Ashleigh and Pudsey returned to Britain’s Got Talent for their final performance and ultimately took home the win.

Recently, the duo took to the stage, Ashleigh decked out in a leather outfit, Pudsey decked out in fur, and gave the audience a Mission Impossible-themed performance.

The performance managed to win over the public vote. The 17-year-old and her six-year-old dog beat out 10 other talent acts by winning 39 percent of the vote.

“A massive thank you to everyone that voted for me,” said Ashleigh after finding out she and her pooch won $800,000.

The competition was close and Ashleigh, from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire and Pudsey just beat favored Opera duo Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli, who took home second place in the competition with around 25.8 percent of the public vote.

While she wasn’t walking away with a massive check like Ashleigh, Charlotte showed no signs of disappointment. After finding out her team took home second place, she said, “Oh my God, we came second. It’s incredible.”

Only Boys Aloud, a Welsh male choir placed third with 15.8 percent of the vote while Loveable Rogues came in fourth with 5.7 percent.

While the vote was vital to Ashleigh’s win, the public wasn’t the only opinion that mattered. The judges too loved the dog act.

“I think Pudsey is training you. One of my favorite ever acts. You know how much I love dogs. I adore both of you Ashleigh and Pudsey. You’ve got better and better. What you’ve done is such a short time is a miracle,” Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell raved.

Judge David Walliams seemed to agree with Simon.

“I can’t believe you’ve come out here and done another new act. The nation has fallen in love with you and Pudsey,” he said.

A video of the impressive performance later went viral. “Watch Ashleigh and Pudsey the adorable dog act charm the audience and Judges in the BGT Final,” reads the YouTube video description. The video has garnered over 600,000 views since being posted May 12. Check it out.
