Watch the Fight Between the ‘BGT’ Judges that Makes Them Storm Off Stage
The judges on Britain’s Got Talent don’t always agree about whether an act deserves to make it through to the next round. In fact, sometimes they’re in such disagreement that they get into an argument about it.
In 2013, one such argument prompted BGT judges Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden to walk off set. Check out the performance that inspired the tension below, and read on to find out what the judges said.
‘BGT’ Judges Fight About Pop’arazzi Crew
The act that had the BGT judges so worked up was the Pop’arazzi Crew, a dance group who showed off some unique moves. As they performed, judges David Walliams and Simon Cowell looked confused and unimpressed.
“Well, it was a bit weird, wasn’t it?” David asked when the audition was over. “It didn’t hugely excite me.” Meanwhile, Amanda said she thought it was “totally fascinating to watch.”
Simon said, “I was kind of interested for about a minute, but then I lost it.” However, Alesha said she thought it was “interesting.” Simon responded to her words with snoring sounds, which set Amanda off.
“Do you know what, Simon?” Amanda said. “In mine and Alesha’s opinion, this is unique, it’s intelligent, it’s imaginative. We’ve never seen anything like it. And I don’t know why you’re snoring.”
Amanda, Alesha Storm Off Set Together
Check out the whole confrontation at 28:35 in the video above. When David voted no, Amanda and Alesha objected, with Amanda calling it “such a mistake.” When Simon voted no, Alesha called it “unbelievable.”
“I think we’ve had enough of the boys,” Amanda said.
Simon replied, “Maybe we’ve just reached that point where we’ve had enough of each other.”
The women responded by getting up and walking away from the BGT judges’ table with their arms around each other. Backstage, Amanda said she was “so angry.” Alesha, meanwhile, told David to “grow some balls” instead of just agreeing with Simon.
Back at the table, Simon told David that it’s a “problem” when the female judges “actually sort of like each other,” adding, “It doesn’t work.” We know how much Simon likes to meow when women don’t agree with each other, so we’re not exactly surprised.
