Britain's Got Talent - Week 2
We're just two weeks in to the third series of Britain's Got Talent and we didn't think it was possible for the show to get even more thrilling and exciting - but it definitely has! Saturday's show saw more ridiculous, tear-jerking and mind-boggling acts and of course some priceless comments from the judges .
The "ahhhh" factor this week came from 12-year old Shaheen Jarfargholi who belted out a version of his granddad's favourite song Valerie but was promptly cut short by Simon, who said it was a "total disaster" and requested he sing another song - luckily Shaheen had one ready and his version of Michael Jackson's Who's Loving You gave judge Amanda goose bumps. She remarked that she felt the same way when she first heard past winners Paul Potts and George Sampson perform, so maybe that means good things ahead for the courageous young singer?
The "yuck" factor was provided by Peter Coghlan AKA Mamma Trish, whose unusual belly dancing technique left the audience and judges alike pretty revolted. If you fancy checking out what he did, head over to the official Britain's Got Talent site now, but be warned it may put you off your lunch. Louise Moores and her African grey parrot Harry failed to bring their unique brand of animal magic to the stage. Harry was supposed to copy owner Louise's singing but instead the stunned bird kept his beak firmly shut, so it was bye bye birdie.
Simon said Singing Souls were "one of the worst groups he'd heard in his life" (and don't forget he's heard a few bad ones in his time) but the feisty girls weren't going out without a battle. Fiery Hannah seemed prepared for a fight with Simon and declared she thought the girls could be bigger than the Spice Girls and invited Simon to come up on stage and sing after the girls were given three big buzzes off. Â "You sing and I judge - that's the way it goes", replied Simon. Touche, Mr. Cowell!
Music teacher Julian Smith got a standing ovation for his jazz soprano saxophone performance and nearly made Amanda cry (again), proving that the range of talent in this year's competition is varied, unusual and completely unexpected at times! We can't wait to see what week three will bring! Let us know who your faves from this week were.Back to article listing
