During the 2013 BGT final Simon Cowell got quite the surprise when a girl barged onto stage to pelt eggs at him. Making a joke of the incident tonight, Cowell laughed that he thought it was happening all over again, but much worse, when a member of Entity Allstars dance troupe ran at him with a spear. Not sure that would come under the banner of family-friendly entertainment. Luckily it was all part of their Gladiator-themed performance and no Cowells were hurt in the making of this programme.
Isaac Waddington’s honesty
Fifteen-year-old Isaac Waddington took to the stage to sing once again – you could have heard a pin drop as he sang – but it was his honest thoughts on the performance that stood out. When asked by Ant and Dec how he’d been feeling about the final he simply replied: “I was bricking it.” Fair enough.
Magician Jamie Raven stunned the judges once again tonight with close-up magic that saw him hide a note with Alesha’s signature on it inside a fresh lemon. “Shut the front door,” Alesha could be heard saying as Jamie unveiled his trick. But it was David Walliams who said what I think most of us were thinking: “There’s nothing I like more than trying to catch out a magician – I’m that kind of person – but I couldn’t see how you did that at all”. It was certainly a head-scratcher. “You must be a wizard. Magic must be real,” Cowell concurred.
On the app there was a little bit of a mix-up
People found that Jesse-Jane McParland looked a little different on the voting app, but it was all sorted by the time the voting lines opened.
