Britain’s Got Talent – 2012 Initial Auditions

This year’s series of the reality TV show Britain’s Got Talent started last weekend. Last year I felt that many of the wannabe’s were pretty average and no-one particularly stood out for me. This year could not be different. I was really impressed with several of the acts putting themselves forward last weekend.

Two acts however really stood out. The first was the amazing Welsh boy choir “Only Boys Aloud”. They performed “Calon Lan” in Welsh:

The second act was not one which caught anyone’s eye to start with. The programme showed audience members dismissing the act by their appearance and Simon Cowell making a dismissive remark. I really thought that people would have learned from the shock that people got when Susan Boyle opened her mouth and began to sing. Anyway see what you think:

Amazing or what?

It seems that “Only Boys Aloud” have been going for some time and I found this promotional clip from them which you may enjoy:

  1. As a keen fan of Britain’s got talent I assume you’re not surprised by the dwindling support the Conservatives have in Reading, Wokingham and Britain in general – your party seems to be somewhat lacking in the commodity at present.

    • Gideon – as with BGT you should wait until “the fat lady sings” before coming to your judgement. Having found another member and a new deliver with today’s session on the doorsteps things are looking good for 3rd May.
