Britain’s Got Talent 2011: Stephen Mulhern explains Jessica Hobson song scandal!
Stephen Mulhern has attempted a little bit of damage limitation work on behalf of Britain’s Got Talent bosses today.
Many viewers were shocked when watching last night’s semi final, when talented singer Jessica Hobson broke down in tears after being criticised by Simon Cowell.
The music mogul hated her song choice of Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’, the arrangement of the track and also the fact that she left her trusty piano to attempt a dodgy dance routine for the second half of her performance.
However, as he gave his opinions, the 19 year old started sobbing and confessed that she wasn’t allowed to choose her own song for the semi finals show.
Many viewers took to forums and social networking sites to complain about the move and a fan commented on our blog post:
I felt terrible for Jessica just goes to prove that it all set up! What’s really nasty is that they set her up to knock her down as it was Simon (whose bloody show it is) that got her to do something she was clearly not happy with!
Not her choice of song and the dance act had their music changed giving them 6 days to rehearse.It`s like somebody wanted to reduce their chances.
However, Britain’s Got More Talent presenter Stephen Mulhern has attempted to make light of the situation and speaking on This Morning, he said:
The reality is, the producers want the show to be right and they want performers and the auditionees to be the best they can be. So they’ll help them, they’ll support them, they’ll guide them.
She’s amazing at the piano, I wish she’d stayed there at the piano but it just didn’t work out.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on Jessica’s performance below!
