Here's a recap of all the Britain's Got Talent golden buzzer acts of 2017.

There are once again a total of five golden buzzer acts on BGT 2017 with the contestants going straight through to the live shows.

And after six weeks of auditions, David Walliams, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell and Ant and Dec's choices have all been confirmed - here's all we know about all of them...

 

Simon Cowell: Sarah Ikumu

16-year-old student Sarah Ikumu won the first Golden Buzzer of the series from Simon and a standing ovation from the audience with her powerful rendition of 'And I Am Telling You'.

"It started off really well, I thought this girl's great, then it was like you became possessed halfway through," Simon reviewed. "It was quite incredible. You made it your song."

Amanda added: "I'm thrilled you got a Golden Buzzer, it was mindblowing."

 

Alesha Dixon: MerseyGirls (Just Us)

Alesha Dixon's golden buzzer on BGT 2017 is dance group MerseyGirls, previously known as Just Us. They are from The Wirral, made up of best friends Alice (17), Poppy (14), Julia (15), Annie (17) and Rebecca (16).

Speaking to panel before their performance, Julia revealed she has Scoliosis and will soon undergo surgery which will leave her unable to dance.

Just Us performed to Rachel Platten's Fight Song. After the routine, a teary Alesha Dixon hit the golden buzzer and said: "I have so much admiration for you girls right now, I can't tell you. Seeing how you come together, when you're passionate about something I can't imagine not being able to ever do that again.

"I really couldn't and that's why we all live, for the things we love to do. It really touched me."

 

Amanda Holden: Daliso Chaponda

Amanda Holden gave comedian Daliso Chaponda the third Golden Buzzer of Britain's Got Talent 2017, after his jokes about single life and the credit crunch left her in stitches.

Daliso's cheery persona had the judges and audience on his side as soon as he arrived on stage.

After his jokes, Amanda hit the golden buzzer to send Daliso through to the live shows.

"I think you're bloody hilarious," she grinned. "Self-deprecating, funny, relevant, laugh after laugh, it just kept on coming.

Ant and Dec: Matt Edwards

Ant and Dec's 2017 Golden Buzzer choice is magician Matt Edwards.

Matt went out on stage like a deer caught in headlights, telling the judges he specialises in 'crazy, variety' magic rather than sleight-of-hand. His zany trick started with a shot of tequila, and ended with a seemingly endless supply of salt pouring from his hand.

Chuckling from the sidelines, Ant commented: "It's like if Lee Evans done magic". Just as the judges were about to vote, he and Dec went out to hit the Golden Buzzer, guaranteeing Matt's place in the live shows.

 

 

David Walliams: Kyle Tomlinson

Kyle began by telling the panel how he first auditioned two years ago, but was harshly told to "get a singing teacher" by David. "Me? Doesn't sound like the kind of sensible thing I'd say!" the funnyman laughed.

Having worked hard to hone his craft, Kyle sang 'Hallelujah' for his big comeback - and this time David rewarded the 15-year-old with his Golden Buzzer.

"You sang with passion," he said. "I'm really glad you came back and proved me wrong."
