    My family are obsessed with it.

    I think it's endless utter crap.

    Wouldn't be so bad if the newspapers weren't full of it too. Some hob-faced woman singing isn't what I'd call front page news.

    And Big Brother is back soon too. No wonder the world is full of brain deads.

    Such a pile of shit. It says a lot about the level of talent normally found on the show that a woman who can actually sing becomes national news. "Holy shit! We found someone with actual talent! WTF?"

    Actually, I don't have to even waste time directing bile at this crap. Watch as Charlie Brooker does it for me.
    Charlie Brooker's already done it.

    The refreshing wisdom of Charlie Brooker. Now there's someone that truly does bring hope for Humanity.

    Thing is, it's supposed to be a variety show but from what I can see everyone goes ga-ga over the singing (and occasionally some bit of dancing) and the rest is seen as novelty to generally be ignored. They should just be honest and call it 'Britain's Got Singers'. That or 'Britain's Got No Decent Entertainment'.

    I did say 'and occasionally some bit of dancing'.

    Personally I reckon the show would be a bit better if singers were banned from it. There's more than enough singing on television and in these kinds of shows as it is.
    Not that I'd probably watch it like that either.

    Then again I suppose the singing is always touted more because more cash can be made from it what with possible later albums and stuff. Some guy juggling a dog on fire isn't really going to have staying power in an entertainment industry. And singing is generally the most accessible act. You can tell right away if someone can sing or not, and it doesn't need props, a large performance space or even for people to be able to see the person (Hmm... 'Britain's Got Talent' as a radio show?). Even something like stand up comedy which is another big form of live entertainment can be so variable in quality, even with the same person or within the same performance, as they can croak on stage or the audience may not find them funny.

    You know what I really object to? The judges. Ok, so Cowell has made a fortune marketing pop shit, so I can kinda see the argument for him being there. But Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan? WTF have they ever done to allow them to judge the talent of others? Holden's a complete failure at everything she's ever tried, and Morgan's lucky to not be in jail. I'd find it pretty difficult to accept their criticism of anything I did.

    There should be real veterans of the entertainment industry as judges that have wider and more involved knowledge. People that know the quailty and can give good advice or better informed opinions.

    Still, I'm only posting as someone that endures the show only when swiftly passing through the sitting room to the kitchen and it's on the telly while my family start at it engrossed and glassy-eyed.

    Piers Morgan is one of the most successful newspaper editors of his time and given the rags he edited he's right at home there.

    Holden can go suck an egg, however. :3

    Morgan was successful as an editor? He left the News of the Screws under a cloud, and was fired from the Sunday Mirror. I'd hate to see what the unsuccessful editors are like.

    Well both papers had a good run under his tenure, even if only for a while. Considering as he graduated from editing the two page shitwipe Bizarre in the Sun, that's not bad going at all.

    Anyway, I think it's right that some genuine judges who know what the fuck they are talking about are required outside of Cowell. Cannon and Ball, Little and Large, the Krankees, who the fuck ever. The personality black hole Morgan and Holden needs to be plugged.

    Also; Kelly Brooke? :lol

    What about the Chuckle brothers? On the basis that they look no different now then what they did when I was a kid, I assume that they must be immortal and have seen every form of light entertainment since the dawn of civilisation.

    Ah yes, dear Kelly Brook. A woman who's made a career out of being quite attractive on the Big Breakfast. Dear god, what has gone wrong with television? In my youth, we watched manly men blowing stuff up, driving fast and piloting high tech vehicles. Now we watch Big Brother and Susan Boyle. :(

    He's a massively gullible twat too. I remember Chris Morris convincing him on the phone that he was U2's manager. And that they were going to do a track with Public Enemy, called "One Less Bitch". It was beautiful.
