Boyband New Bounce were branded "the ones to beat" by Simon Cowell on 'Britain's Got Talent' last night (31.05.11).
Mitchell Zhangazha, Kuan Fyre, MJ Sanneh and James Anderson were voted through to the ITV1 show's final, taking place this Saturday (04.06.11), after they impressed the panel - which also includes Amanda Holden, David Hasselhoff and Michael McIntyre - with their version of Jessie J's 'Price Tag'.
Simon told the teens: "I saw your audition, it was very dated. This time it felt like that you chose the song. I loved your version.
"This is the first time in two days that I've seen an act which I genuinely believe will be successful in the real world."
Keyboard player Jean Martyn was also put through to the final, with Amanda comparing the excitable musician to an energy drink, calling her "a can of red bull".
Meanwhile, Britney Spears impersonator Lorna Bliss was booted off the programme after causing controversy by making it through to the semi-final, despite getting buzzed by judges three times in auditions.
When hosts Ant and Dec asked why the 30-year-old lookalike was allowed back on the show in the first place they were told by Amanda that it was David and Simon's wish to keep the scantily clad dancer in the competition.
She said: "When we were doing the deliberation about which acts to put through, we realised something was missing from the show.
"The Hoff realised it was Lorna Bliss, so the Hoff started it and I'm sure Simon will finish it."
