Britain's Got Talent

Britain's Got Talent

Series 12 - Episode 8



At last — Britain’s Got Talent goes live. This is always the most fun, and unpredictable, part of the show (Simon Cowell once got pelted with eggs live on TV back in 2013). Every night this week, Declan Donnelly will be hosting solo as eight acts once again take to the stage. Voting then opens to the public and the two performers with the most votes go through to next Saturday's final.

The big question now is: who will win? At the time of going to press, the bookies’ favourite was magician Marc Spelmann. But, of course, that can all change.


Declan Donnelly hosts the first live semi-final of this year's contest, with the audition process having left judges Amanda Holden, David Walliams, Simon Cowell and Alesha Dixon with 40 acts to pick from. Tonight, eight of them will be performing live in the hope of impressing both the panel and the TV audience to win one of the two spots in the live grand final, where the winning act will receive a life-changing £250,000 prize and a spot at this year's Royal Variety Performance in November.
