Well what a surprise from the finale of ‘Britain’s got Talent’ eh!  I must say, from what bits I managed to see, it looked a good night.  I was absolutely made up for Diversity! They really did deserve to win as they were by far the best talent of the night. 

susan-boyle, gracious in defeat, but what a journey she had!

Others did OK though, including Susan Boyle, who I was greatly relieved to see took her defeat (such as it was, though she is probably the global winner) very graciously.  I am glad she didn’t win though, for her own sake.  The media pressure and expectations looked like they were really getting to her.  She actually looked relieved that she came second.  The real winner of course is Simon Cowell, how can this man possibly lose though?

Tomorrow I am going to write about ART!!!!!  Oh yes I am!

I told myself I wasn’t going to bother watching this after last night, which I thought was abysmal.  But I’m so GLAD that I did!  Britain has got talent alright!  and it comes in the form of a 12 year old lad from Wales called Shaheen Jafagholi . Thought this  lad was really good!  Lets hope he gives Susan Boyle a run for her money!

MD SHOW GROUP Fantastic dancers and SHOULD have been in the final!

BUT then again, what about the MD Showgroup from Liverpool!  Who wouldn’t be moved by their energy and passion!  Absolutely FANTASTIC dancing from these kids!!  and YET more competition for the Susan Boyle bandwagon!  The importance of their message and what these youngsters are trying to get across, is something they obviously feel strongly about.  It is a subject that concerns all of us (or should do)

Stavros Flatley WELL DONE!  Not my choice but if you beat Susan Boyle I shall LOVE you!

BUT what happened……… the judges had to choose between my two faves!  I felt so sorry for MD when they got sent home…and Stavros Flatley got through.  What ARE people thinking?  Very Well done Shaheen though!

Been watching and not impressed.  Susan Boyle? never had any preconceived ideas, not having seen the audition…. Just going by last night. In my opinion she sounded well, not so good……. just flat, and rushing all the way through the song. Probably nerves, but even so….. This has to be the most patronising hype I’ve ever seen.  Surely it’s a case of the Emporer ‘s new Clothes ?

Sue Son! Come on! Take the wind away and the tape…..sorry couldn’t hear what was HER and what was the orchestra. Just standing on the stage, legs akimbo with the wind in your hair..and if you hit a bum note ..no one will be able to hear it over the sound of the orchestra, just doesn’t do it for me.  I want to be ENTERTAINED! in short, I want my moneys worth….)

Tonights acts so far have been dire.in my opinion……. when is this talent going to emerge? Having said that though, the dance troups have all  been very good (hard work pays off eh) 

PS  An appearence byEscala, did provide a highlight though: they are a well polished act.
