Simon Cowell is reportedly worried about the future of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent, because he thinks the good acts are beginning to ‘dry out.’
The music mogul has already hinted that he intends to take a back seat on next year’s series, planning to skip the audition stages altogether and rejoin the panel for the live shows only.
Now The Mirror reports that Cowell was overheard telling friends he felt that “the pond had been fished dry”.
We don’t know if there truly is no talent left in Britain, or if the judges are putting through the wrong sort of acts but this year’s series certainly hasn’t lived up to previous ones for us. Only singing Grandma Janey Cutler and gymnastic troupe Spellbound have really had that wow factor and the fact that ratings slipped to just 9.5 million, it’s lowest yet, on Saturday night would suggest that many British viewers feel the same.
Do you think Britain’s Got Talent is coming to the end of it’s lifespan? Has the British talent pool dried up already? Leave your comments below.
