    So, out of order, no, I don't think so, as such I don't give a damn to his complaint about my comments, is that OK for you?
    Robin itís his opinion, you donít have to agree with it, but there is no need to launch a personal attack on the guy with the ďGet a lifeĒ and ď says more about you ď comment.

    In recent years talent shows seem to focus on people with a sob story , Peter Kay lampooned this back in 2008 with ďBritainís got the pop factor ...and possibly a new celebrity Jesus Christ Soapstar Superstar Strictly on IceĒ

    I watched it last night, thought it was a bit cringeworthy, but it was clever how he made it part of the act, and obviously Iím pleased that the story has a happy ending.

    How is he going to follow it up, canít rehash the same trick can he?

    Re: Britainís Got Talent

    The only bit I saw last night. It made me want to do a bit of sick in my mouth!!! Anyone who uses their kids as props in talent shows should be automatically kicked off IMO. Iíd extend it to pets especially dogs also. Toe curling

    Re: Britainís Got Talent

    It's a talent show and back stories should be irrelevant.
    Whilst I feel dreadfully sorry for any parent with a sick child, (and glad it's ended well), the show is 'Britain's Got Talent' and emotional back stories should not be part of the show ................... ever.
    I believe it's just to garner some support, but I'm a cynical old bugger.
    I thought it was a very poor act, too ................ but the 10yr old boy singing and the guy doing the balancing act were awesome.

    yeah, that got me (in a positive way).


    This shines a light on Britain's Got Talent though.

    Totally agree and these back stories now seem an integral part of any of these talent shows and really shows "the journey the act has been on". It's irrelevant and I want to see who can sing best (these shows really drag these back stories out) or in the case of BGT who has the best and perhaps most unique act.

    Re: Britainís Got Talent

    IMO the act was in very bad taste. IF true - parading and using his family's misfortune to get a TV audience reaction is disgusting and just shows how far we'll stoop in the interests of 'entertainment'. We'll soon have death bed scenes designed to twang the heart string

    It was a pretty standard illusion and without the emotional blackmail it would not have been remembered.

    Re: Britainís Got Talent

    Pure Saturday night cack......but we'll sit and watch it sometimes.
    Worse than magician was the guy in the water tank, naff act based on a faked time limit he could stay under, apparently he used to be dead too, the lock 'picking' as in give the lock a poke and then the judges fake shocked reactions.....it's all too cheesy and old.
    Balancing guy was impressive, rest was pretty same old and naff, never want to hear another choir or watch a dance troupe ever. I do quite like Walliams nonsense though.
    Hopefully will get better. Maybe they should take singers out of it given ITV also have The Voice and XFactor for singers.

    Re: Britainís Got Talent

    I don't know how anyone can watch any of those 'talent shows'...... 95% utter average.
    I'd rather my license fee was spent on people with talent like the old days.

    Re: Britainís Got Talent

    We have given up watching this or X factor.
    Being on every year is too often, plus the number of non British nationals taking part turns us away.
    The sob back stories are unnecessary, just filler to take up time.
    Forever trying.
