The huge array of acts consisted of singers, dancer, ventriloquists, and comedians.
One of the stranger acts came from Germany – an 11-year-old girl named Alexa Lauenburger and her eight dogs.
Alexa brought an intricate and highly-choreographed routine to the stage with her dogs to the tune of The Greatest Showman.
The act included the dogs working together to perform jumps, and even an eight-dog conga line.
It was so well received by hosts Ant and Dec that it garnered the much-coveted Golden Buzzer, sending Alexa and her puppy pals straight to the final.
However during Simon Cowell’s praise he seemed to snub a previous winner of Britain’s Got Talent.
The media mogul announced: “You at your age – to have that relationship with those gorgeous, gorgeous dogs is absolutely amazing.
“This is the best dog act I have ever ever seen!”
However fans of the show were quick to point out the other major dog act that has graced the stage with their paws: Ashleigh and Pudsey.
The duo won the competition back in 2012, and went down in history as the first dog act to win the competition.
Simon continued by adding: “This is one of the best acts we’ve ever had.”
Fans of the show were ecstatic over the act as well, as one wrote: “Well that makes Pudsey look right s**t!! (god rest his soul) #BGTChampions #Alexa #BGT.”
Another added: “B****y hell that German lass has put Pudsey to shame wow #bgt #BritainFirst #BGTChampions.”
Later in the show Jai McDowall returned to the stage to complete his act once again – but Simon recently told The Sun he had to apologise for slamming the act in 2011.
He told the publication: “I did feel when I saw him again that he’s the definition of a proud man.
“He didn’t sulk — he just came back to prove a point. And he did. I knew I had to apologise to him at that moment.
“It gave me a chance to say something publicly I should have said some time ago.
“But it was also the fact he had the guts to come back and compete, knowing I wasn’t that supportive the first time he was on the show.
Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions continues tonight at 8.30pm on ITV.
