Britains Got Talent

Much to my amazement I have been following BTG on ITV, but was disgusted at Friday night's semi final, because a 10 year old girl burst into tears because she messed up.........she was given a 2nd attempt........and was voted through to the final by the judges.
Any other contestant would not get another go.....so why a 10year old spoilt brat?
I'm surprised there have not been complaints from other contestants.

Re: Britains Got Talent

common theme with this  sort of shows,
i am sure there is a handbook for these sorts of shows.
1. kids. if they mange to fhish with out bursting your ear drums then they get though. talent or no talent
2 the old sob story. specialy the iam doing in the name of some that has just passed away.
3 illness
the list goes on
the best show that i saw that all my family sat an watched and catgoised all the how to's was that one where they had million pound to give to people and they had to basicly beg for the money


all these shows are pretty much banned in this house now. once youve seen one youve seen em all.
just that nightmare of a show on c4 thats back on soon to ban. man that show lasts the whole dam summer grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
every year i hear most my family say iam not watching this years come a few days later and there glued to ogle box

I saw that  Embarrassed
One wonders how she'd cope at the Royal Variety if she won!
Think there should be a minimum age limit of, say, 12 or 14 (maybe even higher) for these sort of shows.

Re: Britains Got Talent

I think that 3 of tonight's finalists are not yet teenagers.  Kids can always get the sympathy vote and whilst it is sad to see the little girl break down last night she should not have been given a second chance.  It's unfair to other contestants - one of whom has now lost his chance of stardom.

I doubt that - the winner was probably picked months ago Wink

Re: Britains Got Talent

What's unfair is that for a variety show / contest there isn't much.
There is only the saxophonist that isn't a singer / dance of some description.

Maybe it's that the rest are marketable by Simon Cowell who runs the show  Undecided

Re: Britains Got Talent

I'm sure that's the reason.. which then makes it pointless for anyone others than singers and dancers auditioning.  Sad

Re: Britains Got Talent

You're right Mav.  Some of the acts that have got through would not make it outside the show.

Re: Britains Got Talent

But are we expected to follow Ant 'n' Dec's fashion for straight top pocket handkerchiefs? I can remember carefully ironing those in the mid 60's for a Saturday evening out.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Britains Got Talent

Yeah made me smile, felt sorry for the saxophonist though - he was very good.
