What does the Golden Buzzer actually mean?

If an act is awarded the Golden Buzzer at the end of their audition, they are granted a place in one of the live semi-finals of the show.

This means they skip past the bootcamp stage of the competition, and they have more time to hone their act for viewers.

However, things changed this year.

Instead, all of the Golden Buzzer acts have automatically made it through to the final.

The talent was reportedly so strong this year that two acts received a Golden Buzzer on the very first day of auditions.

Britain’s Got Talent is on ITV, this Saturday (April 23), at 8pm.
