britains got talent 2016 top ten

Britain's Got Talent 2016's live shows are coming but who will make the cut? Here are ten acts to keep an eye on over the weekend!

While the five golden buzzers have been confirmed, the remaining 40 spots are up in the air with a 100 or so acts chasing them.

We'll have to wait until this Saturday night as the judges pick who makes the cut, but until then here are ten acts from the auditions to watch out for...

Alexandr Magala

Sword Swallower Alexandr Magala shocked the judges and every one watching in the very first auditions episode. Speaking after the audition aired, Alexandr promised something even more daring if he makes the live shows although we can't even begin to imagine what he wants to do...

 

Jack Higgins

14-year-old dancer Jack beat the bullies to audition on Britain's Got Talent, showing off his love of ballet in a powerful performance that moved the judges, but will he make it into the semi-finals?

 

Darren Altman

One of a few impressionists to go before the judges this year, Darren seemed to stand out from the rest with his impersonations of Jeremy Clarkson, Gok Wan, Boris Johnson and BGT's very own Declan Donnelly. Will the judges pick him for the live shows? And if so, what other impressions does Darren have to show?

 

Elite Squad Royalz

Elite Squad Royalz were one of a large number of dance acts on this year's series but their comic performance, which included 'The Queen' herself, was one of the most memorable. Let's hope they've been working on an equally good routine for if they make the live shows!

 

Kathleen Jenkins

Kathleen Jenkins drew comparisons to Susan Boyle after a stunning performance of Wild Horses in the auditions. The full standing ovation from the judges was quite a different experience when compared to Kathleen's day job as a toilet cleaner.

 

Lucy and Trip Hazard

Lucy Heather and her dog Trip Hazard, a Maltese and Pomeranian mx, could prove to be the third animal act to win BGT if they make the live shows. Back at the auditions, the judges and the audience all fell in love with the adorable Trip and his impressive tricks.

 

Richard Jones

Is it time for a magician to FINALLY win Britain's Got Talent? Jamie Raven came so close last year and now Richard Jones looks to be the best hope for this year's series, assuming he makes the live shows first of course!

 

Saulo Sarmiento

Saulo Sarmiento is definitely one to watch... and keep watching. The hunky gymnast brought 'extreme pole dancing' with Britain's Got Talent with a unique aerial performance. We're definitely up for seeing more in the live shows, even if he just stands there.

 

Shannon and Peter

Husband and wife couple Shannon and Peter previously made the finals of Got To Dance on Sky1, can they go one step further and WIN Britain's Got Talent? Having moved the judges with their audition, we'd be shocked if they don't at least make the semi-finals.

 

Ruby Murray

Ruby Murry - aka Tom Lee - definitely shocked the judges with his drag act. Even Simon Cowell said yes after taking the panel by surprise with a powerful performance of Nessun Dorma. We've no idea what the plan is if he makes the live shows...

 

The Britain's Got Talent semi-finalists will be revealed this Saturday night straight after the last auditions on ITV from 8PM.

The live shows begin on Sunday at 7:30PM on ITV, airing across the week.
