Youth talent shines through as Britains Got Talent continues

| 20.04.2015

Another week and another show of British talents, from cow bell ringing, to bagpipe bands, to an elderly man on roller skates firing a puppet from cannon.

But here at Ladbrokes we are only interested in the crème de la crème of the Britain’s Got Talent entrants.

With week 2 bringing us a plethora of amusement, we’ve picked three of the best on Saturday’s show.


After Simon Cowell used his one Golden Buzzer to put singer Calum Scott straight through to the live shows, it was Ant and Dec’s turn to give an act a free pass.

The group of friends wowed the judges with their well-choreographed routine to Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk, with flips and cartwheels aplenty.

Apparently together for just a year, they have already struck controversy having allegedly ‘deceived’ the show having already appeared on Sky’s ‘Got to Dance’.

All we know is they are 7/1 shots to take the series.

Henry Gallagher

Another act that has seen some choice words written about him following his successful audition.

The 12-year-old showcased a song of his own named ‘Lightning’, which predictably had Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon cooing over the youngster.

Introduced to the betting as a 12/1 shot, some eagle-eyed viewers were quick to point out all might not be what it seems.

Not only is the youngster a good singer, but also a talented magician, with his guitar’s capo moving up the neck mid song.

Jesse-Jane McParland

You might think the idea of giving a nine-year-old a four foot long sword and sending them onto the stage to deliver numerous flips and flying-kicks is a bad idea, however we beg to differ.

Jeese-Jane McParland from County Antrim has already racked up a whopping 117 martial arts titles in her short career to date, and it’s easy to see why.

The youngster oozed confidence as she showed why it’s probably not wise to mess with her.

At 50/1, the market says she will need to improve, but her first audition was certainly a winner.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
