Britain’s Got Talent returned with more talent, entertainment and laughter tonight. Members of the public have taken to the stage to show off their impressive talents including comedy, singing and dancing just to name a few.
The entertainment show took a year break but returned to screens this year with promises to be its biggest year yet. Tonight, Simon Cowell took his usual place at the judges’ desk alongside Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams, who dressed up as the missing Golden Buzzer at the start.
Tonight’s show was delayed by the result of the FA Cup Finals, which celebrated Liverpool’s win against Chelsea. The program warned viewers on Twitter: “Due to the #FACupFinal, #BGT will be on your screens a few minutes later than usual tonight! See you soon!”

How fans have responded to tonight’s auditions
A few minutes later, viewers were thrown straight into the show with the pantomime dame group Dame Nation singing and dancing to classic songs, they received a yes from all judges.
The second act was 14-year-old Eva, a stand-up comedian with cerebral palsy. The audience loved the routine as they continuously laughed and cheered Eva on stage. It was another successful audition as Eva made it to the next round with an ‘I love you’ by Simon Cowell.
Fans were quick to share their thoughts on Twitter. @ MrDeanR95 tweeted: “Absolutely loved Eva on Britain’s Got Talent tonight. Just shows that a disability does not make you stop living your life to the full. I’m going to love seeing her performing more stand up routines in the next round. Good on you girl !! #BGT #BritainsGotTalent “
While @daniemilyx tweeted “The girl with cerebral palsy on Britain’s got talent is amazing”
The next yes came for Tulga, the judges’ face dropped when the strongman hanging upside down, suspended from ropes, while holding the weight of a spinning, flaming beam attached to a chain held between his teeth.
However, some viewers were disappointed Tulga wasn’t based in the UK and traveled from the USA.
@ MK5678456 tweeted “Best act of the night and it’s not a British one #BGT #BritainsGotTalent”.
Another disappointed viewer also shared their thoughts, @WendyCherries tweeted “Not British got talent? Again? #BGT”.
@BlondeMzungu shared “There’s plenty of talented acts in the UK to entertain @ITV viewers & the royal family. We don’t need to fly anyone in from overseas #bgt”
@primetimemafia also agreed “Tulga” it’s the biggest stage in the world “. No pal, you got cut by the judges on americas got talent! #BGT”
Tulga wasn’t the only one who flew into London to attend the auditions tonight. Junwoo flew 20 hours from South Korea to show off his magic to audiences.
