My experience at Britain’s Got Talent
It was an early start to a Saturday morning, but it was worth it… we arrived, after and hour and as half long drive, and went inside. By the time we had gotten there, there were already so many people! So many different acts and therefore, a lot of competition. Everyone was so excited to be at BGT and everyone there seemed to be so kind. If I’m honest, I found it a bit nerve racking so I can’t imagine how the people who were auditioning felt! There were just so many people there… it goes to show how large the performing community is and that there are so many ways in. we were waiting in a long line for a while before they took us outside of the building onto the grass. They gave us some BTG flags and different souvenirs to take out with us. There were hundreds of us outside all dressed brightly and all smiling! We were lined up down the side of the building and we could see all the camera equipment… as the camera came past, we had to make as much noise as possible, by shouting and cheering. It was like a Mexican wave of cheering… everyone was waving their flags and jumping up and down hoping to get noticed by the camera!
After this we were taken back inside, into a different room where there was lots of loud music and it was very sparkly. As we went in we could see all of the cameras, dressing tables, golden chairs and BGT signs… it was all so exciting! The whole room was full to the brim; they put on about four songs and we were directed as to what to do e.g. waving our hands in the air, jumping, cheering and all those sorts of things. After that we had to wait for the people in our dance school to get called out for their audition… we waited for them in that room and took lots of pictures.
Everyone was exhausted at the end of the day but it was an amazing day and I really enjoyed myself, it was sooo much fun and everyone had a wonderful time.
