The Britain's Got Talent 2013 live shows start tonight, and here's this evening's line up!
Every night nine acts will take to the stage while the judges - Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams - will be on hand to offer their opinions and - if needs be - their buzzers.
But it'll be us viewers who, for the first time this series, will vote for our favourite and the act with the highest number of public votes automatically goes through to the live grand final on Saturday, June 7.
The two runner-up acts with the next highest vote tallies will then face the judges who will pick their favourite to go through to the live shows.
So, who's on Britain's Got Talent tonight? Here's tonight's BGT semi-final line up as it stands!
Who's on Britain's Got Talent tonight?
Darcy is a professional magician from Canada and began his magic career at the age of 10. He stunned both the audience and the judges by performing the seemingly impossible. Winning over the judges with his incredible illusions, Darcy received four yeses and a standing ovation from Alesha, Amanda and David.
Despite Collabro having only been together for one month they blew all of the judges away with their performance of Bring Him Home. Alesha described it as one of the strongest auditions she had seen and Simon was left shocked by their talent saying ‘I thought it was going to be awful’. They went through with four big yeses.
CountryVive are made up of 18 members who have been performing together for 5 years. Their
audition got the judges up on their feet dancing and was rewarded by four yeses and a standing ovation. They are looking to make country dance contemporary and current. David described them as “the answer to our prayers” and Amanda was amazed no one pushed the golden buzzer.
Lauren and Terrell
Lauren and Terrell have been best friends since meeting on the stage. They blew the judges away with their slick, timely dance routine. Their friendship and strong connection could be seen through their performance. All of the judges congratulated them on their togetherness and Simon’s only criticism was that he wanted more personality from Terrell. Alesha described them as “unbelievable” and David thought they “filled the stage much more than big groups”.

Christian lives in London and has been working as a waiter for the past five years. He caused controversy between the judges after he performed Tom Jones Sex Bomb. Simon, Amanda and Alesha promptly pushed their own buzzers and after attempting to protect his, David’s buzzer was also pushed leaving Christian with a blackout. This led to David using his Golden Buzzer taking Christian straight through to the semi-finals and leaving the judges speechless with Simon declaring ‘you made a mockery of that golden buzzer.
Jon Clegg has his father to thank for his performing background as he previously appeared on the ITV show ‘New Faces’. Jon made all the judges roar with laughter throughout his performance. As well as appealing to Simon’s love of cartoons by impersonating Marge Simpson, Jon successfully mimicked Alan Carr, Louis Walsh and bravely, Simon Cowell. Simon loved it, particularly Marge Simpson and Amanda thought it was “spot on”. Jon was delighted that he’d impressed the judges,
Music student Henrietta impressed the judges with her performance of Let Her Go by Passenger. Each of the judges saw something they liked in Henrietta. Amanda acknowledged her retro tone and Alesha enjoyed the jazzy aspect to her performance.
Micky is a check-out worker from Essex who lives with his mum in their mobile home and he is from a musical family. Micky wowed the judges with his performance of Bring Him Home and his genuine, likable character shone through. Simon told him that he felt the same charisma from Micky as the first time he saw Olly Murs. The judge’s responses moved Micky to tears and he was over the moon by the crowd’s reaction.
Patsy entertained the judges by performing Dream a Little Dream followed by inviting Ant & Dec onto the stage to be serenaded. Her comic anecdotes were well received by the judges and Simon even envisaged Patsy sitting in Amanda’s chair next year. David thought “it was very funny” and Amanda said she wanted to “see the dark side” of Patsy.
