Britain's Got Talent Live Blog: The Final Result
Who will win Britain's Got Talent 2011
How many great acts have we had tonight? At first I was gonna go for James Hobley, Michael Collings and Razy as my top three, but then I looked at the list and spotted another four that I'd put up there.
I'm guessing that the judges have Ronan in mind. Simon's betting on a singer but giving nothing else away and Michael agrees saying his choice was 'perfection', which is how he described the young man earlier.
Whoops! I can feel a media witch hunt on the way. Michael just slipped up and said he voted! Straight away the other judges pounce on him and McIntyre back pedals quickly. "Are we not allowed to vote? Oh, I didn't vote in this... I voted on the election... totally unrelated." Hmmm? Something tells me that he's gonna pay for that comment in the morning...

Here we go...
In reverse order, the results are:
10. Jean Martyn
9. Les Gibson
8. James Hobley
7. Steven Hall
6. Paul Gbegbaje
5. Michael Collings
4. Razy Gogonea
So the top three are:
In third place is... New Bounce.
The boys seem happy enough... they clap and smile, I think they're happy to get this far.
Jai and Ronan stand nervously.
Ant takes a breath... "The winner of Britain's Got Talent 2011 is...
Oh my God, I'm so shocked. It's well deserved but I'm so surprised that it wasn't Ronan. Something tells me he'll have a recording contract before the night is over.
Ronan thanks everyone who voted and the judges for their support. "And well done to Jai too..." Awww...
Jai is gobsmacked and so am I, I thought he'd shot himself in the foot with the song choice but it obviously went down a storm with the public (and the Scottish audience of course LOL!)
"I feel absolutely amazing. I can't believe it..."
Ant reminds him that he's just won £100,000 and will sing for the Queen, Jai nearly keels over! It's no surprise he won to be honest, he's a lovely bloke and so humble. The epitome of a gentle giant. To think it all started with one very nervous performance.
Simon says it is a shock result. "But Jai came out like he was a winner and nailed the song, he's a worthy winner."
Amanda agrees with Cowell's sentiment but adds, "I am surprised. I really did want Ronan to win it." Charming!
Do you agree with tonight's result?

I think Jai is a worthy winner, he has the most amazing voice although I did prefer his semi-final performance more than tonights. I still have his semi-final performance saved on the Sky+ and I keep watching it back, it was brilliant.
I thought Ronan was great as well and very sweet - he seems like such a lovely kid and I think he'll go far.
I thought Amanda was a bit rude though saying that she wanted Ronan to win, poor Jai - he'd just won the biggest talent competition (maybe in the world) and one of the judges says she prefers the runner-up!! How rude!!
I think Jai was a very worthy winner, beautiful voice.
I can see him take centre stage of a musical
Think the public got it right , well almost.
4th place Razi - really nice guy, great dancer, will do well.
3rd place New Bounce, shouldn't have been in the final, they fluffed their audition, and were asked to sing again....each act should have but, one shot.
2nd place Ronan - lovely voice, still young, and I hope the likes of SC allow him to grow up without too much pressure, and Simon was out of order bringing his mate into the show (Louis) to give his support for Ronan.
1st place Jai - Fantastic voice, he really did deserve to win, I hope he manages to find a good manage who will steer his career in the right direct, Simons comments sucked and shouldn't be given the chance to manage him. Think wisely Jai before you sign
Glad Ronan Parkes didn't win ;-)
Comeback when your voice breaks,the song he did tonite proved he was not that good .
Well done Jai you have an amazing voice been rooting for you since the start.....Well done Ronan for coming 2nd
Congratulations to Jai, if a singer has to win, let it be someone who has a bit more than a cute face. His strong mature voice immediately grabbed your attention.
Ronan is and will now be remembered as nothing more than Justin Biebers even more irritating little brother.
If anyone truly thinks he will have a future under Cowell, ask Leon Jackson, Shane Ward, Joe mcElderry & the dancer who won BGT 3 years ago, just how much he looks after them if they're not instantly a hit.
C'mon Ronan is 12 years old, girls wont buy his music since he's not someone to drool over, he needs to reach at least 16 before they do, guys wont touch his music full stop.
Go back to school kid, your dreams are over, be real people.
Well deserved Jai you have a fantastic voice and no one could touch you but the statement made by loo really bugged me "The Scots voted for Jai meaning that's why he won"
The thing that I really detest about this show is that it should be for adults only they should have a different show for kids and the Title of the show is Britain has talent and yet we are getting europeans coming into the show and if that is the case then they are going to have to change the title.
But as far as I am concerned the whole show is rigged anyway and the only reason that Ronan didn't win was because of the publicity that arose this week and that if Simon had put Ronan on the prediction it would have supported what had been said.
A credit to the winner, he is worthy!
Thanks to all the other acts for your contributions, a special thanks to Les Gibson who gave us all a medley of his raw talent which I must stress is absolutely sensational. Good luck for your future Les.
It is well seen that if the panel don't play the game of simon says they will be out of a job.
I sthat correct Cheryle??
So,here's how it's worked....Simon Cowell got found out that he and his 'Let's Fix the Vote' team' got found out.....They knew that Ronan (It's going to work because he looks like Beiber) Will win..........But,because it's been splashed all over the papers that they got found out it was fixed,they had to change the vote rigging at the last moment,just to make sure Cowell was'nt caught out fixing it all.................Now Cowell can say 'that the Public voted'.............WHAT'S TH BETTING THAT RONAN WILL MAKE THE MOST MONEY.......................Mega Scam !!!!!! xxxx
