Britain's Got Talent 2016

The tenth series started on Saturday night and the early favourite is 12 year old singer Beau Dermott after she gets the first Golden Buzzer. I don't think she can go 'wire-to-wire' and win. There's always a twist and a betting sting with a Simon Cowell production. ... -audition/


Breakdown of previous winners ~

3 - Singers (Paul Potts, Jai McDowell, Collabro)
3 - Dancers (George Sampson, Diversity, Spelbound)
2 - Dog acts (Ashleigh & Pudsey, Jules O'Dwyer & Matisse & 'friends')
1 - Shadow theatre (Attraction)'s ... s_overview

I do not care for it at all but have followed the odds movement over the years with morbid interest. Sometimes the favourites do win. sometimes they don't much like last year's fairly surprising result.

Missed Alesha Dixon pressing her Golden Buzzer for 100 Voices of Gospel. ... l-furious/

David Walliams pressed his for *COUGH* Ian & Anne Marshall. ... e-streets/

Darn it. Photobucket is playing up.

Here are updated odds after week three from William Hill:


Not watching the show so have no idea what most of these acts do.

Jasmine Elcock gets the Golden Buzzer as...Ant and Dec went for her!? They have a Golden Buzzer!?

Simon has yet still to press his if that's the case. ... hes-at-it/

Insta-odds from William Hill for week four:


Quick reaction from glancing at the odds suggest Another Kind of Blue sort of justifies being the favourite being a mixture of what 'BGT' acts and being gimmicky. They're mostly not British but who cares!?

All four acts that have had Golden Buzzers so far have been singing acts...which is a bit odd.

I'd say Richard Jones has a chance of doing a Jamie Raven to be in the final three in that he stands out amongst a sea of singers (and when 100 Years of Gospel are on stage that'll be quite literal!), and viewers may respond to someone being other than a singer.
The 'BGT' producers backing him up after Debbie McGee accused him of nicking one of Paul Daniels' tricks helps his cause. ... ck-7795499

I don't give Vox Fortis a chance in hell. Non-white men on Simon Cowell shows do NOT do well, with Andy Abraham and Marcus Collins still the best placed finishers finishing second behind Shayne Ward and Little Mix respectively on 'The X Factor' back in 2005 and 2011.

Quite a few acts on this year's 'BGT' have had 'professional experience' such as Beau Dermott and Jasmine Elcock.

Some people are getting het up about Ben Blaque and his crossbow...who was a finalist over on 'America's Got Talent' back in 2012. Simon Cowell has claimed never to have seen an act like his before...s'funny considering he's an executive producer of that show. ... rm-7871618

Simon Cowell pressed his Golden Buzzer for Boogie Storm...some dancers dressed up as Stormtroopers from 'Star Wars' dancing to pop music. ... o-perfect/

It'd be typical if a 'protest vote' for Boogie Storm made them somehow win this but I doubt the producers will ever let it get that far. Dog acts? Yes. Twice.

The show is already a mockery and is almost beyond parody though.

Mother and daughter duo Ana and Fla Almanda has Amanda Holden in tears... ... dges-away/

...whilst David Walliams plays up his pretend gay side for the umpteenth time. Josh Curnow, the unlucky fella this time. ... irlfriend/

Now Eurovision is over, I can start to pay a little more attention to BGT.

Just a watching brief for me at present though. Thanks for posting the prices which are useful reference as the market forms.

Simon Cowell reveals his favourite ever dog acts on 'BGT'. :sarcasm: ... -surprise/

Richard Jones moves to the head of the market all of a sudden...based on what though!?

Insta-odds from William Hill:


Far too many singers for my liking and something surely has to to give. Richard Jones and Another Kind of Blue still heading the market is indication of something...not sure what though.

I'd be worried if I was Christian Lee because of Richard Jones. He seems like the producers' 'go to' magician and there surely won't be two in the final.
