Trivia

20 million people, which is 54% of the audience and one third of Britain's population tuned into the 2009 final on May 30th; this was the year Susan Boyle came to fame. It was also the first time she sang publicly since her famous audition. The demand to hear her sing meant the show had to be streamed on the Internet at the same time. Everyone in Blackburn, Boyle's hometown, tuned in for it. Some people nicknamed it the Susan Boyle show that year. Over 3 million bet on the outcome of the show, rivaling the importance of the FA Cup Final. It was a whole 16 seconds before Ant and Dec announced Diversity were the winners. They won 24.9% to Boyle's 20.2%. People read the newspapers not to know who won but if Boyle had lost. Her defeat even made headlines in Azerbaijan, an Eastern European country on the Caspian Sea.

Britain's Got Talent ? I Beg To Differ
30 May 2009 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

It's impossible to pick up a British tabloid without reading about the newest media star created by this show . I decided to ignore it since it's lumpen nonsense . The panel itself was enough to give the show a miss

Piers Morgan . A former Fleet Street editor of a rag called The Daily Mirror . Morgan's main claim to fame is that he published obviously faked pictures of soldiers " torturing " suspects at a Basra army base . Anywhere else in the world this would have led to him facing charges of treason but after being sacked by the paper his career really took off in a big way . Only in Britain

Amanda Holden . An actress who is famous for being Amanda Holden , which tells you how well she's made a career out of being an actress

Simon Cowell . Okay fair enough

The word talent is very vague . On Britain's Got Talent it seems " talent " is a euphemism of " gimmick " . You got a family pet that can tap dance then have a go on this show . If you're a talented human being who can play an invisible musical instrument or juggle wheelbarrows then audition and you'll be chosen for the semi finals . If you're even less talented than your peers then don't worry because " talent " can be an euphemism for " sob story victim "

Actually this is why the show is so objectionable - it's highly manipulative . Someone comes on and says they've had a close family relative die recently , or they've reached middle age without receiving a french kiss and everyone will fall over themselves to improve the victim's life . Perhaps the worst personification of this was ten year old Hollie Steel bursting in to tears and being told by the producers she's blown her chance . Cue more banshee like wailing from young Hollie that led to Simon saying " I don't know how but we'll find time to give you a second chance . I can see young Hollie having a career as an actress since talent or a lack of it has never stopped Amanda Holden being famous

But this show has nothing to do with anything resembling talent does it ?
