Hampshire dancer Kai Widdrington missed out on his bid got Britain’s Got Talent glory last night.
The 18-year-old from Eastleigh was a member of the Latin dance troup Kings and Queens who performed in last night’s semi-final.
But they missed out on a place in the final despite glowing praise from three of the four judges on the panel.
Through from las night were salsa dancing pensioner Paddy and her partner Nico after the 79-year-old battled back from injury to impress the judges and public.
Sarah ''Paddy'' Jones and her Spanish partner Nicolas Espinosa had been forced to withdraw from the live semi-final after she injured her ribs during rehearsals.
But she was able to take to the stage after all, as the pair danced to Ricky Martin hit She Bangs.
Swing group Jack Pack won the public vote but judges picking the second act of the night to go through chose Paddy and Nico by three votes to one over 15-year-old singer-songwriter Bailey McConnell.
Jack Pack and Paddy and Nico join the winners of the four earlier semi finals in next Saturday's final - there are also plans for a wild card entry.
Through to the final from earlier semi finals are musical theatre boyband Collabro and illusionist Darcy Oake; teenage singer James Smith and 26-strong street dance crew The Addict Initiative; opera singer Lucy Kay and camp dancing trio Yanis Marshall, Arnaud and Mehdi; and classical violinist Lettice Rowbotham and teenage rap sensation Bars and Melody - 13-year-old Leondre Devries and his friend Charlie Leneham, 15.
Those in the final are hoping to win a prize of £250,000 as well as the spot at the Royal Variety Performance.
