‘BGT’ Finalists Revealed: Contestants React To Going To The Live Shows

Jill O'Rourke | Talent Recap

On Sunday, BGT: The Finalists Revealed featured the announcement of which acts from Season 14 of the show will be moving on to the live shows. The deliberations were filmed in February 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic put the season on hold.

The judges had to consider 200 acts who made it through the auditions, and narrow it down to just 40 semi-finalists. The show went through some of the most memorable acts of the season, and then shared which acts made it through to the semifinals. Find out who’s moving on below.

Watch this season’s “BGT” Golden Buzzer acts.

The first acts who went through were the Golden Buzzer acts. Each judge, plus hosts Ant and Dec, hit the Golden Buzzer for an act in the auditions, sending them straight into the live shows. These acts are as follows:

Simon Cowell: Fayth Ifil, a 12-year-old singer
David Walliams: Sign Along With Us, a choir that performs sign language
Alesha Dixon: Nabil Abdulrashid, a 34-year-old stand-up comedian
