Britain (has not) got Talent

wtf!

I've just watched a replay of the semifinals of Britain's Got Talent.

I firmly believe that there is plenty of talent in Great Britain. For some reason though it has all successfully avoided appearing on the new Simon Cowell show "Britain's Got Talent".

It was HORRIBLE! I haven't managed to stay watching it throughout as I found better things to do (such as peeling potatoes, cleaning out the sink overflow pipe, gouging out my own eyes.... you know, the usual) however the bits I have seen have been unbelievably appalling. Oh yeah - they also had to remove a contestant as he turned out to be a known sex offender. (although it seems he's a foot fetishist rather than a paedo or rapist etc.. and is off the register this year... I don't know the facts... think it's a bit odd to put yourself on national tv if you're on the sex offenders register though)

I am off now to try to find a clip or two to show you. Trav - you should love these!



This made me want to vomit. I hate singing toddlers anyway. Wouldn't you know it - she got through.



I didn't hate this. They didn't get through.



This one involved alcohol (sort of) and is therefore automatically ok by me. They are through.

I thought this "singing tot" was ok. But there were too many little girls trying to dance on too small a stage in the second video. Couldn't really follow the routine.

These two bartenders are talented jugglers.

But what did you think of Paul Potts? He's amazing!

You are a very wise lady!!!

Travis - He won it! I don't like him, but he's certainly the best of a bad bunch!

I couldn't watch any of it - too painfully embarrassing! Though I have to agree the 'cocktail shakers' were mildly entertaining - reminded me of a barman in Zante - he was rather dishy!

I enjoyed the little girl on my site..I can not watch your videos here while at work, so not sure who you featured....

It is over?

But the web site shows them just in auditions... hummmm

TopChamp said...

Yup it's over! And not a moment to soon.

Really sorry - the little girl was unpleasant to me. Bleurgh. But I don't really like singing dancing kids much generally.

TopChamp said...

Trav - I forgot your juggling thing....

Child actors and singers are a big pet peeve of mine. It drives me crazy to see them acting so adult. Ugh.

People seem to revel in watching other people fail. I think it appeals to their own lack of self worth or something.

TopChamp said...

It did make me feel better knowing that I would never do any of these things.... but nobody 'failed' - they all did what they do well. I just didn't like much of it.

Oh these shows....but I did see on CNN the chinese equivalent. And the woman who was the runner up had the most exquisite voice. I must find a way to get her name and get a hold of her CD!
