Britain’s Got Mad Talent!

I’m not a major fan of this show, I have more of a love affair with X-Factor and American Idol as they do identify some real talent whereas I’m not really into watchin people pull a car with a rope tied to their ears (in Britain’s Got Talent episode 1).

However, the talent shown by the infamous dance group FLAWLESS on the first episode made me shun my ignorance and pay attention to what Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan were judging.

I heard about this next young man Shaheen Jafargholi but I can honestly say I was quite lost for superlatives, from the minute he started I was like ‘yeah, he’s got talent.’ It’s a good look that average people from all walks of life have such an opportunity in this day and age.


Ju’Not (U Know) I’m backing him.. American Idol!!

I’ve been watching this season of American Idol, I haven’t really payed much attention in the past but I find it interesting to see that Mr Cowell still holds the same prescence across the border as he does here, the show indirectly reveolves around him. Anyhow, some of the artists I liked from previous rounds, namely Stephen (the black guy with the dodgy hair) have failed to live up to expectation or their song choice has been ridiculous.

Ju’Not (pronounced Yu’Know) performed yesterday and was the first artist i’ve seen this season that took something out of the box and done something good with it, performing Hey There Delila.

So, i’m backing him to win, however my TIP to win is Lil Rounds, a very strong female vocalist, imagine a hint of Fantasia, a sprinkle of Jennifer Hudson with a Mary J. Blige topping,  although she does have her own style mixed in with that.. See her performance for yourself. I didn’t think it was that great like the judges did but she ended VERY strongly, and demonstrated that there is much more in the locker.
