, he earned judge Amanda Holden’s Golden Buzzer and made the final. This time, he returned confident proving he wanted to win.
He performed a hilarious set about his time after the show, dating, and Brexit. Without a doubt, he was better this time than he was in his first time on the show. Hilarious!
The dance group made their U.K. debut after being a finalist on Asia’s Got Talent in 2017. They lit up the Wembley stage with an energetic routine, which saw the guys switch to dresses at one point. It was a very high energy performance and very well done.
If you think you’ve seen this young magician before, you are correct. He was a finalist in the just-completed 13th series of the show. He returned just a few months later and performed a trick using a 20-pound note. I will be honest, I found his trick extremely boring and dated, he really stepped back about 20 paces on that one.
The sword swallower won Russia’s Got Talent in 2014 and appeared on series 10 of Britain’s Got Talent. He had all of Wembley on the edge of their seat as he performed a death drop with a sword in his mouth, just inches from the ground. Alex is easily one of the best acts in the world and he proved it on Saturday night.
Bars and Melody
The singers were finalists on Britain’s Got Talent in 2014. Since then, they have seen success and returned to the BGT to show it off. They sang one of their newest songs and had Wembley on their feet. They were good but to be honest, they sounded any generic group out on the charts now.
Despite representing Russia, the singer was a finalist on Das SuperTalent Series 12. His performance earned the Golden Buzzer in Germany and has attracted over 300 million views worldwide online. I can honestly say in all my years of watching these shows, I’ve never seen anything like that in my life. He had all of Wembley silent as he performed something close to a movie track. It was so different and captivating.
The comedian was a finalist on America’s Got Talent in 2018 and made her U.K. debut on Saturday. She brought her “trailer nasty” comedy to the BGT stage but this time she could not stick the landing. Halfway through her set, she forgot some of her set and struggled her way to finish.
Twist and Pulse
The dance duo was runner up in Series 4 of Britain’s Got Talent and returned on Saturday night to try and finally claim the top prize. They performed a mash-up of dances that was hilarious and showed off their great skill. Judge Alesha Dixon was so impressed, she hit her Golden Buzzer, sending them into the final.
The final act of the night belonged to Britain’s Got Talent 2014 winners. Five years after winning, they made their return in the hopes of being crowned the ultimate champion. They performed a mesmerizing song that had everyone on their feet. In my opinion, it was the best performance of the entire night.
Following the performances, hosts Ant and Dec returned with the big result. Twist and Pulse already went through because of Alesha’s golden buzzer and that meant there was just one spot remaining. It was revealed Collabro, Alex Magala, and Bars and Melody were in the top three. Collabro finished third and Alex was second, meaning Bars and Melody advanced to the final.
Twist and Pulse and Bars and Melody join Preacher Lawson, Stavros Flatley, Paddy and Nico, Darcy Oake, Alexa Launeburger, The MerseyGirls, Keniya Simonova, and Bello and Annaliese Nock in the final.
Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions concludes next Saturday at 8:30 pm on ITV.
