It's almost time for the Britain's Got Talent live shows!


On Saturday 27th May, the last of the pre-recorded semi-finals will air on ITV1, meaning it won't be long before we see all this year's acts back on stage again!

Airing over a week, the semi-final live shows will see the Britain's Got Talent panel, which this year includes Bruno Tonioli who took over from David Walliams, returning to the stage to see the top acts from the auditions perform for a second time.

Each act will be hoping to secure votes from the public in a bid to be put through to the live grand final. The winning act will take home a whopping £250,000 and earn a spot at this year’s Royal Variety Performance, which will be attended by members of the Royal Family.

The semi-final live shows will air over the course of a week, with two acts going through each night until we have a total of 10 acts for the final.
