Britain Got Talent 2008

19 03 2009

Britain’s Got Talent 2008 had one amazing 13-year-old contestant, Andrew Johnston

Jo was touched by his performances, see Andrew’s audition (singing Pie Jesu) and Semi-final (singing Tears In Heaven)

Also sharing here is the amazing dance “Singing in the Rain”.. as in dancing in the ‘rain’ by  George Sampston. He performed this dancing routine in semi-final and final.

Britain’s Got Talent is a British television show on ITV (also on TV3 in Ireland). Presented by Ant & Dec, the talent show premiered on 9 June 2007, and was broadcast daily with a live final on 17 June 2007. It is a search for Britain’s next best amateur talent act, featuring singers, dancers, comedians, variety acts, and other talents of all ages. Anyone who believed they have talent was encouraged to audition. The winner of the show received £100,000 and performed at the Royal Variety Performance in front of the Queen and members of the Royal Family at the Empire Theatre in Liverpool.

As Britain’s Got Talent returns for its second series, hosts Ant & Dec and judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan once again begin their search for Britain’s most talented performer. The second series began on a primetime slot at 19:45 on 12 April and for the remainder of the auditions will continue in this Saturday night slot. Once the semi-finals begin they will be shown daily, like in series one, over one week 26 May – 30 May with the live final on Saturday 31 May 2008.

The winner of Britain Got Talent 2008 was George Sampson with his Singing In The Rain dancing routine. George also participated in Britain Got Talent 2007 audition. Though he didn’t make it to final, he never give up, and this time round, he was crowned the champion. Received grand prize and also performed at the Royal Variety Performance in front of the Queen and members of the Royal Family. See his 2007 audition here and 2008 audition here.

Andrew Johnston came in 3rd place.
