Britain’s Got Talent judges Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon appeared tense before the live semi-final on Thursday at the Apollo London.
Alesha, 43, seemed to be having a serious conversation with Amanda, 51, on the balcony of the venue in Hammersmith just 15 minutes before the show.
The singer appeared animated during their chat, while they both put on a glamorous display before appearing on the judges panel.

Amanda wowed as she slipped into a thigh-grazing Dolce & Gabbana mini dress and posed for photos on the back of a flash motorcycle.
The floral garment was adorned with sequins for extra glamour and featured a thigh-grazing hemline that showcased her tanned and toned pins.
The mother-of-two donned a pair of barely-there black heels to boost her frame and opted for no other accessories to let her dress take centre stage.
Meanwhile, fellow judge Alesha looked equally radiant in a dramatic white gown which featured a giant ruffled rose on the bodice while the garment was fitted to accentuate her slender curves.

During the show, Loren Allred was triumphant after winning the public vote amid claims her involvement in the show had fixed.
The singer, 32, who unveiled herself as the singer of The Greatest Showman hit Never Enough earlier in the series, sailed through to the next round after receiving the most votes from the public.
She was followed by dancers Five Star Boys who received votes from judges David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden , leaving invisible illusionist The Phantom to leave the competition.

Simon Cowell added that he would have voted for Five Star Boys, admitting he was baffled by The Phantom’s performance which left the judges confused despite them all taking part in the act.
Earlier in the show, Simon addressed controversy over Loren appearing on the show, having already worked professionally while offering her vocals to The Greatest Showman.
He said: ‘I also know you got a bit of stick in the media, “It’s a fix because you’ve been on another show.”
‘That’s the whole point of shows like this, that you give someone another chance.’
He added that he hoped she would go on to win the competition, adding that he was a huge fan.
Last month it was claimed one in four BGT acts are ‘recycled’ from other shows or have links to Simon and other show talent.
Of the 60 acts that have been shown on television this year, 15 have either appeared on another series from the Got Talent franchise, are linked to head judge Simon or someone else linked to the shows, or are already ‘professional’, according to The Sun.

The likes of American singer Loren is the voice of the hit song Never Enough from the 2017 film The Greatest Showman, while soul singer Mel Day, 77, achieved chart success as the lead vocalist of J.A.L.N. Band in the US and UK with 1976 track Disco Music (I Like It).
A BGT spokesman told MailOnline at the time: ‘Whilst most people will have heard the infamous Greatest Showman track, Loren is not a household name, and she deserves her spot on the BGT stage.
‘We hope that such articles will not count against somebody who is well deserving of this opportunity. It’s fantastic that Loren is now able to step out and stand in her own right to be the face, and not just the voice, of one of the most well-known tracks of all time.’
