    I had a lot of fun following this last year. This year looks to be just as promising.

    yeah me too.. for some reason I always find the British more talented in this show than America's got talent which usually seems really cheezy.. but will have to see this years..

    Wow. Just wow. Loved Simon's open-mouthed expression!

    Nan, I actually prefer Olivia's voice to young Chloe's.

    I did, too. Chloe's voice was very good, but Olivia was

    So far, Olivia, Spellbound and Christopher Stone have been my favorites. I can't figure out just what Simon's problem is with Christopher. Yes, he was nervous, but you couldn't hear it in his voice.

    Now, everyone has to watch this video of "flute magic" which features one of the most talented flutists I have ever heard. I wonder why she doesn't play with one of the bg pro orchestras yet

    I watched it, but she is no Chris Wood or Jethro Tull.

    I was being sarcastic lol. I am a professional flutist so I definitely know flute talent when I hear it and she is definitely NOT good at flute in any way, shape or form

    Me too. I didn't really like Chloe's voice at all. I found her pacing boring & I thought her voice isn't really mature enough yet. I do think she has a future but Olivia is ready now. Her voice is beautiful.

    Am watching first live semi and so wish I wasn't.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Ive watched the last 3 nights, I hadnt really seen any of the audition shows. It's mainly so crap.

    Chloe didnt make it to the finals and cried.

    There's a singer called Emile who was on last night and was so out of tune it was

    But he's 18 and is a father .. ugh so he has *responsibilities*... Er, try and be a bit more responsible and use contraception next time!

    81 year old Janey won last night, now Im respectful of old people and went a bit 'aww' but then again, she isnt very good.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GauZwHwBKQ


    These were my favourites last night and they went through to the final in second place ..

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RDiBxbT_CA



    Other acts, I thought these were a little wuzrobbed and should have gone through as well (No Janey)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UI0wKWfehNA

    And lol at the slating this lot got...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJ6nLkHFP8w


    How the hell is this on primetime TV??!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxUll...aynext_from=SL


    Oh and the winner from the other night, gotta love the acts! Wheee!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZNtiqK2wPM




    Overall, it's a pretty crap year though, it's all very well being 'wowed' by the auditions but get most of these acts on a proper stage and it all goes a bit pear shaped non?

    I dont watch the auditions nor X Factor anymore, Im tired of Simon Cowell treating the audience like idiots.

    I think Spellbound and Tina and Chandi are the only acts worth watching. Although watching Spellbound makes me feel like a dirty old man.

    Yeah, there's no way they are going to be able to top the look on Simon's face when Susan Boyle lost last year.

    There are too many dance groups this year, none of them really stand out to me except the duo, Twist and Shout. Spellbound is amazing and the dancing dog is just plain fun to watch.
