Amanda BGT Launch Last night’s opening episode provided everything Britain’s Got Talent is renowned for – tears, tantrums, and plenty of laughter.

Here, we reveal our favourite acts… and we’re sure there’s plenty more to come!


Jack Carroll

The teenage comic had the judges and audience in fits of giggles with his no nonsense stand up routine. Making jokes about his disability, cerebal palsy sufferer Jack, 14, was labeled a ‘genius’ by David. High praise indeed.

Patrick George

Patrick and his choir were the perfect opening act. Their surprise entrance was only topped by their flawless vocals. Simon told them they were the best choir he’d ever had on the show, and we think he may be right.

Arisxandra Libantino

The adorable singer is only 11, but her powerful voice stunned the judges. All four agreed they were watching a ‘Susan Boyle’ moment, as tiny Arisxandra burst into song. Alesha’s face when Aris hit those big notes was a sight to behold.

Attraction Black Light Shadow Theatre

We’ve never seen anything quite like this. The dancers from Hungary made such an impact, that Amanda couldn’t get through her critique without crying.  Performing their haunting (true) story about love and loss, the group got a unanimous ‘yes’ from the judging panel– and rightly so.

 Alice Fredenham

The terrified beauty therapist, who was so nervous she didn’t tell a soul she was auditioning, won over all the judges with a flawless rendition of ‘My Funny Valentine.’  Simon Cowell told her she could sing the phonebook and described her voice as liquid gold. Even better, presenter Dec obviously fancied her. Lucky girl!
