It has been revealed today that Britain’s Got Talent 2014 will have a new twist involving a gold buzzer!
The twist will see a new gold buzzer added to the judge’s desk in the audition stages. The buzzer will be in the middle of the desk so that any of the judges can press it. Pressing the golden buzzer will see the act on stage straight through to live shows regardless of what the other judges think. The act will not only be guaranteed in the live shows but will also have a load of glitter showered on to the stage accompanied by music and lights.
However the Britain’s Got Talents judges, Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden will only be able to press the buzzer once.
“The idea is that if any of the judges absolutely love an act, they can press the buzzer once during the audition rounds to win them an automatic place in the live shows,” a source said today. They told the newspaper: “Given how there’s often a lot of disagreement on the judging panel, this is sure to stir things up.
“Last year Amanda and Alesha walked off set during auditions after Simon and David refused to vote for a dance act which they thought deserved to go through to the next round.
“If this happened again, one of the girls could automatically give the act a place. Also, David is known for championing some of the quirkier acts, much to Simon’s frustration — and will no doubt end up pressing it just to wind him up.”
The Britain’s Got Talent auditions 2014 start tomorrow in Belfast with the show set to return to ITV in spring.
