Britain’s Got Talent 2012: You Be The Judge

“Britain’s Got Talent” is poised to return to ITV for 2012, and along with the return of Simon Cowell and the addition of Alesha Dixon and David Walliams to the panel comes one more judge: the YouTube Community.

Last year the talent show invited would-be winners to apply via YouTube for access to an exclusive audition. This time, “Britain’s Got Talent” will identify the best submissions and then ask visitors to the show’s channel to decide which acts will have the opportunity to present their skills in person at the Birmingham auditions on February 18. Meaning that you, the audience, will be able to try your hand at being Simon Cowell for real. Who will you back for fame?

If you fancy your chances of making it all the way to a slot on the bill at the Royal Variety Performance and trousering the show’s incredible £500,000 prize, then you have until Tuesday, January 22, to upload your submission. Full details are available here.

The shortlist will be unveiled on Monday, February 6, at which point the acts will have seven days to generate as many votes as possible before the winners are settled and slots booked for an audience with the fearsome Cowell, Dixon, Holden and Walliams.

Get filming, get uploading and show “Britain’s Got Talent”, the judges and the YouTube community what you can do.
