Paul Potts and Susan Boyle to compete in America’s Got Talent: The Champions final

But which Britain's Got Talent singer will come out on top in the all-star competition?

We love phone-salesman-turned-opera-singer Britain’s Got Talent winner 2007 Paul Potts. And we’re also huge fans of 2009 runner-up Susan Boyle.


But which is best? There’s only one way to find out: pitch them against each other in the final of America’s Got Talent: The Champions, an all-star spin-off that sees 50 winners and finalists from the various other Got Talent franchises compete to be crowned global champion.

Both singers are set to face-off in the competition’s final after Potts recently won his semi-final with a performance of Caruso. Boyle was previously fast-tracked to the contest’s finale after she received a golden buzzer from judge Mel B.

The two Britain’s Got Talent stars won’t be alone. America’s Got Talent singer Angelica Hale, AGT comedian Preacher Lawson, French extreme knife throwers Deadly Games and Spanish opera singer Cristina Ramos have also secured their places in the final. They’re set to be joined by another six acts.

Unfortunately, fellow British acts Courtney Hadwin and Ashleigh Butler, who won Britain’s Got Talent with her dog Pudsey back in 2012, have already been eliminated from the competition.

2014 Britain’s Got Talent finalist, Canadian magician Darcy Oake, and Roller Skating Duo Billy and Emily England who made it to the semi-finals of the 2009 competition, have also been knocked out.

In coming episodes we can expect to see 2013 Britain’s Got Talent winners – shadow dance group Attraction –perform once more, as well as 2017 winner, piano player Tokio Myers, child magician Issy Simpson and our latest champion, comedian Lost Voice Guy.


New episodes of America’s Got Talent: The Champions is available to watch on Wednesdays on Netflix in the UK
