Here's tonight's Britain's Got Talent 2018 semi-final line up with the contestants performing on Thursday's live show.
This evening will see the fourth live show of the series as another eight acts perform live before the public vote opens.
Each night eight of the final 40 semi-finalists will perform live in the hope of impressing viewers at home and winning the all-important public vote.
Two acts from each night’s show will make it into the live final on Sunday 3 June, with a chance of winning a life changing £250,000 and a spot at this year's Royal Variety Performance.
But this year it won’t just be down to the viewers. The act with the highest public vote will automatically go into the final while the judges will decide between the second and third placed acts as to who will join them.
Those through in tonight's episode will join Robert White, Gruffydd Wyn Roberts, Calum Courtney, Donchez Dacres, Lost Voice Guy and the D-Day Darlings.
Up on this evening's (Thursday) show are...
Tonight's Britain's Got Talent 2018 line up
JACK AND TIM
43-year-old Dad, Tim and 12-year-old son Jack, are from Norwich and moved BGT audiences with their original song, ‘Lucky Ones’, about their father and son bond. The personal song tugged on the heart-strings of Simon Cowell who said, “this says it all” as he pressed his golden buzzer, “I love that song, just magic. It reminded me of me and my boy.”
AMY MARIE BORG
16-year-old Amy lives in Malta with her Dad, Mum and younger brother. Half English and half Maltese, she has family roots in Manchester. Amy has only been singing a few years, and was extremely nervous walking onto the BGT stage. Despite this she impressed the judges with her rendition of ‘Nella Fantasia.’ “You mugged me didn’t you! You came out like a jelly and we didn’t think you would be able to talk let alone sing,” said Simon. “You genuinely filled the room, it was glorious Amy!”
Baba Yega are an alien dance group made up of five mysterious dancers from the planet Babalta. Baba Yega are mute and communicate through hand signals. The group auditioned for BGT as part of their mission of spreading love across planet Earth, which they certainly did when they brought their unique act to the stage. “Aliens have never won this show before,” said Simon. “We welcome you to Britain’s Got Talent.”
DVJ is a dance group made up of 10 schoolchildren, aged 10-18 years old. The dance group have been guided by Diversity’s Ashley Banjo but DVJ now want to step out in their own right as dancers and not be compared to their predecessors. “This competition is now on fire!” said Alesha. “I’ve got this young, fresh, raw energy in front of me and I can feel that you’re all hungry, I love you!”
Marty Putz is a 55-year-old visual comedian from Canada, living in Los Angeles. Marty was inspired by his Grandad who was an Inventor. Marty started learning magic as a child but then slowly gained an interest in building new inventions and using them in his entertainment act. Marty got the judges voting yes when he used one of his inventions to cover Simon in toilet roll. “That is the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life!” laughed David.
Noel is a 51-year-old comedian from Wales. He has been developing his comedy act for the past 20 years with varying degrees of success but hopes BGT will help him reach new audiences. Noel certainly gets the laughs from our judges with his silly humour and guitar. “You are a fantastic comedian,” said David. “You totally deserve to be a household name.”
Olena (31) from Moscow, is a professional musician and throat singer. For the past three years, Olena has been making money from traveling the world and performing with her jaw harp (Kromus) and tambourine. Olena credits her talent as being ‘close to nature’ as she is ‘connected to all the animals of our motherland.’ The judges were all astonished by her performance and Alesha said, “I absolutely love you, you’re other worldly, you’re like a stallion goddess!”
Sascha, 29, is a professional Rola Bola act who specialised in his act for 16 years. Sasha’s act involved stacking items on the rola bola and balancing several feet in the air. Sasha loves performing and shocking audiences, which he certainly did when he appeared on the BGT stage. Amanda said to Sascha, “It was really exciting! You turned into this nutter, it was fantastic!”
As well as performances from the acts, each night will also see a guest performer as the semi-finalists wait to find out if they are one step closer to being crowned winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2018.
Appearing on tonight's show will musical theatre performers Chicago.
