So the finals of Britain’s Got Talent (BGT) just aired last night and I finally finished watching all the finals performance videos. I must say, Britain’s certainly gotten it right this time. This is the exact order of the winners I would have chosen, namely,
2. Susan Boyle
3. Julian Smith
Alas, in my opinion Julian Smith’s in there only because everyone wants him to win. He’s nowhere near as entertaining as the others are when it comes to performing on a big stage, especially when you come up to play an instrument just after everyone else has wowed the crowd with their singing and dancing and whatnot. However, there’s no doubt he’s good, and definitely deserving of the top 3.
Diversity’s biggest rivals in this competition have undoubtedly been Flawless, but they definitely saved the best for last. Amanda was right when she said Ashley’s (group leader) choreography is second to none. It’s probably the most entertaining choreography I’ve personally witnessed. While technically Flawless is way better than Diversity, overall Diversity just has that extra special something that makes them much more endearing and entertaining.
Now Susan Boyle on the other hand to me was way overrated. Don’t get me wrong, she’s an amazingly talented singer. But the kid, Jaheen Jafargholi, is as good a singer in my books. Yet Susan Boyle received so much more attention because her audition was aired in the first episode of Britain’s Got Talent with an amazing act and story. To me it played a huge part, and of course YouTube did its thing as it did when the net exploded with Signature’s performance during last year’s BGT.
Anyway, congrats to Diversity for a well deserved win.
And really, it’s funny how I’m a Singaporean yet thoroughly enjoy BGT. The hidden talent there is just pretty amazing, especially compared to Singapore’s population of 4 million, there’s barely any artistic talent here.
I’m serious… you should see what a joke Singapore Idol is…Read More
