There will be a Britain's Got Talent 2017 wildcard, it's been confirmed.

The judges will pick one act to make the final following the end of the semi-finals this evening.


The news follows the decision to AXE the usual power the judges have in the live shows.

This year there was NO judges' vote in the results - instead the public alone will determined the top acts who make the final each night.

Unlike in past years where the top act went through to the final and the judges chose between the next two most popular acts, this year it was the public who have all the power.

In each of the semi-finals the two acts with the most viewers votes go straight to the final.

They'll be joined by the judges' wild card to make for a total of eleven acts in the final.

At the time of writing, eight acts have so far been confirmed for Saturday night's final - which has moved from the Sunday evening.

Singers The Pensionalities and dancers MerseyGirls (aka Just Us) were the latest confirmed finalists on Britain's Got Talent 2017 this year last night.

They join the winners of Monday's semi-final, mind readers DNA and singer Kyle Tomlinson, Tuesday's semi-final winners Magicians Issy Simpson and Matt Edwards and Wednesday's semi-final champions pianist Tokio Myers and comic Ned Woodman on the line up so far.

The final two confirmed acts will be revealed in tonight's results show from 9:30PM on ITV.


The judges will then pick the wildcard act to join them from the acts who haven't made the cut, with their decision to be announced ahead of Saturday's final show.

The Britain's Got Talent 2017 final airs at 7:30PM on Saturday, June 3 on ITV.
