Britain’s Got Talent 2022 finalists: Meet the contestants and wildcard in the final

Here’s a run down of the Britain’s Got Talent 2022 finalists and newly announced wildcard!

Last weekend saw the last of the BGT 2022 auditions on ITV as the final few contestants were chosen.

The judges then faced the difficult task of cutting down this year’s crop of talented contestants to the lucky 35, who got the chance to perform in the live shows. They joined the five golden buzzer acts who had a guaranteed spot in the semi-finals already.

Over the past week, the semi-finalists have performed live for viewer votes and each night two acts made the final this Sunday.

After five semi-final live shows, here are the finalists – plus the extra wilccard!
