Something Like a Phenomenon....
Wow...this series of Britain's Got Talent really has been a phenomenon and we're loving every second of it!
We're three semi-finals down, and we're pleased to say that some really good talent has made it through to the final. It's been incredible, and we just can't wait for tonight!
There are six through already, we have another four to find and we completely agree with the finalists so far - the right people have gone through and the best acts have won a deserved place. One thing that's been common throughout these semi-finals is that everyone has been feeling the pressure. Every single act has been experiencing just how big this show is, and in particular how big the semi-finals have been. The nerves have gotten to just about everybody, and it shows! No one has put in the perfect performance yet, the sheer scale of it all has been overwhelming. Susan Boyle hit a few dodgy notes when she first came out, but she regained her composure and put in a magnificent performance. Diversity told us that they'd never been as nervous as they were on the night, and Flawless weren't quite flawless with a minor wobble at the very end of what was a stunning dance routine. Stavros Flatley missed a couple of steps in the middle of their number, and even the amazing Shaheen had a slight note-wobble at the beginning! So everyone is feeling the pressure big time, and can you really blame them? Nerves are to be expected and especially this year the show and the hype around it is bigger than either of us can remember, and that is bound to have an effect.
But, we're so excited for the final because the talent that's gone through have now experienced a live show and know what they're in for, and most importantly they'll want to prove themselves...and that's going to make for a very, very exciting final. We're currently deep in rehearsal for tonight's show, and the funny thing is that the corridor outside our dressing rooms is the place where all the acts and dancers meet to get ready and psyche themselves up just before they head into the studio. They all wait outside our door which is the furthest one down, and I opened the door the other day, and little Lagi from Stavros Flatley fell straight in, dressed in full Cypriot outfit which was a surprise to say the least! So we get to see quite a bit of involvement backstage and the comings and goings of the acts so it's a great vantage point before the show. It's been a relentless week so far - as soon as we're out of bed we're in a car straight to the studio where we'll rehearse all day, do the show, go home, go to bed, get up the next morning, head straight to the studio again...so we had a welcome night off last night to watch the football, and we're now raring to go for the second half of the week! So, tune in tonight and let us know what you think, and don't forget to check in tomorrow afternoon for the second part of our chocolate challenge....The Malteser Cup!
