Here's tonight's Britain's Got Talent 2017 semi-final line up with the contestants performing on Monday's live show.
This evening will see the first live show of the series as eight acts perform live before the public vote opens.
In a twist this year there will be NO judges' vote: Instead the two acts with the most votes in each semi-final will automatically go through to the final on Sunday.
However the judges will get some power, with the panel picking one lukcy wild card act from the runners up at the end of the week to also make the final.
It means there will be a total of 11 acts in the final next Sunday night.
Up on this evening's (Monday) show are...
St. Patrick’s Junior Choir Drumgreenagh
St. Patrick’s Junior Choir Drumgreenagh is a school choir from a small village in County Down, Northern Ireland, made up of 36 pupils aged 8-12. Their dream is to perform in front of the royals and make Ireland proud. They performed Keane, ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ and received a standing ovation from the judges and the audience. Alesha said, “You all sang with passion, the song is beautiful.”
Dan is a 33 year old police officer from South London who works at Kingston Police and has been a massive fan of dance from a young age. Dan attended BRIT school and was always involved in performing arts but never pursued it professionally. He surprised the judges when he walked in with his police uniform and began to dance. David described it as, “Wonderful.”
Niels is a 26-year old entertainer from The Netherlands. Niels fell in love with magic at a young age and has been performing magic professionally for the past two years. His main influences are Tommy Cooper and Beyoncé. He entertained the judges and Ant & Dec with his performance and unique style of magic. Alesha said, “You are bonkers! Nuts! Your stage presence is fantastic”.
Kyle is a 15 year old student, who dreams of one day performing on Broadway. He lives in Sheffield with his parents and previously auditioned for BGT but didn’t make it through to the next round with David advising him to get singing lessons. This time round David pressed his golden buzzer after, “A really, really moving performance, I am glad you came back and proved me wrong.”
Empire Dance Crew
Empire Dance Crew are a dance group from all around the UK made up of 17 members aged 15-25. They are led by Rycardo Gomez and have been performing together as a group for over a year. Rycardo is a professional dancer and choreographer and has performed and worked with artists such as Little Mix, Pixie Lott and Meghan Trainor. The group like to fuse different dance styles and their goal is to be the biggest British dance crew. They really impressed the judges with their choreography. David described it as, “an explosion of energy!” and Amanda added “I really liked it. Very slick.”
Andrew (43) from London and Darren (29) from Essex are a double act of mind readers. They have been performing together for four years after meeting at an event. The mind reading trick they performed on Simon and Amanda completely blew the judges and the audience away.
Tyrone & Mina
Tyrone (35) and Mina (35) are a knife throwing couple from Spain who mix tango into their performances. Mina is originally from Argentina and the two met while working on a cruise ship as part of a tango show five years ago. Tyrone grew up in a circus family and was taught knife throwing by his dad aged 12 while they were traveling around Europe. Alesha described it as, “Dangerously seductive.”
Miss Treat Vibe
Miss Treat Vibe are a girl group, consisting of Lavelle (22) from Sheffield, Jeanette (24) from South London, Moesha (19) from Swindon and Bambi (22) from Birmingham. The girls live together in London and have been in a group for a year. Their performance of Salt N’Pepa’s ‘Whatta Man’ was a favourite with the judges with Simon saying, “You might be the greatest girl band we have ever seen on this show”
