The Britain’s Got Talent 2013 final will air on June 8, a week after the semi-finals, it’s been confirmed today.
It’s a new format for the show, which usually held its final straight after the semi-finals during the week.
This year the Britain’s Got Talent live semi-finals start on Monday 27th May from 7.30pm-9pm, with the results show at 9.30pm.
They are then stripped across the week on Tuesday 28th May, Thursday 30th May, Friday 31st May and Saturday 1st June.
Each night will see nine of the top 45 acts – to be revealed this Sunday night – perform live in the hope of winning the public vote.
The guest performances will take place during the results show, as the votes are counted and the Britain’s Got Talent acts wait to discover which of them will make it through to the final.
As always, the act with the highest number of public votes will automatically go through to the live grand final and the two runners-up will then face the judges who will pick their favourite to accompany them.
The live final will then take place a week later on Saturday 8th June, when it will be revealed which act viewers have picked to win a life changing £250,000 and a spot at this year’s Royal Variety Performance.
