Will Simon Cowell find the next One Direction member on Britain's Got Talent?
Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams are returning to the Britain's Got Talent judging panel. Britain's Got Talent is the originator of the international Got Talent franchise and is one of the biggest television talent competitions in the world.
Hosts Ant & Dec are also back to guide the audience through the weird, wacky and wonderful talents auditioning. The show is open to any performer of any age, from any background, with any talent - all they need is a skill and star quality which they think will impress. Anything goes - from comedians to contortionists, dancers to drag acts and acrobats to animals.
Fans and followers of the franchise vividly remember underdog success story Susan Boyle, now a chart-topping artist who has sold millions of records worldwide. The series has also provided a platform for other artists such as Season 8 winner Collabro, who have gone on to achieve amazing success, securing a No. 1 hit with their debut album, Stars. They were crowned in front of a peak audience of nearly 14 million. The band has also started touring alongside fellow Season 8 finalist Lucy Kay, who released her debut album, Fantasia, last year, which shot straight to the top of the Classical Album Charts in the U.K.
Other success stories from last series include musical duo Bars & Melody whose single, Hopeful, reached number 5 in the U.K. charts in July 2014, and swing band Jack Pack, who are due to release their debut album this year.
As one of the biggest competitions in the world, BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT attracts hopefuls and hidden talents alike. Could Simon find the new member of international sensation One Direction this season? Tune in to find out!
