Amanda Holden says she wants Britain's Got Talent judges to mentor acts like The X Factor

Britain’s Got Talent star Amanda Holden has told the News Of The World that she wants to see the show become more like The X Factor. Amanda suggested that the judges should have a far more hands on role with the acts, mentoring them throughout the live shows.

"I think Britain's Got Talent will go on and on," Amanda explained.

"Every year I think people are going to run out or there will be a lack of imagination, but every year there's an act we've never seen or someone thinks outside the box.

"But a good change I would like to see is each judge to mentor people - like David Hasselhoff to look after nutty acts, Michael McIntyre the children and Simon the dancers.


"It would add a different dimension and I think there's room to improve and develop it."

Meanwhile Amanda said there was more variety than ever in this year's Top 40, but she still expected a young singer to be crowned winner. "More than ever in the last five years we have had a lot of variety," Amanda told the newspaper. "I'd love something out of the ordinary win, but I don't think that will happen - and think we will see a young singer take the title.

"Music always wins through on these shows and if you pick the right track it gets into people's souls."

Britain's Got Talent 2011 continues tonight at 7:30PM on ITV1 with the final audition show and the reveal of the Top 40 acts!
