BGT finalists chosen

This Saturday is D Day for the successful Britain’s Got Talent 2016 contestants as the judges decide who will be making the live shows.

Thousands applied and auditioned for the new series, which will see one act walk away with a massive £250,000 cash prize in the grand final, a spot on the Royal Variety Show and a mystery "surprise" for being the show's tenth winner.

There were auditions in across the UK throughout January and February with all sorts of acts going before the panel in the hope of getting a yes, ranging from the usual singers and a dancers to a dancing polar bear and T-REX.

Only a hundred or so made it through after showing off their talents in front of this year's Britain's Got Talent judges, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.

Five lucky acts have already confirmed their places in the live shows after winning a golden buzzer, seeing them straight into the semi-finals.

There's Simon's dancing Stormtroopers Boogie Storm, Amanda's golden buzzer, 12-year-old singer Beau Dermott, Ant and Dec's choice, 14-year-old singer Jasmine Elcock, Alesha's act, 100 Voices of Gospel choir and finally David's golden buzzer performers, singing duo Ian and Anne Marshall.

The remaining 40 places will be decided by the judges on this weekend's final audition show. The panel will deliberate which of the remaining successful auditonees - you can recap ALL this year's BGT contestants here - should make the cut Saturday evening.

There will then be less than 24 hours before the first live show kicks off on the Sunday, with the remaining semi-finals airing across the week.

Nine acts will be performing each evening LIVE for the public vote and the one contestant with the most votes will automatically go through to the live grand final. The two runner-up acts will then face the judges who will pick their favourite to go through to the live shows.

Come the final, we'll have a total of 10 acts fighting it out for the title of Britain's Got Talent winner 2016, plus the cash prize.
