Britain’s Got Talent final set to be filmed WITHOUT an audience.

For the first time in its 14 year history, the 2020 Britain’s Got Talent live finals are set to go ahead without a studio audience.

A source told The Sun: ‘ITV bosses are having to plan for every eventuality and as it stands, the BGT live shows won’t be filmed with an audience.

‘If guidelines change and they can get in a crowd using social distancing, they’ll consider it.’

They added: ‘BGT bosses know they can keep production values sky high and that while the audience have some role to play, most of the reaction comes from the judges.’ 

The source claimed that at present the only people in the studio will be a small crew and the judging panel made up of Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.

Britain’s Got Talent 2020 finals will only see the judges in the studio

The live shows are usually recorded at either a purpose built studio or arena. The 2019 finals saw the show move to the Hammersmith Apollo which has an audience capacity of around 3000.

To make up for the reported lack of audience, show bosses have promised with ‘bigger and more daring’ acts.

No dates have yet been released for when the live shows will air however it is likely they will happen late summer. The X Factor; which usually fills this slot is being rested for 2020.

How do you think the show will work without an audience? Will you be glad of the quieter approach or will you miss the lively atmosphere created by the audiences?

    Fantastic! This global community we live in today has challenges and we all have to be patient and figure out ways to get things done on schedule and also do so in the safest way possible way. All life is precious! Thank you BGT for being considerate and doing what is required to keep the Judges, The Crew, The performers and everyone involved in the production of BGT safe and healthy. Kudos! I am looking forward to BGT finals. Thank you for managing to work things out and bring us this amazing and inspiring show. Please everyone, stay safe and healthy and happy. Hugs.

    It’s a show that’s all about what’s on stage really, that’s what makes you watch the show! The judges reaction, comment and banter along with Ant and Decs just makes it an all round family entertainment show. I think it will be fine. Good luck to all involved.

  3. I would be heartbroken if I was competing and there wasn’t an audience. I’d feel that even if I were to win the competition, without an audience, it wouldn’t feel like winning because nobody was there for me to project my vocal abilities to so there’s no reaction.

  4. From Argentina 🇦🇷 this time is preocupant, the Covid 19, still stay in the air. In future, will be with all the people with you @simoncowell, just you will watch it 🤗
