"Talent or Talentless ?"

Britain’s Got Talent is one of those reality shows yet again we see every year without fail and it shows you how desperate some people are to become famous and make a name for themselves.

The show features three judges, Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden and they are there to choose which go through each episode and which sadly do not.
The idea behind the show is that anyone at any age can show up to show the judges a talent they have got. Whether this is dancing or singing to becoming a magician either way you will get to see their act.

The judges have a buzzer each and if they do not like the act during the 2 minute performance they are allowed to give the buzz in. If all three judges buzz in the act has to stop and listen to the judges and usually they comment on why they buzzed and usually it is Simon Cowell who has buzzed and the other two tend to not have done it.

The show is one of those which is trying to get through a new talent in the United Kingdom and yes it is one of those which I think sometimes can deliver a new performer, Paul Potts won the first year and in my view he was fantastic and then we have Susan Boyle.

The show will have a few auditions take place and the two hosts Ant and Dec bring a bit of light humour and commentary to the performances and then once auditions have ended they have the live shows each night for a week where the public vote who they want to survive to the final.
Whoever wins the final which usually involves around 8 performers they get to go onto the royal variety performance in front of the Queen and perform and win a small amount of money at the same time?

The incentive is there to win because of the golden opportunity at the end of it all to perform in such a high profiled event but you also get seen by millions of viewers each week that will grow to be fans of yours.
I get the idea of the show but there are a few problems I find which they do not mention to the people who perform at all.

The last year the performer we are all aware of named Susan Boyle she came from this show and she is a fantastic talent. A quiet lady who had this incredible voice and she had no look at all like a Popstar. You have a show which highlights a huge talent but they the show lets that talent suffer, because during the weeks leading up to the final which she sadly did not win she had to endure constant media pressure which is not fair on anyone at all and it made her ill.

I like the shows format and how it works and how they give all ages and genders and types of performers a chance but the media are the biggest problem behind the show.

You then have got another problem which is not me personally but comments I have heard from friends because the title of the show is Britain’s got Talent and yet acts travel from America or they travel from Europe to appear on the show and they are not from Britain and sometimes I think the title of the show is quite deceptive and I do agree at times with those people who make those snide comments over where someone comes from who appears on the show.

There is some acts who turn up on this show who should know better, they try and sing when they are terrible and then you have some performers who are truly fantastic and do not make the final. They never make the final because a silly dance act gets through and this sadly is a huge problem with the show.

They have so many dance act performers usually a younger generation attempting to dance well and they do alright but the judges tend to put them all through and when it comes to the live shows each night there is a couple of these performers taking part and they have taken a place away from another performer who is different which I think is wrong in my view.

They need to try and focus on what the crowd cheers for, because if they put through a performer who is not exactly cheered by the live audience they perform the auditions in front of then it makes the show a mockery and silly.

If the crowd is screaming for a performer who they want to see advance and the judges do not send them through it is just not the correct idea in my view, the talent will only survive if the audience likes them so why not send them through if the crowd goes crazy for them?.

I think the show could be improved in many ways such as having the live shows on every weekend or two a week rather than one every night when people cannot view them all which is perhaps unfair to people who have a favourite and cannot get a chance to see the show and vote.

I think the judging panel needs altering, I like Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan but Amanda Holden I struggle to see what she is actually doing there considering she has not really done much besides acting in her career so he giving advance on performers is quite laughable in all honesty.

    If Britain really has talent it's unlikely to appear on this show.

    Very good, and completely agree with you about Ms. Holden, who appears to only have a talent for wrecking marriages
