BGT final 2024: Winner of this year’s talent show set to be crowned

The winner of Britain’s Got Talent is set to be named in Sunday night’s grand TV final.

There are 10 finalists, including a choir, a magician, a Ghanaian dancing duo and a Japanese skipping group.

The judges of the ITV show, Simon Cowell, Bruno Tonioli, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden, will return for one last time, alongside hosts Ant and Dec.

The winner of the 17th series of BGT will receive a cash prize of £250,000 and the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.

Public votes will open during the live show, with viewers at home encouraged to have their say.

The series has, as ever, been filled with spectacular talent and incredible acts.

A magician who used to film parody videos of auditioning for Britain’s Got Talent is one of the show’s finalists.

Jack Rhodes, from Ulverston, Cumbria, earned a spot in the ITV programme’s grand final by impressing the audience and judges with his crate of death stunt.

He was described as “now the favourite to win the entire competition” by Cowell.

But he faces stiff competition, including from a Northamptonshire singing group.

Northants Sings Out passed the semi-final stage after a split decision by the judges meant the public had the last say. It took them one step closer to becoming the first choir to win BGT.

Comedian Alex Mitchell and magician Trixy were the last two acts to make it through to the final, after a tense semi-final show on Friday.

Mitchell won the most public votes, after a stand-up routine which saw him poke fun at his autism and tics.

The judges then had to decide who they would put through to the final between the second and third most popular act, as voted for by the public.

Trixy won the majority of the judge votes after his performance which included mathematics, and he therefore went through, beating musicians Stefan & Denise.

At the end of Friday’s show, Ant and Dec also revealed the judges will be choosing a wildcard act to join the rest of the finalists in the live final. The act will be revealed on Sunday’s show.

The full list of BGT finalists are:

  • Singer, Innocent Masuku
  • Ssaulabi, Performance Troupe

  • Double Dutch group, Haribow
  • Singer, Sydnie Christmas
  • Singing Impersonator, Mike Woodhams
