But who is in the line-up? Find out everything you need to know below…
Who is in the second week line-up of Britain’s Got Talent?
Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions hit TV screens on Saturday, August 31, with stars from across the world competing to be crowned the ultimate champion.
And it was Bello and Annaliese Nock who were voted through to the final, along with Kseniya Simonova who was given the Golden Buzzer by Amanda.
Two more acts from this week’s show will be joining them in the final, but who will it be? Here’s who’s taking part this week…
Paul Zerdin is a British comedian and ventriloquist from London.
He got his first puppet from a family friend when he was 10 years old and his love of performing was born.
Before auditioning for America’s Got Talent, Paul made a number of TV appearances in the UK including presenting kids show Rise and Shine on GMTV for two years and winning The Big Big Talent Show in 1996.
The ventriloquist, 47, is touring the UK in 2019 with his Puppet Party.
MerseyGirls, formerly known as Just Us, are a group of five girl pals who have been dancing together since the age of five.
Julia, Annie and Alice, Rebecca and Poppy make up the group, who formed when they were just five years old.
The girls wowed on their first audition on series 11 of Britain’s Got Talent and received the coveted Golden Buzzer from judge Alesha Dixon.
They then got through to the final where they came in fourth place.
Jai McDowall is a Scottish singer-songwriter born on July 24, 1986, in North Ayrshire.
Jai won Britain’s Got Talent in 2011 with a cover of Josh Groban’s hit To Where You Are.
His first audition in Liverpool won him three yeses and positive feedback from judges Michael McIntyre, Amanda Holden and David Hasselhoff.
And during the semi-final, his performance of Evanescence’s Bring Me To Life garnered him the most public votes on the night.
But it was his rendition of Josh Groban’s classic that won him the competition and the £100k prize money in the final.
Lost Voice Guy
Lost Voice Guy is called Lee Ridley.
He became the first comedian to win the show in its history back in 2018.
In the final which drew in 8.7 million viewers, he edged out competition from musical comedian Robert White, who came second, and singer Donchez Dacres who placed third.
After being crowned victor, the comedian was clearly touched confessing: “I have been blown away by the support of the judges and the general public.
“I’m very excited to perform in front of the Queen.”
Before joking: “I’ve loved her since she sang Bohemian Rhapsody.”
He also revealed: “When I am performing, it’s as if I have finally found my voice – and it’s a great feeling making people laugh.”
Gao and Lio
Couple Gao Lin and Liu Xin are Chinese acrobatic dancers who wowed Britain’s Got Talent audiences with their impressive routine in 2017, that saw Liu stand on her husband’s shoulder on pointe, on one leg.
Besides Britain’s Got Talent, the pair also competed on Asia’s Got Talent in 2015.
They made it to the live finals but were beaten in the end by Filipino shadow puppet troupe El Gamma Penumbra.
Their first audition amazed audiences, who gasped and clapped along with every trick.
Asia’s Got Talent judge Mel C got up in the middle of judges’ comments to award the pair her Golden Buzzer.
The duo have also auditioned for China’s Got Talent and China’s So You Think You Can Dance.
Alfredo and Anna Silva are from Las Vegas, Nevada, and met eight years before their audition.
The couple married in 2014.
Alfredo and Anna Silva, known as knife thrower duo Deadly Games, competed on season 11 of America’s Got Talent in 2016.
They were eliminated at the semi-final stage.
In their act Alfredo threw knives towards Anna as she stood still before she turned her back on him and moved from side to side as he continued to throw knives.
100 Voices of Gospel
100 Voices of Gospel is a gospel choir, with members from over 20 different countries, who all appeared on the talent show in 2016.
For their audition, they performed a touching rendition of This Little Light of Mine, blended in with all kinds of acrobats, stunts, harmonies and plenty of vocal control.
It wasn’t that much of a shock when Alesha Dixon pressed the Golden Buzzer for the choir, which automatically sent them straight to the semi-final.
Alesha beat Simon Cowell to the Golden Buzzer as he admitted he wanted to send them through too.
Alexa Launeburger auditioned for the 11th series of Germany’s Das Supertalent, which kicked off its premiere on September 16, 2017.
By December, 2017, Alexa had won the series with the help of a dozen number of dogs, but controversy surrounded her win once it was claimed that the teen hadn’t trained the animals herself after all.
In the midst of her time on Das Supertalent, her father Wolfgang Lauenburger had also made an appearance on German television, having shown off his own skills with pets on the Sat.1 show Superpets – Die talentiertesten Tiere der Welt.
His performance was a very similar number to Alexa’s act, but at this point, it no longer mattered since the youngster had already won the competition.
Antonio Sorgentone is a 37-year-old pianist from Abruzzo.
He ended up winning the 2019 edition of Italy’s Got Talent, triumphing his competition in the last episode on March 22 with his exceptional musical skills.
Antonio, who deems the late Renato Carosone as his favourite musician, grew up in a house where almost everybody in the family could play an instrument.
And at the age of 10, he decided to commit all of his attention on his music career, which later led him to enter Italy’s Got Talent.
His audition was so well received that record producer Mara Maionchi ended up awarding him with a Golden Buzzer, which instantly sent him straight to the live semi-finals.
When will Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions be on TV?
The Britain’s Got Talent spin-off show continues THIS SATURDAY (September 7, 2019) at 7.30pm, with week two.
The series will run for six weeks – with this in mind the show is likely to end on October 5, 2019.
We know that the final was taped at Wembley Arena at the end of July.
Embarrassingly, the act who won the contest showed off their trophy outside the arena.
But we won’t spoil it for you, however, if you do care to know who’s won the show, a simple Twitter search will bring up the answer in no time.
More on BGT: The Champions
How does Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions work?
Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions consists of former contestants from winners to Golden Buzzer acts and fan favourites.
This is the first time Britain has hosted a Champions edition of the show.
It is pre-recorded, filmed before the usual judges – David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and, of course, Simon Cowell – and a live studio audience.
So it’s the judges and “superfans” alone who decide the winner – no home voting!
America’s Got Talent: The Champions has already aired in the US across seven episodes.
The competition resulted in magician Shin Lim, winner of the thirteenth season of AGT, triumphing.
