On Saturday night’s edition of “Britain’t Got Talent,” there was a little bit of everything in terms of entertaining acts — from music to dance to even some comedy thrown in there.
As for some of the highlights, here are the acts from the show that put a smile on our face for one reason or another (even if that reason was to annoy Simon Cowell):
Graham Blackledge – Was it strange that we enjoyed his deadpan humor more than his organ playing? If nothing else, at least the guy advanced so he can make steam pour out of Simon’s ears for a little while longer.
The Jive Aces – We didn’t see much of them, but we love that there is a swing band on the show this season.
Truly Medley Deeply – First, we love how the title is a play off of one of our favorite songs from Savage Garden. Second, this musical trio was incredible.
Nu Skool – Combine “The School of Rock” with past winners Diversity and the Warblers from “Glee,” and you have this group.
Callum Oakley – A 16-year old comic who both looks (and acts) like he is at least four years older than that.
Molly Rainford – Despite only being 11 years old, she had a voice that was far beyond her age. Young singers have a history of doing well here, so she certainly has a chance at succeeding moving forward.
Malaki Paul – We teased on Friday that Malakai was going to be one of the most-powerful auditions of the show, and we weren’t kidding. The poor 9-year old kid completely broke down on stage midway through his audition, and had to be comforted on stage by his mother.
We really don’t agree with the show’s decision, though, to stretch out the drama of this poor kid by having the show go to commercial break just as the tears started to flow. Why make it that much worse? Luckily, he was able to continue to perform, and he actually is a really fantastic singer.
