John was fantastic; robbed by the judges.

However, he did extremely well by beating 4 teenage boys singing (chapter 13) who you would expect to get through without problems on this type of show. Always hoping for a wildcard though!

If his effect had gone as planned ( was not his fault ) he still
probably would have done . It doesn’t however then help if the act in the panel vote off is Simons golden buzzer and that he is also a personal friend of Alesha Dixon .
Anyway to a lay audience nothing probably appeared wrong and John was very funny entertaining and deserved to go through , maybe a wild card now fingers crossed 🤞🏻

I have to agree for entertainment value John was pure class

I am sure if it was all down to public vote he would be in the Finial

Are you insinuating that this show may be rigged in one way or another? Smile

Absolutely not ! I am just saying it didn’t help Johns cause as no one in the history of the show has not stuck up for their golden buzzer act at this stage of the competition .
Plus if it’s close and a personal friend is on stage and you are a judge it makes it a real dilemma for a judge imo Gaz 🙂

Of course the show producers hire acts to come in for exposure knowing full well they can’t actually win. That’s the nature of these shows. This has been discussed many times here and other places.

In other news, Ben Hart won tonight's semi with another magician coming 3rd. So that's now 4/4 3rd places going to magicians (meaning at least one wildcard) and 3/4 winners being magicians. In terms of quantity, a rather incredible year for magic, but for quality perhaps less so (other than John).

I agree fully , I am just hoping John makes it through as he is a class act .
Either way it’s a brilliant achievement to get to the live shows Gaz 🙂

Well done Ben brilliant tonight doing what you do best
I was critical of your choice of effects in the first round which I stand by but tonight you blew them away

Sad that John Archer was up against Alesha Dixon’s friend
Should have gone through

I would be surprised if it wasn't rigged but either way it brings some class magic to the screens rather than exposure type shows so happy days Smile

Wow just goes to show how Fake TV is

Almost as bad as The Next Great Magician Show from 3 Years ago all with the Huge Budget TV show that was the prize given to the winner that never happened !!

A good opportunity for a fly on the wall investigation...funny how undercover journalist's can video and expose politicians but not the populist media and it's moguls. Probably because they would not allow you to. One of the only good things about youtube I suppose! Thank you Matt for bringing that to light!
Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right!

Let’s face it Mathew Wright is an FISM award winning magician, if he worked for the army or the police he would he on the BGT stage , I know 2 people can come up the the same idea but the whole thing sounds very fishy
