Britain's Got Talent - Cardiff and Manchester Auditions

Welcome to Britain’s Got Talent. The show that sets out to find Britain’s bightest new act and change their life forever. Ant & Dec are our hosts. It was going to be Paul O’Grady but he’s left ITV for Channel 4. Every night for the next 9 nights we’ll bring you all the action from the 50,000 applicants. They’ll all be competing for the incredible prize of an appearance at this year’s royal variety performance in front of Her Majesty, The Queen.

Cardiff folk have turned up in their thousands and there is every type of act imaginable. From dancing children to singing dogs. The one difference with these auditions is that they’re taking place in front of a live audience.

The three Britain’s Got Talent judges are Mr Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan. During the auditions, the judges have a red button each. If one of the judges hits their button then a red cross will light up. If a contestant gets three red crosses then their time is up and their audition is over and it’s time for the judges to decide on whether they will be going through to the next round.

27 year old Damon Scott says he’s unique and no one can do what he does. He has a monkey that sings Michael Jackson. He’s kind of like a ventriliquist, only better. He brings the house down and gets a standing ovation. The crowd loves him. The judges love him. It was super entertaining. He’s through to the next round.

Katie with Rupert the piano playing pig are up next. It’s a bit of a laugh when Simon, who is obviously not impressed, hits his button and scares the pig. It’s not very tuneful when he gets to play the piano but it does prove that he’s a smart animal. Afterwards, Piers says that Simon likes to be the only smart pig in the room.

South Wales Cellphone salesman Paul is here to fulfil his dream of singing opera. He’s very good. Simon didn’t seem interested at the start but once he opened his mouth to sing he was drawn in. The crowd goes beserk. Simon says he wasn’t expecting it at all and thought he was fantastic. He’s through to the next round.

Manchester is the next stop for this travelling circus. Simon is annoyed that there is no talent in Manchester. He’s so annoyed he’s thinking he should pack his bags and head back to America. That is before the 27 piece dance troupe MD Productions walks in. Their members are aged between 13 and 24 and all they want to do is dance. Once again the audience goes crazy. The judges love it and think it was sensational.

10 year old Jake Pratt is a budding comedian. He’s a funny wee chap. Simon thought the comedy routine was great but the singing was rubbish.

Unlike other contestants 17 year old Craig Mansley has been trying to keep his talent a secret as his parents thought it was only something girls do. He’s a baton twirler. They like him and think he’s fantastic and think his parents would have been extremely proud of them.

    i think there were loads of people that auditioned with real talent but they got cast aside to make way for connie talbot and paul potts i mean come on to be fair paul deserved it but why all the kick up about connie plenty of kids can sing like that if not better and to be honest she sounded like a drowning cat lol

    I was recently at the Cradiff auditions for the both shows.
    I have to say how FANTASTIC the singing Nunn was. Nichola did a STUNNING performance of I will follow him and even manged to turn a “vile, cruel” audience in to an audience of fun and energy, She was SUPERB. Regardless of what the judges thought, she certainly had the crowd going and I hope to god she makes it through to the live shows. She’s def got my vote! Go Nic. x

  • ultrasound

    Me and my friend auditioned in Birmingham yesterday. We sung run and the producer was lovely. He liked our reason for being there… we both come from council estates in Derby and we love singing. We auditioned cause we think that if you have a dream then go out there and chase it no matter what your social class or the up bringing you have had! We wana show the real youngsters of Britain that living on a council estate isn’t just about fitting in and keeping up a reputation to stay safe and that anyone can achieve a dream if they want it so bad we we really do.

    We messed up the words a bit in our song! and we didnt get asked to do a second song or to go for an interview. But the producer seemed to like us and respected us for having the balls to audition so will see what happens. Gota wait ages now… good luck to everyone and if we get through vote ultrasound 2010!!! 😉 love to you all! Chase those dreams and reach for the stars! Abbie in Derby!! whoop whoop!

  • joe forshaw to win 2010

    hope your guna see joe forshaw in 2010 hes only 6 great little dancer,they filmed him doing his dance to jls in front of 150 people at manchester he did very well go joe go,good luck to you all

  • My son auditioned and then had to sing again downstairs in the holding room, we was a little overwhelmed, but fingers crossed. He sung a Mary Popppins number!!!

  • Anonymous4404

    When the judges ask for a 2nd song it usually means they werent so sure and wanted to hear what else she can do.
    if your daughter is pretty that could ahve been why she was interviewd. they tend to interview attractive people, or people who do something different/ original or look wierd.
    you cant tell if she got through from that sorry. you just have to wait till you hear back from ITV.
    i am also waiting to hear from them!

  • Jess loves JLS n Joe Forshaw!

    If you don’t hear back by the middle of january she didn’t get threw
