Have you noticed, there's always a woman with a dog? And a prepubescent singing earnestly? At least we have a vested interest this year in the form of Ryan O'Shaughnessy. He was voted straight through to the final during Thursday's semiers. Joining him, as well as a Wildcard, Aquabatique, Nu Sxool, Sam Kelly, Molly Rainford, the Loveable Rogues, Jonathan and Charlotte, Kai and Natalia, Only Boys Aloud and Ashleigh and Pudsey. They all have one simple aim: to follow in the footsteps of previous winners Paul Potts, George Sampson, Diversity, Spelbound and Jai McDowall by winning a slot at the Royal Variety Performance, as well as getting their hands on the £500,000 cash prize.
