Viewers now know all the Golden Buzzer acts on Britain’s Got Talent 2019, but what exactly does it mean?
BGT judge David Walliams was the first to pick his Golden Buzzer audition, which sees confetti drop from the ceiling when the button is pressed at the end of an audition.
But what does it do, and who are the Golden Buzzer acts for 2019? Here’s what we know so far…
What is the Golden Buzzer?
If an act is awarded the Golden Buzzer at the end of their audition, it grants them a place in one of the live semi-finals of the show.
This means they skip past the bootcamp stage of the competition, giving them a head start.
The Golden Buzzer is pressed by a judge or host when they decide they want a particular audition to go straight through to the live shows.
Many of the past BGT Golden Buzzer acts have also made it to the final.
Who gets a Golden Buzzer act?
Hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly share their buzzer, while Britain’s Got More Talent host Stephen Mulhern doesn’t get to press it at all.
Who are the Golden Buzzer acts for 2019?
David’s Golden Buzzer act was a group of school children and their teacher from Flakefleet Primary School, aged 5-11 from Lancashire.
Simon Cowell was second to press it, handing the buzzer to comedian Kojo Anim.
Ant and Dec were next to press the buzzer, awarding it to 13-year-old dancer Akshat Singh.
Alesha Dixon pressed it for 10-year-old schoolgirl Giorgia Borg .
Finally, Amanda Holden chose teen band Chapter 13 for her buzzer.
Britain’s Got Talent 2019 continues Saturday nights on ITV.
