Dancing duo Grace and Ali are back on our television screens in tonight’s semi-final of Britain’s Got Talent.

Now they need your vote to help get them through to the show’s grand final.

This weekend saw the pair among the final 40 chosen to progress to the lives stages of the popular TV talent contest.

Tonight the Stockton Riverside College Performing Arts students return to the stage. But this time it is the audience at home that they need to impress.

“This is such an amazing opportunity,” said Ali, 16, of Hartlepool.

“We have been working really hard and training every day ready for this performance.”

Putting together a brand new contemporary dance, the pair’s performance will go under the scrutiny of celebrity judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.

But it is the public vote that will decide which two acts get a place in Sunday’s grand final.

“We are so excited, it will be such a different experience doing the live show,” said Grace, 17, of Ingleby Barwick. “Everyone will see it there and then. We have made our routine really special. We couldn’t do anymore.”

Now the pair can only hope that the public will show their support and vote for them tonight.

The winner of Sunday’s grand final will receive a cash prize and the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.

Britain’s Got Talent is on ITV1 at 7.30pm tonight.
