We are now five weeks into the 13th series of Britain’s Got Talent and is it already the worst series ever?
As auditions continue to roll on, it is looking more and more like this series is shaping up to be the worst in a long time. The judges have set through acts that have been below standard and even the golden buzzer acts haven’t been memorable.
Hosts Ant and Dec seem to have the worst golden buzzer at this point, putting through a 13-year-old dancer but in reality, he should have not have been given a place in the live shows. Simon Cowell gave his golden buzzer to comedian Kojo Anim, which looks more like he wanted to help out Alesha’s friend.
From the other talent that has gone through, very few are memorable and don’t really seem like their acts can do much more following the audition stage. The mysterious magician “X” who used Ant and Dec in their act is one of the few I remember.
David’s Golden Buzzer for the choir was nice but choir’s rarely do well on these “Got Talent” shows. Alesha’s golden buzzer act seems to be the best one so far while we wait on Amanda’s.
To make things worse, Cowell and the rest of the judges seem to be going through all the motions this series. In fact, Cowell used his “I didn’t like it, I loved it!” line both in BGT and AGT Champions, so it really is becoming predictable.
For those who thought the 2011 series that was won by Jai McDowall was bad, this year seems to be worse. The singing acts are mediocre, the dance acts are average, and the variety is easily just bad.
The only good acts seem to be a few magic acts and dangerous acts, which even then are slightly under par for this show.
Perhaps Cowell is looking forward to Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions, which is coming later this year.
Or maybe after 13 years, Britain has run of out talent.
Britain’s Got Talent airs Saturdays at 8 pm on ITV.
