Akshat Singh – We understand the appeal of Akshat just because he is a fun, energetic dancer who got a golden Buzzer from hosts Ant and Dec. Yet, our feeling from the start was that so much of his appeal was based on his personality and his backstory. That was really reflected in what we ended up seeing tonight. It was fun, but there’s nothing about this that suggested that this was worth a million. It actually didn’t feel like there was that much dancing.
Tony Rudd – We’re shocked at how edgy the show let him be through much of this in between some of his jokes about Brexit and Donald Trump. This was funny! There was a lot of material thrown in here — the impressions weren’t all great (we could do without Shrek and Donkey), but we do appreciate the effort and the writing here — it wasn’t just about impression.
Brian Gilligan – He’s a tremendous singer, but we’ll admit, the start of the performance was a little more muted — it was good to be small, but we could’ve stood to hear him a little bit better. Yet, the ending was big and powerful, showing off the full range of his vocal. We do get what Simon Cowell’s saying about it lacking an edge, but we’d say it was more of a lack of a unique angle. It was very good, but would it be enough to get him to the final?
The Haunting – This is incredibly creepy, and we do enjoy the idea of an act that seems to actually rattle the judges to the core. We were surprised that she really continued the same story of Agatha, but it was mesmerizing and creepy and precisely what you probably wanted if you like this act … at least if you’re okay with Amanda Holden swearing at one point.
Flakefleet Primary School Choir – These kids are really wonderful to watch — at least in terms of the story. We’re not going to say that they are the best singers in the world, but this was absolutely still fun. Enjoyment of them is really all about just that: Joy. Where they excel is via creativity and their teacher allowing the kids to be kids.
Khronos Girls – We still appreciate greatly that these women are actually trying to present dance with some sort of story behind it — it actually makes them stand out from everyone else that is out there in this category. We like that the dance tonight was coordinated and powerful, but the flashes of white light throughout were a little bit distracting.
Dave & Finn – We still don’t necessarily think that there’s anything necessarily magical about Finn per se, and we’ve seen variations of this sort of act before. This is just a really wonderful way in order to package a magic act, and of course, bringing on board the puppies at the end was a smart way to court some additional votes.
Rosie & Adam – This was INTENSE. We love the powerful staging of this and also how hard the two worked in order to show just how capable they are as performers. There was danger here, fire, exceptional costuming, and so much more. Really, one of the best, skill-based acts of the entire night.
To us, our two favorites on the night were Dave & Finn and Rosie & Adam — but we aren’t actually sure either will get through since there is a lot of competition tonight.
