Britain's Got Talent Mobile App

Britain’s Got Talent has become a phenomenon with Saturday night television audiences. Although I’ve only watched a couple of episodes (I like the doggie auditions) it’s a fantastic show which boasts huge variety and the winner’s prize is pretty spectacular too – a performance in front of The Queen at The Royal Variety Show.

Now fans of Britain’s Got Talent can join in the fun by playing along at home via their smartphones. The Britain’s Got Talent mobile app (available on iPhones) provides users with their own red buzzer which allows them to buzz during the show just like judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.

The app also hooks up with Facebook so you can see which contestants your family and friends do and don’t like. All in all a great free application which will adds a new dimension to Britain’s Got Talent- follow this link to download.

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.

Britain’s Got Talent Semi-Final- Steven Hall

Britain’s Got Talent has run into controversy this morning with an alleged ‘fix’ vote. I really hope that this doesn’t take away from the fantastic performance by Steven Hall on last night’s show.

Steven, a Tele-communications engineer from Kendal transformed into a dancing comic genius at the semi-final show. His humorous dance routine incorporated different styles of dance with everything from Greek, Bombay Bollywood, Tango and even Cheerleading.

I was really impressed with Steven’s dance moves and how entertaining the act was- funny, energetic and totally unexpected. Brilliant!
