Britain's Got Talent returned to our screens tonight as acts tried to impress the judges tonight with their unique talents in the 17th series of the show. 

Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli returned to the judging panel with Anthony (Ant) McPartlin and Declan (Dec) Donnelly back as hosts.

The judges previously revealed that nine golden buzzers will be awarded this series, breaking their usual one-per-person limit. And one act won themselves a buzzer after an "incredibly emotional" performance.

Tonight an act called Sydney took to the stage to perform a rendition of Somewhere Over The Rainbow.

Sydney blew away Amanda Holden and was the first judge to use the golden buzzer of this year's series.

Simon Cowell, who confessed he used to hate that song, called it a "rare performance" and that she "so deserved what you just got".

One viewer on X, formerly known as Twitter said: "Absolutely deserved that GOLDEN BUZZER! Congrats girl! #BGT"

Another commented: "Anyone else crying at BGT ? Cos me".
