Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions: Simon Cowell's not impressed with Welsh talent!

Simon Cowell (Britain's Got Talent 2013)

The Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions kicked off yesterday but Simon Cowell didn't seem too impressed with what he saw.

The music mogul apparently took a no nonsense approach to the acts that went before him Wales, and buzzed the first ten to try out.

According to The Sun, BGT boss Simon is hoping to "go back to basics" with the show this year and focus on the talented acts rather than the novelty and the gimmicks.

With X Factor on the wane, it’s doubly important for Simon to make Britain’s Got Talent a success. He believes the only way to do that is with the best acts," a source told the newspaper. “He’s shaking up X Factor and that’s spilling over into BGT.

“Simon is happy to show the rubbish acts getting a pasting in the audition rounds. But for the live finals he’s looking for the seriously unique and astonishing."

The insider added: “Yesterday’s first auditions show saw him take a very no-nonsense approach.

“He’s going back to basics — rubbish acts are buzzed off and good acts put through.”

Speaking before the first auditions, Simon however seems happy about what would be coming out on stage to impress him and his fellow judges.

"It's fun here in Wales, you can sense it by the audience. You always get a good audience," he said.

And Simon added: "Ever since we found Paul Potts here in our first series we'll always come back."
