Cowell to sign four acts to roster
Simon Cowell is reportedly set to sign up four acts from this year's Britain's Got Talent, even if they don't win.
The TV and music mogul, who's also a judge on the ITV show, is said to be interested in quintet Collabro and young duo Bars And Melody, his Golden Buzzer act. Both are bookies William Hill's favourites to win the final on June 7.
But Simon is also rumoured to be keen on opera singer Lucy Kay and swing singers Jack Pack joining his Syco roster, reported The Sun.
A source said: "Simon loves Collabro, Jack Pack, Lucy Kay and Bars And Melody. He has experience with acts like that and knows exactly what to do with them."
The Sun reported that the semi-finalists have been offered contracts that tie them to Simon's Syco company for years.
Eleven acts, including salsa-dancing duo Paddy And Nico, Canadian magician Darcy Oake and French stiletto-wearing dancers Yanis Marshall, Aranad and Medhi, will battle it out in the final to be crowned the 2014 winner of Britain's Got Talent.
