The Britain's Got Talent 2020 finalists are revealed!

The Britain’s Got Talent 2020 finalists are revealed! Top 40 acts include a unicyclist, a ‘coven’, a contortionist and a keyboard-playing T-Rex… as the series returns after 4 months on hold amid the COVID-19 crisis

The final 40 Britain’s Got Talent acts have been unveiled, after viewers were forced to wait an unusually lengthy four months to find out who was through to the 2020 semi-finals.

Acts through to the final 40 include an American unicyclist, a frightening dance troupe called The Coven, a trio of hunky string musicians, a ‘sexy Doctor Who’ magic act and a keyboard-playing Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The series was ground to a halt this year thanks to the COVID-19 outbreak, which put a stop to TV and film production across the UK – and the rest of the world.

This meant the BGT auditions were filmed, but the series had to stop there, back in the spring. 

The auditions were aired from April-May, having been shot in the earlier months of 2020, but production was shut down as the UK went into lockdown in March.

This meant crowds could not gather for the live shows, the judges and hosts – Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, David Walliams, and Ant & Dec – were sent into lockdown, the crew packed up, and the contestants were sent home.

While normally the show airs its live finals and has crowned a winner by the start of the summer, 2020’s series of BGT has been on ice for months.

Debate: After bickering about keyboard-playing dinosaurs and terrifying contortion acts, the judges called each of the auditionees and told them who’d made the cut [pictured L-R are David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell]

Now, however, as production on TV shows begins to adapt in order to resume, the series has continued filming, and those eagerly awaiting news on whether they have made the finals have been told.

On Sunday, ITV aired the first episode in the series reboot, which saw the judges select their favourite acts to go through.

Bickering: Simon and David came to blows over several of the acts as they chose their top 40

Decisions: The show will continue through September and October and will follow the finalists as they’re whittled down, show-by-show

The show will continue through September and October and will follow the finalists as they’re whittled down, show-by-show. 

Simon, however, will not appear, as he has since broken his back over the summer.

The head judge is being replaced for the remainder of the series by Ashley Banjo, a former winner of BGT and now a TV personality, Dancing On Ice judge and star of dance troupe Diversity.
