Britain’s Got Talent announces changes to this year’s live semi-finals

Britain’s Got Talent 2018 semi-finals air next week on ITV, and this year has some changes to the format.

After thousands applied and hundreds auditioned, the Britain’s Got Talent search has now reached the live semi-finals which will kick off on ITV this Monday.

Each night eight of the final 40 semi-finalists will perform live in the hope of impressing viewers at home and winning the all-important public vote.

Two acts from each night’s show will make it into the live final on Sunday 3 June, with a chance of winning a life changing £250,000 and a spot at this year’s Royal Variety Performance.

But this year it won’t just be down to the viewers. The act with the highest public vote will automatically go into the final while the judges will decide between the second and third placed acts as to who will join them.

On last night’s first live Britain’s Got More Talent show Stephen Mulhern exclusively revealed some of the guest performances viewers can expect to see across the week.

The live week is set to go off with a bang with BGT superstars Diversity on Monday’s show while the magical cast of Matilda The Musical will also perform.

Throughout the week viewers will also be treated to the musical stylings of Alfie Boe, pop princess Rita Ora, the fabulous cast of Chicago the Musical and reigning BGT champion, musician Tokio Myers.

Britain’s Got More Talent, also live, airs each night on ITV2 at 10pm.
