Another post which is late so apologies. Parts of the reviews I made on the day, others later but where I have reviewed at a later time I’ve tried my best to give the thoughts I had at the time of first viewing. Week 6 auditions were on Saturday 16 May 2015.
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 did I enjoy or are otherwise noteworthy? Read on to find out:
Leo Bailey-Yang – a 7 year old piano player. He showed how well he can play by doing it blindfolded. He’s a smart kid to be able to do that at such a young age, then again there was some excellent classical musicians who were blind so maybe he’ll end up just as famous. After his four yeses, he skipped backstage showing how pleased he was.
The Sayki Five – a singing group of brothers aged 11- 20. David was right when he said “your voices blend together beautifully”. The first song they were going to sing, they were only a couple of lines into when they were stopped and asked if they had another choice. Their second choice of Little Things was so touching to listen to.
Danny Posthill – a comedian impressionist. He does it full time at comedy clubs and so on. Years of honing his skilled paid off as he had the judges and audience laughing. I loved his Michael McIntyre impression. Afterward he was talking backstage to Ant and Dec and hinted next time he’d impersonate them.
Emma Jones – a 23 year old operatic singer. I’m not a fan of this genre of music, but she is talented in this genre the only issue is her nerves. During the performance the mic was shaking so badly she had to use her other hand to help steady the mic and even then it still moved quite a bit. I’m sure with help from the production team though, she can be helped with her nerves making her an excellent choice for the semi-finals, after all she got a standing ovation from the audience and all four judges. Her surprise and awe at the judges comments is endearing. She was so grateful and constantly thanking them making her an even better contestant.
Lorraine Bowen – a woman who played the keyboard on top of an ironing board and sang about crumble. Doesn’t sound great, does it? Like the majority of people I’d agree with that comment but in classic David Walliams style, he loved the craziness and choose to give her a golden buzzer much to Simon’s dismay.
Yet again I’m surprised by how much I enjoyed. Did you agree with my comments? Leave your comments below and thank you for reading.
