Britain's Got Talent 2015 spoilers: Simon Cowell hits the golden buzzer TONIGHT!

Golden buzzer

Simon Cowell hits his golden buzzer in tonight's opening Britain's Got Talent 2015 auditions.

The music mogul becomes the first to make use of the fifth button on the panel this year after it was originally added to the show last year.

Each judge, as well as hosts Ant and Dec, can use the golden buzzer only the once during the auditions, sending one act straight through to the live shows.

It was previously revealed that Simon hit his golden buzzer for a singer, with Simon telling the lucky act who got his backing: "You're more than a singer, you're an artist and that's why you got that [the golden buzzer]."

Despite hitting his golden buzzer for a musician, Simon insisted that this year's BGT had fewer singers than last year.

"There’s less singers this year. Obviously we know who’s in the finals," he said. “It was a bit top-heavy last year, but it’s more evened out this year, so we do listen.”

Proving that, some of the variety acts in tonight's opening episode include everything from cob player Narinder Dhanni and free runner Matt McCreary to contortionist Magdalena Stilova and football playing dog Yolo.

There's even a number of BGT firsts with a chicken agility act and a talking dog!

Britain's Got Talent 2015 airs from 8PM tonight on ITV.
