The Britain’s Got Talent judges all selected singers as their golden buzzer acts this year.
Once again David Walliams, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden each got to pick an act for the live shows at this year’s auditions.
And it turns out all four picked singing acts.
Amanda admitted: “It makes it super annoying, I didn’t realise we’d all pressed for singers. I’m annoyed about that! But it’s not my fault because I pressed mine first!”
Alesha added: “It’s really interesting that we’ve all gone for singers this year. The fact that I sing and dance I consciously make an effort to go for a golden buzzer act that people aren’t expecting.
“But you can’t deny what moves you and what makes you feel good. It’s interesting that even David has gone for a singer, I get it with Simon because he generally goes for singers, and Amanda’s got an incredible singer, so yeah, this year is battle of the singers!”
David Walliams said: “I hadn’t thought we’d all picked singers so I suppose it makes it more competitive. No one’s golden buzzer has actually won the show yet, so we will see! Ant and Dec got a really great magician but we all picked singers. I guess there’s a kind of euphoria which comes with music which is hard to match.
“If you pick the right song then the audiences are in a fantastic mood and you have a big moment. I’d quite like to have given it to a comic, but you don’t know what’s coming next, so you just have to go with your instincts in the moment.
“It’s a bit like your virginity; you can’t wait to get it over with because the longer you wait the more tense you get! So all the judges buzzed before we even got to Manchester, so I felt a bit sorry for the acts there!”
Britain’s Got Talent airs on Saturday 14th April, 8pm on ITV.
