I think I love Britain's Got Talent because of the variety! It is the only talent show I have constantly watched without missing a single episode. Did you watch it religiously like me? If not, then here are my favorite auditions of 2017.

BGT 2017

10 Alesha Dixon was looking worried during the first 20 seconds of this audition, but she didn't need to be! Johnny Awsum had already performed all over the world, with 1,000 shows to his name. You could definitely see that experience during his faultless display. Getting Ant & Dec involved made the entire routine and his song was catchy aswell, I found myself singing it the day after by mistake!
09 One of the most touching auditions this year has to be The Missing People Choir. Made up of people who have children and loved ones missing, their song 'I Miss You' was written by Peter Boxell. His son Lee vanished in 1988, aged 15. Not only is it a brilliant group, but their courage has to be commended.
08 Alzheimer's Disease is the most common cause of dementia, so it's no surprise that Harry Gardner's tribute to his Nan was well received. His touching lyrics were beautiful, and included "am I among the forgotten" and "I know you're there somewhere inside."
07 Aw! Young love is so sweet. Grace & Ali fell in love during a Performing Arts dance routine, and their audition was equally as sweet. They added acrobatics to the song Gravity by Sara Bareilles. Ali in a dancing group has previously won a Talent Show called Street Dance Stars on CBBC (which Alesha Dixon was a judge).
06 The most incredible voice you'll hear on this year's show. Sarah Ikumu's power and technique was something to behold! How is she only fifteen? Incredible! She also sung the same song as Louisa Johnson 'You're Going to Love Me', we all know what happened to her on X Factor - could history repeat itself?
05 Singing an original song is not easy, but Reuben Gray's Lifeline lyrics were catchy and his voice really unique. It was touching to see his Dad surprise him and shout out from the crowd aswell. This is what BGT is so good at, providing emotional family moments and reunions.
04 Mind Readers are fascinating, and DNA got me asking - how did they do that? I thought I had an answer about Amanda's trick, but then they did that to Simon and totally blew me away. It was a stunning audition, full of confidence and charm.
03 Comedian Matt Edwards said his act was 'variety', and so it proved! The old-style comedy was very funny and I really enjoyed his cheekiness throughout, especially his little Spanish chat and BGT voiceover. I really like something different, so I was overjoyed when Ant & Dec clicked the Golden Buzzer.
02 Another funnyman, this time Daliso Chaponda. His entire routine, even the build up before the audition was superb! The jokes about his Brother, being single, swapping objects and Britain being poor were class. BGT hasn't had a comedian winner before, and I hope Daliso is the man to do it!
1 This was an amazing first audition and by far my favorite performance. Not many people could make a piano exciting, but Tokio Myers did a superb score and added some breathtaking sound effect. It reminded me of when Lettice Rowbottam stunned Britain with her solo violin performances. Can Tokio do one better than Lettice?
