Britain’s Got Talent 2011 Final Results: Who won? Jai McDowall!

Jai McDowall Britain's Got Talent


Well there we have it folks. This year’s series of Britain’s Got Talent has come to an end and Jai McDowall has been crowned the worthy winner. He will perform on the Royal Variety Show later this year and walks away with the £100,000 prize money.

In the earlier show some people really stepped things up and brought their act to another level – think Ronan Parke, Jai McDowall and Razy Gogonea – but some performers let nerves get the better of them and really disappointed us with their below par performances. We were particularly let down by New Bounce’s song choice and Jean Martyn’s awful singing.

On the results show Ant and Dec took a slightly different approach as they announced the public’s decision and revealed their identities, in the order of how many votes they attracted. So starting with tenth place, here is how the artists ranked:

10: Jean Martyn
9: Les Gibson
8: James Hobley
7: Steven Hall
6: Paul Gbegbaje
5: Michael Collings
4: Razy Gogonea
3: New Bounce
2: Ronan Parke
1: Jai McDowall

On hearing the news, young Ronan said:

I’ve loved it. I’d like to say thank you to everyone that voted. Thank you so much. Congratulations Jai as well.

An elated but shocked looking Jai stammered:

It’s absolutely amazing, absolutely fantastic.

Simon Cowell gave his opinion on Jai’s triumph saying:

He nailed the song, he came in believing he could win. I always trust the public’s decision and I think he’s a worthy winner.

But Amanda Holden was more subdued and disappointed for young Ronan. She admitted:

I’m thrilled for Jai, this is a massive night for him but I have to say that I wanted Ronan to win.
