FANS of Britain's Got Talent have been awaiting with anticipation for news of the show's return.
The final of the talent show should have aired in May, but the coronavirus pandemic put a spanner in the works – delaying the grand final until October.
When will BGT return?
Catch-up programme Britain's Got Talent: The Finalists Revealed will air on ITV TONIGHT August 30 at 6.30pm showing the judges making their decisions.
After that, the competition will continue with five pre-recorded semi-finals airing from Saturday 5 September at 8pm.
The judges will then choose one act from each show to go through to the final, and the public will have the chance to vote for another once the episode has broadcast.
The grand final be shown live in October.
Auditions for Britain's Got Talent 2020 were held earlier this year before the coronavirus crisis and shown in spring.
The live finals were delayed in May because of the pandemic, and the show had to be postponed mid-series.
Who will be on the judging panel?
As usual, Ant and Dec will host the semi-finals of BGT.
Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams will all be returning as judges.
However, many fans will be devastated that main judge Simon Cowell will not be returning along with them, since he is still recovering from his bike accident in Los Angeles.
Instead, Diversity's Ashley Banjo has stepped in for Simon, more than ten years after his dance group won the show.
The prize for the winner remains the same – a life-changing £250,000 plus that coveted role on The Royal Variety Performance.
Who are the golden buzzer acts?
Simon gave his golden buzzer to 12-year-old singer Fayth Ifil.
Fayth is from Swindon and started singing when she was eight years old.
Her cover of Tina Turner’s Proud Mary wowed the both audiences and the judges.
Ant & Dec hit the golden button for comedy singer Jon Courtenay.
In his audition, Jon performed a hilarious song he had written about auditioning for Britain's Got Talent and his family.
Jon received a standing ovation from the audience.
Sign Along With Us
Choir Sign Along With Us was David Walliam's choice.
The signing choir from Manchester is made up of 37 children and 28 adults.
They performed a heartwarming cover of This is Me from The Greatest Showman.
Alesha Dixon gave her golden buzzer to Nabil Abdulrashid.
Nabil is a comedian from Croydon.
After his stand-up comedy routine impressed the judges, Alesha called him 'a breath of fresh air.'
Honey and Sammy
Amanda Holden gave her golden buzzer to Honey and Sammy.
Honey, 14, and Sammy, 43 are a mother-daughter duo from Essex.
They performed Freya Ridings' Lost Without You at their first audition and after a rocky start, the pair wowed the judges.
How will social distancing work?
Some acts in the semi-finals will take part remotely via video in order to abide by social distancing rules.
Others will perform in the TV studio without a live audience.
ITV revealed they are opting for a remote crowd who can join in from the comfort of their own sofa.
