SIMON Cowell has caved under pressure and made a big change to tonight's Britain's Got Talent semi final, just hours before the show goes live.
The TV titan, 62, has decided to bring back the all-important moment when the judges make their grand entrance onto the stage together at the start of the show after viewers and fans were left disappointed.
It comes after Simon ditched the popular walkout, with three out of the four live shows this week starting with the judges already in the seats.
It means that viewers don't get to see Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon's outfits in all their glory.
Simon was given a grilling about the loss of the big opening reveal when he and the judges appeared on This Morning earlier today.
Josie Gibson took Simon to task and now insiders tell The Sun that he has had a change of heart and decided to bring the segment back tonight.

A show source reveals: "The show felt really lacklustre without the judges walking out onto the stage together, it felt like a really anti-climatic start.
"A lot of people tune in to see what Amanda and Alesha are wearing, and you don't get that when they are sat behind the desk.
"It's also the only show on telly where you get to see the judges coming out holding hands, it was always a nice moment and no-one understood why Simon ditched it in the first place."
The insider added that Amanda, Alesha and David Walliams are all thrilled it's back.

"They loved the walk out and agreed something was missing without it. They all told Simon behind the scenes that they wanted it back, so they're thrilled he has listened."
Fans commented on twitter earlier in the week that they were disappointed not to see the foursome make their big entrance into the studio.
One said: "Shame the judges don't walk out to their cheers anymore" and added a sad face emoji.
Tonight marks the last semi-final before Sunday's grand final.
Axel Blake will return this evening, the hilarious comedian from West London, who Simon awarded his golden buzzer to during the auditions.
Also returning are Scooter Boys, aged 6 to 10, who had a false start to their audition after one member crashed during a trick.
