Britain’s Got Talent 2019
Britain’s Got Talent is over already! The nation's attention was on their television screens this week to learn who would be this year’s winner. Audiences were not left disappointed by the 11 acts that took to the stage. It was a roller coaster of a final with a mixed bag of acts. But as we know, there could be only one winner.
After weeks of tough auditions, the field narrowed down to the remaining acts that made to the final. Let’s take a quick look at some of the most successful acts and how they got on in the final. The final offered a variety of acts including magicians, singers, a choir and much more trying. It also included performances by Susan Boyle, Michael Ball and dance act Diversity.
We got the feeling that this one was going to be too close to call. This year’s line-up was packed with superb acts! This was going to make it difficult for the public to select the most talented act.
Going into any final as the favourite can be quite daunting. But not for singer Colin Thackeray, who started the final as one of the favourites. The 80-year-old army veteran from Norfolk has taken Britain’s Got Talent by storm! He showed no sign of slowing down. We all knew that Colin had stolen the nation’s hearts, but nobody was ready for what was going to happen next…
Colin took to the stage to give a heart-warming version of Vera Lynn’s song “We’ll Meet Again”. The audiences were charmed, as they voted for him in droves. This made Colin the winner of Britain’s got talent. His prize included a whooping £250,000! Plus the chance to preform for the Royal Family at the Royal Variety Performance in November.
The mysterious magician X finished second to Colin Thackeray. Throughout the competition, not much was known about this performer... Everyone was dumbfounded by his tricks and the mystery surrounding him. X kept his identity a secret from the audience and the viewers at home only adding to his mystic. Judge Amanda Holden described X as an “Absolute Master of your craft”. There was a massive twist at the end of his act. In what must have been the revelation of the show, X revealed his identity to the judges and the audience! Turns out, he was former semi finalist Marc Spelmann. He explained the reasoning behind entering this year’s show using identity as “It was always about hope and never giving up…”.
So, there you have it for this years Britain’s Got Talent. Let's hope that next year’s competition comes with more of these thrills and spills.
