The 45 acts through to the live semi finals were unveiled on last night's episode (25.05.14) of 'Britain's Got Talent'
This year's 'Britain's Got Talent' semi-finalists have been revealed.
The lucky 45 contestants, who include 18 singers and 12 dance acts, will now perform in front of a live audience between 26 and 29 May to be in with a chance of securing a spot at the Royal Variety Performance and taking home a cash prize of £250,000.
Five acts were already guaranteed a place in the semi finals after each of the four judges and ITV talent show hosts Ant and Dec buzzed through their favourite act using the new golden buzzer during the auditions.
Simon Cowell chose young musical duo Bars and Melody, Amanda Holden favoured salsa dancing granny Paddy and Alesha Dixon plumped for girl band REAformed, while David Walliams picked Romanian singer Christian Spridon and Ant and Dec opted for comedian Toju.
Following last night's (25.05.14) nail-biting episode of the competition, other fan favourites including posh electronic violinist Lettice Rowbotham, puppeteer Patsy May and impressionist Jon Clegg were put through to the live shows.
French dance trio Yanis Marshall, Arnaud & Mehdi, Canadian magician Darcy Oake and Ukrainian dance troop Light Balance also impressed the judges enough to fight for the public vote.
Singers including 14-year-old Bailey McConnell and Ed Drewett, who has written for One Direction and Olly Murs, made it through, as did memorable dance troupes like line dancers CountryVive and Latin group Kings and Queens.
