Oh please don't. I have no idea how that guy got through to the semi finals....

As for the things @pgn  posted, dont bother with those either. The African countries used them at every match they played in during a World Cup series and they were bloody horrendous Shirty

I agree @jonsie . As lovely as the Chelsea Pensioner was , people voted with their hearts. I think the young lads in the band and the older guy who did magic and comedy deserved a place. I wasn't even impressed with the comedian who got through on the judges vote. He didn't make me laugh at all.

Totally agree @jonsie and @Cleoriff 

The one thing which I find annoying with BGT is the sympathy votes by the public and judges. I mean we have had, in the past, that dreadful magician who came on in his miltary uniform; and this year we have the copper and his "mindreading" dog. Sure, the magician served his country; and the dog saved the police officer`s life and both should be recognised - but this is not a "hero" worship programme but about talent. And I didn`t find the comedian amusing at all.

Having said that we have had some very good acts and I do enjoy the show because it is variety.

My fav? The four young magicians - brilliant.

The trouble with the programme @Mi-Amigo  is each night the level of the acts should be the same.

For instance I didn't enjoy Tuesday much at all. The level of nearly every act was poor. (apart from the 4 young magicians.)

I thinks that's the reason the woman who is trying to be Victoria Wood and failing badly imo, got through.
