Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals LIVE: Viewers threaten to BOYCOTT show as performers prepare to compete


Britain’s Got Talent semi-final of the 2020 series will air TONIGHT. 

Some viewers, however, have threatened to BOYCOTT tonight’s show over a Black Lives Matter inspired performance from Diversity on last week’s show.

The performance, which triggered 15,500 complaints to Ofcom, depicted a white police officer kneeling on the Diversity star and temporary BGT judge Ashley Banjo, echoing the killing of unarmed black man George Floyd by police.

Some viewers have taken to Twitter to brand the show ‘white-hating’.

Meanwhile, the contestants on the second line up are dancing duo from London Aaron and Jasmine, comedian from Liverpool Allan Finnegan and school choir Class Dynamix.

They’ll be joined by Amanda and Miracle, a magic dog act from Inverness-shire, Scotland and Souparnika Nair, a singer from Bury St Edmunds.

London magician Damien O’Brien will also be performing. Dance act The Coven and Amanda’s golden buzzer act, Honey & Sammy, a mother and daughter duo Honey, 14, and Sammy, 43 will also fight for a place in the finals.
