Britain’s Got Talent returned to our screens tonight with the season’s first set of auditions. From a jaw-dropping contortionist to a daring dance troupe from Mumbai, tonight’s episode had us on the edge of our seats from start to finish. We’re not kidding. Here’s tonight’s recap on our favorite auditions from the debut episode.
‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Auditions
If you were rooting for V. Unbeatable on America’s Got Talent last year, X1X Crew is the act for you. Combining dangerously high jumps with synchronized dance moves, this Mumbai dance crew knows how to keep your attention. The group says they hope to win the show and use the winner’s money for education reform in India. Way to go!
Here’s a challenge. Try to watch Papi Flex with your eyes fully open. We tried and it’s impossible! This contortionist, that was first discovered on Spain’s Got Talent, has reached new heights on BGT with his daring act. Papi is able to twist his body into nearly any position possible making for quite a tormenting watch.
James and Dylan Piper
Meet James and Dylan Piper, the father-son duo we never knew we needed. This family magic act had us screaming WTF all the way through. Using the power of a deck of cards, the two were able to predict all of Simon Cowell’s best-kept secrets. Hundreds of fans across Twitter are already doubting the act however, claiming the son gave it all away with a mishap on stage.
Sign Along With Us Choir
Sign Along With Us may just be the most joyous Golden Buzzer we’ve EVER witnessed on BGT. This choir, using sign language, performed the world-famous anthem, ‘This Is Me’ with enough spirit to remind us that there are beautiful qualities in everyone, no matter the circumstances. David Walliams pushed the Golden Buzzer for the group, which of course, had us all in tears by the time they left the stage.
Shy 10-year-old Yakub was the star of the show tonight, performing what we can only call a sensational dance act. Based on the Lion King, the dancer proved his potential to the entire country and indeed himself with a beautifully crafted routine. Whilst the youngster was a little uncertain as to whether he could win the show at the first, we believe he has every chance.
Britain’s Got Talent returns next Saturday on ITV at 8pm.
