Danni certainly bought more to the show than Cheryl during her time.
Don't see the point in retaining Sharon if there will be three other judges. I honestly think Simon needs to recognise he is actually part of the problem now - The panel is much freer to create a decent show without the boss on the panel. If they're having a fifth neutral judge make it him.
The show is just going around in circles and getting dwindling returns. What they should do really is build on last year which although had it's problems had something's going for it. 12 shows over 6 weeks could work well, but bring back deadlock rather than the prize fight and merge the contestants together earlier to create a final 10 rather than final 6.
I'd also scrap boot camp and judges houses to streamline auditions. Just have the judges pick a top 10 per category BGT style then do the Four-Chair Challenge for a place in the live shows, ideally from the main set and packaged as if it was a live show rather than audition episode.
4 weekends of auditions, 2 of the Four Chair Challenge then 6 weeks of live shows streamlines things nicely. 24 episodes and around 40 hours of content, about the same as the classic structure but over 5 fewer weeks.

It's great that everybody gets sarcasm.
