This week we’re in Perth. Can they followup on what Melbourne and Sydney had to offer?
Curly haired 15 yr old Josh (shorty D) use to be in a group called D12. Now he’s a solo act of dance and rap. I don’t think anyone expected what was to come. Shorty D is the complete package and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him in the final. Kyle is wowed and tells the other judges “I don’t know what the rules of this show are but I want to take this kid to New York and get him signed now!”
Our next contestant Maria swans in wearing her “lucky red dress” hoping the judges don’t compare her too much to Susan Boyle. Singing Phantom of the Opera “ wishing you were somehow here again”. She definitely didn’t get compared to Susan Boyle, but Kyle did tell her “I really liked it apart from the camilla Parker Bowles impersonator look”. 2 yes’s from the other judges and Kyle deciding not to give his vote… but all it takes is 2 votes so Maria is through.
12 year old Daniel gives us a show of skil with his soccer skills. Faultless and “adorable” will get this talented young man through to the next round.
We run through a few attempted acts of dancing and singing but no one makes the cut.
Flames of Polynesia is off to to a good start and Danni’s mesmerised by him … and loves the performance as well.
David Cronin and his musical bells get the simple “oh that explains it” when he announces he’s from Adelaide. Without hesitation David is off the stage without a single yes.
James, Scoot and Spark, our trained stunt performers with their mini bike stunt team. Their firey performance does more than just light up the audience, but they also set off the fire alarms in the building. “Love the act, I think it must be quite difficult to even balance on those things let alone do the tricks” Danni. 3 yes’s … more stunts to come!
Back from the break and trying to fight their way to the next round, literally, Team 9 lives with their martial arts and parkour performance.
Then 47 year old Mark brings his spirituality and wholesome healing therapist shows us why he’s been “trying” to get his music out there for 2 decades. Buzzed before he’s done, but he doesn’t seem to get the hint. And even after he leaves the stage he still seems to think they just didn’t give him a chance. Here’s hoping there’s more talent to come. Perth isn’t looking good so far!
Maybe not… an undie wearing electrician in some sort of … I don’t even know what to call it. Is this guy serious? “I don’t think we’ve ever had someone turn up and impersonate a testicle before”. Oops apparently he was meant to be an emu. Really?
Mum of 2 Aimee-Elizabeth, bought up in the USA but spending a large part of her life in Africa, this mum is back in Australia to pursue her dream of a career as a star. Singing “oh holy night”. “You, and that what you did there, is talent” exclaims Kyle. Aimee has a definite 3 yes’s and she’ll be throug to the next round.
Andrew Won and his Ninja show are up next. He’s not the ultimate fighting machine… the gear yes, but the skill…. um, no. Kyle gives Andrew the challenge to kick the boom mic and he’s through. He falls flat on his back but he makes the kick. I have no words at this stage…. I guess we’ll wait and see what he does next round.
Ann Ferguson brings some much welcome comedic relief. Mixed responses from the audience, but Danni loves her, despite her awkwardness,
I have to admit this next act does make me laugh. I’m not sure about talent but she definitely gets a laugh using everyday food items and body parts to “narrate” a song. But this is the last we’ll see of our animated contestant.
Cocky little Sex Bomb with his farmyard yodel is almost as odd as the previous act. It really shows that the lure of a large cash prize will make almost anyone give it a go.
Andrew Marr thinks he’s funny. He’s the only one at first. But after his warm up he’s actually kind of funny. 3 yes’s …. finally some talent. He’s through to the next round.
Our singing and dancing senior citizen superstar shows us that at 75 you can still have personality, charisma, talent, and charm. But is it enough? Brian thinks “you’re mad as a hatter but you’re brilliant”. Kyle disagrees but 2 yes’s get him through.
Jess Mews with her hula hoop fever. The judges give it a go but come off in bruises not talent. Jess will get to show us some more in the next round.
Bob Hay writes a song that sounds more like a jingle… a really really bad jingle. No chance.
Adam Murby and his sister Selina give us illusions. Even our presenter who’s only feet away from the act can’t figure out how they did it. The judges are amazed and Kyle is even more keen on the little sister. There’s no doubt that Adam and Selina are through, not just in this show, but potentially through to a great career if Kyle’s opinion is anything to go off. Yes yes, and yes.
Some interesting acts, and some pole antics to wow kyle, show a diversity of talent.
To end off tonight’s show our 7 year old pianist leaves the audience and judges with a sense of WOW. “Flight of the Bumblebee” by Rachmaninov . The judges sneak on stage to get a better look at this child prodigy. No one can quite believe what they’re hearing. At the age of 7, with 5 years piano playing under his belt, there’s no question here. Yes Yes and 100 million percentYes.
