One duo hoping that they can impress the Judges on tomorrow night’s Britain’s Got Talent, are best friends Sue Son and Janine aka Addicted (both 23 year old students). The pair met at school and have been best friends ever since. As Janine explains to the Judges their’s is a “classical act” with Janine on the keyboards and Sue on the electrical violin. Janine goes on to explain that she “is a composer as well and I wrote the piece we are going to play called Chance”.
The Judges are not impressed with Janine’s composition and all three don’t take long to buzz with Simon saying, “I think you are both talented musicians, especially you with the violin, but I don’t think the two go together at all. I thought the song was dreary and indulgent and I don’t see where you are going with this”. With Amanda agreeing that it would be “something she’d hear in Covent Garden and it sounded like you were both playing completely different pieces of music”.
It’s a resounding no from all three Judges, but as Addicted leave the stage and the Judges talk between themselves all three agree that violinist Sue impressed them and they ask producers to bring Sue back on stage on her own.
With Janine left at the side of stage Sue goes back on to talk to the Judges and Simon has a proposal for her, “we have had a conversation and we think you are really good but none of us think the act is very good, what we want to ask is if you will come back to audition on your own tomorrow?” Sue looks torn with the decision in hand, does she betray her best friend or take the Judges up on their offer, with the audience all shouting “do it” and with Simon pushing for an answer she only has seconds to decide.
We won’t have to wait long for Sue’s decision and not long after she returns to see the Judges, on her own. After being given the opportunity to audition as a soloist Sue is hoping that this time around she will get a yes.
Before she starts her performance Simon is keen to know if the friends have fallen out now Sue has decided to audition alone, “of course not, we’re still the best of friends”.
Playing Storm by Vanessa Mae on her electrical violin, Sue Son manages to complete her performance without one buzz from the Judges and gets a standing ovation from the audience. Amanda says, “I know it was a tough decision to leave your best friend, but that is going to be the best decision you ever made because that was phenomenal” and Simon agrees also describing the act as “phenomenal”. With a stark contrast to the previous comments the Judges delivered it looks like Sue Son definitely could have made the best decision of her life.
