10 Years of BGT: Bars and Melody go for gold

Perhaps some of the cutest contestants we’ve ever had on BGT, Bars (rapper Leondre Davies) and Melody (singer Charlie Lenehan) impressed Judge Simon Cowell so much with their anti-bullying song, that he pressed the infamous Golden Buzzer.

In a new feature introduced for series eight, this meant Bars and Melody automatically made the Semi-Final, with the duo eventually finishing in third place. Collabro went on to be crowned champions.

10 Years of BGT: Darcy Oake casts his spell

Magician Darcy Oake came all the way from Canada to audition for our Judges, bringing his good looks, charm and of course, some tricks to the BGT stage in 2014.

He went on to stun the crowd (with some help from some doves who turned into a woman), with David branding him “the best magician” he’s ever seen on the show.

10 Years of BGT: Attraction come out of the shadows

Back in 2013, Hungarian shadow theatre group Attraction won over the Judges with their first audition, performing a tragic love story routine to Emeli Sande’s Read All About It.

Their performance earned them a standing ovation and left Amanda in tears… even Simon was touched! Attraction went on to beat comedian Jack Carroll in the final.
