From a hypnotising dog to a girl with a hula hoop that defies gravity, a burlesque troop with a twist and a woman singing about her love for eggs, it can mean only one thing... Britain's Got Talent is back!
Returning to our screens with the king of entertainment Simon Cowell, the joker of the pack David Walliams, alongside the one who's seen it all, Amanda Holden and the queen of cool, Alesha Dixon, the popular judging panel have been stunned, entertained and moved to tears on their hunt for the best talent around.
They are joined by Britain's favourite TV duo Ant and Dec, who are on hand to encourage the acts and to congratulate or commiserate with them following their auditions.
The lucky act who is crowned the winner in the live grand final will secure a life changing cash prize of £250,000 and the opportunity to perform at this year's The Royal Variety Performance.
It's not just the unusual acts that have shocked and impressed this year. From a modern day version of the von Trapps to Dad dancers who still have the moves and a roller skating brother and sister dream team, this year's auditions have proved there is plenty of variety - and talent - to keep viewers entertained.
Every act is competing for one of the coveted live semi-final places. Five lucky acts have already been sent straight to the live shows thanks to the Golden Buzzer with all four judges and Ant and Dec, picking the performers they think could impress royalty at The Royal Variety Performance.
Britain's Got Talent have scoured the country this year with the judges' auditions visiting Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and London.
Britain's Got Talent is a Thames/Syco Entertainment Production for ITV.
There are 18 episodes in the ninth season, although in South Africa this translated into 21 episodes.
