The other 40 acts were picked by the judges after all of the auditions. > Here's the full line up of Britain's Got Talent 2016 finalists!

How do the live shows work?

In each semi-final there will be 9 acts performing and it'll be the public voting for their favourite, although the judges can still press their buzzers.

In each semi-final, the one act with the most public votes will go straight through to the final.

The judges will then decide which of the next two highest voted acts will join them, with the public vote being used if the panel can't come to a majority decision.

It'll leave 10 acts for the live final... unless there's another wild card!
