Here's tonight's Britain's Got Talent 2018 semi-final line up with the contestants performing on Wednesday's live show.
This evening will see the third live show of the series as another eight acts perform live before the public vote opens.
Each night eight of the final 40 semi-finalists will perform live in the hope of impressing viewers at home and winning the all-important public vote.
Two acts from each night’s show will make it into the live final on Sunday 3 June, with a chance of winning a life changing £250,000 and a spot at this year's Royal Variety Performance.
But this year it won’t just be down to the viewers. The act with the highest public vote will automatically go into the final while the judges will decide between the second and third placed acts as to who will join them.
Those through in tonight's episode will join Calum Courtney, Donchez Dacres, Lost Voice Guy and the D-Day Darlings.
Up on this evening's (Wednesday) show are...
Tonight's Britain's Got Talent 2018 line up
Gruffydd is a 22-year-old, Theatre Assistant, from Amlwch on the Isle-of-Anglesey in North Wales. Gruff is a rugby player, and hasn’t had the confidence to audition for BGT previously, but after receiving the support of his friends, family and teammates he is determined to win the show. Getting the judges up on their feet, astonished Amanda said: “When you were 10 and Paul Potts auditioned on this show 12 years ago, he blew us away with that song and oh my God, you just did the same. Congratulations!”
Marc, 46, lives with his wife, Tessa, and daughter Isabella. Marc wowed the judges and Ant and Dec with his incredible and powerful mind reading act, which featured his daughter. As all the BGT team were blown away by Marc’s act, Ant and Dec rushed out from the wings shouting, “you don’t have to vote” as they pressed their golden buzzer. “Remarkable, well done!” said Ant, whilst Dec let Marc know that “that was so brilliant! It got me right there…” and pointed to his heart.
Acrocadabra are a group made up of 33 dance school students. On BGT the group performed a magic dance routine which combines dance, acro-gymnastics and some unexpected magic tricks which will see girls vanish, others sawn in half and some clever quick changes.
Aleksandar is a 23-year-old singer from Stevenage. In his day job, Aleksander works for the local council but singing is his main passion especially jazz and swing. On BGT Aleksandar sang an original rendition of ‘Seven Nation Army’ by the White Stripes. Simon said: “This was so clever, what you did, that you turned a song into a swing song. It was authentic, it was cool, I actually feel like I’m witnessing a star.”
DMU GOSPEL CHOIR
DMU Gospel Choir are a group from Leicester who have been together since 2003. The choir started when they were all at Emmanuel Apostolic Church and many of the members have jobs within the church. These include the Church Bishop, Church Minister and two Chaplains. The DMU Gospel Choir sang “I Will Follow Him / Oh Happy Day.” “Praise the lord,” said Alesha. “That was uplifting, joyful, powerful, heavenly!”
Mr Uekusa, 30, has been entertaining people with his table cloth tricks for three years but has been a comedian for 10 years. Although he performs regularly in Japan, Mr Uekusa believes Britain’s Got Talent will be his opportunity to showcase his act worldwide. He certainly surprised our BGT judges and audience as the table cloth tricks were performed on his own naked body. We’re always looking for something different on the show, and we’ve never seen an act quite like you before!” said Alesha.
Rise Unbroken are a group of 11 dancers aged between 10 - 24 years old. They performed a dance with wheelchairs to help one of their members, Hollie Booth, get back into dancing following injuries she sustained during the Manchester terror attack in 2017. Their BGT performance completely moved the judges and audience alike, as Rise Unbroken showed the power of defiance and friendship. “You are all remarkable women, and that was probably one of my favourite moments ever,” said Alesha. “I think the whole of Manchester was proud of you, and the whole of the UK will be too!”
Robert, 41, from West Sussex, is a comedian and works part-time as a music teacher at a primary school, as well as other ad-hoc jobs such as a ‘Christmas Elf’ wrapping gifts over the holidays. Robert is dyslexic and has Asperger’s Syndrome and finds his passion for both music and comedy an outlet for his creativity and energy. “Everything you said was hilarious!” said David. “You’re just a beautiful soul, comedy flows through you like water… I just can’t wait to see what you’re going to do next.”
As well as performances from the acts, each night will also see a guest performer as the semi-finalists wait to find out if they are one step closer to being crowned winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2018.
Appearing on tonight's show will be singer Rita Ora.
Britain's Got Talent 2018 airs tonight LIVE from 7:30PM on ITV with the results at 9:30PM.
The live semi-finals air all week until Friday before the final on Sunday, June 3.
