Who Are the Judges for Britain's Got Talent?

As of September 2015, the judges of Season 9 of British talent show "Britain's Got Talent" are Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Williams and Alesha Dixon. The show allows anyone of any age to audition in front of the live audience and earn the judges' nods.

The judges select the top 45 acts that face off against each other in the semi-final and final rounds. A weighting system allows both judges and the public to choose the finalists and the eventual winner, who receives a substantial cash prize and the opportunity to perform before the British Royal Family.

Known as a mean judge for his blunt and candid feedback, Simon Cowell is a British music executive, TV producer and former judge of "American Idol." David Williams is an English actor and writer, while Amanda Holden is a West End theater actress. Alesha Dixon is a singer who was part of the group Misteeq. Cowell and Holden were two of the original judges when the show premiered in 2007.
