An 11-year-old Mary Poppins and an urban dancing group make up the finalists for tomorrow's climax to Britain's Got Talent.
Bessie Curzons, complete with umbrella, prim red coat and cheeky smile, won the public's vote with her version of the musical's popular Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious number.
That left baton-twirling teenager Craig Wormsely, who had won over the judges with his demonstration of the finer arts of stylishly throwing a stick around the stage, facing a showdown against impressive dance group the Kombat Breakers.
Voting to decide which of the two acts would progress to the show's final on Sunday, judge Piers Morgan chose Craig while Amanda Holden went for the Coventry breakdancers.
That left Simon Cowell having to choose between his "heart" telling him to go for Craig and his "head" telling him to choose the Kombats.
In the end he went with his head, sending the six youth workers and students - aged between 25 and 13 - through to the final.
They take on ventriloquist Damon Scott and opera-singing mobile phone salesman Paul Potts. The 36-year-old singer wowed the audience in yesterday's semi-final and bookmakers are already offering odds on him taking this year's Christmas number one.
The winner of the series takes home £100,000 and will perform in this year's Royal Variety Performance.
