The saying might be all that glitters is not gold, but we have to disagree as on tonight’s Britain’s Got Talent a group of sequinned sailors look set to cruise to the next round of the competition with their entertaining act.
The Showbears seemed less worried about performing and more concerned about impressing “cute” Simon Cowell as they waited backstage for their moment to shine.
The fab five have worked together for three years doing charity gigs and David Walliams even joked “Simon they could be the next One Direction.”
Wearing sequinned sailor outfits the five bearded wonders launched into a high energy nautical themed version of the classic It’s Raining Men by The Weather Girls, which soon had the crowd and judges clapping along – all except for Simon of course.
While the rest of the audience got into the spirit “Mr Nasty” put a dampener on things and buzzed his buzzer of doom, however fortunately for us the other three judges were bowled over by the boys in blue (and silver) and gave The Showbears a standing ovation.
Amanda opened the comments saying: “I have just died and gone to heaven.”
Comedian David Walliams went one step further saying: “I just want to sing that song with you!” He didn’t take much convincing to get on stage, joking “ I may just be too camp – I may send it over the edge.”
He joined the delighted group onstage for an encore donning a sparkly cap with Simon admitting “He fits in so well!”
This time even Simon gave a standing ovation although despite David giving him a sparkly hat it doesn’t look as if he’s ready to join the act yet!
Alesha told them: “I think the country it going to fall in love with you – so entertaining” meanwhile Amanda said: “I think the Royal Family would adore you.”
Latest Showbear recruit David Walliams told them: “I was in heaven – I just want to join and permanently have fun with you sailor boys!”
Simon’s insightful comment was: “Everything was rubbish but it was sort of good.” He’s a confusing one that Simon!
So with four yes votes David’s answer to One Direction is headed for the next round of the competition.
BEAR’S NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOWBUISNESS
