Britain's Got Talent

Anyone else really, really want to go to a taping of one of the early shows for the season?

Tempting….. LOL!
But I bought tickets for a Proclaimers concert in November in Brighton - that was probably a bit wacky already.

No! It’s not a programme that I watch. I avoid anything with Ant & Dec as hosts.

The last time I saw it a few years ago, half the acts seemed not to be British - a dance troupe had come over from India etc.

Britain’s Got Talent tends to be Whoever Wants to Enter’s Got Talent… which is great as we get acts from all over, and if you’re popular and people vote for you, you’ll win, doesn’t matter where you’re from.

There has been a non-Brit winner before, they were outstanding. Similarly a non-Brit won the last Great British Bake Off. And that’s totally cool.

Thanks for the reminder that I have lowbrow tastes! 🙂

I have zero interest in the US version, but I find the British version entertaining. Maybe it's the accents.

I like the early shows each year because they have all sorts of bizarre and unusual acts. David Walliams cracks me up. So do Ant and Dec. The criticism regarding non-British acts is a fair one.

Finally, I'm horribly sentimental, so I love things like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqaJrwnZMpo

@ Dave - I was definitely teary eyed as well and the kiddos were so sweet in their support of their Dad.
