Belgium's Got Talent is a Belgian TV show produced by FremantleMedia and broadcast by RTL-TVI since September 10, 2012 (2012-09-10). It is hosted by Julie Taton and Jean-Michel Zecca. It's a local adaptation (in French-speaking Belgium) of the British talent show Britain's Got Talent, created by Simon Cowell.

A TV show by the same name, hosted by Koen Wauters and Laura Tesoro, is broadcast on a Dutch-speaking channel in Belgium VTM. The judges there are Niels Destadsbader, Stan Van Samang, Dan Karaty and An Lemmens.

The judges[edit]

Maureen Dor, Carlos Vaquera and Paul Ambach are the judges for the first season of this show.[1]

Concept[edit]

The first season is composed of ten episodes. After a round of auditions and multiple semi-finals, a final is hosted at the end of which the winner receives the prize of €50000.

Auditions[edit]

During the first five episodes amateurs, artists, professionals and so on audition in front of the cameras, each performing their incredible talent in front of the three judges. They have to captivate the judges for two minutes. At any time, a judge can press his buzzer, in case errors in the performance are spotted (and effectively making a red cross appear above the stage). If all three judges have pressed their buzzer, the candidate is forced to stop his act and is immediately eliminated. If, however, after two minutes, the candidate hasn't received three crosses, the judges deliberate and each member gives a positive or negative vote: at least two positive votes are required to continue to the semi-finals. During this stage a judge may alter his vote (giving a negative vote even though he or she hasn't buzzed).

Semi-final[edit]

After the auditions, the candidates having received two or three positive votes from the judges are qualified for the semi-finals. In this stage, candidates are split up into different groups. From here on, the vote of the spectators is introduced in the show and is effectively used to indicate which candidates may continue to the final. After each semi-final, the votes are tallied in order to form a top three. The first place candidate of the episode is granted immediate access to the finals. The judges choose between second and third place which candidate shall continue to the finals. All other contestants are eliminated.
