Cowell promises 'cooler' BGT
Simon Cowell has declared the new series of Britain's Got Talent will be "cooler" than ever before.
The reality series launched in 2007, with three winners - George Sampson, Diversity and Spellbound - being dance acts, while Paul Potts and Jai McDowall sang their way to victory.
However, Cowell - who sits on the judging panel with Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams - has promised fans that 2012 will be the show's best year yet.
He tells The Sun, "We've got much cooler artists this year. It's not all about people singing opera and little girls singing White Cliffs Of Dover, which I've heard over and over again.
"We have some genuinely good people and some genuinely horrible people."
The new series will kick off on 24 March.
