Britain's Got Talent Semi-Final Round Up

Diversity and Susan Boyle through first night, though Susan showed signs of nerves and vocally, it wasn’t as strong although she picked up at the end. Disappointed in Natalie - seemed to age from around 8 to 13, I’d like to have heard her do another slower R&B song, like Rihanna’s Take a Bow. Likewise Sue Son - should have stuck with the boho chick attitude instead of going for the glam/sexy Vanessa Mai look. As for Darth Jackson - the storm troopers on their own would have been far more entertaining, in fact, a proper themed Star Wars Thriller with decent dancers would have been great. Jamie Pugh was far too nervous and it showed, so Sean Smith and Flawless, who both delivered, went through. Stavros Flatley, although not as strong as the audition, made it through, as did Shaheen, although again, not the best performance - the singers have disappointed so far - my favourite at this stage is Diversity. And you know what - apart from saxophonist Julian Smith, I can’t recall anyone else yet to come! And can someone tell me why the judges buzz the acts they themselves put through? Hel-loo, duh!

And on a different subject, it turns out the Buffy movie I’d heard about won’t be involving Joss Whedon, or any of the regular supporting cast. So it’ll be about a vampire slayer called Buffy - BUT IT WON’T BE BUFFY! I say again: Hel-looo, duh! How to alienate the majority of your projected audience in one fell swoop!

Unfortunately Scatty I am that sad that I can say who is left to come :o) Though I'm not sure on which nights they will be:

Julian Smith - Saxaphone player
Michael Macham - Guitar Player (an awful one at that!)
Sugar Free - Girl dance group
Brit Chix - Girlband
Fred Bowers - Breakdancing Grandad
Aidan Davis - Breakdancing kid
2 Grand - Grandfather + Granddaughter singing duo
Luke Clements - Juggler
Good Evans - Singing family
Hollie Steel - Singer and dancer
Dreambears - Comedy dance act
Fabia Cerra - Dancer (if you can call it dancing!)
Tippy toes - Dancing dog, can't remember the name of the owner who dances with it.
Gregg Pritchard - Soprano singer (creepy!)
Callum Francis - Singing kid
There's also another large dance troupe, but can't recall their name at this moment.

Cool right? lol ;o) Gotta say, they keep banging on about how overwhelmed they were by the talent this year. I think so far the semi's have definitely been below standard compared to the 2 previous series!

so I'm thinking Julian and Aidan to go through, with half a dozen of the others fighting it out for the last two spots- let's hope these two aren't on the same night.
Overall, not been good semis have they? Judges got it severerly wrong (excepting the ones that have made it to the final)

I'm pretty sure Julian is tongiht and Aidan is tomorrow. Think breakdancing grandad is tonight too - bless him :o)

Diversity is definitely my favourite (though I do have a soft spot for Stavros Flately - hilarious!) but I am becoming increasingly resigned to the fact that Susan Boyle will probably take the crown :o(
