Britain’s Got Talent 2014: First live semi-final line up uncovered!

The first live semi-final for Britains Got Talent starts tonight, and the line up has been announced.

Every night, nine acts will perform in an attempt to gain a place in the final and get votes from the public.

For the first time this series, the person with the highest votes will automatically gain a place in the grand final on Saturday the 7th of June. The two runners-up will face the judges who will choose one of them who they liked the most to also go to the final.

The line up is as follows:

Magician Darcy Oake from Canada, who will be performing tonight following his incredible illusions which left him with four yeses from the judges.

Collabro are also performing tonight, who are a singing group who also received great feedback from the judges and four yeses, despite only being together for a month prior to auditioning.

18 piece group CountryVive will be taking to the stage, who aim to make country dance more contemporary. They have been together for 5 years, and David described them as “the answer to our prayers”.

Dancing tonight will be Lauren and Terrell who blew away the judges at the audition with their fantastic audition. Their friendship shone through and the judges and audience could tell they had a strong connection. David thought their stage presence “filled the stage more than big groups”.

Christian Spridon caused controversy between the judges when he performed Sex Bomb. Despite Simon, Amanda and Alesha pushing their buzzers and David’s being pushed, David used his golden buzzer to send him straight to the semi-final. This left the judges speechless, with Simon declaring to David that he made a mockery of the golden buzzer.

Impressionist Jon Clegg enlightened the judges when he impersonated Marge Simpson, Alan Carr, Louis Walsh and BGT’s very own Simon Cowell which Simon seemed to love.

Music student Henrietta Adewole sang ‘Let Her Go’ by Passenger and inspired the judges, especially Alesha with her jazzy performance and Amanda with her retro tone.

Check-out worker Micky Dumoulin wowed the judges when he sang ‘Bring Him Home’ and Simon said he reminded him of when he first met X Factor 2009 contestant Olly Murs. His performance reduced judges to tears, and we can’t wait to see his performance tonight.

Patsy May will be on stage tonight aswell, who entertained the judges in her audition by serenading Ant and Dec on stage and her comical tone was well received by the judges.

 

The live semi-final will be on ITV1 at 7.30pm tonight (26th May).
