'Britain's Got Talent' semi-final 5 - as it happened

By
Hello Britain's Got Talent fans! It's hard to believe that the last of the semi-finals is already upon us. Will tonight's live show manage to top what we have seen so far this week? It has a hard task on its hands, as Got Talent has served up a brilliant mix of the wacky and wonderful over the course of the last five days.

There are just three spots left in next Saturday's (June 8) final, and tonight nine more acts take to the stage to try and impress the judges and most importantly the Great British public. As usual, the act with the most amount of votes will automatically secure themselves a spot in the final, and they will be joined by the winner of the judges' vote. However, in a sneaky twist, one of this week's third-placed acts will get the chance to return as a 'wildcard'.

Shadow dance group Attraction return to the Talent stage alongside Derry-born singer Jordan O'Keefe and gospel singers The Voices of Incognito. Will Attraction have us reaching for the Kleenex once again? How many teenage hearts will break if O'Keefe misses out on a spot in the final?

Join Digital Spy from 7pm when the action kicks off over on ITV.

Britain's Got Talent judges





20:30BGT is back in an hour with the results and a special performance from Ashleigh and Pudsey! Let us know who you're backing for the final at the bottom of the page. Thanks for reading!


20:26Lines are now open! Will you be voting and if so, for who? My vote goes to ventriloquist Steve Hewlett, my surprise favourite of the night.


20:24Amanda says that Simon was crying during the performance too - wow!


20:23Amanda and Alesha are in tears again, and all four judges are on their feet. They loved it in the studio, and looks like it moved Rochelle Humes too.




20:20Can Attraction do it again? It's time to find out.


20:13That was an amazing performance. Simon thinks the risk will get him into the final - let's hope so!


20:10Jordan is taking a BIG risk by covering Whitney's 'I Will Always Love You'. It's sort of working though!

Jordan O'Keefe



20:08Jordan O'Keefe is up next! I can just hear the screams of teenage girls across the country.


20:07Who has been your favourite so far? Let us know in the comments section below.


20:01Was I the only one who was hoping that would get going a bit more?


19:59This is making me want to dig out my Sister Act DVDs.


19:57I'm really looking forward to gospel singers Incognito, let's hope they deliver!


19:55Alesha calls it the "most barking performance of the week". We'll agree with that.


19:54I'm just glad I wasn't an '80s baby after that. Absolutely terrible.


19:52Act number six is Maarty, and he's taking us back to the '80s...

Rob's Duelling Pianos



19:45So, Rob has split the judges, and by the looks of Twitter, he has split the opinion of viewers too. I don't think I'll be voting for him, I'm afraid.


19:43Alesha doesn't think Rob's Duelling Pianos would fit in at the Royal Variety Show, and Amanda is admiring his organ...


19:42I'm a bit speechless after that.


19:40Now Alesha...


19:40Oh dear, Simon has already buzzed!


19:39Can Rob pull it off without partner in crime Craig?


19:33Looks like that performance has even managed to change Simon's opinion. Well done Steve!


19:31Absolutely brilliant there from Steve Hewlett, Arthur and Simon Cowell (the dummy)!

19:28Time for Steve Hewlett and Arthur...


19:25Even Amanda sees the Princess Leia likeness tonight, and Simon is Darth Vader - JJ Abrams, take note!


19:24The Glambassadors serve up a medley of camp hits - we're not sure it topped the campness of our David, but a good performance nonetheless. Did they beat their first audition though? I'm not sure.


19:22They've promised to be camper than David Walliams... BRING IT ON! It's the Glambassadors!


19:18We have to agree...




19:17Time for our first break of the evening - time to stick the kettle on!


19:16Did Simon just shade Katherine Jenkins?!


19:14A stunning performance of 'Come What May' there from Aliki, but what will the judges think?


19:11Next up, it's Aliki Chrysochou!


19:09Amanda thinks that CEO just provided the "best ass action since J Lo". Let's leave it there, Amanda...


19:08A spectacular start to the show but it got a bit boring towards the end. What did you think of CEO's performance?

CEO Dancers



19:05CEO Dancers are first up tonight...


19:04Amanda thinks that this series is set to top the 2009 lineup of Susan Boyle, Diversity and Flawless. Do we agree?


19:03David thinks that it's a "hindrance" to tonight's acts to have spent the week watching this week's "fantastic" semi-finals.


19:02The judges are in the studio! Amanda looks like she's walked straight off the set of Star Wars, doesn't she?


18:59Good evening, BGT fans - let's go! Who is going to win a place in the final tonight?
