Who made it through on Britain’s Got Talent tonight?
Eight acts took to the Britain’s Got Talent stage tonight.
Things are a little different this year, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The acts performed in front of the social distanced judges, David Walliams, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Ashley Banjo and there was no studio audience.
Viewers at home were treated to dance routines, magic acts, classical music and comedy over the evening.

After each act performed, the judges were tasked with picking their top three acts who they wanted to see through to the final.
Together, they chose Magical Bones, X1X Crew and Sirine Jahangir.

He went behind the scenes of an illusion trick and wowed the judges by making his girlfriend Mel and son magically appear in the box.
Dance troupe X1X crew performed their jaw-dropping acrobatic dance routine from India.
Sirine Jahangir, 15, from London wowed the judges once again with her angelic voice.
