We don’t know just what the crossover audience is for “Britain’s Got Talent” and “America’s Got Talent,” be we remember Ben Blaque pretty fondly from his time on the later show. We know that there may be some people out there about so many “crossover contestants” these days, but let’s pose the following two questions:
1. Do you really want the best talent on this show? We certainly do, and there’s something fun about seeing what some of these contestants have changed to their acts over the years.
2. Do you really want the entirety of this show to be singers, dance acts, and the occasional magician / animal act? The reality is that there are probably few marksmen who do what Ben does for the sake of entertainment. It’s not the sort of thing that many young people aspire to do when they grow up.
Let’s get to the act. Ben uses Simon Cowell in order to help signal him to nail a target while his vision is obscured, and after firing his arrow, it sets in motion a chain reaction. It is a very cool and very impressive act. The challenge for Ben is that it’s all about precision. If he’s just off by a fraction of an inch, the whole act changes and it’s not nearly as impressive as it would otherwise be. He’s like many other stunt acts in that there’s such a tiny margin of error, especially in comparison to people like singers, who can cover up their mistakes a little bit easier while on stage.
