Britain's Got Talent Final 2018
But as it stands the finalists are:
D-Day Darlings - Performers of Vera Lynn's 'We'll Meet Again'. Where the patriotic vote might find a home.
Calum Courtney - 10years old. Sang Michael Jackson's Who's Lovin You
Gruffydd Wyn Roberts - A 22 year old singer from Wales
Tim and Jack Goodacre - The father and son singing duo
Donchez Dacres - An entertaining 60 year old singer. This year's 'fun/ light relief' act. Winner of heat (somehow!)
Micky P Kerr - Singing comedian and all round nice guy! Winner of his heat.
Lost Voice Guy - Inventive taped act by comedian with cerebral palsy Lee Ridley. Winner of his heat.
Robert White - musical comedian with Aspergers. Didn't hold back when addressing the judges! Winner of his heat.
Dance and Gymnastic
The Giang Brothers - Acrobats showcasing their amazing body strength and balance.
DVJ (Diversity Juniors) - Young dance troupe. The brainchild of Ashley Banjo from Diversity. Winners of their heat.
My initial thought is that it's a wide open year, with a collection of genuinely good and very diverse acts, so betting wise that makes it tricky.
I honestly think that the sheer number of singers compared to other acts, makes it more difficult for any of them to individually get enough of the vote, so I'm tempted to rule them out. Interestingly, no singer, other than humour based singing acts, won any of the semis.
Of the other acts, I don't think Micky P Kerr has enough to win, Lost Voice Guy is definitely in with a shot, and with Robert White it's dependent on what he brings in the final. He goes close to the knuckle, so if he gets it right on the night, he's in with a shot.
As for the other acts, dance act Diversity Juniors clearly have good pedigree and so that works in their favour. Giang brothers were amazing, but didn't win their semi (Micky P Kerr beat them) so that doesn't bode well for winning the final.
So I'd say it's out of DVJ, Robert White and Lost Voice Guy. As the only dance act, and with proven form with the grown up Diversity, I'm going to predict DVJ as winners at 7/2. Enjoy the show!
