BGT’s second semi-final winners

They won themselves a place in the final after being chosen as the judges’ favourite act of the night.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, several changes have been made to the show, including the way the finalists are chosen.

This year, the judges – temporary head judge Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Simon Cowell’s stand-in, Ashley Banjo – choose their top three acts of each semi-final.

They then cast one vote each to decide which single act progresses to the final.

Then, the vote opens up to the public for the remaining seven acts of each show, with the results of the public vote being revealed at the show’s final next month.

In this week’s semi-final, Aaron and Jasmine faced off against spooky dance troupe The Coven and 10-year-old singer Souparnika Nair in the judges’ top three.

After both Aaron and Jasmine and The Coven received two votes each, it was head judge Amanda’s vote which decided who went through to the final.

This meant Aaron and Jasmine secured their future as BGT finalists.

Speaking after the result, Jasmine said: “We’ve waited all our lives for this, and it’s so nice to show it and share it with the world.”

And Aaron told the judges: “Thank you so much for your amazing feedback, and we will come back bigger and better and stronger.”

BGT public vote

The Coven – who received votes from Ashley and Alesha – and Souparnika Nair will now face the public vote, alongside the other five semi-finalists from Saturday’s show.

This includes magician Damien O’Brien, school singers Class Dynamix, comedian Allan Finnegan, singers Honey & Sammy, and dog rescuer and pup duo Amanda & Miracle.

Last week saw comedian Steve Royle become the first official finalist of this year’s talent competition.
