Britain’s Got Talent 2011 Semi Finals: Jessica Hobson breaks down in tears because she didn’t get to ‘choose what to sing’ (VIDEO)
Before tonight, we had thought that Jessica Hobson was one of the best singers we had ever heard on Britain’s Got Talent.
We loved her audition, because not only can she sing but she is truly musically talented and her piano playing is just beautiful.
Tonight Jessica was dressed in a stunning black sparkly dress and sat at a glossy baby grand piano, playing a jazzy version of Single Ladies by Beyonce.
However, she failed to live up to our high expectations. She sounded nervous and off key at times and the arrangement of the track was just terrible.
The dance segment was stiff and forced and the judges looked shocked by the slip in Hobson’s standard.
Michael McIntyre ‘sensed’ her nerves but said she did well to give it everything.
Amanda Holden thought she did a ‘really good job’ but pointed out her ‘extraordinary’ nerves and added that she needs to be ‘less rigid.’
Simon Cowell, after being attacked by a fly, told Jess that she started fine and then got ‘increasingly worse.’ He hated the dancers, hated the ‘dated’ version of the song and advised her that she should have sang on her own, without the ‘silly dress.’ He admitted that the talented performer had been ‘let down by the show.’
David Hasselhoff agreed with his boss, and said Hobson could have done better ‘on her own,’ without the big show.
Jessica was devastated by the comments and sobbed while telling the judges ‘I didn’t choose what to sing.’
We felt so sorry for her, but wanted to hear more….who did choose the song? Who forced her to dance? We didn’t get to hear because once it became clear that she was about to spill the beans, she was ushered off stage by a concerned Ant and Dec, who probably had worried producers screaming in their ears to go to a break.
Did you enjoy Jessica’s performance? Was Simon Cowell right? Was she ‘let down by the show’? Compare the two videos and leave your comments below.
