Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions continued this weekend – here are all the performances and results from the fifth episode.
The brand new show welcomes back acts from the past 13 years of BGT to go head to head in a bid to be crowned ultimate champion.
But they’re competing alone, going up against contestants from across the world as well as each other.
Across the first five episodes, nine acts will take to the stage each Saturday night and two will make it through to the grand final.
In the fifth and final heat tonight (September 28), the results saw dance duo Twist and Pulse and singing duo Bars and Melody make it through.
Twist and Pulse won the latest golden buzzer of the series from Alesha Dixon while Bars and Melody won the superfan audience vote. Both will go through to the final.
They complete the final line up, joining last week’s heat winners – American comedian Preacher Lawson and dance duo Stavros Flatley – together with previous heat winners: Salsa dancers Paddy & Nico, illusionist Darcy Oake, German dog act Alexa Lauenburger, dancers MerseyGirls, Ukrainian sand performance artist Kseniya Simonova and daredevil duo Bello and Annaliese Nock.
