Britain’s Got Talent 2019: Barbara Nice’s jokes impress the judges

Comedian Barbara Nice was one of the latest acts hoping to win over the Britain’s Got Talent judges this week.


Try outs for this year’s Britain’s Got Talent were back on Saturday night at 8PM on ITV.

Returning to the judging panel once more are Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.

And Ant and Dec will be back watching on from the sidelines, guiding the acts through the process.

One of the contestants auditioning this weekend was Barbara Nice.

The comedian came equipped with an array of one-liners, which had the judges in hysterics.


Barbara then finished her audition by crowd surfing to the judges desk, where she ended up buzzing herself.

With four yeses from the judges, Barbara made it through to the next round.

Another act we meet this weekend is singer Brian Gilligan. He takes to the stage to perform a heartfelt version of ‘I’ll Never Love Again’ from A Star Is Born.

As always, acts will need at least three yeses from the judges to get through – or the elusive golden buzzer.

Currently Alesha, Amanda and Ant & Dec have all still to use the golden buzzer this year, which sends an act straight through to the semi-finals.

Those that get through this weekend will join those from last Saturday, which included young singer Kerr James. The 12-year-old shocked with his cover of Otis Redding’s Try A Little Tenderness.


Also last weekend, Jonathan Goodwin amazed as he escaped from a straightjacket while on fire before stand up comic Kojo Anim won the golden buzzer from Simon Cowell.

As things stand, bookmakers have Kojo as the joint favourite to win BGT alongside a group of dancing students of Flakefleet Primary School Choir.

They won the golden buzzer in the first episode from David Walliams, who was left in tears by their uplifting performance to Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now.


Britain’s Got Talent’s thirteenth series airs Saturday nights on ITV.

The live semi final stages will follow later this year, as acts compete to win a £250,000 cash prize and a spot on the Royal Variety Performance.
