    Default Britain's Got Talent - 2019 Final

    Does anyone watch this any more?

    I haven't seen any of this year's shows, but have the final on in the background.

    I find what little interest I had in this sort of thing a decade ago has all but evaporated.

    Seen bits of it. The usual automatic four yeses for a sob story, feeding the delusions of twelve year olds who think they can dance, and planted professionals pretending to be newcomers like Peter Kay's mate Barbara Nice.
    I did actually laugh out loud at a stand up comic, which is rare for me, I generally loath stand up. Youngish bloke talking about his strict African upbringing: Points at his face and says "I'm actually mixed race... this is a bruise".

    The winner will be the singing Chelsea pensioner because awwww isn't he lovely.

    Saw him on YouTube, very funny.

    I don't have UK TV here, it's cheap enough to get, I just haven't bothered. I haven't bothered to even plug an aerial into my TV, it's just permanently linked to my laptop. So for things like BGT, I just watch the clips that look ineteresting on YouTube. Means I can skip through the silly sob stories.

    Amanda Holden makes this show unwatchable.

    I was shocked.
    But were you surprised? It stopped being a talent show from the very first winner. Paul Potts won because he was better than people expected him to be based on his looks, but he wasn't the most talented person in the contest. It's been that way ever since. When you accept that it's not a talent contest but a popularity contest it makes boring, predictable sense. The old soldier won because everyone loves him, not his singing. People with film star looks who can do extraordinary things beyond the abilities of Joe Public Esq. are never going to win that kind of show.
