Britain's Got Talent viewers voiced their disappointment at the judge's decision to give a professional singer from America a golden buzzer, with one labelling it a "disgrace".

Amanda Holden chose to give New York-based singer Loren Allred the golden buzzer on tonight's first episode of the latest series of the ITV talent show. The golden buzzer means that contestants automatically get through to the semi-finals and each judge is allowed one per season.

Loren introduced herself to the BGT audience as a professional singer from New York whose vocal performance had previously been used in the hit film The Greatest Showman. While her performance Never Enough was praised, viewers on Twitter felt like giving her a golden buzzer was an unnecessary use of the coveted prize.

One user wrote: "I don't care what anyone says, as good as she is, she is already well known and has had her chance before, A waste of the Golden Buzzer, Disgrace."

Another frustrated viewer posted: "I never understand why they use the golden buzzer for someone that was always going to get through to the live shows anyway..? #bgt"

Another person raised their "unpopular opinion" saying: "What a waste of a golden buzzer, yes she was amazing but I’d expect a professional/semi professional to make it through to the semi finals. The buzzer could have been used on another act #BGT."

Other viewers argued that Doncaster father-of-two Nick Edwards should have been given the golden buzzer after being pulled out of the audience to perform.

Mr Edwards, 35, from Doncaster, wowed the crowd by performing a song about a father's love for his daughters and left Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon "in bits". Host Declan Donnelly was also reduced to tears before jokingly turning to the camera and insisting: "I'm fine!"

  Simon Cowell 'got nervous' about filming last year's BGT due to Covid The 62-year-old has admitted he 'got really nervous' about filming Britain's Got Talent auditions last year, before pulling the plug on the series as the coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc.The ITV show's creator, 62, who looks strikingly different in new shots after ditching botox ahead of its return, revealed he soon called off production plans just 'two or three weeks' before they were due to commence since the 'risk to everyone was too high'.

Nick's audition got off to an unusual start when he was surprised by his family. The shy singer, who had not intended to audition, went along to enjoy the BGT as part of the audience but his plans quickly changed when his family surprised him on stage and begged him to audition. Nick's daughters Savannah and Cali, aged three and four, appeared before the judges with their grandmother in order to encourage him.

Nick's performance was a hit with the judges as well as viewers of the show. One person wrote: "nick should have got a golden buzzer!! Never cried so hard at television! That's talent! That's a normal parent! That television #bgt #BritainsGotTalent"

Another wrote: "OMG Nick, anyone else getting totally emotional right now like @antanddec especially Dec seriously? Should of got a Golden Buzzer for sure, 100% right? Also his Mum basicaly just changed his whole life right there. Loved the song too, obviously #BGT"

Another fan wrote: "#BGT Why didn’t Nick get a golden buzzer? His song was beautiful, voice amazing and I’m sobbing from the emotion."
