Britain's Got Talent 2016 golden buzzers dominated by singers

britains got talent golden buzzers 2016

We've now met four of the five golden buzzers on this year's Britain's Got Talent and they're all singing acts.

Is it just us, or is it a bit annoying?

First to go through to the live shows was 12-year-old Beau Dermott, winning her spot in the semi-finals from Amanda Holden.

Alesha Dixon then pressed her buzzer for choir 100 Voices of Gospel while last week David Walliams hit the buzzer for duo Ian and Anne Marshall.

Tonight saw Ant and Dec rush forward to the judges desk, sending 14-year-old singer Jasmine Elcock into the semi-finals.

Now let's get one thing clear: All these acts are VERY talented and there's no denying that, but would it not be nicer for a little more variety?

While they're all quite different acts they are still all singers and yet we've had all sorts of performers over the past few weeks of the show more than deserving of the golden buzzer.

From Week 1 there were dog act Lucy and Trip Hazard as well as impressionist Darren Altman, then we met amazing dancer Jack Higgins and magician Richard Jones.

Most recently in this weekend's latest auditions, we saw try outs from Crossbow performer Ben Blaque and gymnasts Sam and Hector.

What's more is that - David's golden buzzer choice aside - the acts picked are ones that would've almost certainly sailed through to the live shows anyway.

We'd love to see more backing given to the niche acts, such as the magicians or comedians.

From what we're aware, Simon Cowell's golden buzzer is NOT a singing choice, so stay tuned for that...

Britain's Got Talent 2016 continues next Saturday night on ITV.
