Stand-up comedian Nabil Abdulrashid (age 34) brings his edgy humor during the Auditions round on Britain’s Got Talent 2020 (Series 14).
Backstage, Nabil said he’s been everywhere, performing at schools, barber shops and old folks’ home. He said he just wants to get a break. Asked why he joined BGT, Nabil said he spent so much time doing other stuff but now he wants to pursue being a stand-up comedian. “It’s gonna give me a chance to chase my dream and spend more time with my kids,” he said.
Nabil’s very funny and brilliant routine brought the house down, and earned a standing ovation from BGT judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon, and Amanda Holden.
The crowd chanted “Press that Gold!” Alesha, who has been laughing out loudly as Nabil performed onstage, pressed the Golden Buzzer, sending Nabil straight to the semi-finals.
Alesha Dixon told an unbelieving Nabil, “I didn’t do that. You did that, trust me. You’re edgy, you’re charismatic, and I just loved it. I absolutely loved it. It was fantastic.” She said she didn’t expect to press the Golden Buzzer that day but it just felt right. “You are a breath of fresh air,” she concluded.
David Walliams said the writing is perfect and so is the delivery. He thanked Nabil for bringing his style of humor because “it makes the show grow.”

Britain’s Got Talent (aka BGT) is a televised British talent show competition, and part of the global Got Talent franchise created by Simon Cowell. It is hosted by Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly (also known as Ant and Dec), and produced by both Thames (formerly Talkback Thames) and Syco Entertainment, distributed by Fremantle, and broadcast on ITV every year. The show premiered on June 9, 2007 following the success of America’s Got Talent the previous year.
Every year, contestants of any age can audition for the contest with whatever talent they wish to demonstrate. Auditionees seek to impress a panel of judges – at present, consisting of Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, and David Walliams – in order to secure a place in the live rounds of BGT. The winner gets a cash prize and a place within that year’s performances for the Royal Variety Performance before members of the British Royal Family.
On average, Britain’s Got Talent draws 9.9 million viewers per series. A spin-off titled Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions, featuring the same judges and hosts, was later produced and broadcast in 2019, following the success of the American edition’s spin-off America’s Got Talent: The Champions. Britain’s Got Talent is contracted to run until 2024.
Britain’s Got Talent 2020 (Season 14) will air in two parts, the first in April 2020 with pre-recorded audition episodes, while the second containing the live rounds to be aired at a later date. The series was split into two parts because of the Covid-19 pandemic or coronavirus outbreak and the resulting lockdown issued by the British government.
