The twelfth series of Britain’s Got Talent, a British talent competition series, began broadcasting in the UK during 2018, from April 14 to June 3 on ITV. The live episodes were screened from Hammersmith Apollo and presented by Declan Donnelly only for this series. At the same time, Anthony McPartlin suspended his TV commitments on March 19 2018, and he still showed in the audition episodes as these had generally been filmed in January and February earlier that year.
This series featured a higher number of members for the judges to choose semi-finalists from associated to previous years, not counting those who received the Golden Buzzer and saw the return of the Judges’ Vote to the show’s format.
ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent rounded off the semi-finals tonight (October 3) finally, and now we have a full list of 2020 direct finalists. The last contenders presented for judges Amanda Holden, David Walliams, Ashley Banjo and Alesha Dixon. Still, only one could be directly sent through without the help of the public vote.
Comedian Nabil Abdulrashid got the judges’ vote and will currently conflict in position to dance duo Aaron & Jasmine, comic singer Jon Courtenay, magician Magical Bones, and comic juggler Steve Royle for the best price in the end.
Scattered around Nabil’s performance tonight were the various acts: singing duo Soldiers of Swing, magician and self-proclaimed “king of birds” Hakan Berg, gospel choir/rap fusion Shalom Chorale, huge unicyclist, Wesley Williams, drummer Crissy Lee, young magician Aidan McCann and singer-songwriter Beth Porch.
Every one of them influenced the judging panel in their way and, alongside the acts from the previous semi-finals, now faces a chance of joining the confirmed finalists via the public vote.
Realizing his exciting future, Nabil could be seen yelling: “SOUTH LONDON!” before noting: “It’s been almost a big year, this differs everything, and it is not just me, a whole bunch of people only got made happy.
“So thank you. I appreciate it, I appreciate the opportunity.”
