The Britain’s Got Talent 2020 semi-finals kick off tonight, after the show was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The show will look a little different, as there will be no live audience in the studio for the first time ever.
The semi-finals are also believed to be pre-recorded, to make it easier to follow the government’s rules regarding social distancing.
But regardless of the changes, it’s gearing up to be an entertaining show.
The 40 semi-finalists have been selected, and as usual the judges, and hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, have each selected a Golden Buzzer Act.
These are their favourites, and had a ticket straight to the semi-finals.
Here we take a look at all the Golden Buzzer acts.
Britain’s Got Talent 2020 Golden Buzzer Acts
David Walliams – Sign Along With Us
David Walliams hit his Golden Buzzer in the very first audition show.
He chose Sign Along With Us, a signing choir made up of people aged from four to 58, all from Manchester.
There are 37 children and 28 adults in the group, which was formed by 18-year-old Jade.
She started the group for her little brother Christian, four, who was told he may never talk again.
Simon Cowell – Fayth Ifil
In her audition, singer Fayth Ifil impressed the judges and the audience at home with her cover of Proud Mary.
The 12-year-old from Swindon started singing when she was eight, and has appeared in the West End.
Simon Cowell, who pressed his Golden Buzzer, said: “I love your personality. You talked about the support you’ve had from your mum and dad.
“Then you see the support you’ve had from 3,000 people and just to give you a little bit more support, I’m going to give you the golden buzzer.”
Ant & Dec – Jon Courtenay
Ant and Dec pressed their Golden Buzzer for the 46-year-old comedy singer Jon Courtenay.
The comedian from Manchester was one of the stand-out acts from the second audition show.
He performed an original song on his piano about auditioning for BGT, and his family.
Jon was joined by his wife and two sons own stage, and received a standing ovation from the judges and audience.
Amanda Holden – Sammy & Honey
Amanda Holden handed out her Golden Buzzer to the singing mother and daughter duo Honey, 14 and Sammy, 43, from Essex.
In their audition they started to sing She Used To Be Mine, but Simon stopped their performance.
He encouraged them to try something else, and they went for Freya Ridings’ Lost Without You.
Amanda was overcome with emotion, and hit her buzzer for the cancer survivor and her daughter.
She told them: “Every single lyric you sang just seemed so poignant to your story; it was just the most wonderful thing to witness.”
Alesha Dixon – Nabil Abdulrashid
Alesha Dixon was in no doubt when she hit her Golden Buzzer for 24-year-old Nabil Abdulrashid from Croydon, London.
He had her laughing her head off about the jokes about his name and religion.
After his performance, Alesha said: “That was so good, that was amazing on so many levels. It just felt right [to hit the Golden Buzzer]. Congratulations.”
She also described him as a “breath of fresh air”.
