We’re literally counting down the hours, minutes and milliseconds until tomorrow night’s telly-tastic episode seven (yes, SEVEN) of BGT!
It seems like it was only yesterday when we collectively swooned over acts like Sam Kelly and The Loveable Rogues, (all of whom are SINGLE, ladies).
Hasn't series six been bombastically brilliant so far? It's moved at a supersonic speed with more loop-the-loops, twists and turns than you could shake a stick at. The goosebumps still haven’t gone down, our spines are still tingling and those heart strings are still feeling decidedly tugged at. Damn you, BGT!
With this in mind, we’ve put together our highlights from last weekend’s stomper of a show. See y'all tomorrow night at 8.30pm sharp!
La-la-la-la Bamba… It’s Graham Blackledge!
Music shop manager/ part-time organist Graham Blackledge certainly made an impression on our fearless four. Alesha and David thought he was good fun, and the audience LOVED him. However, Simon wasn’t too keen. The big boss told him: ‘That was hideous and horrific. It’s like eating ice-cream with sausages; they just don’t go together.’ Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it, Si.
All that pre-BGT swotting up and revising clearly paid off for Truly Medley Deeply. Possibly more anxious than when they sat their university entrance exams (that’s what they ACTUALLY told us) the trio successfully hid any nerves to put on a fabulous, feet-tapping performance. Heck, even tough-to-please Simon liked it.
School was most definitely out for dance troupe Nu Sxool. Kitted out in cool uniforms and using desks as dancing props, the troupe put on a show-stopping performance. Head-teacher Simon labelled them the St. Trinian’s of Dance and Alesha told them they were ‘cute, cute, cute, cute, cute,’ (yes, that’s five ‘cutes’ and counting).
Memoirs of a Geisha
Geisha Davis’ favourite nursery rhyme is Humpty Dumpty. She also enjoys dressing up in elaborate Eastern-style clobber and painting her face. Combine all three and you have quite possibly the most brilliantly bonkers BGT audition EVER. Watch as her scary canary performance bewitches Simon, while scaring the bejeezus out of Alesha. Cracking stuff!
Good golly, it’s Molly!
Err, Celine, Mariah and Beyonce & Co ought to watch their backs. They’ve got stiff competition in the form of little Molly Rainford. With a diva-tastic voice that belies her young age; the little firecracker got a resounding four yeses from our Judges for her totes emosh audition. Alesha was sooo moved, we swear we saw her dab her eyes, (don’t worry ‘Leash – we won’t tell anyone).
