With the loss of a couple of our main shows, the forum`s gone very quiet, but we can`t let one of the old stalwarts go without a thread!

Always pleasing to see plenty of WTF??? prices being taken, and we have some real beauts already this year, the standouts being, as usual in Specials, those at the top of the market;

Tom Ball, laid at 3.1!!! Jon Courtenay wasn``t a singer, he was a comedic, piano-playing singer songwriter. Colin Thackeray was a Chelsea Pensioner. Scotland dragged Jai over the line. Paul Potts was, well, he was Paul Potts! Tom`s good, and likeable, but he`s no 3.1 shot, max red

Born To Perform, laid at 3.0, obviously get the feel-good-for-voting-for-them vote, not sure that`s enough, much harder for a group than it was for Lost Voice Guy and, if they sing the same song three times, it`ll make that 3.0 even madder. Least inexplicable position of the market leaders, but still max red at the prices

Frontline Singers, matched at 7.0; if a genuinely frontline nurse who was dealing with the chinese virus during the height of the boll0x can`t trouble the judges, this lot have nfc, max red

Dane Bates Collective laid at 13.0; who? Despite being made something of, as if he`s world-famous, I`ve never heard of him, or his dreary `collective`, max red

Only really backed two acts; Amber and Nymeria are the best dog act we`ve seen on this, a whole new level above Pudsie, got a bit at 200. And the best, most entertaining act of all, `The Freaks`; on them at 16.0. Both acts have to somehow give us three different routines, which won``t be easy, but there`s not much depth of competition

Depending on price, I`ll likely be backing Maxwell too; he`s made Tom`s 3.1 even more ridiculous

Why do they have to make out he's a busker?  Dress him up as some sort of "Tim Nice But Dim" HOBO, when in reality you are more likely to see him in a suit!!

Not scientifically measured, but;

65 minutes running time
20 minutes of ads
5 minutes of an incestuous and self-loving introductory lookback
10 minutes of incestuous and self-loving choosing semi-finalists, who weren`t revealed!
5 minutes of incestuous and self-loving tubby boll0x
5 minutes of fakery with that doctor
15 minutes of other twaddle, mostly of fake crowd reactions, cowell hugging gimp boys, walliams chest-bouncing ant, judges fist-pumping and lip synching to dreadful West Coast rock from the 80s and geordies talking over the acts. Oi, Cowell, you can PHUCK RIGHT OFF with this brand-killing onanism!
Leaving just 5 minutes of action!

The boy singer was good, but that was the perfect song choice; even if he can he do others so well, young singers have a dreadful record

Attraction Junior were most disappointing, a dismal dance act done in silhouette; cliched and banal messaging, rather than the innovative shape-forming emotion-stirring of the originals

The choir were good, but not as good as that Welsh crowd

The doctor lost me before he started singing, for going along with the fake radio stuff. Who votes for fakes? Besides, which singer do you vote for? The upper-middle class doctor on five grand a week, or the busker on a few coins and lots of abuse per hour of standing in the cold and rain?
