BRI­TAIN FI­NALLY FINDS ITS TAL­ENT

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A BELT­ING episode saw Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent fi­nally hit its stride this week.

Open­ing with The Zim­mers – a geri­atric troupe who sang the Beastie Boys num­ber You Gotta Fight For Your Right To Party.

Some of them were so old, they re­mem­ber when that track was called You Gotta Fight For Your Right To Par­ti­tion (Ire­land).

“I wanna see you guys in the final!” said judge David Wal­liams, which seemed a bit op­ti­mistic. That is still months away and flu sea­son is not over yet. By au­tumn, the Grim Reaper will have forced The Zim­mers to have more per­son­nel changes than Atomic Kit­ten.

Fol­lowed by the won­der­fully loopy Mena Swift, who com­pared her­self to Ni­cole Scherzinger. Af­ter a boil wash, pre­sum­ably.

Then Richard Bo­longi, whose mu­sic Bo­longi-n-the-bin.

The star of the show was Mr Zip ( right), whose act ini­tially seemed to be im­per­son­at­ing Frank Bruno. Dur­ing his men­tal health break­down.

In fact he was a singer – and his “Where me keys, where me phone?” rap was one of the truly great BGT mo­ments.

Fi­nally, they topped it off with a dog who could walk on its hind legs. Yes, it was great to see Amanda Holden back from ma­ter­nity leave.
