Britain’s Got Talent 2014 will see everything from dancing owls to a motorcycle stunt group.
In what’s set to be the most varied set of audition yet, Simon Cowell has revealed just a taste of what we can expect from the new series when it launches at the weekend.
And it sounds like we’re in for quite the treat.
“We have found these incredible motorbike stunt riders, who are amazing; I’m amazed that half of them didn’t get killed. Love them. They’re like modern day Evel Knievels,” Simon said this week.
But Simon admitted there were some perhaps less talented acts who have made it through.
“We also found a dancing owl that didn’t dance, so no fear of that winning,” he explained. “The one I’m dreading winning is a fashion designer, who in my opinion is the worst fashion designer of all time – and somehow he’s made it through because David, Amanda and Alesha are on the judging panel.
“I swear to God I don’t know what they’re seeing because I’m seeing something very different.”
Meanwhile Simon shared some of his highlights from the past seven years of the show, other than the ‘Susan Boyle moment’ of course.
“The first Paul Potts audition – that’s when we knew the show was going to really work,” he said. “Connie Talbot’s first audition. Normally, I’m not a fan of kid singers but when she sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow and I saw 3,000 people going nuts afterwards, I thought she was terrific.
“Attraction’s audition was good, seeing Ashley & Pudsey for the first time I liked. I like all the animal acts.”
Britain’s Got Talent starts this weekend on ITV.
