When do the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent start?

The BGT live semi-finals air at 8pm on ITV from Monday, May 30, until Friday June 3, 2022.

Each night eight acts perform for viewer votes, with the most popular act heading straight through to the final.

The judges then pick who joins them from the next two most popular acts.

But if the judges vote falls on a tie, it goes back to the viewer vote, and the second act with the most votes then goes through to the final.

He received a standing ovation from the panel and audience, which saw him become the winner of the semi-final and secure a spot in the final show.

Talking about his performance, Alesha Dixon said: “You have this quiet inner confidence but with this beautiful humility. That was a remarkable vocal. You just blew the competition wide open.”

Amanda Holden added: “This is what Britain’s Got Talent is all about, finding people like you who might not have been found.”

School girl Abley had the judges and audience in stitches with her comedic performance.

David Walliams said she was his “favourite act of the week by a mile”, and said she was “so loveable” but applauded her “lethal” jokes which took aim at judge Simon Cowell.

Eva and magician Keiichi Iwasaki were in the top three, with only one space left after Tom got through.

Each judge then voted for their favourite, starting with David who backed Eva.

Alesha said: “It’s like picking between your two children… I’m going to save Eva.”

Amanda said: “Both these acts are extraordinary but for me there’s a clear winner and that’s Eva.”

With three votes, Eva will head into the final with Tom.
