DVJ and duo Jack and Tim are the latest acts through to Sunday’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ final, after winning over viewers and the judges during Thursday’s live show.
Dancers DVJ won the public vote and received an automatic place, leaving the judges to decide whether comedian Noel James or father-son act Jack and Tim would be awarded the other place.
David Walliams kicked off the judging, citing his comedy roots as his reason for choosing Noel, after telling presenter Dec: “You can’t compare these two acts, they couldn’t be more different.”
Simon Cowell was next to vote and, as expected, he put through Jack And Tim, who were his golden buzzer choice at the audition stages.
Also opting for the singing duo, Alesha Dixon then said: “Noel I love you and have a lot of respect for you, but I’m going to put through Jack and Tim.”
Last up was Amanda Holden, who became the third judge to pick the musical performers.
“I’m fantastically pleased with how far I’ve got and I want to thank everyone for being a wonderful audience,” Noel James said after the result was decided upon.
Meanwhile, winners Jack and Tim couldn’t quite believe it and youngster Tim was in floods of tears as he thanked the audience.
“I think to join the rest of the amazing talent in the final… It’s absolutely incredible,” added dad Jack. “To be a part of this, that’s gold.”
The two acts join contestants including Lost Voice Guy and Donchez Dacres in Sunday’s final, the winner of which will take home £250,000 anda spot on the Royal Variety Performace bill.
Thursday’s semi-final ran smoothly and the biggest hiccup came during Marty Putz’s performance, when an unexpected soaking left Amanda and Alesha fleeing their seats.
