Comedian Simon Brodkin Claims 'Britain's Got Talent' Auditions Are Manipulated


Britain's Got Talent

Notorious prankster Simon Brodkin, also known under his comedian personality Lee Nelson, has claimed that the producers of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ manipulated acts auditioning for the show in order to fit an agenda, having infiltrated the process last month.

Brodkin posed as Orthodox Jewish rapper Steven Goldblatt on the show in January in order to get an insight into the auditioning process as part of a new Channel 4 documentary, according to a report by The Mirror on Monday (February 6th).

He secretly recorded what he went through during an eight-hour audition at ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ which ended up with him receiving four ‘yes’ votes from the panel of judges, who include Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.

Not Willing To Take Simon Cowell's Shtick, Britain's Got Talent Act Walk Off Stage


Simon Cowell Britain's Got Talent

‘Britain’s Got Talent’ head honcho Simon Cowell was left staggered after one of the acts auditioning for a place in this year’s series simply walked off stage, rather than remain to face criticism from him.

A report emerging on Friday (January 20th) claims that the extraordinary reaction came during auditions this week in Blackpool, when a 37-strong choir called Dale Divas had attempted to impress the panel of judges, headed by Cowell, with a version of Adele’s ‘Rolling In the Deep’.

Fifth Harmony Panned For Being "Tuneless" And "Boring" On 'Britain's Got Talent'


Fifth Harmony Britain's Got Talent

‘Britain’s Got Talent’ viewers were busy on social media again last night, this time panning the live performance by Simon Cowell’s American girl group Fifth Harmony for being “flat, tuneless and boring” during Thursday night’s semi-final.

The five-piece group were formed in 2012 on the second season of ‘The X Factor USA’, and are currently the world’s highest-selling girl group, with a social media following of over three million and signed to ‘BGT’ judge Cowell’s Syco label.

They performed as special guests during the interlude between the judges picking the last finalists for this weekend’s season closer, with a rendition of their recent UK Top 10 hit ‘Work From Home’. However, Twitter users were quick to jump on them, criticising their stylisation, choreography and singing.

‘Britain’s Got Talent’ viewers on social media are calling for judge Alesha Dixon to be kicked off the panel after she described one act on the show as “sexy chocolate men” on Wednesday night's semi-final.

The 37 year old singer, formerly of noughties girl group Mis-Teeq, made the remark while praising the opera group Vox Fortura after they gave a rendition of David Bowie’s ‘”Heroes”’. Four sexy chocolate men,” she said as they finished, “with amazing voices, polished to perfection. That was sensational.”

Immediately, irate fans took to Twitter to call for Dixon to make a public apology for the reference, while others demanded that she be fired from the show.

'Britain's Got Talent' Misled The Public Over Stunt Double Dog, Ofcom Report Says


Britain's Got Talent

ITV is offering a refund to any fans of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ who voted by phone or text for the competition’s winner Jules O’Dwyer and her performing dog Matisse, after Ofcom ruled that a performance involving stunt double dogs was misleading.

The broadcasting regulator determined that the talent show was likely to have inadvertently misled viewers after a lookalike dog was used instead of Matisse to perform a tightrope walking routine during the live final. ITV received 1,175 complaints when the incident was uncovered the week after the final episode at the end of May 2015.

In delivering their report, Ofcom said that ITV broke rule 2.14 of the broadcasting code which states “broadcasters must ensure that viewers and listeners are not materially misled about any broadcast competition or voting.”

Richard And Adam Living The Impossible Dream After Britain's Got Talent

TV talent show winners haven’t been so successful of late; think The X-Factor’s James Arthur and The Voice’s Leanne Mitchell. But Britain’s Got Talent Winners – Richard and Adam – have topped the U.K album charts following their third-place finish on Britain’s Got Talent.

In doing so, they beat another talent-show product, x factor runner-up Jahmene Douglas, off the top spot. Richard and Adam’s profile was raised somewhat when a woman ran on stage to throw eggs at Simon Cowell for his influence on the music business.

Their album - The Impossible Dream - features hearty renditions of The Power of Love, Unchained Melody, Amazing Grace and Ave Maria. "It's amazing - you've made our Nan extremely happy, so thank you to each and everyone of you who's bought the album," Adam told the Official Charts Company.

Britain’s Got Talent Egg Thrower Is ‘A Stupid Cow’ According To Amanda Holden


Amanda Holden Simon Cowell Britain's Got Talent

She may not have got a single eggy molecule on her dress, but Amanda Holden is furious with Natalie Holt Britain’s Got Talent’s egg-wielding rebel. She labeled her a ‘stupid cow’ as the rest of her bandmates denounced her actions.

It seems some people have forgotten than throwing eggs is funny, and throwing eggs at someone like Simon Cowell is even funnier. But she didn’t just throw eggs at someone like Cowell, it was Cowell. Conclusion? Very, very funny. “During tonight’s show an incident took place during the finale of Richard and Adam’s performance,” said an official statement from the show. “Natalie Holt (age 30) was part of the backing group for their performance and as a result of her misguided actions the police were called. However, we have decided to take no further action at this stage.” Holt, too, seems to have forgotten how funny egg chucking is, and has said sorry for her actions. “I want to apologise to Richard and Adam for overshadowing their performance. I’ve never done anything like this before and in hindsight I have realised it was a silly thing to do.”

So Cowell took it well, Richard and Adam continued their performance in a professional manner, no action is being taken against Holt, and Holden still has a sour look on her face, and is calling people cow. Everything’s fine.
