The acts who are voted through at each semi-final will then return on Sunday, June 2 for the live grand final.

Who are the acts through to the finals?

Just because an act got enough yeses to make it through the heats doesn't necessarily mean we'll see them in the live semi-finals, as the judges usually whittle down the long list even further after they've had a chance to reconsider their choices.

However, five lucky acts can be sure they'll be featuring in the live shows week as they were the Golden Buzzer picks this series.

Flakefleet Primary School's uplifting variety performance was chosen by David Walliams, while Amanda Holden went for teen band Chapter 13 who had met while appearing in West End musical School of Rock.

Alesha Dixon also chose a young star with singer Giorgia Borg, and Simon Cowell uncharacteristically went for comedian Kojo Anim.

Hosts Ant and Dec also get a Golden Buzzer vote, and they chose Akshat Singh, a teenage dancer from Mumbai.

How many other acts will be appearing in the live shows?

There is no official word yet on how many acts are contesting the four semi-finals, but last year's five live shows saw eight acts each night battle it out for the 11 places in the grand final.
