It was 'D-Day' today for the successful Britain's Got Talent 2012 auditioneees, as the judges decided who would be making the live shows.

Thousands applied and auditioned for the new series, which will see one act walk away with a massive £500,000 cash prize in a grand final.

But in order to get to the live shows, the wannabes had to first get at least three yeses from this year's panel of judges, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.

Around a hundred made it, but with only limited spaces in the live shows, the panel today decided who to cut and who to keep.

Posting a picture of himself and fellow judge Alesha in front of the budding performers, David Walliams tweeted this afternoon: "It’s deliberation day today.

“I hope we BGT judges make the right choices."

Hosts Ant and Dec added: “Today, judges decide on and reveal the semi finalists. On our way to chat to the acts"

Auditions for Britain's Got Talent 2012 will air on ITV1 in March, with the short list revealed in May.
