Britain's Got Talent: Collabro and the other finalists

Collabro have been installed by bookmakers as favourites to win this year's Britain's Got Talent title.

After the five-piece's stunning semi-final performance on Monday night - when they automatically qualified for the June 7 grand final - bookmakers now have them in pole position.

It is, however, a 'false position' because not all of the semis have yet taken place. The act who have been regarded as their closest rivals, schoolboy rappers Bars and Melody, have yet to perform in their semi.

As the finalists are confirmed, we'll add their videos here so that you can see who Collabro, which features Carlisle's Matthew Pagan, are up against as they bid to secure the £250,000 cash prize and Royal Variety Performance place.
 

SEMI-FINAL ONE

Collabro

What the judges said: Simon Cowell said their performance was great. Alesha Dixon and David Walliams agreed it was perfection. Amanda Holden said they could be this year's winner.


Darcy Oake - magician

Wha the judges said: Amanda Holden said he'd commanded the stage during his act, in which he disappeared and turned into a cameraman. Simon Cowell said Oake had incredible stage presence.


SEMI-FINAL TWO

James Smith - singer

What the judges said: Giving him a standing ovation, David Walliams said his choice of song, Crazy, had been incredible. Alesha Dixon called him super talented. Simon Cowell said he had "nailed it".


The Addict Initiative - dance troupe

What the judges said: David Walliams said their Snow White themed routine was fantastic and really involving; Alesha Dixon said it was really powerful; Amanda Holden said it was a mini piece of theatre. Simon Cowell said they were the best dance troupe on the show since Diversity.


SEMI-FINAL THREE

Lucy Kay - singer

What the judges said: According to Simon Cowell, she saved the show. Amanda Holden said she had performed the most beautiful, haunting piece of music she'd heard in a long time. David Walliams said she had been faultless and was a ready-made star. Alesha Dixon also said she was a star.


Yanis Marshall, Arnaud & Mehdi - dancers

What the judges said: Simon Cowell said they were the cherry on top of one of BGT's nuttiest ever shows and their routine had been fun and entertaining. Amanda Holden said they were sexy and sassy. David Walliams added: "Sisters, that was fierce".


SEMI-FINAL FOUR

Bars and Melody - schoolboy rappers

What the judges said: Simon Cowell said they did an amazing job on a difficult song and added they were real, genuine and likeable. David Walliams said their performance had been "sick", wicked, hip hop and happening. Amanda Holden said her heart melted whenever she saw them on stage.


Lettice Rowbotham - violinist

What the judges said: Amanda Holden said the classically trained musician was a gifted bubblicious sexpot. Alesha Dixon said she was a bundle of joy. David Walliams added she had amazing stage presence and cheekily said it wasn't easy to walk down stairs while having a fiddle.


SEMI-FINAL FIVE

Jack Pack - singers

What the judges said: David Walliams called it the performance of fhe evening.


Paddy and Nico - dancers

What the judges said: Amanda Holden said they were something the Royal family would adore. Simon Cowell said he thought the public would vote them through.
