Britain does have talent but it’s not Susan Boyle

susan-boyleWhat a huge relief, Susan Boyle didn’t win Britains Got Talent! Last Thursdays show proved that the great British public finally came to their senses and realised that Susan Boyle is nothing more than an average singer who had only got to the finals because Simon Cowell, the judges and the rest of the UK had sniggered when she first walked on the stage, and we then all felt sorry for her. But let’s not forget the show is about talent, not sympathy and although Ms Boyle clearly does have some talent, she really did not derserve her place in the final.

Piers Morgan said she is a global superstar. She is not, she is nothing more than an average woman with a great sob story while a superstar is someone like Shirley Bassey, Frank Sinatra or Madonna.

On the other hand, dance troupe Diversity who beat Susan Boyle into second place to win the worlds biggest talent show, thoroughly deserved their victory.
The ten-strong dance troupe from Essex and London worked incredibly hard throughout the competition and continually amazed and impressed at every stage. Their routines were original and flawless, but more importantly TALENTED!

Diversity’s choreographer Ashley Banjo was blown away by the result, told Ant and Dec, “When you said our name I thought I was dreaming. Everyone who has voted – you have changed our lives”.
The group have only been together since 2007 but with members aged 12-25 they blew the judges away with their incomparable ‘transformer’ dance routine.
Earlier this evening, Simon told them, “This is the only performance of the night, if we were giving marks, I would have given a ten. It was sheer and utter perfection.”

The group claimed the first prize cheque of £100,000 and will now go on to perform at the Royal Variety Show in front of the Queen. Well done lads, thoroughly deserved.
