BGT - The Champions

Britain`s Got Talent is back with Britain`s Got Talent - The Champions, which kicked off on Saturday night.

The series will feature acts from past series of Britain`s Got Talent and its counterparts from other countries.

Each week, two acts will go through to the final - one "Golden Buzzer", chosen by the judges or Ant and Dec; and one chosen by superfans from various countries.

In the first programme, none of the former Britain`s Got Talent acts made it through to the final three.

The act which nabbed Amanda Holden`s Golden Buzzer was Kseniya Simonova – a former winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent, who makes stunning pictures and images using only sand.

The act voted through by the superfans was daredevil duo Bello and Annaliese Nock, who previously had appeared on America’s Got Talent.

 

I found the programme was an entertaining mix. I loved Kseniya`s stunning images and think she was a worthy winner.

In my opinion, if the talent of the two winning acts is anything to go by, this should be a thoroughably watchable and enjoyable series.

 

Did anyone else watch it? What did you think?

Re: BGT - The Champions

I've not watched BGT The Champions, but I have seen AGT The Champions as it's on Netflix. I'll definitely check this one out, by the sound of it it was a very exciting show star

Re: BGT - The Champions

I watched it as I always watch BGT every year. I thought it was excellent.

The Sacred Rhiana was one of the most terrifying acts I have seen. Her magic was excellent but frightening. Also those godawful dolls!!

 

I'm not sure I would have voted for the sand artist. What she did was stunning but of course she also had a back story, ie did a lot of work for people with cancer.

 

I think Ashleigh was brave to come back with Pudsey's brother Sulley.  I don't think those Storm troopers deserved such a high placing. Nothing compares to Diversity and I hope they make an appearance.

 

I also do NOT like this new method of voting. Superfans indeed. Could lead to a lot of bias. Should be a public vote.

Re: BGT - The Champions

Watched it and was totally underwhelming to be frank. The condescending sickly sweet comments were so over the top from the panel. Golden buzzer is /was a joke. I wouldn't pay tuppence to see any of the acts.... ever!

The Saturday night highlight for me was binge-watching Jessica Jones on Netflix.

Re: BGT - The Champions

Looks good @Mi-Amigo  I loved Lost Voice guy.

My problem is, there is a 10 minute clash with SCD which finishes at 20.40 and BGT starts at 20.30.

I am recording BGT, so hopefully it wont take me too long to catch up with all the adverts etc.

Re: BGT - The Champions

I agree @Cleoriff , it does look a good line up. Like the old days of Saturday night variety.

I too like Lost Voice Guy and looking forward to seeing if the ventrioquist and girl/dog act are any good.
