Ant and Dec open Britain's Got Talent semi-finals with iconic musical number

Ant and Dec are set to open the Britain’s Got Talent semi-final with an instantly iconic musical number and we’re completely obsessed.

The presenting duo threw it back to their PJ and Duncan days but brought a whole lot more class to it as they sang their way through the show’s intro.

Blessing us with a jazz number, the lads donned suits and introduced the 2020 semi-finals as the talent show returns following the coronavirus lockdown.

Ant and Dec were clearly determined to return with a bang as they were joined by backing dancers and sang: ‘Let’s begin, strap in, hold tight.’

Continuing their number, the duo introduced the audience for the live shows, who are tuning in virtually on the huge ‘audience wall’ behind the judges.

Of course, it wouldn’t be BGT without the judges, with Ant and Dec going on to introduce Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and new head judge Amanda Holden, as well as Ashley Banjo, who’s taking his seat on the judging panel for the first time.

The audience wall isn’t the only difference the show has had to make, with the judges sat at individual panel tables, and the format allowing the judges to send an act they love straight through to the final.

Meanwhile, Ashley is set to take it back to 2009 as he performs with his dance troupe Diversity, who won the show 11 years ago.

The first semi-final is set to show acts including father and son duo James and Dylan Piper, dance troupe Urban Turtles, singer Imen Siar, and young dancer Yakub perform for the judges.

They’re appearing alongside marine James Stott, choir SOS From the Kids, singer Fayth Ifil, and comedian Steve Royle.

But which acts will triumph and get that all-important place in the Grand Final, vying for the coveted performance at the Royal Variety Show? Only time will tell.

Britain’s Got Talent returns tonight at 8pm on ITV.
