Britain's Got Talent 2017 judges

Britain's Got Talent 2016 is here and so is the return of the golden buzzers...

Once again each of the judges - plus hosts Ant and Dec - will have the opportunity to send one act straight through to the live shows right at the auditions.

And once again it seems as though there is quite the varied selection of acts.

For Ant and Dec, it's a singer.

"When she walked onto that stage, I don’t think anybody expected that big and beautiful voice to come out of her mouth," Ant teased. "We were stood on the side of the stage with her father and he was just bursting with pride.

"Then we looked out at the judges and every single one of them had a huge smile on their faces - even Simon! Alesha was in tears and the audience’s reaction was like nothing we had experienced that day. We had to press our buzzer, she was just amazing and we can’t wait to see what she does in the live shows."

Alesha Dixon has backed a choir, which annoyed Simon Cowell who wanted to hit the golden buzzer for the same act.

He said: I wasn’t thinking too much about it and then as soon as she pressed it I just thought, ‘Oh God, I would have liked that choir’.

"That’s the kind of competition element there is between the judges, we all want to buzz for the best one. I would have buzzed if she hadn’t because they were fantastic."

The singing acts appear to have once again dominated as Amanda Holden pressed her golden buzzer this year for a young child.

"I am a real sucker for kids and for musical theatre," she said. "She came on and she sang Defying Gravity from Wicked, which is an incredible musical.

"I kept thinking that I really wanted to press my buzzer but we had only been doing the show for a day, we were in Liverpool and we had everything ahead of us so was this going to be the right thing?

"It was my heart telling me to do it, you can let your head interfere with your life all the time, I don’t and I am always in trouble because of it, I listened to my heart and pressed the buzzer and I don’t have any regrets. Although I have to say there have been a number of times since that I have gone, ‘Oh my god, I would have pressed my buzzer for that’ because it’s been an incredible year."

Amanda added: "Alesha’s buzzer could win the show, it’s amazing."

Ant and Dec concluded: "I think the people the judges pressed their Golden Buzzer for say a lot about the judges. If you put the acts and the judges in a room, you’d be able to match the talent to the judges quite easily.

"That’s good though because that means they’ve gone for people they really believe in and who they can support and get behind for the rest of the series."

Britain's Got Talent 2016 starts this Saturday night on ITV.
