Britain’s Got Talent final 2019: Policeman Dave reveals the Queen stayed up late after watching his first audition with dog Finn to sign off ‘Finn’s Law’ to protect service animals… as action-packed show kicks off
Britain’s Got Talent’s 2019 finale kicked off on Sunday night, after a week-long run of live semi-finals that saw the likes of war veteran Colin Thackery, comedic singer Siobhan Phillips and three magic acts battle it out for the winning accolade.
With Ant & Dec presiding over the final at the Apollo in Hammersmith, London, judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden took their seats to watch their finalists compete to be named the 2019 champions of the long-running talent series.
Kicking off the show was policeman Dave Wardell and his service dog Finn, who performed a magic trick, having previously demonstrated that Finn could read minds.
In the trick, he asked David to pick a card from a deck and Alesha to select a photograph from a scrapbook. He asked Amanda to write down a random word, to describe Finn.
Dave then revealed that, ahead of the live episode, Finn had already ‘predicted’ that David would pick the seven of spades, Alesha would select a photo of a beach and that Amanda would write down the word ‘incredible’.
