Britain's Got Talent 2015: Simon Cowell slams 'boring' opera acts

Simon Cowell has had enough of opera acts on Britain's Got Talent 2015.

Following his rant against guitar playing Ed Sheeran wannabes, Simon has now taken aim at classical singers.

That, and AWFUL dog acts.

He said: "The dog acts, when you've had an act as good as Ashley and Pudsey, they were really good, when you have some of the dog acts this year, it's not just that the dogs aren't very good, the owners are terrible. They're just really boring.

"I also think there's a lot of people now who think I'm going to sing Opera that were going to jump out of our chairs and we're not, unless you're AMAZING. And I think the audience at home feel the same way."

Speaking ahead of the new series, which begins on Saturday night, Simon also admitted he sometimes feared that Britain really would one day run out of talent.

"I always wonder whether, one day, literally no one talented is going to turn up. I thought that after year one, if I'm being honest," he said. "The truth is, there is a lot of talent in this country and I think the positive thing about the show is that it's got people to create acts just for the show.

"If you take an artist like Diversity, without the show there wasn't anywhere for them to go and I think they would have remained just a dance group without a platform. Off the back of the show, they've made a movie and they've done arena tours.

"Now I get told people put together acts specifically for the show, so it's created an outlet for talented people of all ages. So I think there will always be enough talent. And do you know what? You only need one great act!"

Britain's Got Talent 2015 starts this Saturday night at 8PM on ITV.
