THE Britain’s Got Talent live semi-finals are almost over but the competition has only gotten tougher.
With the final just around the corner, we’re taking a look at this year’s favourites to win the competition. Here’s what we’ve gathered so far…
Who will win Britain’s Got Talent?
Here are the latest odds on who will win Britain’s Got Talent by Coral:
Dave and Finn – 3/1
Brave pup Finn was stabbed while trying to save his handler copper Dave Wardell.
The sad tale prompted tough guy Simon to break down in tears, as well as triggering tears from Ant McPartlin.
And it also helped them secure a spot in the next round.
Dave was born and raised on a South London council estate, and says he has always loved dogs.
He is already through to Sunday’s final (June 2, 2019).
Chapter 13 – 4/1
Chapter 13 are a boyband made up of four teenage boys and they are being backed to win the competition.
The adorable boys’ audition for Britain’s Got Talent was shown on May 11, 2019.
They sang a Stevie Wonder medley which included Signed, Sealed, Delivered, Sir Duke and Superstition.
They were so good that judge Amanda Holden awarded them her Golden Buzzer.
Jonathan Goodwin – 5/1
The stunt Jonathan performed saw him raised up to the ceiling as he hung upside down while wearing a straight-jacket.
He was then set on fire as he attempted to free himself from the bondage before suffering severe burns.
The daredevil has performed the identical trick on several primetime shows including ITV show The Next Great Magician, and as a guest performer in front of BGT judge Simon Cowell on America’s Got Talent.
Going by his stage name of ‘The Daredevil’, Jonathan performs in London’s West End as part of ensemble, The Illusionists.
Flakefeet Primary School Choir – 8/1
The kids’ choir from Flakefeet Primary school is led by headteacher Dave McPartlin (absolutely no relation to Ant, by the way)
The aspiring singers are aged between 4 and 11 and have a variety of singing abilities.
And they performed an energetic version of Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now for their first audition.
They are also through to the BGT final.
4MG – 10/1
Since their first audition 4MG have wowed the judges.
But the young magicians went all out in the semi-final when they performed their ultimate trick.
The illusion saw the four judges in awe and ended with Stavros Flatley coming onto the stage.
This was enough to win the audience over and they got the most votes on their semi-final night, which saw them automatically put through to the grand final.
Colin Thackery – 12/1
Colin Thackery is an 89-year-old Second World War hero and a singer.
