How do the Britain’s Got Talent live shows work?

Each night, eight of the the final 40 semi-finalists will be performing live in the hope of impressing the viewers at home and winning the all important public vote.

This year it won’t just be down to the viewers. The act with the highest public vote will automatically go into the final while the judges will decide between the second and third placed acts as to who will join them.

They will also be joined in the final by an eleventh wildcard act chosen by the judges.

In the final, the winner will be the one with the most public votes.
