Missed Britain's Got Talent 2013 this weekend? Here's our run down of the good, the bad and the rollerblading dinner lady you couldn't stop...

Tonight's show was in London and the try outs were taking place at the London Palladium for the first time in the show's history.

Judge David Walliams remarked at the top of the show: "I hope we see some real variety acts because they’ll really look great on a stage like this.”

And this evening's episode was certainly packed with variety, starting with 52-year-old impressionist Steven Jackson, but an unimpressed David told him: “It was uncanny how unlike all those people you were.”

Skating dinner lady Linda didn't fare any better in front of the panel, and refused to stop after getting buzzed off by the panel.

11-year-old Asanda Jezile turned it around with the first yes of the show, singing Rihanna hit Diamonds, although it made is us feel slightly uncomfortable when Simon compared the youngster's stage presence to that of the risque star.

Asanda's amount of talent for a 11-year-old however quickly became apparent as the next act took to the stage, Diamond and the Ruff. The duo were made up of married Marcus and Lisa are married: Marcus is 32 and works as a driver, and Lis is 24 and works in admin.

Their self-penned song didn't go down too well with the panel however, as Simon told the couple: “I think you’ve got this completely wrong. Maybe at a push a holiday camp.”


Fortunately getting the auditions back on track were a band in the form of Luminites – Jordan Clarke- 18, Ben Francis – 19, Stephanie Edwards – 18 and Corey Layzell – 21 from London.

It' was great to see a mixed sex group and the unusual foursome included everything from vocalists to guitar players and beatboxers, but will it be enough to get through to the next round?

Amanda gushed: "Lumities, it was amazing. It feels unique and the harmonies, perfect. It was absolutely a brilliant, brilliant audition."

After the break and we met Mother and Son, made up of Shirley and James (hopefully we don't need to tell you which is which).

“Shall we just put them straight through or do you want to do the comments?” asks David, but his fellow judges weren't as enthusiastic, with Simon slating: "It truthfully bought tears to my eyes but for all the wrong reasons. Let me kick this off with a no.”

The Duelling Pianos – Rob and Craig - are musicians from Leeds and were next to share their bizarre talent with the panel: Competitive piano playing.

Yes, there's such a thing.

Unfortunately for the duo, Simon's not a fan of it, saying: "You hit bum notes and then it ended with this ghastly trumpet solo.”

Amanda Holden also buzzed, but admitted after the full audition: "I would like to say that I’ve been a little bit premature and I like to withdraw my buzzer. It was very entertaining, it was funny. You had everybody on their feet at the end.”

With three yeses, the pair made it through, but can they win Simon over in the next round?


Hoping to break the bad luck that magicians seem to suffer on BGT was Aaron Crow, a 44 year old ‘mentalist’ from Belgium.

After ignoring the judges, a producer told the panel: “He’s not speaking because his act is very dangerous and he has to be in a certain mental zone beforehand.”

In a mesmerising act, Aaron went on to get co-host Ant and members of the audience on stage before blindfolding himself and whipping out a sword. A tense audition saw the judges wincing as Aarron swings around his weapon in a bid to knock objects out of the volunteers' hands, and cut a pineapple off the top of Ant's head.

A string of dreary singer-songwriters performers followed, with Simon ranting: “I’ve literally banned anyone else turning up with a guitar. I can’t listen to anymore. It’s too depressing.”

Hoping to turn things around for the depressing guitar playing wannabes was 22-year-old Robbie Kennedy, a bricklayer from South Wales.

But a fed up Simon didn't like his first performance, leaving Robbie on the back foot as he went on to sing Goo Goo Dolls' hit Iris.

It proved a hit and with four yeses, Robbie was told by Simon: "I’ve got to be honest with you, I wasn’t expecting that. Do you know what Robbie, I think that if you put that record out you would have a number one hit with that song. Loved it.”
