The semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent kicked off over the bank holiday weekend as the public decided which acts they wanted to see in the finale on Saturday.
It came as no surprise that Scottish favourite Susan Boyle sailed into the next round as she wowed the judges again with her rendition of the Andrew Llyod Webber hit Memory from musical Cats.
Almost 14 million people tuned in to watch the 46 year old church worker cruise into the finale along with the judges choice, Essex dance collective Diversity.
A modest Boyle, who is still odds on favourite to win the talent show said of her victory: “It was totally unexpected – but I’m feeling pretty good about the result…The audience reaction was stunning, I still cannot believe it.”
Boyle, nicknamed the ‘hairy angel’ by the tabloid press said of performing in the final: “I’m really looking forward to giving an improved act. I’m going to do the best I can.”
We cant wait to see what Su-Bo has in store...
Last night also saw dance troupe Flawless become the third act to make the final as the collective stayed true to their name delivering a perfect performance.
Public schoolboy come rugby player/singer Shaun Smith also made the cut as the judges chose him to join Susan Boyle, Flawless, and Diversity after his version of the U2 hit Without You blew the judges away.
Amanda Holden told the 17 year old: “You were absolutely brilliant. Susan Boyle has big competition…”
We guess we will just have to see as eight more acts battle it out tonight for a place in the converted final. Keep it MTV News for more Britain's Got Talent reports…
