The new series of Britain’s Got Talent aired on Saturday evening seeing the return of Simon Cowell and welcoming brand new judges Alesha Dixon, formerly of Strictly Come Dancing and comedian David Walliams. All of whom were joined by actress and established BGT judge Amanda Holden.

This year’s series faces stiff competition from a new BBC talent show called The Voice, a singing contest which focuses directly on the contestants’ voice rather than the way they look or their background.

Britain's Got Talent judges 2012

I managed to catch a little of both programs over the weekend and although I enjoyed The Voice- I think it’s great that the legendary Tom Jones is a mentor on the show- I have to admit that I do enjoy the variety which Britain’s Got Talent has to offer.

The audition which really stood out to me and has been featured heavily in the press since Saturday’s show was by opera duo Charlotte and Jonathan. The teenagers were greeted with some hesitation from the judges at first but once they started to sing everyone was utterly mesmerised. Jonathon has even been hailed as the “new Susan Boyle” which is high praise indeed. Watch their audition in the video below…

I’d be really interested to hear about which show you preferred over the weekend the BBC’s new programme The Voice or ITV’s old favourite Britain’s Got Talent. Leave a comment below to let me know.
