REVIEW: Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions
You may have to delve deep into your memory banks to recall the past winners of BGT.
It’s been 13 years since the series started, after all. But you stand very little chance indeed of recognising the other acts in what promises to be the Olympics of Talent, because they’re some of the winners of the 72 versions of Got Talent shows that have gone out around the world.
Reassuringly, the judging panel are familiar faces, as are presenters Ant and Dec.
Each week the judges vote one act through to the final while the audience vote for a second.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t play along at home. The challenge is to decide, say, whether you think Paul Potts’s singing is better than the Ukraine’s Kseniya Simonova’s sand artistry; and whether Boogie Storm’s Star Wars-style dancing beats American father-and-daughter duo Bello and Annaliese Nock’s daredevil circus act.
It’s certainly going to perk up Saturday nights for many of us.
