The first line up of contestants for tonight’s (Monday, 29 May) Britain’s Got Talent 2023’s semi-final have been revealed.
The BGT 2023 contestants were chosen by the judges earlier this month.
After acts auditioned for the panel all around the UK, a total of 40 semi-finalists have made the cut, including the golden buzzer contestants.
They will now perform in the live shows in the hope of securing an all-important place in the live grand final where a life changing prize of £250,000 and a spot on the bill of the Royal Variety Performance is up for grabs.
In the semi-finals the viewers will decide one contestant to go into the final while the judges – Amanda Holden, Bruno Tonioli, Simon Cowell and Alesha Dixon – will decide another.
