The title seems to be a misnomer, from the limited clips i have seen.

Spellbound are the favourites.

Risky bet.

Postby Systemsman » Sun May 16, 2010 3:15 pm

This is a very very risky bet with so many votes from mums and grans going to the cutest/youngest performers every year and not the best act (there shuld be a mimimum age of 16!!). I think the programme needs a traditonal winner and has been waiting for one (amazing that so few good professional comedians, singers,club acts etc dont go in for it) so Paul Burling would appeal to all and is my idea of what the winner should be if he can keep up a high standard in the next rounds - the last thing the programme needs ina nother street dance act (although I did find Twist & Pulse amuzing, genuine and a bit different - however they are not the "imnnocents" they look and have been around the street dancing scene a fair bit).

Paul Burling was a great impressionist but didnt really seem to have much material, pretty much did the impressions without being funny and thats fine for a round or two but he will need to expand his act if he is to win it.

Dammo, i was watching This Morning, yesterday, and the guy that presents Britains Got More Talent predicts Paul Berling will win the show.. He says he has better material to come and does mean impressions of Del Boy and a few of the old English Classics away from cartoons.. I cant have an impressionist on my mind right now for the comp though!

Theres been alot of good acts this year but no standouts and at this stage the only ones i think with a "winning act" could be Spellbound

Dammo Qwirky "...... and thats fine for a round or two but he will need to expand his act if he is to win it."

Agreed 100% but if he can pull out some good material he will appeal to very wide section of voters.

At the moment he looks top 3 material if he can be funny as well as do more good impersonations.

Street dancing NO No No!
Kids dancing groups - Nooooooooooo!

Was doing a bit of research, bet that jumped out to me with ratings, views etc, was The Chippendales at 80's, missed there episode though, so ended up watching it, and liked it alot, only worry with them though is i can't see whats coming next, as the suprise that made the act, can't really be used again :?

Spellbound, really good & sure to make it to the finals, of the kiddie singers I thought Olivia Archbold was the best.

Paul Burlings impressions were excellent, depends how much he's got left in the tank. Some good streetdancers but after 2 years with George Sampson & Diversity, change needed.

My moneys on the doorman singer, Neil Fullard @ 25-1.
He's got natural singing voice, which will only improve with the coaching their bound to get, also get him dressed up & he'll improve at least 7lb :lol:

If he sings the Billy Joel song used for the John Lewis Advert, I'd make him a dead cert :P

amazing that so few good professional comedians, singers,club acts etc dont go in for it
Not in the slightest bit amazed when considering how many good jobbing entertainers and club acts have previously been ruined, by not only entering these competitions, but also wining them

Take, 90% of the acts that have apperaed on the Old Stars in Thier Eyes show.

Immediatly pigeon holed as one trick ponies and suddenly working once a month as a tribute act instead of the 4 times a week as a good quality vocalist in the clubs and holiday centres.

These types of shows can be a graveyard for genuine proffessional cabaret acts, and they rightly steer clear. The stakes are far too high
When you're told you can't do something, do it and prove them wrong

Well im hoping the impresionist is a fair price as thats who im on,i do think he has more up hes sleeve like soap stars,politicians etc,but i sure think he will be in the top 5 and maybe able to make a profit by backing to Lay back. :win:

Abysmal value as barely into semis. Extra views likely as its already had its semi.
