Eight Britain’s Got Talent acts took to the stage for the fourth semi-final on Thursday as they battled it out for two spaces in the Grand Final. Dame Nation, The Frontline Singers and The Phantom were just a handful of the acts that performed for Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.
However, some ITV viewers weren’t impressed with the latest group of semi-finalists.
@johngou16364081 tweeted: “Britains got woke is getting worse, it’s just one sob story after another. #BGT.”
@janeinglefield added: “Is there anyone in the semis without a sob story?? #BGT.”
@AlexAshmore952m remarked: “Like many others have said, not much talent anymore just sob story and having a message. Think it needs to finish now #BGT.”
“Again a distinct lack of talent. Perhaps just change it to;’ Britain’s Got Sob Stories’ Very few of these people would be on this stage if it was a real talent show,” @hashtagMullins9m vented. (sic)
On Wednesday, Tom Ball and Eva Abley earned their places in the Grand Final.
Tom sailed through with the public vote after receiving a standing ovation from the judges and audience.
He performed Conchita Wurst’s Rise Like A Phoenix.
David commented: “I thought at one moment you might just take off and zoom into space with the power of your voice.
“This is the best story ever, you are fantastic.”
They joined Flintz & T4ylor, Ben Nickless, Jamie Leahey and Maxwell Thorpe.
