100 Voices Of Gospel and Mel & Jamie have become the first of this year’s ‘Britain's Got Talent’ hopefuls to bag a place in this year’s final.

The semi-finals kicked off on Sunday night (22 May), with 100 Voices Of Gospel sailing through to the final round of the competition, after getting the most votes from the public.

Something tells us they were a bit excited

It was then up to the judging panel to choose between Mel & Jamie and fellow singer Kathleen Jenkins, with only one of them able to bag a spot in this year’s live final.

While David Walliams and Alesha Dixon both opted to save Kathleen, Amanda Holden cast her vote for mother and son duo Mel & Jamie, claiming for her it was “[about] the relationship”.

Unable to make a decision, Simon Cowell then chose to leave it to the public, adding: “I was dreading this happening… oh God.”

Ultimately, it was Mel & Jamie who were the most popular with the public, who will join 100 Voices Of Gospel in the final next week, along with the eight more acts who will be decided in the next heats of the semi-finals over the next few nights.

What a moment

Sunday’s show was a typically eclectic one, featuring a Sparta-inspired gymnastics routine, a ballroom dancing extravaganza set to a medley of Beyoncé hits and a string of impressions set in a restaurant that wound up leaving Simon Cowell cold.

It was also a big night for crossbow extraordinaire Ben Blaque, who managed to soldier on, despite his performance being hit with a technical mishap.

‘BGT’ continues on Monday night, at 7.30pm on ITV.
