Paddy & Nico and The Jack Pack triumphed in Saturday’s live semi-final of Britain’s Got Talent, beating off some seriously stiff competition.

Paddy, who had earlier on in the week been forced to drop out due to health issues, made a surprise return to last night’s show.

And despite fluffing a few of their moves (THEY ONLY HAD ONE DAY OF REHEARSALS PEOPLE), the dynamic dance duo still managed to wow the judges with both their scarily flexible joints.

The greatest advert for geriatric NHS care will be joined in the final by the Sugarhut’s answer to a Michael Buble tribute act, The Jack Pack.

The devilishly handsome boys wowed the audience with their Gatsby themed stage setting, and sang a rousing version of Frank Sinatra’s classic ‘My Way’.

Seriously, they gave Towie’s Arg a run for his money.

The runner-up prize went to the haircut that has divided a nation, Bailey McConnell.

Bailey may have got Simon’s vote when it came to the judges choosing between him and Paddy & Nico, but it just wasn’t enough – Bailey and his self-penned song had to make a weary trip back up the M1 to Milton Keynes at the end of the night.

If it’s any consolation, we LOVE your hair Bails.

Also losing out was our weird celebrity crush of 2014, Jenson Zhu. The ‘comedian’ and part-time translator made us majorly LOL with his surreal impersonations, but unfortunately the audience at home were having NONE of it.

Peat Loaf and Elaine, bringing an entirely new meaning to the phrase ‘niche act’, failed to win the over the hearts of a nation with their Meat Loaf tribute act.

Mainly because we were all wondering what Elaine would do for all the other Meat Loaf songs.
Still, would have been nice to see his ‘Bat Out Of Hell’

And whilst Pop Idol reject Andrew Derbsyhire had us all miming along to his rendition of ‘Listen’ with our bottle of Soave, the judges were definitely NOT feeling it, feeling that his first performance was a lot stronger.

There was also an ‘unusual’ musical interlude during the results show, where last year’s finalists – Richard and Adam – sang a typically restrained interpretation of Elton John’s ‘Circle of Life’.

Helping them out on stage was famed shadow act and winners of the last series, ‘Attraction’ – who accompanied the song with some sort of vague story about a little girl who saw a giraffe and went to hospital.

Honestly; it made no sense to either us or our box of wine.

The all-important live final will be taking place NEXT Saturday – so make sure you’re glued to your tellybox, peeps.
