The singing Scottish granny sailed through last night’s semi-final to win a place in Saturday’s grand final of the ITV talent search, Britain’s Got Talent.
81-year-old Janey Cutler earned her spot in the final after winning the public vote. Joining her on Saturday will be dance duo Twist and Pulse who were put through after the judges were forced to choose between them and another dance act, The Fusion.
Despite having not been a fan of dance troupe The Fusion prior to last night’s show, Simon Cowell went against the other judges’ decision to send Twist and Pulse through to the final, saying The Fusion has given a better performance. But with two votes to one, Twist and Pulse booked their slot in Saturday’s final despite Cowell’s view.
However the star of the night was Janey Cutler who stole the show with her rendition of Shirley Bassey’s hit, This Is My Life. The pensioner looked distinctly altered from her first television appearance, this time arriving onto the stage with a hunky young man on either side. The mother-of-seven wore a glittery red dress with a slick of matching red lipstick to give her show-stopping performance.
The last semi-final takes place tonight where another two acts will be voted through to the grand final. The other acts joining Janey Cutler and Twist and Pulse to battle it out to become the winner of this series of Britain’s Got Talent include Spelbound, Tobias Mead, Mark James, Emile Harris, Tyler Paterson and Ice.
