I did a quick round-up of week 1’s audition amongst another post, which you can find here. For week 2, click here, week 3 here, week 4’s, week 5’s here, week 6’s is here and finally for week’s 7 auditions and my thoughts on who I’m most looking forward to in the semi-finals click this link.
Issac Waddington won the public vote on last night’s show and The Neales were chosen 3-1 by the judges. I’m happy both of these acts got through but it does mean tonight definitely want some variety acts to go through so it doesn’t get too crowded with singers and dancers on the final.
Tonight was the last semi-final of 2015 and the acts I most looking forward to watching were:
Did any acts leave me underwhelmed? Did any make me go wow? Keep reading to find out:
Beat Brothers – Something my readers won’t know is that as a kid I took dance lessons. One part of the lesson was tap dancing. I loved it. I probably would still love it, but that’s another story. Beat Brothers are a group of 5 guys aged 19-23 who did tap dancing. Unfortunately their audition bored me so I wasn’t looking forward to their act tonight. When you love something, you want it done right and they fell quite below that bar for me. However tonight they made me fall in love with tap dancing all over again. They danced up and down steps. They even had a conveyor belt they tapped on and slides!
Misstasia – Cinderella would have been thrilled to watch this act. I’ll have to save the recording on TiVo until she has had chance to watch it. Why? She only has two favourite songs and they stuck to their Disney theme, and sang one of her favourites, Let It Go. I’ll agree with the judges that maybe their core demographic is kids, but hey adults love Disney too. I’d certainly buy their album.
Emma Jones – I’ve no idea what she sang but I’m glad she has learned to control her nerves. It meant I wasn’t as focussed on worrying for her, but could relax and just enjoy a good voice. The lace on her black dress looked beautiful, so yes I should have been able to just watch and listen to her but was too busy thinking about where I could get a lace like that.
Danny Posthill – Once again I was laughing as he impersonated some current famous celebrities. I think my favourite was his Dec as he even got his gestures and facial expressions spot on, not just the voice. Though I do have an issue with his act. Can I sue for sore mouth muscles from laughing?
From tonight’s live semi-final, I’d like any of the following acts in the live finals:
The results of tonight show and my thoughts on them, will be posted either tomorrow or with Sunday’s live final post.
So the semi-finals are over. Have you enjoyed them? Are you looking forward to the live final? Or are you sad it’s about to be all over for another year? Thanks for reading this post and leave comments if you wish.
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 above 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.
