    This is supposed to be basically the best of British talent !!!!! Oh dear. I didn't find much talent in this lot, except possibly managing to get those bear costumes on and doing a lot of practice with the music to get the steps right ! I don't think I'd have the guts to go on a stage and cavort around like that, let alone on TV with thousands and thousands of people watching !


    Although they were voted through to the next stage, they didn't progress any further ........................... thank goodness.

    Scraping upturned oil drums comes to mind.

    Yes you could have a point FourPart ! Yet basically the final acts were much better than last year's, except that one with the polar bears and another one, which was sooo significant that I can't remember it !

    I remember the old days of "New Faces" & "Opportunity Knocks" - although I much preferred "New Faces". That was based on a panel of professionals - a bit like a "Dragons Den" of the entertainment world where, if members of the panel thought the contestants had some potential they would end up getting contracts, whether they won or not. On the other hand I used to like Mickey Most. He could be the most heartless, rude so-and-so going, but it couldn't be denied that he was an expert in his field, and that field was as a Record Producer. He knew what was talent & what was flash in the pan garbage, and made no bones about saying so. Celebrities who made their names on those shows, back in the 70s are of the calibre that they lasted, long term. Many of whom are still stars to this day. Many others, however, are now sadly well into their twilight years, which probably has something to do with the recent demise of so much of the real talent we've all known & loved for years.

    I hope this video comes off ! It is quite fascinating. If it doesn't work, perhaps you may have better luck by getting on to Youtube and searching Hologram Whales in the gymnasium ! Notice the reaction of the youngsters in the foreground !

    It is incredible isn't it. Those youngsters appear to be totally gobsmacked ! As you say, it must be an amazing experience to actually 'be there'.
