Got Talent is a British [lower-alpha 1] talent show TV format conceived and owned by Simon Cowell's SYCOtv company. It has spawned spin-offs in over 69 countries, in what is now referred to as the 'Got Talent' format, [1] similar to that described by Fremantle of the Idol and The X Factor formats. Unlike those shows, Got Talent showcases several artistic disciplines in addition to singing. In April 2014, the format was named the world's most successful reality TV format ever by the Guinness World Records. [1]



Got Talent was conceived in 2005 by Simon Cowell, creator and judge on The X Factor . The concept of the format was for a large-scale televised talent competition, in which anyone of any age and background, could participate with any form of talent before both an audience and a panel of judges. The concept was first proposed to British television network ITV, who agreed to a pilot episode of the format. [2] After the pilot proved a success, work began on producing a season of the competition for British television, but was suspended after its intended host entered into a dispute with ITV and ultimately ended their involvement with the network. [3] Owing to this, Cowell took to promoting the concept to American television networks sooner than planned, and eventually secured the interest of American television network NBC with producing a season for their 2006 summer broadcast schedule. [4]

America's Got Talent debuted on 21 June 2006, and was the first international edition of the franchise to be produced and broadcast. The program proved a success for NBC, who commissioned further seasons, while launching the franchise internationally – among countries where the competition's format was bought up by television networks between late 2006 to mid-2007 included France, Russia, Sweden, and Australia. Cowell later returned to the UK to continue production of the British edition for ITV, leading to Britain's Got Talent debuting on June 9, 2007.

Proposed global version

In June 2010, following Britain's Got Talent's success at the BAFTA television awards, Cowell voiced his ideas regarding World's Got Talent, a global version of Got Talent. However, he argued that the format would not work with judges as they had all "tried to be him" in previous attempts (such as World Idol ), and instead proposed a commentary format, similar to that of the Eurovision Song Contest. [5] During the same week, more details were announced, with Cowell explaining 20 previous winning contestants from global variations of Got Talent would be brought together at the Royal Albert Hall with himself and Jonathan Lopez both having roles in the show. A proposed prize of £1 million was announced, along with a projected global television audience of 300 million, and an intended airdate of 2011. [6]

However, Cowell halted plans for the series because it would conflict with his judging commitments with The X Factor USA and Britain's Got Talent for the years to come. In February 2014, The X Factor USA was canceled by Fox due to low ratings and Cowell's decision to return to the UK version of that show.

In 2014, ITV had broadcast a series of spin-off shows Planet's Got Talent which showed the clips of Got Talent from all over the world. It has been broadcast in Italy on TV8 and Sky Uno. Slovenia had made a show as same as the British one. In 2019, Hunan Television produced an unofficial spin-off series, World's Got Talent, whose copyrights were shared by Hunan Television and Fremantle, featuring 61 notable acts from Got Talent franchise around the world. Currently, a similar version of "World's Got Talent" and "Planet's Got Talent" acts as a YouTube channel, known as "Got Talent Global". The channel uploads clips from "Got Talent" shows from across the world. The channel currently has over 13 million subscribers. A similar channel, called Top Talent uploads clips of The X Factor , Got Talent and Idol from around the world. That channel has over 3 million subscribers.

NBC launched a spin-off series, America's Got Talent: The Champions in 2019, featuring notable contestants from America's Got Talent alongside acts from the franchises worldwide. [7] The winner of this spin-off series was Canadian-American card magician Shin Lim. In addition, Hunan Television produced an unofficial global version of Got Talent in 2019, the World's Got Talent presented by Eliza Liang and Wong Cho-lam, featuring notable contestants from the Got Talent versions around the world. Following the success of America's Got Talent: The Champions, ITV launched a spin-off series, Britain's Got Talent: The Champions in 2019, featuring notable contestants from Britain's Got Talent alongside acts from the franchises worldwide. The winner of this spin-off series was dance act, Twist and Pulse. In 2020, Seven Network launched a spinoff series of Australia's Got Talent called Australia's Got Talent: Challengers & Champions . The show is set to launch sometime in 2020.

<i>Popstars</i> (British TV series)

Popstars was a short-lived reality music talent show that was broadcast on ITV in early 2001. It was the first UK series of the international Popstars franchise, and was billed as a documentary on the formation of a modern pop group. The programme began with audition rounds of aspiring singers performing covers of classic songs before a panel of judges. The best performers were selected to come to London for further rounds of auditions. Over the weeks, the judges eliminated various singers from the auditions until just a few singers were left in contention. In the final weeks, five contestants were chosen by the judges to form the new pop group Hear'Say. The programme then showed the group recording and promoting their first single, documenting their first ventures into the music industry.

The fifth series of British talent competition programme Britain's Got Talent was broadcast on ITV, from 16 April to 4 June 2011; due to live coverage of the 2011 UEFA Champions League Final on 28 May, the final audition episode of the series was pushed back a day to avoid clashing with it. As Piers Morgan had departed from the programme the previous year, and the schedule of Simon Cowell made him unable to attend auditions, the producers arranged for Amanda Holden to be joined by David Hasselhoff and Michael McIntyre on the judging panel. Due to Hasselhoff's schedule during filming of the auditions, Louis Walsh stepped in as a guest judge for the sessions he could not attend.
