Britain’s Got Talent Prizes

The cash prize for winning the BGT talent contest was £100,000 and was increased significantly to £500,000 in series 6 (a lot of money to be won by a dancing dog!) along with the opportunity to perform in front of the Queen as part of the Royal Variety Show. The BGT viewers competition is always a massive cash prize + other VIP goodies; a gadget bundle, a car, an amazing holiday or a VIP concert…the cash prize has been as high as £50,000 in previous shows! Often the Britain’s Got Talent competition for viewers spans a number of weeks (eg it is bi-weekly) which is understandable considering the huge prizes!

Britain’s Got Talent Competition Format

The talent competition follows a similar format to many other shows such as Dancing On Ice and The X Factor whereby a panel of judges have their say in the auditions and early days, but as the competition progresses the viewer vote takes over. Auditions take place at major cities all over the UK, contestants have been known to queue for a number of days in the cold to try and ensure their shot at fame. The successful contestants are called back and the show is aired on television. Although one of the most popular shows on ITV, Britains Got Talent has received some bad press for being “cruel”, however we all know this is part and parcel of these style of shows, adding to the entertainment factor.

Simon Cowell (of X Factor) is the most famous of the talent contest judges, however co-judges include Michael McIntyre (love him!), David Walliams, Cheryl Cole and David Hasselhoff. From day one, BGT has been presented by Saturday night prime time duo Ant & Dec, who seem to be involved in all ITVs reality success stories.

Winners Of The Britain’s Got Talent Contest

There has been many very talented contestants in BGT, however the tow that stand out for us are Series Three winners Diversity (an amazing street dance act which spawned many copy-cats in the following years and led to TV shows dedicated to dance) and Susan Boyle…who was actually the runner up in Series three, but still a winner in our eyes.

The £500,000 cash prize which went to Ashleigh and Pudsey seeemed a bit unfair…yes; I am an animal lover but there were many more deserving acts in my opinion, however when it comes to the Britains Got Talent competition, the final decision is always down to the public vote!
