tokio My­ers tells TV Times News what’s next for him af­ter his Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent tri­umph

TV Times - - News -

hi tokio – many con­grat­u­la­tions on win­ning Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent! how did you feel when ant and dec an­nounced you’d won?

I felt ec­static, re­lieved and just dis­be­lief as well. I felt an ab­so­lutely over­whelm­ing sense of grat­i­tude and ac­com­plish­ment of, ‘Wow, we did it! We ab­so­lutely nailed it’. Since win­ning BGT, I feel like every day has been my birth­day. Peo­ple have been so sup­port­ive and show­ing so much love. I’m just very thank­ful.

What have you got in store for the royal Va­ri­ety Per­for­mance? I’m re­ally ex­cited about it and to be given the op­por­tu­nity to per­form in front of the Royal fam­ily is just in­cred­i­ble. It’s ev­ery­one’s dream.

‘I’ve got lots of time be­tween now and then to be writ­ing, pro­duc­ing and com­ing up with com­po­si­tions, so I think that there will be an el­e­ment of sur­prise. What­ever it is, it’s go­ing to be en­er­getic, fun and some­thing dif­fer­ent for the Royal fam­ily, some­thing that they’ll def­i­nitely en­joy.

is there any­thing that you would like to say to the judges who put you through to the semi-fi­nals and to the view­ers who voted?

A mas­sive, mas­sive, mas­sive thank you and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for tak­ing your time to make that call or get the app and press that but­ton for me. I feel like I’m go­ing to make all those peo­ple proud and I’m ex­cited to take them all with me in the next chap­ter of my life.

Where would you like your ca­reer to go from here? is there any­one you’d love to work with?

I want to be busy, tour­ing, col­lab­o­rat­ing and in­spir­ing. I want to reach as many peo­ple around the world as pos­si­ble, in­spire as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble and be my­self in­spired by as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble. And bring all of the en­ergy and fo­cus back into mu­sic.

There’s a list of artists I would love to work with, from Frank Ocean and Skepta, to The Weeknd and Adele, and to Nigel Kennedy and Lang Lang or maybe a bal­let dancer. I’d like to work with Ed Sheeran as I think we would com­ple­ment each other well.
