For those of you out there who were curious as to precisely how big Richard Jones’ win was on “Britain’s Got Talent” this weekend, there wasn’t a huge margin of victory. Not only that, but he won with the smallest percentage of votes ever since such data was publicly released for the show.
Jones’ victory came with him receiving just under 17% of the vote. This is the first time that the winner of the show has clocked under 20% of the vote, and this really is a testament to just how much parity there really was with the acts this time around. Over six acts had more than 9% of the vote, and that’s something we rarely ever see.
In second place, Wayne Woodward ended up receiving an impressive 14% of the vote, whereas Boogie Storm had 13% of the vote in second place.
If you are looking for another reason as to precisely why Jones’ win is still impressive despite the low vote total, it is this: He managed to score this victory despite performing second on the night. During these finals, the acts who perform near the end of the show tend to have an inherent advantage. With Wayne and Boogie Storm, they both did hit the stage near the end of the show. Maybe had they performed earlier, the totals will be somewhat different from what they ended up being.
Ultimately, the true test of a winner is what they do after the show, and we’ll just have to wait and see that when it comes to Richard and his magic.
