Britain's Got Talent 2013: Hopefuls Superpowerless blast 'staged' show


Britain's Got Talent 2013 wannabes Superpowerless have blasted the show after they auditioned for the panel this month.

The geeky music group, led by singer Oliver Hindle, claim they were invited on to the show to audition but were just made a joke of.

In an open letter to the show's producers, Oliver says he is making a "formal" complaint over the way he and his bandmates were treated at the try outs in London last week.

He said: "On the day of our audition in London we were "interviewed" by Stephen Mullhern, who had made a lot of assumptions about us and specifically targeted his questions in a negative and offensive manner.

"We were asked repeatedly whether we have girlfriends, if our families are embarrassed and how old we are - insinuating that we were too old to be doing this. Stephen proceeded to claim there was "hope for everyone" after we answered that we all do in fact have girlfriends."

And he hit out at Alesha for being rude, but insisted he wasn't bothered about not getting through.

He added: "I don't mind too much that Alessia was rude and the judges didn't put us through. I understand the nature of the competition and I think it's fair if they didn't like it."

A spokesman for the show said: “Britain’s Got Talent is a variety show which offers all kinds of acts the opportunity to showcase talents. All acts are judged on their performance on the day.”
