C’mon Simon Cowell! You should know that lightning rarely strikes twice! The Susan Boyle deal was a fluke that will likely never be duplicated, and your lame attempts to recreate the “magic” are so transparent at this point, it’s kinda funny.
For instance, when Simon says, at the very top of this video, “Just When you think things could not get any worse,” I immediately thought to myself. “Suebo meme dead ahead!” and when the chubby and ungainly Jonathan took the stage with his school mate Charlotte to sing an operatic duet on Saturday’s Britain’s Got Talent, I was sure I was right. And I was.
The duo have nice voices–especially Jonathan–no diss on the youngsters at all. But this is the reason long-time viewers of a competition reality show get frustrated with the audition process–it’s the endless repeating of the Same. Old. Thing.
Simon is back this season as judge, presumably to goose the ratings. BGT overlaps with The Voice UK for about 20 minutes, and lost. Oh well.
I won’t be covering either show live, but if there are any buzzworthy performances, I’ll post them here. Both shows air on Saturdays on their respective stations.
