With the semi-finalists of Britain's Got Talent announced tonight, the competition to be crowned the 2014 winner is about to get serious.
Among the 45 acts remaining from the hundreds of auditions is 79-year-old Paddy Jones, from Stourbridge.
The retired great-grandmother is one half of salsa dance duo 'Paddy and Nico' and will compete for the £250,000 prize and the opportunity to entertain royalty - at the Royal Variety Performance.
Now living in Spain, she joined Nico's dance academy where she started dance classes and just a year later they teamed up to begin their acrobatic salsa act.
The pensioner astonished the celebrity judges in her audition - where her feet barely touched the ground - with Amanda Holden pressing her golden buzzer to put her directly into the semi-finals and describing her as 'inspirational'.
The first live show starts tomorrow night at 7.30pm on ITV.

Cowell chose to retire after that and shook the boy's hand before leaving the stage.
