The lack of variety hasn't gone unnoticed by those watching at home, who think the show needs more unusual acts.

Several have called for singing acts to be banned altogether, with some saying the show is getting increasingly dull and 'boring'.

Earlier in the evening some viewers accused the show of being a 'set up' after mum and daughter Honey and Sammy won Amanda's heart.

14-year-old Honey and her mum arrived on stage and Honey told how her mum had been diagnosed with cancer and after a rough couple of years, things were finally looking up for them.

Also through tonight were a group of dancing turtles, a teenage orchestra who wowed with modern hits, a kids' choir, and a singing Ariel the mermaid and dancing Sebastian the Lobster, as well as a dancing duo from the Philippines.
