Dancing dog Chandi wins BGT final slot

Boy band Connected and dancing dog act Tina and Chandi have been named as the second two acts to go through to this year's Britain's Got Talent final.

The dancing rescue dog Chandi secured an automatic finalists' place after scoring the highest number of viewers' votes among the eight acts performing in the second live semi-final.

Judges Piers Morgan, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell then selected Connected over fellow runner-up Frank Sinatra impersonator Neil Fullard to take the second final spot.

Tonight's show will see a classical music group, a singing accountant and six other acts go head to head for two spots in Saturday night's final.

The Arrangement, a music group from Cambridge, wowed the judges by performing a classical version of Black Eyed Peas hit I've Gotta Feeling during their audition.

They will compete against 10-year-old singing sensation Chloe Hickinbottom, who has already gained momentous support online. The video of her audition has been watched almost 1.6 million times on YouTube.

Other acts on the show include street dance act Peridot, impressionist Paul Burling and 28-year-old accountant and singer Christopher Stone.

One performer will gain an automatic spot in the final when they secure the most votes from the viewing public.

Judges Piers Morgan, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell will then select their favourite act between the two closest runner-ups.

Each night this week, the 40 semi-finalists are being whittled down in live shows until the remaining 10 battle it out in Saturday's final for a chance to appear at the Royal Variety Performance.

The two acts which get through will join boy band Connected, dog dance act Tina and Chandi, gymnastic troupe Spelbound and street dancer Tobias Mead in the final on Saturday night.

The first part of the live show starts at 7.30pm on ITV1.
