'Britain's Got Talent' acts Spelbound and Tobias Mead have gone through to the show's final.
The 13-member acrobatic troupe received a place in the last stage of the competition by taking the biggest share of the public vote last night (31.05.10), while the 22-year-old street dancer was forced to face the judges for the second slot.
Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden unanimously chose Tobias who incorporated sorcery with a ball in mid air to his performance, impressing the judges more than 14-year-old singer Olivia Archbold rendition of Kate Winslet's 'What If'.
Spelbound - who are favourites to win the competition - were told by Amanda: "I would love to see you be ambassadors for Great Britain".
The remaining acts who competed in the first of five live semi-finals last night were camp comic Kevin Cruise, Bollywood dance group Threebee, wood-chopping pensioner Sean Sheehan and 'The Regurgitator' Stevie Starr, who shocked audiences by swallowing Amanda's engagement ring - before bringing it back up attached to a padlock.
Amanda, 39, said: "I'm so relieved to get my ring back but I've never seen anything like that."
The winner of the show will receive a £100,000 contract and perform in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance.
The semi-finals of the contest continue on ITV1 tonight (01.06.10).
