Britain's Got Talent 2015 auditions: Simon Cowell presses golden buzzer!

Golden buzzer

Simon Cowell pressed his golden buzzer at Britain's Got Talent 2015 auditions in Manchester.

The special buzzer has made a return for this year's series after its debut on the show last year.

When pressed, the buzzer sends whatever act is on stage at that time straight through to the live semi-final shows.

Each judge - as well as presenters Ant and Dec - can only press the button once during the auditions.

Last year the boss chose Bars and Melody, who eventually finished third in the final, and it was another singing act for Simon this year.

He became the first judge to hit the buzzer at try outs on Thursday for a singer with a "perfect" voice.

Ant and Dec meanwhile hit the golden buzzer during the very first day of try outs in Edinburgh last week.

“The talent’s good, the talent’s really good, and we’ve pushed our golden buzzer already," Ant said at the NTAs last Wednesday night. “We got in there early – a really good act, actually. I think it’s fabulous.”

Dec added: "Last year we waited until the last session of the last day to push our golden buzzer. We weren’t getting caught out with that again!

“We pushed it on the first session of the first day. They’re a great act. But a really good level in Edinburgh. [It’s] Manchester next, so we’re very excited.”


The BGT auditions continue filming auditions in Manchester over the weekend with the series back on TV in the Spring.
