Simon Cowell is set to sign four 'Britain's Got Talent' acts to record deals.
The talent show judge and music mogul is set to cash in on talented stars such as Collabro and Lucy Kay by having them release music through his record label, Syco.
According to The Sun newspaper, all of this year's 'BGT' semi-finalists were signed to contracts tying them to Syco, which means the musical contestants will release music through Simon's label should he wish to snap them up.
Among Simon's favourite acts are Collabro, who sing tunes from musicals, opera singer Lucy, youngsters Bars and Melody, and four-piece swing group Jack Pack.
A source said: "Simon has had pound signs in his eyes all series.
"He 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."
In a further sign of Simon's intentions, it's thought Lucy has already begun working on her debut album.
Meanwhile, Jack Pack's place in the final this weekend could be in jeopardy as it has emerged that band member Adam Chandler - real name Adam Diplock - is awaiting word over whether he is to be charged for allegedly attacking an ex-girlfriend.
The hunky star could be axed from the final by producers, depending on the outcome of the police verdict.
