Britain’s Got Talent 2013: Fix row erupts as Labrinth’s brother MckNasty is put through by judges, but he’s already been SIGNED by Simon Cowell!
Though this year’s Britain’s Got Talent auditions only began last week, there’s already a ‘fix’ row as the judges have reportedly put rapper MckNasty through to the next round of the show…
And he is not only the older brother of X Factor favourite Labrinth, he’s also reportedly already signed to Simon Cowell’s record label, Syco!
MckNasty, whose real name is Joshua McKenzie, has already enjoyed success in the music biz, and has played gigs with the likes of Tinie Tempah, Lady Gaga, Wretch 32 and Devlin.
TV Biz states of his BGT audition, “Fans at his audition were shocked when show supremo Simon seemed already to know about the 27-year-old from Hackney…”
A show insider said, “It looked like someone had been pulling strings. Simon went to ask Joshua a question — he said, ‘Do you have any… tell me something interesting about you.’
“It was as though Simon was going to ask if he had any famous relatives, that he already knew who he was.”
Joshua said, “I’m always at the back and I want to be at the front. My brother is Labrinth, he is pretty cool.
“I like the fact that I have to chase him.”
In response to cries of ‘fix’, a BGT spokesman said, “To claim that he has been given any advantage is ridiculous and totally untrue…
“He wowed the audience and went through on his own merits.”
Here’s a look at Joshua in a “short film” that’s on YouTube…
