Tonight, the Britain’s Got Talent auditions officially came to a close, and they gave us some stuff we did not expect. We also learned a little bit more about who is going to be appearing in the live shows this coming week!
We don’t want to spend a whole lot of time in the buildup here — instead, let’s just get right in to some of the acts! We also got a video below for some other thoughts; if you like that, remember to subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube for more updates and check out our official playlist.
Kath Thompson – A little bit awkward to have a Theresa May impersonator on Britain’s Got Talent at the moment, no? This was the classic case of someone going on stage, grooving a little, and then taking off some of their outfit. Somehow, she’s through to the live shows without question.
John Archer – He admitted that he’s been gigging for a long time and hasn’t quite had a break — he’s a good magician! He’s pretty simple in his approach, but he’s got such a great sense of humor. So much of his trick was about making you think that you are in the act … but you’re really not.
KNE – This started off as a trick — with the lead pretending as though he was going to come out and do “Hello” by Adele. Then, it turned into a group dance act — they are a little boy-bandlike as Simon Cowell said, but they are that rare group that can combine dancing and singing without a problem.
4MG – They kinda looked like a boy band, but they were actually a group of young magicians. Fundamentally, what they did were a series of reasonable card tricks — it was well-executed, and what was perhaps most surprising was how capable all of them were.
Funky Feet – There were a lot of dancers in this group. Too many? Maybe, since with the stage we couldn’t see what all of them were really doing. Nonetheless, we like the aggression that they moved with and also how they seemed to be mostly fearless with what they were doing. Also, choreographed hair movements.
Disco Dogs – You may not want to admit it, but these dogs are going to be the favorite act of four-year olds everywhere. Sure, it’s mostly rubbish, but it seemed to be Alesha Dixon’s favorite act of all time based on how she got on during it — also, did one of those dogs hike up their leg to pee in the middle of it? The funniest thing was that the dogs were actually just Ant, Dec, and Stephen.
Let’s be real — it’s a little hard to really list of all of the top 40 when not all of them were shown. Yet, we did see KNE and John Archer move forward, whereas the fake Theresa May and the Isle of Wight guy did not. Also, the mysterious man X is moving on. What matters is that most of the good talent moved on … but of course, some others did not.
Monday night, the show goes LIVE!
