Here’s tonight’s Britain’s Got Talent 2019 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.
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 2 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.
Up on this evening’s (Monday) show are…
Tonight’s Britain’s Got Talent 2019 line up
14-year-old dancer Akshat Singh from Mumbai, India is Ant and Dec’s golden buzzer.
He said ahead of the live semi-final: “I will go there with 200% positivity and I’ll make sure I make each moment beautiful and full of life. It is my aim to make Britain happy. My next performance will be full of positivity, happiness, love and energy. It will be a real party on the dance floor, London I am waiting to rock, and I can’t wait to have a Nando’s!”
FLAKEFLEET PRIMARY SCHOOL
Flakefleet Primary School are a singing and dancing act made up of school students from Fleetwood, Lancashire. They are David’s golden buzzer.
They said: “We all keep saying how surreal this is for us, we’re just a regular school in our little part of the North West and we can’t believe we’re in the Live Semi-Finals. It does feel a little bit like when Leicester City were top of the Premier League table at Christmas and nobody could believe it..
The school says their semi-final performance is a “closely guarded secret”: “All we’re hoping is that we do ourselves, our school and our community proud.”
Brian Gilligan is a 32-year-old singer from Dublin.
“I’m really excited about the Live Semi-Finals and can’t believe I’ve made it this far,” Brian said. “It’s going to be a bigger and better song and I’m laying it all down for my family and especially for my brother Dave, hopefully he’ll hear me up there.”
DAVE & FINN
42-year-old Dave and Finn are a magic dog act from Hertfordshire.
They said: “Finn and I are very excited about appearing live on the Semi-Finals of BGT. A little nervous, too. We hope we do police dogs and the community proud. You can expect more tricks from Finn and hopefully a few amazing surprises. I really hope that the closeness and bond that Finn and I have comes through, too. I want to show how amazing dogs are, especially Finn.”
Khronos Girls are an all female girl group from Croydon, London.
They said of their semi-final performance: “You can expect more power, more drama and more attack! We are sharing another important message, perhaps more relatable for the younger generations. The piece is fierce and energetic and will hopefully resonate with anyone, male or female, that has ever looked in the mirror and allowed the demons to make them think they’re not good enough.”
ROSIE & ADAM
Rosie (21) and Adam (38) are a couple of Acrobatic Figure Skaters from Blackpool.
They said: “We are both extremely excited for the live shows as we are preparing what we believe to be our biggest performance yet. We feel that we have pushed the boundaries for the Live Semi-Finals and taken huge risks to perform some brand-new tricks!”
The Haunting, also known as a mysterious woman Elizabeth, is a Haunting Magic Act
Asked what she has planned for the semi-final, The Haunting said: “You’ll have to tune in to find out.”
Tony Rudd is a 58-year-old Impressionist from Bournemouth.
“Appearing on the Apollo stage and being on TV in front of millions of people live is just incredible and a lifelong dream!” he said. “Expect more crazy antics doing your favourite impressions with household items – a bigger and better movie extravaganza!”
It’s quite a varied selection of acts and we’ve no idea which two will be voted into the final!
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 2019.
Britain’s Got Talent 2019 airs tonight LIVE from 7:30PM on ITV with the results at 9:30PM.
The live semi-finals air all week until Friday before the final on Sunday, June 2.
