Who is going to be the wildcard act in the Britain’s Got Talent Final this Saturday?
The winner of this years BGT wildcard which is chosen by the judges is expected to be announced on the night of the final itself.
Generally over the course of the five semi-finals the best two acts did go through, meaning there was no huge controversy over any great performers missing out.
Whoever does get the nod from the judges will still be highly unlikely to win the whole thing, with bookmakers Ladbrokes offering odds of 50/1 for the wildcard winner to triumph in the final.
Anyway, here are some of the favorites to take that 11th position on Saturday nights show:
Joseph Hall – Dancer. Joseph finished in third place in semi-final number 3, after splitting the judges votes two each he lost out in the public vote to young dance troupe Pre Skool. The dance instructor is generally considered the favorite to get the wildcard place, especially after judge Amanda Holden stated live on air he would be getting her vote for sure.
Youth Creation – Dance Troupe. Another of the shows young dance acts Youth Creation also managed to split the judges verdict in the first semi-final results, eventually losing out to singer Arisxandra Libantino in the public vote. However, with Pre Skool already in the final, it’s hard to see the judges awarding the wildcard to such a similar act.
Alice Fredenham – Singer. You have to believe that if the decision was purely down to Simon Cowell (assuming it’s not), Alice would be a cert for that last final place. The problem Cowell faces is that Fredenham didn’t even manage to make the top three in her semi-finals public vote, making it much harder for him to justify choosing her.
Other wildcard contenders include the ventriloquist Steve Hewlett, his Simon Cowell puppet alone got some of the most laughs in the series so far. Also singers Alex Keirl and, Jack and Cormac could yet be among the favorites to take the 11th final place.
