Britain's Got Talent 2013 semi finalists: Simon Cowell teases final 45

Simon Cowell (Britain's Got Talent 2013 judges)

Britain's Got Talent 2013 judge Simon Cowell has teased this year's semi-finals, claiming the competition is wide open.

Tonight we'll see Simon and his fellow judges - David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden - pick which of the successful auditions are going through to the live shows.

Only 45 can make it and only ten of them can make it to the grand final two weeks from now.

Making the decisions there's tension between the panel, as David starts things off: "There are so many people here that could be potential winners, it’s tough this show isn’t it.”

And just when the four piece think they're done, Simon decides to make some changes, saying: "I think we’ve made some mistakes.”

Teasing the finalists, Simon said: “There were a few acts I didn’t think should go through but I got outvoted. So these semis are going to be very interesting.

“There are seven or eight acts with a real chance of winning.”

But Simon confessed he was disappointed by the total lack of animal acts this year, saying: "There have been some really weird acts this year. Unfortunately the worst have been the animal acts. I thought after Pudsey we’d get some brilliant animals but it has been a complete disaster.”

Meanwhile, the music mogul admitted that he was a tad nervous over what David would get up to during the live shows from tomorrow night!

He said: “David is erratic and you never know how he is going to behave.

“It’s like working with a horrible naughty schoolboy but that is part of the fun.”

Britain's Got Talent 2013 airs tonight on ITV from 8PM.
