Simon Cowell has admitted he’s no longer looking for a chart-topping star through Britain’s Got Talent – just someone with a voice he likes.
The 62-year-old mogul has discovered a wealth of sensational talent through his lengthy variety show – with bands, dance troupes, magicians and more discovered over the years.
And while the three previous winners have all been singers in BGT’s 15-year history, Simon has hinted that he doesn’t expect to find any breakout singers from the show.

Simon also hinted that he isn’t sure if the changing face of the music industry will help real talent reach their full potential.

“Britain’s Got Talent is a great platform for singers, you get it right, pick the right song and boy it can change your life overnight.
