‘Britain’s Got Talent’ review: Richard Jones, 100 Voices of Gospel, and Jack Higgins shine in audition show 2
“Britain’s Got Talent” is back! After a really fun audition show last week, we’re back with a wide array of performances this time. We’ve got singers, dancers, acrobats, and someone who juggles hats and things with its mouth.
As per usual, we’re reviewing this episode live! Be sure to check back throughout with some more updates throughout the show.
Bill Bookman – This somehow got enough “yes” votes to advance, even if it was really a desperate guy playing a ton of instruments on the stage. Was it camp? We suppose so, but it feels like we’ve seen the entire act at this point.
Roberto Carlos – The dude juggles with his mouth. Sure, that’s all sorts of weird, but it’s also remarkably entertaining. He’s got a sort of reckless abandon about him that made it infectious to watch.
Katy and Paul – It’s a shame that acts like this don’t get Golden Buzzers as opposed to singers / the sort of people who always get them. This was incredibly impressive, and we’ve seen a lot of duo acrobat acts on the show over the years.
Jack Higgins – This was a proper ballet performance, and a stellar one at that. We probably are one of the biggest critics of kid dancers on this show, but the difference here is that there was real passion here, and it could stand up against adult performers.
Another Kind of Blue – If this act feels somewhat similar, it’s because it has the same choreographer as Blue Journey, one of the more notable acts from “America’s Got Talent” back in 2014. They’re really exceptional dancers, but they also use projections to tell a story. Really strong.
Wayne Woodward – It took a while for us to get to another legitimate talent! Wayne’s a genuine crooner with a fantastic voice and the right stage presence for what he’s doing. He may need to prove that he’s more than just a Sinatra soundalike, so we’re interested to see what he does when he has the luxury of performing in a live show with a band (provided that happens).
Richard Jones – This was a heck of a magic act. There was intrigue, drama, and a really great trick at the end of it. We suspected that he’d be a good magician from his edit alone, but more than that, he’s a great presenter. This former soldier could go a long way.
100 Voices of Gospel – They were precisely what you probably wanted from a stellar gospel group and then some. They were wonderful, energetic, and while we’ve seen similar acts out there before, we’re not going to complain about Alesha Dixon pressing her Golden Buzzer for them.
