Britain’s Got Talent 2013 Glasgow audition spoilers: Fans furious at Simon Cowell over pole dancer Tiff Finney & Elite band snub

As we are all aware, a lot of people were angry at the Scotish part of the Britain’s Got Talent auditions.

Not just for Simon Cowell’s lateness (more on this later) but also because of his bad decisions.

Most of the acts, including a sward swallower were not that great. Then there was a band, that was, according to most the best act of the day. Elite, a brilliant band, who were swiftly backed by the audience after the judges decided they weren’t half as impressed.

When stripper and pole dancer Tif Finney did win Cowell’s approval, David Walliams said it was too sexy for a family show, with most of the audience agreeing. When Simon insisted it was ok, David proceeded to rub his bum against the head judge asking to be spanked. Further highlights included Little Eye, a 77-year-old tap dancer, a rugby style dancing dog, Wee Slick, 4 male dancers an elephant and a bunny and a 17-year-old with a marvellous singing voice. Attendees will also remember “milk the sausage”. There was also an audience member that got up to swear at the acts, causing a lot of commotion. Simon kissing David on the shoulder and hugging him also generated a big cheer.

Meanwhile, it wasn’t just Amanda Holden and David Walliams who were angry with Simon Cowell for his lateness at the Glasgow auditions. The fans too were furious with the judge for turning up THREE hours late yesterday. Twitter was flooded with furious messages aimed at the music mogul for not showing up and letting the audience stand outside in the icy rain and cold until he arrived. What really angered them was that once he arrived he did not even give the fans a second glance but entered the venue at a brisk pace. When word got out that the reason the auditions didn’t get underway on time, was because Simon had been in the bath, the audience was furious. David Walliams however braved the weather to talk to the fans, shake their hands, take pictures and give hugs. He tried to boost the morale, but even he wasn’t able to get the fans in before Cowell. This, of course is a strange rule, what does Cowell gain from letting his audience freeze outside until he arrives. He knows that he won’t be there in time and will only anger people. It seems strange to us.

He has probably angered heavily pregnant Lara Stone too, as David’s wife and little dog Bert had accompanied David to Scotland. The couple had made a weekend of their trip (arriving on Friday). They were seen by most of the Scottish public out on the town shopping and taking in the views. She would have probably enjoyed a comfy flight to and from home on Mr Cowell’s plane.
