Maxwell is a 32-year-old busker and operatic singer who blew the judges away with his impressive pipes in his audition.

In his audition Maxwell belted out the operatic song Caruso, a moving song about the pain and desire of a man who is about to die.

His performance brought Amanda to tears and received a standing ovation from the judges and audience.

Maxwell was left to perform last on Monday’s semi-final, but undaunted he gave a powerful rendition of Now we Are Free, which film fans may recognise as the theme to the 2000 film Gladiator.

He once again had the judges on their feet by the end of his performance and Simon Cowell even called on composer Andrew Lloyd Webber to cast Maxwell in a production.

David Walliams said that it was a mistake that he had not received a golden buzzer after his first audition.

At the end of the show it was revealed that Maxwell had come top in the public vote and had therefore qualified for the final.

Jamie Leahey

The 13-year-old ventriloquist and his puppet Chuck were the next act to go through the Britain’s Got Talent final.

The teen gave a great performance in which he and his chicken hit a snag in their friendship and started bickering before coming back together to duet a new song, Chuck’s His Name.

Amanda told Jamie that “you’ve got a very slick act, you’re very professional, I completely believe in both you and Chuck.”

After Maxwell went through on the public vote, the judges had to vote for their favourite act out of Jamie and magician Junwoo who had the next most public votes.

David and Amanda voted for Jamie, and Alesha voted for Junwoo, leaving Simon with the power to put Jamie through or return the decision to the public vote.

Simon voted for Junwoo, and the result reverted to the public vote - Jamie was revealed to have more votes, and joined Maxwell as a finalist.

Ben Nickless

The impressionist comedian topped the public vote on Tuesday night and gained his place in Sunday’s final.

During his first audition, Ben took on 20 impressions in 60 seconds before bursting out into song in the voices of Take That.

During the semi-final, he launched into an impression of Elvis Presley on a a dodgy record, and rattled through another round of impersonations to the tune of This Is Me.

The audience and all four judged were on their feet by the end of his semi-final act - and the voting public clearly also got behind him as became the third act to sail through to the final.

Flintz & T4ylor

The rapper and pianist duo met during lockdown and became friends and collaborators, combining their musical talents.

Their audition saw Flintz perform an original rap about being a role model to his brothers whilst T4ylor played the piano.

At the live semi-final Flintz rapped to Shine as he stood on top of T4ylor’s piano, and the pair’s performance wowed the audience.

After Ben went through on the public vote it was revealed that Flintz & T4ylor and dog dancing act Amber and the Dancing Collies had the next highest number of public votes.

Amanda voted to put Amber through, but David, Alesha, and Simon all voted to save Flintz & T4ylor, sending them through to join Ben, singer Maxwell and ventriloquist Jamie in the final.

Tom Ball

Tom Ball is a teacher, and is singing in the Britain’s Got Talent finale.

Ball won the third live semi-final with his performance of Rise Like a Phoenix, the song made famous by Conchita Wurst’s 2014 Eurovision song.

Eva Abley

14-year-old comedian Eva Abley made the judges laugh with her stand-up set during the third Britain’s Got Talent live show.

Eva, who has cerebal palsy, was third place in the public vote.

She made it through to the Live Finals at the judge’s choosing.

Five Star Boys

The all-male dance troupe Five Star Boys performed a piece with a personal resonance, with their work influenced by their group’s core anti-bullying message.

Loren Allred

The singer most famous for her Greatest Showman performance has also made it through to the Britain’s Got Talent finale.

Despite early accusations that her success was a fix, and some arguing that her prior musical success meant she shouldn’t be allowed to enter Britain’s Got Talent, Simon Cowell has insisted that the show is about giving people second chances.

Axel Blake

Comedian Axel Blake wa the fifth and final act to perform on the fifth and final night of the live semi-finals.

He won comfortably, coming first in the public vote.

Blake previously recieved Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer on his first performance in the early rounds of the show.

Aneeshwar Kunchala

A 7-year-old David Attenborough impressionist, Aneeshwar Kunchala moved the judges to tears with his emotive plea to save the planet and conserve the environment.

Kunchala made it to the top three of the public vote, and was saved by the judges over the singing collective Welsh of the West End.
