Britain’s Got Talent 2019 auditions continued on Saturday night and here are the best try outs from the third week.
Based on online hits and shares since the weekend, here are the top four ranked performances.
But who came out on top? Here’s the full countdown…
Akshat confidently proclaimed he was going to “rock” the Palladium as he faced the judges, telling them he has two life mottos: to make everyone happy, and prove that nothing is impossible. He more than lived up to his goals with a slick dance routine set to Nicki Minaj hit ‘Starships’, which had the crowd roaring with applause and the judges on their feet.
After the audition, Ant and Dec ran up to the desk and slammed the Golden Buzzer, sending Akshat straight through to the live shows.
Janice Connolly is already a well-known name on the comedy circuit, and now she’s entered her first ever talent competition as character Barbara Nice (“Barbara as in Streisand, Nice as in the biscuit”). Barb joked about how she owns 49 bags-for-life, so “should never die”, and boasted about her £4.99 designer dress from CPL (Cats Protection League).
Gomonov Knife Show
Belarusian Andrei Gomonov took the terrifying talent of knife-throwing up a level by mounting the judges’ desk to hurl daggers towards the stage, before his unflinching assistant was then strapped to a wheel and covered up, leaving him to blindly throw knives at her as she spun.
In a moment of madness, Simon then volunteered – yes, willingly – to be Andrei’s target, and lived to tell the tale. “I wanted to feel what it’s like. It was terrifying,” explained the media mogul.
Stage performer Brian had appeared in West End shows, but his career ground to a halt following the devastating death of his brother. Finally ready to take a leap of faith, he decided BGT was the right platform for a comeback – and his performance of ‘I’ll Never Love Again’ from A Star Is Born was met with rave reviews from the panel.
“You sing with such passion and intensity, it’s really compelling,” noted David. “It was so delicate. You drew us all in. You did it justice,” gushed Alesha.
Britain’s Got Talent 2019 continues next Saturday night on ITV with the latest auditions.
As always, straight after you can tune in to Britain’s Got More Talent on ITV2 with Stephen Mulhern.
