Jon Clegg has been picked as the 'Britain's Got Talent' wildcard act.
The comedic impersonator will go through to this Saturday's (07.06.14) live final after being handpicked by the judges, despite previously losing his place in the competition in the very first semi-final of the series.
Jon wowed the panel - including Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon - with his impression of 'BGT' host Declan Donnelly last week, but the public decided to send boy band Collabro and magician Darcy Oake through to the final.
Jon said: "I'm on top of the world. I thought I was in with a chance but there were so many strong contenders for the Wild Card.
"I thought Bailey had a good chance - he is hugely talented. Also Light Balance, Innova and Jodi."
While he has just three days to prepare for the final, the comedian is planning to stun the judges and audience with some hilarious new impressions.
He teased: "I've got quite a few new impressions planned for final. But I'll be bringing out a few favourites too. I'd say the act will be 75 per cent new material.
"I'm actually working for the next few days but I'll be rehearsing to make sure I'm 100 per cent ready. I've actually got a couple of gigs. They will give me a chance to try out some new material without giving too much away."
