Was Britain's Got Talent rigged?

Did anyone else notice that the last person that performed won the round?

Firstly, every semi-final winner was the last person to perform.

Secondly, the order of the Grand Finale was by the winner and runner up of the Semi’s except for Paul who was moved to the last place and ended up winning.

Smells fishy to me.

    It won’t be rigged as they pick the semi-final winners way before the show airs (my housemates auditioned and found out early on in the year that they weren’t through).

    I’m SO glad to see I’m not the only person to see this show for the sham it is…

    What amazes me is that Ant & Dec are involved. The people behind this show are using their good names to add credibilty to a the show and I hope they realise this now.

    For those who still believe that this show is genuine – think of this –

    1) If a percentage of the calls goes to charity – why in the world would they want to RESRICT the time that votes can be cast????

    2) Surely in 10 minutes there couldn’t be a clear leader in the voting… So by restricting it to 10 minutes, they would be RANDOMIZING who wins…

    3) WHY is the final act EVERY night the one to win the ‘public’ vote?

    4) Simon, Amanda and Piers are PRODUCERS of the show. They carry a LOT more clout than people think.

    5) Simon has actually arranged for his favorite act, Farrel, to receive free vocal training – this in itself shows favoritism and and is a way of rigging the results…

    6) Farells rival on the show, George Sampson, has not been able to rehearse for the final, as the organisers are ‘having trouble putting his music track together’…

    Co-incidences??

    Pleeeeeaaase…..

    notice in the final that the lad who sang imagine said that he didnt want to sing it and that it was out of his hands…..makes me wonder whether this show is rigged. the song wasnt his style and so it gave him a disadvantage.

    Well, I think its rigged, for these reasons..

    As the person above/below has said..
    1) If a percentage of the calls goes to charity – why in the world would they want to RESRICT the time that votes can be cast????

    2) Surely in 10 minutes there couldn’t be a clear leader in the voting… So by restricting it to 10 minutes, they would be RANDOMIZING who wins…

    They are good reasons..
    Also!
    All the BIG dance groups went first.. I reckon because the last groups are the ones that stick in the memory last.. which have all been through, so the first groups you forget about because they weren’t as good.
    But if it was down to talent, tbh.. the acts would still go through, but they help them along a bit by putting them last..
    So? IDK!?

    to the last post if the show is not rigged then how can you say that the votes are already know about the semi final winners even before the public vote. To me its says the opposite, that is rigged if the winner has been chosen before the show has gone on air and the public casts their votes.

    what about the acts forces to change their acts in the middle of the show? that is wrong and suggests putting them at a disadavantage.

    To be honest it don’t really matter if the show is rigged or not, it is a very entertaining programme, my only comment on this is let people see the full act during the auditions and stop the stupid comments from Ant and Dec during it, the judges say yes or no but as it proves in this series, the audience have the last word, rigged or not makes no difference, Farrell will see fame and so will all the other acts one way or another, to appear on Britains got talent or even the x factor is enough to get you to where you want to go if you are good enough, the end outcome of either show the public are the stars and not the judges, they are there to help not hinder talent.

    oh my god,
    1) If a percentage of the calls goes to charity – why in the world would they want to RESRICT the time that votes can be cast????-BECAUSE YOU CAN’T JUST VOTE FOR EVER YOU MUG, WHY WOULD THIS MAKE IT RIGGED

    2) Surely in 10 minutes there couldn’t be a clear leader in the voting… So by restricting it to 10 minutes, they would be RANDOMIZING who wins… -BECAUSE THAT IS ALL THEY HAVE TIME FOR IN THE SHOW AND IT DOESNT RANDOMIZE IT AT ALL

    3) WHY is the final act EVERY night the one to win the ‘public’ vote?- THEY PUT THE MOST PROMISING ACTS AT THE END OR THEY ARE FRESHER IN PEOPLES MINDS

    4) Simon, Amanda and Piers are PRODUCERS of the show. They carry a LOT more clout than people think.-DOESN’T MEAN IT’S RIGGED

    5) Simon has actually arranged for his favorite act, Farrel, to receive free vocal training – this in itself shows favoritism and and is a way of rigging the results…-NOT SURE THAT IS TRUE

    6) Farells rival on the show, George Sampson, has not been able to rehearse for the final, as the organisers are ‘having trouble putting his music track together’…-MAYBE THAT’S BECAUSE THEY WERE ‘HAVING TROUBLE PUTTING HIS MUSIC TRACK TOGETHER’ ANYWAY HE WON SO THAT ISN’T TRUE EITHER
