Britain's Got Talent Show Seven Review

Posted: Updated:
Print Article

Show seven is is all about the big reveal. Who has made it to the live semi finals...

But, before all of that, we still had a few more auditions to get through.

First up, were the synchronised swimming group, Emily, Zoe, Jazmine, Elizabeth, aka Aquabatique. 

The girls were fantastic, highly tuned-in athletes who deserve their moment in the spotlight. Great stuff. 

I was thinking of hiring them for my summer garden party but I don't think they will fit in my paddling pool!

From the best of the rest on tonight's show. 

Dalek impressionist, Martyn Crofts made me laugh with his 'exterminate' . Not sure if this is too much of an actual talent though. Her Majesty may not be amused.

Like Mother Like Daughter. Well what can I say. If there was one double act that would have performed better as solo performers, then this has to be it. I will let you make your own decision as to who would be the better half... You couldn't knock the enthusiasm though.

Act of the night, has to go to the unfunny, but funny, Gatis Kandis, a comedian (ahem) from London.

David summed it up with this comment "It was so bad that it was actually brilliant" I agree David.
 
So that's it the BGT auditions for 2012 are finished, over, kaput....

We then witnessed the 'deliberation montage'. Difficult, painful decisions, some winners, some losers.  The four Judges reveal the 45 acts through to the live semi-finals, but one place hung in the balance...

At the time of the auditions, singer Ryan O'Shaunassy, (the one who sang about the his secret love), was contracted to another show. We witnessed him being at the receiving end of a very stern telling off from Simon. Poor Ryan. Glad I was not in his shoes. I do however, have breaking news. I can reveal that this has now been resolved and he has made the live shows.

The only real shock was that young singer Chelsea Redfern never made it through. Keep positive Chelsea, your time will come.

So here is the full line up:

The Sugar Dandies
Cascade
Area 51
Chica Latina
Face Team
Only Boys Aloud
