Britain’s Got Talent


After weeks of captivating audiences with extraordinary and jaw-dropping auditions, Britain’s Got Talent draws closer to crowning its series 16 winner as the spectacular semi-finals get underway.

Each live semi-final sees the return of performers who previously wowed the judges in London and Manchester, in addition to our Golden Buzzer acts, which this year includes more than ever before.

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. Once more, Ant and Dec return to host the semi-finals.

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.


The acts performing on Wednesday’s show will be:


  • Toy Toy Toy: Yo-Yo artists Naoto and Shu performed a spectacular routine of yo-yo tricks. Ages 34 and 26 respectively from Japan.


  • Markus Birdman: Stand-up comedian Markus performed a hilarious comedy routine. Aged 53 from Essex.


  • Harry Churchill: School boy Harry performed an electrifying Queen medley on the guitar. Aged 11.


  • Notorious: Young dance group performed a cheeky school classroom themed routine to a medley of tracks. Ages 8 to 16.
