This Saturday we’re having a night in to tune into ITV as viewers will witness a show of epic proportions including performances from ten finalists and a very special guest performance presented by world renowned theatre producer, Cameron Mackintosh. Hosted by Ant and Dec, the grand finale of Britain’s Got Talent will take place at 7.30pm as finalists hope to win a life-changing £250,000 prize plus that coveted spot on the bill of the Royal Variety Performance.
Viewers will be wowed by performances from the brilliant combined companies of Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables – The Staged Concert. After seven months of total shutdown, 60 performers have come together to conjure up the dazzling lights of the West End including Michael Ball, Matt Lucas, Carrie Hope Fletcher, John Owen-Jones, Shan Ako, Killian Donnelly, Zizi Strallen and Charlie Stemp. This special performance coincides with Les Misérables 35th birthday and The Phantom of the Opera’s 34th birthday.
Cameron Mackintosh said: “Britain’s theatrical talent is the best in the world so it is a wonderful opportunity after seven months of enforced lockdown to be invited by Britain’s Got Talent to showcase three of my greatest British musical hits with their fabulous West End casts all bursting to perform again and remind audiences what an unforgettable thrill it is to enjoy the exhilaration of a live show. Several years ago, Susan Boyle Dreamed her Dream and set the world alight and we are both eager and anxious to be told when we can fully reopen again next year so that we can all properly get on with our lives and celebrate the world beating talents of our amazing culture.”
