Britain’s Got Talent

9 Jun

We watched the final last night and believed there was a worthy winner, but we’d have been happy if any of four acts had won.

The Luminites were brilliant throughout the comp and we were astonished they weren’t in the top three:

Richard & Adam have gorgeous voices and were so professional when the viola player ran on stage to throw eggs at Simon Cowell, I thought at first it was part of the act and she was throwing stars into the audience:

Jack Carroll, only 14 and with Cerebral Palsy, is a brilliant comedian and must surely have a big future ahead of him:

And here’s my favourite performance from Attraction, the winners, though they were all good:

    I much prefer America’s got Talent over American Idol. I enjoy the diversity of the acts and the young ones especially.

    Of course, the one who should have won was the one throwing eggs! (Wottonerf??!!!)
    I missed all of this, so was delighted to watch each performance. The winners, though, were only a shadow of their real selves … but superb!

    Thank you for those, Tilly – we hadn’t watched any of this series, and I’m beginning to wish I had.

    I enjoy America’s Got Talent–the spin-off of the original, of course! There is so much talent out there. I like Idol and all of them. I don’t care about the judges and the hype, but I thoroughly enjoy the transformation that takes place as young people begin to see themselves for their talent and potential. I’m glad you enjoyed your show!

    Wow,… the two singers (amazing amazing voices!) certainly proved themselves very professional in carrying on when the woman came on throwing the eggs.

    I agree, any of these four would have been worthy winners (that said the shadow dancers and these two men singing wee my personal favourites)

    Opps WERE my personal favourites , was what I meant to write.

    Our “America’s Got Talent” is just starting here. The auditions part is just being shown on television. Some of the acts are amazing. Some not so much. But the acts that make it to the end at always marvelous. Yours are too. It’s a great show.

    America’s Got Talent just started here, and I loved the first show. I admit to having to grab a tissue when some people have extraordinary backstories and do exceedingly well.

      We in Britain aren’t fans of the backstories – unless it’s about dogs; we’re sentimental about dogs.

        LOL! Dogs don’t send me to tissues … they send me to crying towels!

    Wow, Tilly. I have never seen a performance like that in my life (Attraction). It was breath-taking. Thank you so much for posting this as I would surely have missed it otherwise. Going to get Patty now so she doesn’t miss it either. Have a great day!

    Your pal, Al
