Agree Kieron the egg trick was brilliant just felt he is so much better than what he then went on to do
Have seen Ben perform many times and agree that he is a top performer
Certainly not a criticism of Ben as a magician and you are correct he is through to the next round and with right choice of material could go further

John has a good point I saw Ben last year in a show along with Jonathan Goodwin escape artist and Luis de Matos it was a great show run for several weeks in the West end

But I think this was a poor choice to use stooges and Twins you only have to Google Ben Hart BGT and there are several exposure Videos and various TV forums that have given this away

The fact that Simon looks amazed or the audience does means nothing it's TV and can easily be edited

The problem now Ben has got a tag that he used stooges and Twins so his credibility has gone down the pan

Which will cost him votes !

I hope the farting guy wins. If there's an act that's a pure representation of what Britain is it's definitely the fart guy

Good luck to John Archer and 4MG tonight , Johns a top seasoned pro who is both very very funny and very magical , a brilliant all round talent .
4MG are youngsters but have showed the bottle to get up there and do what they do well and itís a brilliant piece of marketing by the team of Peter and Russ to get H and the boys to form a boy band . I hope they all storm it , itís great for magic .
I do despise exposure on YouTube though by idiots a day or so later , as magicians we know the methods anyway so itís other magicians who are just jealous and ruining it for their very own which is so wrong Gaz 🙂

Yes I agree it takes bottle but come on 4 force cards !!!!
And most lay people know that cards can be forced then having it printed on Tee shirts just so obvious for words

I personally like DFB if I havenít got a great deal on me , but a TV semi final using your own phone I am not so sure .
I would think they will get through though as it looked a poor semi final imho . Overall they did a decent job though for youngsters so all the best to them Gaz 🙂

I think that just forcing something has become far too common on these shows- look at both Dave and Finn's performances, both of Matt Stirling's, both of the Haunting's, both of 4MG's and John Archer's. Obviously this should not be obvious to the audience but with something like the T-shirt reveal, it is pretty clear what is happening, even if they don't know how it was forced. Remember that for a layman, working out that it was forced means for them that it hasn't fooled them (as far as they are concerned). John Archer's and the Haunting's acts disguised them much better though, as there were other effects that didn't make the force a focal point.

Great stuff , fortunately the public didnít fall for the opera singer old chestnut ie relying on the fact that they be must be amazing as no one understands it lol . Hopefully they donít fall for the sympathy card in the final and vote for the dog and the fumbling get all wrong so called magician / Policeman lol 🙂
