The new series of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ got off to a flying start as it returned to screens last week.
Amanda pressed her Golden Buzzer after being blown away by young singer Beau Dermott, Lucy and Trip Hazard restored our faith in dancing dogs, while we also saw the most dangerous act the show has ever seen, when sword swallower Alexandr Magala had the judges on the edge of their seats.
Tonight’s (16 April) episode looks to be another corker, as Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams continue their hunt to find the best (and often worst) talent this fair isle has to offer.
Here are five acts you won’t want to miss from week two of ‘BGT’ auditions.
Following on from the success of Attraction on the show a few years ago, this group - made up of dancers Antonio and Violet, creator Davide and two backstage assistants - bring their unique act to the stage. This imaginative performance features a mix of dance and projections in a way we haven’t seen before, and is one not to be missed.
If we’re being really honest, juggling is pretty darn boring. But that may be because we’d never seen Roberto perform the circus act, as he juggles balls with his mouth. Yes, his MOUTH. We can only imagine what the 26-year-old Mexican performer has up if sleeve if he makes it through to the next round.
Proceeded by a montage of terrible magic acts, something tells you that 25-year-old soldier Richard is going to be good, as he performs his trick for the judges. Let’s just say it involves mind reading, origami, and making a cup of tea and will leave you so frustrated for not being able to work out how he did it.
Move over Billy Elliot! Jack’s audition proves to be particularly emotional, as not only is his ballet performance stunning, the 14-year-old also reveals to the judges the torment he has faced at the hands of school bullies for his love of dancing. You’ll want the tissues for this one.
“I’m still dying for a choir to come out and do what they do on Sister Act and go for it,” Alesha says to Amanda as 100 Voices Of Gospel take to the stage. And boy does she get her wish. The group’s rendition of ‘This Little Light’ of mine takes an unexpected turn, and even has Alesha and Simon fighting. But you’ll have to tune in if you want to find out why.
