Britain’s Definitely Got Talent 2012
Britain's Got Talent 2012
It is amazing how Britain’s Got Talent manages to find everything from the enormously talented to the weird and the wonderful.
Week after week the hopeful to the hopeless turn up at the auditions hoping to be lucky enough to be chosen for this highly entertaining talent competition.
This is a competition that even if you don’t win can change your life by you just appearing on the show.
These are just a few of those hopefuls that were lucky enough to be chosen to appear on this year’s show.
If any of the videos won't play on the page just click on the YouTube logo and it will take you directly to the video on YouTube where you can watch it full screen.
Ryan O’Shaughnessy is a 19 year old singer songwriter and in his audition piece, he sings a song that he has written himself.
For a long time Ryan has loved a girl from afar and never had the courage to tell her how he feels. In this song ‘No Name’, he pours out his heart to this mystery girl.
Even David Walliams and Simon Cowell cannot get Ryan to name the mystery girl in his song.
The song certainly hits the spot with the audience as it has them on their feet in a standing ovation at the close of the song.
Ryan receives praise from the whole panel and is through to the next round if you watch the video you will see why.
Charlotte and Jonathan
I love this show because it gives a chance to people who normally would not have a hope of being noticed otherwise.
Before Jonathan and Charlotte begin their song it is clear to see that Simon is totally under whelmed by them.
It is a clear case of judging a book by its cover and I wonder in real life how many times we miss something wondrous because we do that.
This act finishes their song to Simon Cowell saying ‘Wow, wow, wow’ and the audience on its feet in a standing ovation.
Simon thinks that Charlotte although good will hold back Jonathan who he likes to a young Pavarotti.
Simon even goes so far as to tell Jonathan that his head is telling him that Jonathan should dump Charlotte at this the audience booed Simon.
However, Jonathan tells the panel that they came on the show as a duo and they would continue as a duo.
This brought cheers from the audience then all three judges gave this act a yes, which means they go through to the next round.

Ashleigh and Pudsey
Britain’s Got Talent features a wide range of talent not just singers in this next act you will see a dancing dog that will knock your socks off.
If you like super cute and adorable then this is definitely the act for you. Ashleigh dressed in a Flintstone type costume does an amazing dance routine to the theme music of the Flintstones with her super cute dog Pudsey.
This delightful duo managed to get through to the next round and melt the hearts of the audience and panel.

Malaki is a 9 year old boy from London halfway through his audition he starts to cry and his mum comes out to comfort him.
After a few encouraging words from mum he tries again this time he manages to finish singing the Beyonce cover ‘Listen’ and receives a standing ovation.
All four judges give young Malaki a resounding yes, which means that he is through to the next round.
Simon tells Malaki that he is brave and that he will do well because people will like him.
James Ingham and Ed Gleave
This is a comedy duo whose act takes the form of a ventriloquist act with Ed playing the dummy. The dummy (Ed) does some very good impressions of David Walliams one of the judges that make the panel and audience laugh.
All four judges admit that the act was much better and funnier than they thought that it would be.
All four judges gave them a yes and so James and Ed are through to the next round.

Twist and Pulse Dance Company
This dance company was put together by the runners up in the 2010’s edition of Britain’s Got Talent.
Their style is not surprisingly very like that of their founders it is very easily identifiable as a British Dance Company and if you like to watch a group of young people body popping and doing back flips with a little humour thrown in then you will love this act.

Only Boys Aloud
Only Boys Aloud is a 133 member boys only choir from Wales whose ages run from 14 to 19 years of age from the South Wales Valleys.
These boys come from is an area in South Wales that is suffering high unemployment and all the social problems that go along with that.
The aim of the choir is to give these boys an opportunity to do something positive with their lives. Members of the choir tell how being a member has given them a chance to get off the streets and it has changed their lives for the better.
They are an inspiration to listen to both talking and singing. Listen to their rendition of the Welsh favourite Calon Lan. Even though they sing in Welsh, they still manage to bring a lump to the throat and a tear to the eye of both audience and panel members.
Four yeses from the panel send them into the next round.

When this group of pensioners come out on stage, Simon remarks that ‘It is going to be one of those days’ they are still wearing the outdoor clothes and they seem like a bunch of doddering old people.
There act starts predictably enough with Grace the oldest member at 88 singing ‘What the World Needs Now ‘ but then there is a dramatic and unexpected change of direction that takes the audience by storm and has Simon Cowell laughing.
Simon calls Grace a little tiger and the panel gives them four yes votes that send them through to the next round.

I hope that you have enjoyed looking with me at just a little of the British talent in this years Britain’s Got Talent competition.
There were many more that took part but in my opinion these were a good selection of those acts and I feel that they are a good taster for the variety of talent that is showcased on this show.
