Standing ovation for Pippa and her singing dog Buddy on Britain's Got Talent

Tomorrow's instalment of Britain’s Got Talent 2011 heads to Birmingham where, for the first time in the competition's history, contestants who have entered via YouTube are about to be seen by the judges. One of the acts is Pippa and her singing dog Buddy - but how do they fare in front of the judges?


Pippa says: "I've had Buddy for five months now, we do everything together and everywhere we go, people just adore him. I work in a pub in Bromsgrove, on the bar but I really enjoy singing, I've done a few weddings, parties, and this is something I really want to do.

"Ideally, my career was solo, but Buddy's talent can't go unmissed. As soon as I found out that Britain's Got Talent were auditioning through YouTube we couldn't wait to record the video and send it off, so that's why we're here today. Buddy is so special and unique, it has to be noticed."

Pippa takes to the stage and sings Pie Jesu with Buddy singing along. The pair get a standing ovation from the audience.

Comic Michael McIntyre says: "We never know what to expect, but this was very surprising, I mean, who knew that was going to happen? And the audience loved it right off the bat, as soon as Buddy belted his head back, 'ooooooooo.'
Congratulations, well done."

Pippa tells the judges that Buddy generally listens to classical and opera music, prompting Amanda to ask: "So he couldn't do any, Lady Gaga, for instance?"

"I could definitely try, but it's up to him, he's quite fussy!" Pippa replies, "Well, we could try to do a remix maybe?"


Britain's Got Talent continues tomorrow night at 8PM on ITV1 and ITV1 HD.
