Each live semi-final sees the return of performers who previously wowed the judges in London and Manchester, in addition to the Golden Buzzer acts.

This year sees brand-new judge Bruno Tonioli make his first appearance on the live-show judging panel, where he will be joined by Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon. Eight contestants will perform in each live semi-final. The first finalist is chosen via public vote and the second finalist will be chosen by the judges.

Following the five rounds, all successful acts will perform again in the grand final, where one will be named the Britain’s Got Talent 2023 Champion and walk away with both the life-changing £250,000 prize and that coveted place at The Royal Variety Performance.
