Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams returned this evening for the fourth instalment of the Britain’s Got Talent 2019 semi-finals, and eagle-eyed fans spotted something unusual with judge David.
During Thursday’s show, viewers were distracted after noticing all of the judges had the exact same chair except for David.
David’s chair is navy and is a completely different shape to the other judges’ black chairs, and fans were quick to take to Twitter to comment.
One viewer wrote: “Does anyone know why @davidwalliams has a different chair to the other judges on @BGT?”
Another said: “@BGT just wondering why David has got a different chair to the other three judges.”
“#BGT @davidwalliams has someone stole your chair?? Yours is the only one different from the others,” a third tweeted.
A fourth wondered: “Why is David’s chair different to everyone else’s chair he looks like he’s been put on an emergency chair wheeled out from the study @ITV2_BGMT @BGT.”
“#BGT why does David have a different chair to the other judges??” another remarked.
“Why has @davidwalliams got a different chair to the other judges on @BGT? Playing havoc with my OCD,” a sixth added.
However this isn’t the first time viewers have spotted the difference and fans tweeted about their confusion during last year’s show too.
Addressing the difference, David tweeted: “For those of you who want to know why I have a different chair to the other judges on @BGT it is because I have a back operation to remove a disk after my Thames swim for @sportrelief and so need to sit on chairs that are specifically designed for people with back problems.”
Welsh dance group, Lil Icons were the first act to perform on tonight’s semi-final and after a lively performance, the judges began to give the group their feedback.
However viewers vented their frustration after failing to hear the judges’ comments due to supposedly faulty microphones.
One said: “I’d sack the sound engineer, they sound like they are in a cavern not a theatre #BGT.”
Another fan added: “Why do the judges sound like daleks? #BGT,” and a third wrote: “The sound’s gone haywire #BGT.”
The dare-devils performed a nerve-wracking routine for their audition which involved narrowly avoiding injury with a blade by falling on a series of boxes.
Speaking to The Sun Online a source claimed the group had to withdraw from the competition for “health and safety” reasons.
A spokesperson for Britain’s Got Talent said: “The Brotherhood have had to withdraw from the Britain’s Got Talent Live Semi-Finals. Libby and Charlie will now be performing on Friday’s nights show.”
Britain’s Got Talent continues tomorrow at 7.30pm on ITV.
