I know I’m a little late in actually posting this, but I needed to post a few comments about the second episode of Britain’s Got Talent. Basically, call this the cliff notes version of the second episode of Britain’s Got Talent. I’ll embed videos of these various talents (and not so talents) where possible.
I’ll be listing possible contenders on this season of Britain’s Got Talent, the joke acts that were highly entertaining and what I think was highly overrated by the judges.
Julian Smith – The nice part of this act is that it provides something other than a great singer. The show I’m sure is looking for more variety acts to compete with the singers on the show. So, this fits the bill. Kind of a bit like Kenny G, but with a look that’s 100 times better. I have a feeling the judges will like Julian a lot and so will much of Britain. See the BGT video on YouTube.
Shaheen Jafargholi – This was the closest we came to getting a Susan Boyle like act in Britain’s Got Talent episode 2. I felt like the 2 song thing was far too staged, but Shaheen was dead on in the second song and really was talented. There’s something about a cute little kid with a big voice that people love on these talent shows. Assuming he makes good song choices he’ll do quite well on Britain’s Got Talent. See BGT video on YouTube.
Singing Souls – This act was absolutely horrific. However, the interaction with Simon Cowell was awesome. My favorite line is when Simon says “you should be the mouthpiece.” Super funny. Check out their video on YouTube.
DCD Seniors – I’m pretty sure that DCD Seniors are going to have a few people that were entertained. It was pretty entertaining, but it didn’t really fit into the category of talent in my book. There wasn’t anything special about their act and that will absolutely catch up with them on this show. Check out the video of DCD Seniors and you’ll see what I mean.
Here’s a link to see the full Britain’s Got Talent episode 2 video. It was quite entertaining. The judges on it are so much better than Sharon and the Hoff. I do still like Piers, but Sharon and the Hoff are horrible on America’s Got Talent.
