Britain's Got Talent

That's all folks! We look back at another incredible BGT journey

As the curtain fell on yet another magnificent series of Britain's Got Talent, we relive some of the moments that made 2015 the BEST EVER!

But without further ado, how incredible was this year's BGT winner Jules O'Dwyer and Matisse! You were absolutely PAWESOME!

And, of course, a big shout out to Jamie Raven, who came in a close second, and the mighty Côr Glanaethwy who bagged third spot in this year's final.

All of our 12 amazing finalists put on an exemplary show. "It was one of the best series we’ve done," said a proud Simon Cowell.

It's been an extraordinary journey - and to think, it all began with comb-playing IT consultant Narinder Dhani from London!

Our first show of the series was a memorable night for other reasons, too. Billy and Emily England's jaw-dropping roller-skating act left our Judges open-mouthed, which is where they stayed when Parisian ventriloquist Marc Métral and his talking dog Miss Wendy took to the stage. We've never seen Simon so happy!

And, of course, it was the night we met Welsh wonder-choir Côr Glanaethwy and Simon's golden buzzer act, singer Calum Scott, who began their incredible journeys to the BGT final.

It was a particularly heart-wrenching night for Calum, who watched his sister voted off just moments before he went on stage.

Calum stormed through the semi-finals but was left disappointed after momentarily stumbling over his words in the final, although he finished on a high note.

A cute-as-a-button nine-year-old girl wielding a samurai sword got our second show of the series off to an electrifying start!

Our awesome foursome - we're gonna miss you lovely lot

Jesse-Jane McParland turned to martial arts when she discovered she didn't like ballet, and bagged herself a spot in the final when she was voted through following the first ever public wild card vote. "You wouldn't mess with her would you," said Simon following her fearsome audition

We were also introduced to singers Becky O'Brien and Henry Gallagher, both of whom wowed the Judges with their amazing performances in the audition and the semi-finals.

Young Henry melted the audience's heart when he revealed he wrote his song Lightning for a girl he has a crush on - although we never did find out who...

Jamie Raven was our worthy second place finalist in 2015, and achieved the impossible - he made Simon believe in magic - and even produced a helicopter on the BGT stage during semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Jeffrey Drayton's puppet Chantel didn't want to go in the cannon (a hilarious catchphrase we'll never forget!), but it was singer-songwriter Paul Manners who provided one of the funniest moments of the series.

His catchy ditty I Wanna Hold You may not make the top 10 (in this country at least) any time soon, but our Judges (with the exception of Simon) were having a great time dancing along. David even vowed to sign him to his hastily-created record label - DW Records. Watch this space people!

And, of course, who can forget Krystyna and Princess the Hypnodog? Well, perhaps Simon... after the persuasive pooch sent him into to hypnotic stupor.

Amanda's golden buzzer act, choir Revelation Avenue, and BGT finalist Isaac Waddington were pure class meanwhile, and semi-finalists IMD Legion tore it up with an electrifying dance routine, wowing Alesha, who'd already pressed her golden buzzer for Essex dance troupe Entity Allstars.

The young dance crew's Harry Potter-themed routine in the semis bagged them a well-deserved place in the final, while Ant and Dec's golden buzzer act, five-piece dance troupe Boyband, snapped up the Judges' wild card, and gave it their all during an elemental-themed routine.

Speaking of classy, young contemporary dancer Jonathan Lutwyche had everyone enthralled during his outstanding audition and semi-final performances, narrowly missing out on a spot in the final.

More humorous moments followed in the fourth show of the series when rock-singer Aaron Marshall left our gorgeous gal Amanda horrified by his heavy metal rendition of Let It Go, while bonkers variety act Peter Lambert brought plate spinning and axe juggling to the BGT stage.

Family vocal group The Neales were in perfect harmony, going all the way to the final with their smooth performance.

There wasn't a dry eye in the house following their emotional rendition of Father and Son by Cat Stevens in the semi-finals - even the awesome foursome were reaching for their hankies.

There were more mighty vocals later on in the series from Alison Jiear, Ella Shaw, The Kingdom Tenors, Emma Jones and Gracie Wickens-Sweet - all of whom gave incredible semi-final performances, but sadly missed out on a place in the final.

There was good news for Mitch and Cally The Wonderdog though. The plucky pooch managed to set a new world record for the fastest time for a dog to pop 100 balloons during their semi-final performance.

And, while we're on the subject of dogs, how could we forget to give another shout-out to our fabulous BGT winner - Jules O'Dwyer and Matisse - the seven-year-old border collie, who melted the nations' hearts.

For his winning final performance, Matisse even managed to walk on a tightrope and was joined by his bestie Skippie for the performance of the series.

What an epic year - proving, yet again, that Britain's Got TALENT! And then some.

Until next time lovely people...
