'Britain's Got Talent' Has Won The BAFTA For Best Entertainment Programme
The Best Entertainment Programme Award at the 2018 British Academy Television Awards has gone to Britain's Got Talent.
It's not hard to imagine why - the number of performances every week are incredible and they managed to make us laugh, cry, spit our tea out in amazement and hide behind our hands.
Last year's winner was Tokio Myers, who was a pianist, drummer and remixer.
Tokio warmed the hearts of many with his rendition of Debussy's 'Clair De Lune' and Ed Sheeran's song 'Bloodstream'. His audition got a standing ovation from David Williams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.
His grand final performance, which included some of the music heard in the movie Interstellar, was also well received.
Before winning the top prize, he told the Sun: "Music and having that thing kept me out of a lot of trouble. I could have probably ended up in gangs, or been dead or in jail or whatever

"Looking at the people I grew up around, I've had people I went to school with who are no longer here today because they're either literally dead or in jail. It's still going on."
There have been a good few magicians on the show this year, but Magic Maddox is right up there with the best of them.
Basically, he took out his Rubik's cube and solved it in seconds, using only a few light moves, barely touching the thing, right in front of the judges.
I mean, managing to complete the Rubik's Cube without throwing it out of the window or into the bin is difficult enough, but doing it when the pressure is on and with such ease was bloody impressive work. But then he took it up a notch.
Using Cowell and Dixon he asked Simon to pick a colour on the Rubik's Cube, before that chosen colour disappeared from all but one side of another cube, in Dixon's hand.
She was pretty damn baffled by the whole thing, as you might expect. Obviously there has to be a rational explanation for it, but that doesn't really matter.
Needless to say, his performance earned him a place in the next round, fair play to him. Can't wait to see what happens next.
