Britain’s Got Talent auditions have already begun for 2018.
It might only be October, but believe it or not the nationwide open auditions have kicked off around the UK.
Although judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon won’t be in attendance, these preliminary auditions offer successful hopefuls the chance to audition on stage in front of the judges at a later date.
Last year’s finalists Issy Simpson and MerseyGirls went along to Blackpool’s open auditions recently and spoke about how the show had changed their lives.
Magician Issy revealed: “I’m going to LA in just under two weeks – I’m going to do one of Ellen DeGeneres’ shows and I’m going to do my BGT audition trick but with a bit of a twist. I’ve also been signed up by Daniel Radcliffe’s agent…it’s been busy! I loved BGT; I really want to do it again! Practise makes perfect and confidence is the key thing that you need!”
“To anyone who wants to audition, we’d say, don’t give up on your dreams and even if you feel you can’t do it go and try anyway cause you get the experience,” the girls said. “We went thinking we weren’t going anywhere and now it’s changed our lives. We’re so grateful and dreams do come true!”
If you’re of any age and have any talent (honestly, they really do mean any talent) then the BGT producers want to hear from you. You can apply here, and below are the key locations and dates for the upcoming open auditions.
