NB: This post gives a quick explanation of the golden buzzer. Remember too that this is just my opinion and does not necessarily reflect the view of the act or ITV/ Britain’s Got Talent. If you haven’t seen the acts below I’m sure you can find them on ITV’s website, or the app if you are in the UK, if not use that trusty search engine (looks a bit like the word goggle) to see if you can find videos of them.
What acts are stood out for me tonight? Read on then:
Misstasia – an upbeat group of 4 woman in their early twenties. They like all things princess-y and happy. Their joy spilled out of them resulting in a spreading of happiness, especially since there was pictures of flying butterflies added in editing on the pre- and post audition clips. Singing a lesser known but wonderful Disney movie song, it will be great to see them again and continue their Disney songs and spreading cheer.
The Neales – a delightful singing group of a dad and his 3 sons. They formed due to their dad needing to a more relaxed life after a heart attack 10 years ago, although it took him 3 years to convice his sons to auction with him! Their voices, song choice and singing style throw me back to the 50’s and 60’s (of course being in my twenties I wasn’t there but you get what I mean – I well I hope you do). They should be in the semi-finals. I think David’s comment about “beautiful blend of voices” is the best way to describe them.
Old Men Grooving – a group of older men dancing. They started out quite boring but the music changed and I think everyone watching had their opinion changed. They did some very cool street dancing, a old guy Diversity (dance group who won BGT 2009) if you will. David – “You’ve made dad dancing cool”. Simon – “I could watch you all night”.
Maia Gough – a beautiful 12 year old singer who managed to hit the notes on a Whitney Houston song. With a standing ovation and 4 judges giving a yes she is through to the next round. David said something along the lines of children often do better than the adults and you proved that today. I totally agree, sometimes the kids are far more talented than the adults who audition.
In this week’s round of auditions I found myself agreeing with David a lot. Which judge did you find yourself most agreeing with? Did you like my comments? Leave your comments below and thank you for reading.
