Simon Cowell said that this years Britain’s Got Talent was “better than ever” and for once we’re inclined to agree.
Over the past four weeks we’ve seen a number of amazing acts from dogs to very young children, which have blown away Amanda Holden and new judges David Hasslehoff and comedian Michael Mcintyre.
However, if we have one criticism of the show so far, it’s that there’s none of those really bad acts. It could just be because there is far too much talent, or that producers are going through a new change. An example of this was clearly shown this week when we were just given an hour of pure talent. Kicking off the long list was gymnast Valerie whose flexible nature and of course er, talent had the Hoff all hot under the collar. The same could be said about girls, Girls Roc, whose skimpy outfits and and suggestive moves were almost too much for the Baywatch star.
Then there was New Bounce, who proved that despite appearances they weren’t the new Jacksons after a terrible song. However, after being given a second song choice by Amanda the boys did well. Another surprise came in the form of Robert wh looked all masculine but there was nothing laddish about his high feminine voice.
However, our top three of the night were clear. Artist Nathan’s artistic Marmite and toast picture of judge Micheal showed that you didn’t have to be a dancer or singer to have talent, while autistic school boy James moved the judges, and I, to tears with his stunning performance. Also making it into our top three was Michael.
Although not technically British – he was from France and wasn’t too good with English – the dancer blew us away with his popping dance moves. By far my favourite of the night.
