    Octogenarian through to BGT final


    by ODN


    Teenage body-poppers Twist & Pulse and 81-year-old singer Janey Cutler have made it through to the Britain's Got Talent final.

    The octogenarian singer won over the viewers with a belting performance of Shirley Bassey's This Is My Life to top the public vote.

    But Twist & Pulse had a nervous wait before the judging panel opted for them over fellow dance act The Fusion in a split decision for the runner-up spot.

    The acts will now take their place among the other lucky hopefuls vying for the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.

    Ms Cutler was speechless after being told she had won the popular vote.

    Twist & Pulse promised more "surprises" after judge Amanda Holden put them through with the deciding vote.
