BRITAIN’S Got Talent: The Champions has finally kicked off on ITV, with an impressive line-up of international and local talent.
The revamped series sees some of the show’s most recognisable acts battle it out to be crowned the ultimate champion. Find out more about the below…
When will Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions be on TV?
The Britain’s Got Talent spin-off show continues THIS SATURDAY (September 7, 2019) at 8.30pm, with week two.
The series will run for six weeks – with this in mind the show is likely to end on October 5, 2019.
We know that the final was taped at Wembley Arena at the end of July.
Embarrassingly, the act who won the contest showed off their trophy outside the arena.
But we won’t spoil it for you, however, if you do care to know who’s won the show, a simple Twitter search will bring up the answer in no time.
How does Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions work?
Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions consists of former contestants from winners to Golden Buzzer acts and fan favourites.
This is the first time Britain has hosted a Champions edition of the show.
It is pre-recorded, filmed before the usual judges – David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and, of course, Simon Cowell – and a live studio audience.
So it’s the judges and “superfans” alone who decide the winner – no home voting!
America’s Got Talent: The Champions has already aired in the US across seven episodes.
The competition resulted in magician Shin Lim, winner of the thirteenth season of AGT, triumphing.
Who’s in the Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions line-up?
You can expect all your old favourites from BGT past to battle it out to take the ultimate crown.
You can get a list of who is taking part here, which includes Mersey Girls, Jai McDowall and Lost Voice Guy.
Sadly, BGT favourites Paul Potts and Connie Talbot were eliminated in week one.
However, sand artist Kseniya Simonova and Bello and Annaliese Nock made it through to the next round and are finalist of the first series.
More on BGT: The Champions
Susan Boyle was initially said to have been in talks to join but things fell through when the singer’s schedule clashed with the BGT filming dates.
Diversity were also approached for a position on the show but declined because they were also too busy to compete.
