Over the years the show has catapulted many contestants to fame and the remaining contestants are hoping to follow in the footsteps of previous winners such as Diversity, Attraction and Axel Blake.
This year has already seen the likes of hi-vis man Viggo and Welsh singer Travis George reach the final, with other hoping to join them for a chance of winning the £250,000 and a slot at the Royal Variety Performance.
The final of this year's show is expected to attract a huge audience of viewers but who has made it to this year’s final and how many places are still up for grabs? Here is everything you need to know.

Who progressed from Thursday’s semi-final?
Malaki Bayoh and Duo Odyssey were the fourth acts to book their place in the grand finale.
Bayoh is a talented 13-year-old singer and one of the favourites to win the entire competition.
During his Britain's Got Talent audition Bayoh wowed judges with his incredible vocals and he ultimately earned the golden buzzer from judge Simon Cowell.
Bayoh again impressed in the semi-finals and his performance brought judge Bruno Tonioli to tears as he won the public vote.
Duo Odyssey had to wait a while longer to secure their place in the grand finale.
