Winnipegger Darcy Oake is through to the final of the U.K.'s hit talent show.

The illusionist wowed the judges once again on Monday and has moved through to the final stage of Britain's Got Talent, earning the nod when audience voting gave him the necessary nudge into the elite few who will compete for the grand prize.

Oake, whose original perfomance last month involved multiple doves, this time went the disappearing route, sitting in a chair, covered by a sheet, before disappearing, only to 'teleport' back on stage looking like the cameraman who appeared to be shooting the whole scene.

Oake got votes from judges Alesha Dixon and Simon Cowell, but needed a win from audience voting to advance to the next stage.

Oake's next challenge will be the final on Saturday with a chance to win approximately C$450,000 and a chance to appear in the prestigious Royal Variety Performance.
