Britain’s Got Talent 2013: Steven Jackson, Linda Hewitt, Hasta La Pasta (Mattress Circus) fail to shine

Britain's Got Talent  2013 Judges

Britain’s Got Talent kicked off tonight with a series of acts who weren’t so wonderful but were at least interesting….if only because of their awfulness.

Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams presided over tryouts at the lovely London Palladium and first up to open tonight’s episode of the ITV show was 52 year old part-time artist Steven Jackson.

He didn’t really inspire confidence when he told Alesha Dixon that he’d only been doing the act for a few weeks and it seemed he was having great difficulty in getting his props etc ready.

It turned out that Steven fancied himself as a little bit of an impressionists but after impersonations of Pavarotti and Amy Winehouse, all four judges buzzed him off, with David admitting:

“It was uncanny how unlike all those people you were.”

Simon said:

“I’ve got to be honest with you Steven. Your wigs are like animals. They’re the worst wigs.”

David teased:

“You can talk.”

After four nos, Linda Hewitt was next to the stage and the 50 year old dinner lady and cleaner from Essex wasn’t much better. She fancied herself as a bit of a skater and even when all of the panel buzzed her, she continued to skate around the stage obliviously.

We were a little more hopeful when we saw Hasta La Pasta (Mattress Circus), consisting of Nikolaj Nunk 26, Tiago Fonseca 26 and Daniel Goncalves 29, all circus Performers from London.

However their performance wasn’t very entertaining either and Cowell told them:

“I hate clowns.”

Mattress Circus replied:

“We hate judges.”

Thankfully there was more talent later in the show! Did you enjoy the first three performances on Britain’s Got Talent tonight? Leave your comments below…..
