Ryan O'Shaughnessy - Britain's Got Talent 2012 Final - UK version

Well, Britain's Got Talent came to its inevitable conclusion Saturday, and as predicted Ashleigh & dancing dog Pudsey won... a well deserved win too as they did 3 different routines which were highly imaginative & beautifully executed.

As we have already seen 'Pawsome' on ~IB~, today we will listen to Ryan singing a song of his own dedicated to the girl he loves but hadn't told when entering the competition! I regard this song as outstanding and it puts me in mind of great song writers such as Lenny Kravitz, Bryan Adams and James Morrison... due to the expressive lyrics and simplicity used to express complex emotions.

A contrasting, lively act was the highly talented and original group the Loveable Rogues who reminded the panel of popular band Madness with their fresh distinctive style. There first song, 'Sick of Love' has been running through my head ever since!

Only Boys Aloud were also in the final, an all male Welsh choir who sang in Welsh & whose music made a tremendous impact upon the audience. The choirmaster has done a brilliant job of forming this 100+ strong choir and giving these young lads a real opportunity to make something of themselves and contribute to society.

Besides the singing acts, Saturday's final was highly diverse and even included Aquabatique, a sychronized swimming group who had a tank in the car park!

All in all it was a thoroughly enjoyable show and definitely proved that Britain's Got Talent!
