BGT live: Who’s in the first semi-final tonight?

The line up for the first show has been announced

It’s time to get excited – the Britain’s Got Talent live semi finals begin tonight.

After weeks of auditions, judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden have chosen 35 acts to go through alongside the five Golden Buzzer acts who have already won their place.

And with the announcement the judges won’t get a say in who goes on to the final, there’s all to play for as the acts try to win over the public.

So who’s coming up first? St Patrick’s Junior Choir, the cute kids from Ireland are performing.

And we’ll also be treated to David Walliams Golden Buzzer act, singer Kyle Tomlinson, who impressed the judge after he previously told him he needed singing lessons.

Miss Treat Vibe’s cool rendition of Salt ‘n Peppa’s Whatta Man had Simon saying they “might be the greatest girl group” they’ve ever had on the show. Will he feel the same tonight?

And finally mind readers DNA stunned us all when they seemed to read Amanda’s mind, but it was the fact they managed to change their t-shirts at some point throughout the act without any of us noticing that really left us open-mouthed.
