Once again this post is late so I’m sorry but it is only a few days late as week 7 was on Saturday 23 May 2015. 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.
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.
Was there any acts left for me to love tonight? Of course there was and they were:
The Kanneh-Masons – a classical instrument playing family. It was like having a mini orchestra on stage made up of siblings. They wowed the audience and judges with their ability to play fast up beat tempo and slower pieces of music. The audience and judges loved them so much they clapped and tapped along and gave a standing ovation. It was refreshingly different.
Jules O’Dwyer & Matisse – a dancing dog act. Jules played an evil dog catcher and everyone bought into the story booing her trying to catch Matisse. Matisse is a very talented dog, he and Pudsey (Ashleigh and Pudsey were the winners of BGT 2012) should team up. I want Matisse not just in the semi-finals but the finals! As Cinderella would say “he’s soooo cute!”. Ant and Dec jumped for joy when Matisse escaped from the dog catcher and “melted her heart”. Jules an Matisse got a standing ovation from the audience and judges.
The Honeybuns – a group of female singers. Maybe not the best vocals on this year’s show but you know what? I loved them. They made you want to jump off your seat and join them, and you do need acts like that to keep you from falling asleep! In fact the audience and some of the judges were on their feet and having a great time. They all have glitter filled outfits on, Simon commented on this that it was kind of cruise ship. One of the members asked that if they took the glitz and what you call cruise ship away would it matter any differently? Simon responded “I kind of think that’s part of your identity in a weird way” a bit of a pause and thinking face then “girls am gonna say four yeses”.
The auditions are now over so the semi finalists were then announced. In total there are 45 semi finalists, including the 5 golden buzzer acts. Out of the semi finalists who am I most looking forward to? The following acts are the ones am I excited to see, in a alphabetical order of the name of the act
Jules O’Dwyer & Matisse (See above)
The Honeybuns (See above)
The Kanneh-Masons (See above)
With auditions over I’m super excited for the live shows. Which acts did you like tonight? Are you excited for the live shows? I’d be happy to read your comments and thank you for reading.
