‘Britain’s Got Talent’ should come with a Sea World-esque disclaimer for anyone sitting in the audience: “The first three rows will get wet.”
Over the years, we’ve seen more water-throwing from Amanda Holden than we have shoe-horned references to how ‘BGT’ is “what makes Britain great”, so it seemed only fitting that in the closing episode of the 10th series, she gave David Walliams a good soaking.
Amanda’s latest water-throwing came during a critique of her Golden Buzzer act, musical theatre singer Beau Dermott, who had just finished her show-stopping performance of ‘Defying Gravity’.
Delivering his verdict on the teenager’s impressive efforts in Saturday night’s final (28 May), David told her: “I feel like the whole show has taken off now, and you’ve really set the standard to beat tonight. It was really, really fantastic.
“And it would be brilliant if you won, because it’s Amanda’s final year on the show, and it would just be a wonderful way…”
Unfortunately for him, we’ll never know what that would be a “wonderful way” for, because at that moment Amanda picked up her water and threw it over David, stopping him in his tracks.
Mandy previously got a telling off during this year’s auditions, when she drenched Simon Cowell with not one, not two, but three glasses of water.
And if that water-throwing moment has made you nostalgic, you’ll definitely want to see the performance put on by a plethora of ‘BGT’ favourites from years gone by, who returned during Saturday night’s (28 May) live final to pay tribute to the ITV talent show.
Amanda had previously said she thought the 10th series would be her final one on the panel, but ultimately backtracked during the audition process, insisting she’d had a change of heart.
