A kooky couple named Barbara and Bradley are set to shine on tonight’s Britain’s got Talent show, but for all the wrong reasons!
The duo will be seen on the launch episode of the ITV 2012 series this evening and from the off, we knew that they were going to be one of ‘those’ acts. When the platinum haired Barb admitted that she was a poet and her portly pal added that he would be adding his own talent to the mix, but wouldn’t reveal what it was, we knew things could go very wrong.
As they took to the stage, Barbara made Simon Cowell laugh by telling him that her piece of poetry had won ‘best Poem Of The Year’ in a ceremony in Las Vegas, but she ‘couldn’t be bothered’ going to pick up the award.
She also admitted that she thinks Brad looks quite like an owl, so when David Walliams asked if they were dating, she incredulously responded:
“We are not in a relationship, because he looks like an owl! I’m not going to date an owl am I?”
So the act commenced and it consisted of Barb reciting quite a serious piece of poetry, while big Brad flapped around behind her in what we think was supposed to be an interpretive dance.
The judges were flabbergasted by the performance and afterwards Simon asked:
“Have you ever seen what he is doing behind you?”
With a dead pan face, Barbara replied:
“No, I just let him get on with it…”
Alesha Dixon told Bradley that while he was ‘unique’ perhaps he needs to take some ‘dance lessons.
But David Walliams was a huge fan and admitted:
“It brought a tear to my eye! It was moving. You have created a new genre of performance….dancetry! I want to see it again.”
Cowell wasn’t so keen and joked:
“I will combine it in a different way…It was PANCE. I do not want to see it again!”
Tune into Britain’s Got Talent tonight, to see if Barbara and Bradley make the next stage of the competition….would you be surprised if they did? Leave your comments below…
