Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon debuted her dramatic hair transformation during the live semi-finals. She always looks fabulous, but fans rushed to compliment Alesha on her new hair do.

Alesha usually dons very dark hair, but during the semi-final on Monday 27 May, took to the stage with a very different look with flowing red locks. The singer entered the show in a short violet dress alongside her fellow judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Bruno Tonioli. And fans of Alesha took to social media to compliment her new look.

One viewer took to social media and wrote: “Love Alesha’s hair colour #BGT”. Another simply added: “ Alesha Dixon is just phenomenal." A third pondered: “‘Is Amanda purposefully matching Alisha’s hair #BGT” - a point about Amanda wearing a very similar colour dress.

The first semi-final saw three Golden Buzzer acts take to the stage, Ssaulabi Performance Troupe, singer Taryn Charles and roller skating couple, Duo Stardust. Taryn Charles took to the stage to sing Teddy Swims’ Lose Control where she got a standing ovation from the judges.

Bruno said she gave ‘soul’ and he saw every ‘emotion’ in her performance. Alesha simply asked: "How do you follow that?" and told Taryn this was her ‘time to shine’.

Amanda told Taryn she ‘came to play’ and Simon added: "You can see and hear how much this means to you."

In a previous chat with OK! Taryn revealed she took some golden confetti home with her after receiving a Golden Buzzer from Bruno.

She said: “My nan’s got some in a flower pot, and the rest is in a frame in my downstairs bathroom. When I got home, I had it everywhere – there was some stuck in my bra!”

Teacher Taryn auditioned for BGT because she wanted to show her students that anything is possible. Taken out of school when she was 15 by her mum, and with undiagnosed ADHD at that time, she volunteered at a local specialist school and has worked with SEND children ever since.

Taryn explained: “It’s important that kids, especially kids with SEND needs or special needs, are shown that everything is accessible to them. Britain’s Got Talent is not just for people who look the part and sound the part. It’s open to everybody. For me to say look, I’ve got the same special needs as you and I was able to go on TV, it’s inspiring for them. It’s important for me to do that.”

Also competing during Monday’s show is Sven Smith, The Trickstars, Trey Braine, Bikoon! and Innocent Masuku.
