Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions: Episode 2 recap


The Britain's Got Talent 2013 auditions continued in force tonight on ITV, and here's a run down of what happened.

The show started with a man dressed as The Sting, pushing another bloke who was sitting in a wheelchair wearing a bald cap.

Needless to say the singers - as it turned out - didn't get a single yes after their bizarre act.

The pair set the tone for the start of the show, which also saw a dancer who "didn't know what she was going to give" the judges and a stand up comedian who had "never done it before".

Fortunately we then met teenagers [tag]AJ and Chloe[/tag], ballroom dancers who reminded us immediately of last year's finalists Kai and Natalie.


The pair's uptempo and modern performance got Alesha's approval, with the former Strictly judge describing it as "slick and sexy," and her fellow judges agreed as the two teenagers got four yeses into the next round.

Singing brothers Richard and Adam Johnson were up next, singing "for their nan." The duo lit up the audience and the judges with their powerful cover of The Impossible Dream to sail through into the next round.

Another singing duo, Two Days, didn't fare so well. They told the judges that they hoped their rap would leave the audience wanting to get up and join in, but it only left them wanting to get up and leave the building.

Another string of acts were then seen splitting the judges, starting with daring tap dancer James Devine. Both Alesha and Amanda loved his act while Simon and David weren't so impressed, and with three yeses need to make it through it was bad news for James.

Dance group Pop’arazzi Crew however ended up splitting the panel to the point that the girls to storm out, leaving Simon and David alone judging the next performer, 51-year-old Neil Hook.

"Hello, welcome to Britain’s Got Talent. My name is Alesha Dixon," David quipped as Neil takes to the stage.

The pair took glee in being alone on the panel and put singer Neil through, much to his delight.

After making up backstage, all four of the judges are back for the next act, a dance trio called CEO Dancers, whose performance to Single Ladies had all of the panel on the same page again, and Simon rather excited.

David told the group: "I'd love to learn how to shake my booty like that."

This evening's latest episode also saw plenty of younger stars, with 15-year-old singer Tariq Wooding and 5-year-old dancer Jordan Nash both wowing the judges to get through into the next round.

Also singing for the judges this evening was [tag]Jordan O'Keefe[/tag], who revealed how he fell out with his dad over his passion for music.

"I want to do something with my life, I want to become a singer," he explained before his audition. "I went to college, but my dad changed my course from music to business.

"I was raging. We fell out massively. I really, really love my dad, but I'm here to prove him wrong."

After performing One Direction hit Little Things, Simon was quick to get one of his talent show cliches out of the cupboard, telling the teen: "I didn't really like it, I absolutely loved it."

Mum of two [tag]Francine Lewis[/tag] was up next, and her impressionist act is possibly the best the show has seen.

Francine's takes on Stacey Solomon, Katie Price, Holly Willoughby and Cheryl Cole had the audience and judges laughing, and the already semi-famous telly star through to the next round.

MC Boy was the final act on tonight's auditions and posed triple threat: He rapped, sung and danced.

He revealed that his performance would be his own song called I Need You Tonight, written about a time when he was lonely in a club.

[tag]MC Boy[/tag] told the judges on stage: "Before I applied I had a dream, I saw a the judges, and you [Simon] pressed the buzzer twice."

And that dream turned out to be pretty accurate, but fortunately for MC Boy, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden - and the audience - all loved it, and we was through to the next round.
