Here’s a first look at tonight’s Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions as Kseniya Simonova performs.
Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions will begin tonight (Saturday, August 31) on ITV from 8PM.
It will bring together the most talented and memorable acts from past series of BGT as well as Got Talent series across the world.
The acts will compete in this supersized version of BGT, all trying to be crowned the ultimate champion and walk away with the cash prize and coveted Champions Trophy.
One of the acts we meet is Kseniya Simonova, a sand animation performance artist.
Kseniya rose to fame on Ukraine’s Got Talent, winning the show in 2009. She also recently made the final of America’s Got Talent’s Champions series.
You can watch a clip of Kseniya’s performance above, as she creates real time sand animations.
Will her impressive act be enough to win Kseniya a place in the final?
Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams return to the judging panel to offer up their opinions on the acts.
In Britain’s Got Talent Champions, each week will see two acts make it through to the grand finale.
The first is a Golden Buzzer act chosen by one of the judges or Ant and Dec while the second is voted through by superfans in the arena audience.
Alongside Kseniya, the first heat features BGT series one winner and multi-platinum selling artist Paul Potts, along with Simon’s Golden Buzzer from series 10 Boogie Storm.
Plus, there’s series 1 singer Connie Talbot – who first appeared on the show aged 6 – and daredevil father-daughter duo from America’s Got Talent, Bello and Annaliese Nock.
Completing the line up are Aussie duo The Nelson Twins, 2012 BGT winner Ashleigh Butler and her new dog Sully, illusionist The Sacred Riana and dance duo Bad Salsa.
Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions airs Saturday nights on ITV.
The acts who make it through the heats will go head to head in the grand final at the end of the series.
