The Britain's Got Talent judges arrived in Birmingham to scour the cream of what the midlands has to offer. Will there be the next big dance troop? Another top-dog ready to charm its way to the top? Or are we just round the corner from the next big pop star? That's what Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon were there to find out.
Music mogul, Simon Cowell was sporting a near full-length blue jacket and grey v-neck while eager autograph hunters jostled for his signature. In addition to his significant musical exploits, Simon is apparently considering launching a cooking show. We're not sure about that one, Mr Cowell.
David Walliams - in a jovial mood as ever - was joking around with Stephen Mulhern, signing a picture of himself for the BGT host, while genuine fans had to wait their turn! An ever present on Twitter, Walliams used the social networking site to poke fun at his colleague. “I am in Birmingham, the final city of the BGT audition tour. Fingers crossed we find some talent or my Simon may have to downsize his yacht,” he posted to the usual drove of re-tweets. Amanda Holden can now be considered a stalwart of the show, having been a judge since 2007.
Alesha Dixon is known for her honest words on the show. So will she be able to find any talent in Birmingham? Will they, as she loves to put it, 'bring it?'
