It only seems like yesterday that the Auditions for BGT 2014 aired on our TV's once again. With a welcome addition of auditions taking place in Belfast for the first time, the talent this year promised to be better than ever.

Fresh from last night's Team Midas success with Lucy Kay, we are back and ready for action in the shape of our Midas (Golden) buzzer act Bars & Melody. Is it greedy to want two acts in the final?

What do a boyband, a magician, a singer and a dance troupe all have in common? They are all in the BGT final 2014. This week is flying over and I can't believe we are already on semi-final three. Who will join them?

I laughed my head off during Ricky K's first audition will he improve with his second?  Well, sadly no, it started off ok, but then went a bit flat. I agreed with Simon, it was nowhere near as good as the first audition. Sorry Ricky.

The semi-finals have arrived and with barely time to reflect on their huge achievement, 9 of the remaining 45 acts perform for us once again their talent, and then face the public vote. From tonight's show just two acts will go on to make the live final in June.

12 year Schoolboy Ellis James Chick gets the ball rolling with his version of 'You Make Me Feel so Young' by Michael Buble. What an amazing voice. Note perfect. I'm very impressed. An easy set of yeses.

The live BGT shows are now so close you can almost touch them. But, before all that, we have two more audition shows to enjoy and to find that elusive last Team Midas act to join Lucy Kay and Bars & Melody.

As we hit week five, the question I keep being asked, apart from have I met Simon Cowell, is when will I press my golden (Midas) buzzer? Well, time will tell. I am looking for that special someone. Wouldn't it be funny if we ever had someone audition on BGT called Simon Cowell?

Last night the knockout rounds kicked off with Team Kylie and Team Sir Tom picking their teams. Tonight it's over to Team Will and Team Ricky.

As the battle commenced last week it was a nervy, but successful, round for Team Midas. All four acts, including 'steal' act Christina Marie, progressed to the knock outs.

Brothers Shenton and Bizzi Dixon arrived at the auditions together but were quite clearly in competition. Tribute performer Shenton was up first.  Again it wasn't bad, but not enough for the coaches or Midas chair to turn. Can his brother do it?

Will horse loving Fiona Kelly jump in to the next round. Well no, she sadly fell at the first hurdle. The nerves were there for all to hear. With coaching and controlling those nerves, I think Fiona should audition for another show (cough) BGT.

Last weekend we went back in time to the eighties. This week it's all about the love and heartache.

The first live show brings so much pressure, so much in fact, even I'm sweating and I'm not even singing. The theme tonight is the 80's so get out your leg warmers and fingerless gloves...

Well done to the producers for giving us a fantastic opening weekend of the X Factor. It was entertaining, the judges were fun and most of all the talent was smoking. Oh, and not bad ratings either. So after last week's immense talent, whose up first...

Deano, Deano, Deano, oh sorry, you caught me daydreaming about singing at Wembley Arena.  Right, back to audition show Four. White van driver Shelley Smith was up first, good start, not my cup of tea, but I can't knock the vocal ability and the energy. An audience pleaser. See you at bootcamp.

What I am hoping to see this year? Well, I think a mixed group will do well. I also think the boys section will be very strong again this season and as we know, the first ever series started with an 'overs' victory, so will we get a repeat on the 10th show?? Time will tell on that one.

This has to be one of the best ever BGT semi-final series of shows and as it draws to a close, this final show was probably the toughest one to call. I really think anyone of five could vie for the two remaining Final places.
