Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon has shared a glimpse from behind the scenes as her glam team helped her achieve a stunning look for the semi-finals.
She shared a Reel with her 1.1m followers on Instagram that followed along from a hair and make-up start, to a glamorous live show finish.
It looked like quite the lengthy process ahead of Friday's fifth semi final, which was the last chance for contestants to secure their place in tonight's final show.
The former Strictly Come Dancing winner, 43, captioned the clip: "The last of the semi finals! And it was a great one! @bgt ".
Fans of the Mis-Teeq star watched in awe as both hair and make-up was tackled at the same time.
Her slick hairstyle involved all manner of clips, combs and (undoubtedly) plenty of hairspray while the make-up artist got to work applying an immaculate red lipstick.
Her flawless skin was on full display in the light of her dressing room, and props to the MUA for some fantastic highlighter work on Alesha's cheekbones.
The Reel went into great detail as Alesha shared an up close shot of a nifty mascara touch-up while the hairstylist was still hard at work in the background.
The video might have been sped up in parts, but we have a lot of respect for their skill and accuracy – applying mascara can be a challenge at the best of times!
The singer, who recently enjoyed a boozy lunch with Simon Cowell's fiancé Laura Silverman, then slipped into a glamorous black Galia Lahav dress which featured huge balloon sleeves and an oversized pink bow.
The pink material trailed down to the floor to form part of a split in her dress, which showcased Alesha's toned legs.
She posed outside for a brief photoshoot in a series of stunning images, which she later posted to her Instagram, before jetting off to London's Hammersmith Apollo.
Upon arrival, husband Azuka Ononye and daughter Azura, eight, posed alongside the BGT judge for some more snaps before her glam squad made some final touches to her make-up.
Fans caught a glimpse of the live audience in the background as Alesha's hairstylist fixed her hair to camera-ready standards.
Alesha then brought the judging panel's children into the Reel with Azura, Amanda's daughter Hollie, 10, and Simon Cowell's son Eric, eight, all waving to the camera.
Alesha was seen showing her daughter some dance moves as the three children sat in their parents' seats.
Later, Alesha walked in the dark and climbed into her ride home with daughter Azura after the end of the live performances.
She panned the camera towards the sparkling BGT venue as they drove past and headed home.
Fellow judge Amanda Holden praised her co-stars choice of outfit, commenting: "This Look" followed by five fire emojis.
The radio host, 51, recently posted an adorable snap of the BGT taken over by the judges' children ahead of tonight's grand final.
11 acts will battle it out for the £250,000 prize and a chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.
Singers Maxwell Thorpe, Flintz and Taylor, Tom Ball and Loren Allred join comedian and impressionist Ben Nickless in the final.
Teen ventriloquist Jamie Leahey, 14-year-old comedian Eva Abley, dance group Five Star Boys, comedian Axel Blake and seven-year-old poet Aneeshwar Kunchala were the other semi-finalists to go through, with Amber and the Dancing Collies earning a wild card spot.
