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.

Jennifer Lopez gave UK viewers of Simon Cowell's Britains Got Talent a real eyeful on Tuesday night, performing her new single 'Live It Up' while wearing a skimpy black leotard that barely covered her famous behind. Twitter immediately sprang into action, with some parents concerned about the "inappropriate" nature of her performance on what is considered a family show, with some young children actually performing.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a spokesperson for TV regualtor Ofcom said, "Ofcom can confirm that it has received complaints about the Britain's Got Talent broadcast last night, which we are assessing but not currently investigating." One viewer on Twitter said, "BGT does #jenniferlopez realise it's a family show - only thing missing was the pole - cover up your cheeks please!" though judge Simon Cowell was pretty happy with how things went, telling Lopez, "Seriously, J-Lo. If anyone wants to know how you do it. That's how you do it,' he said. "Seriously world class."

For what it's worth, Lopez herself seemed pretty oblivious to any concerns and happily posted an Instagram of the R&B star being held up by various dancers. "Thanks @GotTalent for a great night #liveitup," she added.
