BGT: REAformed impress Alesha but Jack Pack ones to watch
From an illusionist to an impressionist via a Tin Man dance to a girl group, we witnessed all kinds of acts trying to impress the judges on Britain’s Got Talent this weekend.
If you missed any of the fun and games on this week’s show fear not as News.Ladbrokes takes you through some of the best (and worst!) acts to feature on last Saturday’s show.
Every show needs a man band with a difference! BGT now has its very own with crooners Jack Pack, who performed a version of That’s Life. The swing band slot straight in at 10/1 with Ladbrokes to win the show after wowing judges David, Amanda and Alesha with their rendition of the Frank Sinatra classic.
Remember body popping sensation George Sampson? The 20-year-old street danced his way to winning the second series of BGT as a 14-year-old. But now he may just have a rival in 17-year-old Kieran Lai, whose Tin Man dance routine proved a hit with the audience and the judges. The self-taught dancer from Essex is a 14/1 shot for glory.
Alesha Dixon shocked everyone when she gave REAformed a ticket to the next round by pressing her golden buzzer. The three-piece girl-group, who are 25/1 to win the show, looked the part but with their vocals a bit pitchy they will need to up their game if they are to pay back Alesha’s support.
There was no way Patsy May was going to be left feeling blue after her rendition of Dream A Little Dream. The British-born singer from New York stole the hearts of the nation – and BGT supremo Simon Cowell – with her adorable performance alongside hosts Ant and Dec. But in true BGT style this no ordinary singer – the blue puppet is 50/1 for glory!
When appearing on BGT it pays to be weird – and awful! Simon Cowell described Jenson Zhu’s impersonations of the Bee Gees and Elvis as some of the “worst he has ever seen or heard on the show!” But that did not stop the 37-year-old, who had the rest of the panel in stitches with his dreadful impressions, reaching the next round and he is one of the outsiders to go all the way at 200/1.
