Amanda Holden terrified as she WALKS OFF after rat act and how to vote in semi-finals

BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT returns tonight for the live semi-finals as the star acts battle it out for a place in the grand final.

Ant and Dec will host the live show this evening where a handful of semi-finalists will put on performances that wow the audiences.

The general public will vote for their favourite acts, whittling it down to just two.

The decision will then fall into the hands of the judges, who will take it in turns to choose the winner.

The judges are made up of music mogul Simon Cowell, pop star Alesha Dixon, comedian David Walliams and actress Amanda Holden.

The final show will take place on Saturday evening.

  • Next up – Junwoo

    The Korean performer, Junwoo, kicked off his spellbinding act in his audition by seemingly making Alesha’s sunglasses vanish, before pulling out a never-ending stream of cards.

  • Just two more acts left to perform tonight

    There are just two acts left to perform tonight.

    Maxwell Thorpe and Junwoo will be performing after this break.

  • Jamie Leahey wows the judges as he sings with Chuck

    Ventriloquist Jamie and his puppet Chuck amazed Alesha who couldn’t believe he was just 13-years-old when he was last on.

    This time Jamie Leahey has once again achieved a standing ovation.

    Amanda said that he has brightened up the whole show and she would love to see this act on the Royal Variety show.

  • Amanda jumps from her chair

    Amanda Holden has leapt from her chair as the witch reveals a rat that was hiding underneath the box he had brought to the stage.

    Both Amanda and Alesha were too frightened to even return to their seats.

  • Simon looked horrified

    As the witch made its way off the stage and towards the judges, the camera zoomed in on Simon as he looked petrified.

    Alesha was even too nervous to reach in the witches bag and jumped back when she finally gathered the courage to do it.

  • The witches are making a return

    This act had the judges screaming last time they performed.

    Fans described them as the scariest act yet.

  • London Community Gospel Choir have ‘stepped up their game’

    How about that, what a show, what a performance.

    Simon has said that it was like watching a west end musical.

    The group, founded by Bazil Meade MBE, was created in 1989.

    Their website states they’ve appeared on The One Show with Dermot Kennedy and performed in the Live Lounge with Dermot Kennedy and The 1975, as well as Radio 2 In-Tune.

    They’ve also sung at the A Gospel Christmas in London with Gregory Porter and Beverley Knight, and A Gospel Christmas in Wales with Tom Jones.

    London Community Gospel Choir performed on stage at The Royal Albert Hall last year.

  • Fans all have the same complaint as Simon Cowell makes bizarre move

    Viewers took to social media in their droves to make the same complaint.

    Fans of the ITV hit weren’t impressed as Simon Cowell covered his ears in the opening moments of the first live semi final.

    Simon claimed he was covering his ears because he didn’t know who was in the line-up for the first live show of the series.

    He also said this was why he couldn’t turn around, as he wanted to be surprised.

    But fans cried foul and said they didn’t believe what he was telling viewers.

    “Give over, don’t chat s**t Simon,” one vented. “You know full well who’s on tonight’s show!”

  • ‘Smashed it’

    Simon has said Suzi was better than her first audition as her performances are always original.

    David has said Suzi smashed the performance as all of the impressions were spot on.

  • Suzi is one good impressionist

    Suzi managed to switch up her voices putting on a great performance that had the audience in stitches.

    She managed to go from Stacey Solomon to Alan Carr whilst switching back to the well known voice of Lorraine Kelly.

  • The third act to perform tonight is Suzi Wild

    Suzi has an impressive comedy CV – including making the finals of major national comedy competitions, voicing popular comedy podcasts and hosting a radio comedy show on OnFM.

    She was also a finalist in So You Think You’re Funny – a comedy competition at Edinburgh Festival.

    Contestant Suzi will pull some of her best impressions out of the bag.

  • Amanda Holden looks incredible as she flashes leg in sexy thigh split dress

    Amanda Holden’s daring BGT outfits never fail to get viewers talking – and tonight’s was no different.

    The sexy TV star thrilled fans when she took her place for the show’s live semi-finals and showed off her sexiest look yet.

  • Born to Perform had David dancing along from the beginning

    The dance group performed to a combination of songs including September by Earth, Wind & Fire.

    The dance act had all of the judges on their feet.

    David said he was so pleased for the group, and goes on to say that if they do not get through to the final on Saturday then he wil ‘leave the show’.

    Alesha added that the group, ‘full of personality’ are inspiring so many people around the world.

  • Next up tonight is David Walliam’s Golden Buzzer act – Born to Perform

    The joyful dance group is from Northampton with members aged 14 to 24.

    Born to Perform is a disability-inclusive dance group that features people with different disabilities.

    The dance school told The Sun that the experience was “the best day of ours and our students’ lives”.

    They said: “An absolute dream come true, pure magic.”

  • No BGT APP

    Ant and Dec have said there is no APP for viewers to vote on.

    All you need to do now is simply scan the QR code on the screen and vote for free.

    It couldn’t be any easier.

  • What a way to open the show

    Mel Day has once again got the audience moving with his musical opener.

    He took on the song, I Got You, by James Brown.

    Alesha said he didn’t put a foot wrong throughout the whole performance.

    Simon added that it was a brilliant start to the show.

  • First up tonight Mel Day

    Fans of the series were left enchanted by singer Mel Day who boasted a soulful voice and dance moves to match.

    The 77-year-old revealed he had been singing since he was a young boy, before affirming: “My dream is to win this show. That’s what I’m here for.”

    After his incredible rendition of Wilson Pickett’s Land of 1000 Dances, the pensioner received a standing ovation from all four judges.

  • What a performance

    The judges were welcomed to the stage alongside the cast of Moulin Rouge.

    The judges are delighted to be back with a live audience.

    Eight acts will perform each night with the hope of impressing those watching enough that they’ll vote for them.

    The judges will then choose between the two acts with the most votes who will make it through to the final.

  • BGT viewers call for ban on acts involving children

    Last weekend’s show had a slew of impressive acts, including nine-year-old Ryland, who performed a draw-dropping magic show, receiving yeses from the judges.

    However, some viewers feel it is wrong to have children perform on the show.

    One viewer said: “There are way too many kids on #BritainsGotTalent this year, they should have their own series and leave this to the adults. #BGT.”

    Perhaps these complaints could lead to a spin-off show!
