BGT 2009 – The Final

May 30, 2009

I’m pretty sure it’s tonight, the Britain’s Got Talent final on ITV. Have followed the auditions and the semi-finals sporadically.

So who will win – pressured by the press, Susan Boyle. Weeping Hollie. Father and son from Greece. Lily Allen’s favourite Shaheen or one of the dance acts.

I’m hoping for the dancers in Diversity, I didn’t see them in the semi-final but in the audition they were great, funny and original. All the different sizes and backgrounds, it’s just so good to see when people of different ethnicities and ages can get along. Their biggest competition, Flawless, a group of black dudes should really not beat them. Don’t know if anyone else saw but their choreography in the audition was taken from the film Stomp the Yard.

Aidan, the other dancer, so impressive, a self-taught dancer, probably better than the guy who won last year but then apparently you can find hundreds of boys like that on You Tube. But with all these dancing acts, isn’t it showing that it’s time to have a talent show solely for dancers. There’s Strictly Come Dancing for the celebs but where’s the British version of So You Think You Can Dance or Step It Up and Dance?

So, the BGT semi-finals, it seems to me like there were many good acts in one semi-final and not so many good ones in the other. I would have liked to see that little cute girl with the big voice, Natalie Okri in the final, at least she didn’t cry. And other comedy acts like ventriloquist, Gareth Oliver, who could also sing and the hot guys in Faces of Discos with the cut-out cardboard faces of well-known people were hilarious, especially when all the Simon Cowell’s came out. Obviously, the Greek father and son were quite funny. I pledge more comic acts to the BGT final – next year!

Oh, at least that geezer DJ Talent didn’t make it. What is it, gold teeth for £7000? What a …!
