BGT hopeful has faced Simon Cowell before as past talent show fame exposed

Britain’s Got Talent’s latest episode sees mentalist Lioz Shem Tov attempt to read the minds of the judges.

Amanda Holden joined him on stage for the already filmed performance, with the parody magician sharing his tricks.

A clip teasing the audition showed the so-called mind reader from Tel Aviv messing around, as he fooled Amanda into believing he was going to guess a colour she was thinking of.

Back-to-back, Lioz was actually just making her hold a plastic bag open for the skin of the banana he was eating without her realising.

The judges and the crowd were in stitches, as the hopeful told Amanda to leave the stage with his rubbish.

But this isn’t his first Got Talent stint, and isn’t the first time he’s faced judge Simon Cowell.

In fact, Lioz has been on at least two other versions of the shows in different countries.

He even made it as a finalist one year, before his decision to enter BGT in 2020.

Simon also judges the American version of the show, America’s Got Talent, and this is where they met previously.

It wasn’t evident in the teaser clip if Simon remembered the contestant.

Back in 2019, not even a year before his BGT audition, the contestant appeared on Australia’s Got Talent with a similar act.

He made it to the live finals, but did not win.

A year before this, Lioz was on Simon’s America’s Got Talent, but he did not make it as far on this version of the show.

He’s now hoping to do his best yet, aiming high on the British version, with results to be confirmed in the episode on Saturday evening.

Britain’s Got Talent airs Saturdays at 8pm on ITV.
