It’s week two of Britain’s Got Talent and once again there were some colourful acts on display as auditions reached Manchester and London
Christine Wilkes described herself as a “triple threat” but her Michael Jackson impersonations did little to impress the panel
They weren’t too keen on Sinead Carroll’s ‘playing guitar while jumping on a pogo stick’ act either
And ‘Singing Bodybuilder’ James Atchison was given short shrift
However raunchy fire performer Tia Brodie – who wielded flames while wearing very little – made it through to the next round
Magic act Stevie Starr – aka The Regurtitator – also went through after stunning the judges by swallowing a billiard ball and bringing it back up!
This week brought with it another clutch of ‘talented’ animals – including Laika whose owner Melissa claimed could play the guitar. Sadly the pooch didn’t seem that interested
Star The Pig also failed to make an impression, choosing to wander off instead
Snail racing didn’t do much to impress the judges
And teenager Louise Sinclair might have done better with her gymnastic act if her horse Ali hadn’t decided to use the stage as a toilet midway through!
But there were some success stories, such as quirky band The Arrangement
The group impressed judges and audience alike with their classical versions of recent pop hits
Meanwhile drag act Max Oliver did his best Lady Gaga impersonation and divided the panel – Simon hated it but the nod from Piers and Amanda was enough to put him in the next round
However all the judges were wowed by the gymnastic act Spellbound, whose performance featured a human skipping rope
And ‘singing accountant’ Christopher Stone proved the surprise package of the night with his impressive voice
