Britain’s Got Talent judges left in stitches by Ben Langley’s misheard lyrics

Ben Langley had the Britain’s Got Talent judges in stitches this weekend.


As auditions for the new series continued on Saturday, we met comedian Ben and his lyrical lols.

You’ll never listen to your favourite songs in the same way again after watching Ben’s hilarious audition.

Ben told the judges: “It all started when I went to see the Lion King.

“I must have misheard something because I thought the first song was about the Arsenal club football manager.”

“And I thought maybe there are other songs where you can hear they’re singing something different.”


Ben then revealed his list of misheard lyrics, along with some unique dance moves.

Songs given the misheard lyric treatment by Ben included Dancing Queen by Abba, Just Dance by Lady GaGa, Start Me Up by The Rolling Stones, Flashdance (What A Feeling) by Irene Cara and I’m Every Woman by Chaka Khan plus I Want It That Way by Backstreet Boys.

You can watch Ben’s performance in the video above.

After his routine, the judges gave Ben four yeses through to the next round.

Other acts this week included cake eating opera singer Sarah Llewellyn.

Just when you thought you’d seen it all on Britain’s Got Talent along came Sarah to flip the script with her one-of-a-kind act and showed that auditioning for the Judges is a piece of cake.

Making up the judging panel this year once more are Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.


As always, acts need three or more yeses to make it through to the next round – and potentially on to the live shows.

There’s also the golden buzzer, which currently only Amanda Holden has yet to press.

At the end of the series, just one act will walk away with £250,000 and a spot on the Royal Variety Performance.

Meanwhile, hosts Ant and Dec will be present for the auditions, watching on from the sidelines with a comforting hug whatever the result.


Britain’s Got Talent continues Saturday nights on ITV.

Plus, More Talent airs straight after the main show on ITV2.
