So with the migration to the new-style Wiki it means that all our talk pages have been lost, hooray! For safekeeping (and to keep everything in one place) please can we keep discussion in this forum.
What's on your mind?
The home page looks awful oops.
Comment any bugs you run into here!
I have previously made a discussion on acts that you want back from previous Series, however this discussion will take a slightly different angle. This discussion will be about acts that have never auditioned for BGT before, however you would like them to one day audition for the show. I have seen a similar thread to this on the AGT Wiki, and I held back a while on creating this discussion on the BGT Wiki, as I pondered whether I should create it or not. I then decided that I would as I'd like to know who you'd like to audition for the show. The acts you would like to audition can be acts who have performed on other talent shows such as X Factor, The Voice, Got Talent etc, however preferably not acts who have gone on to win such shows (Like Jess Folley who won Series 1 of the Voice Kids winning X Factor the band with girl group Real Like You last year). Acts who have a small degree of previous fame like Dr Dance who auditioned in Series 13, and foreign acts are also allowed to be here, however more established acts such as magicians and comedians for example, such as David Blaine or Dynamo, and Tom Allen or Johnny Vegas are not allowed to be featured here. This rule with more established acts applies to each type of act, and not just comedians and magicians by the way.
Hello everyone I really wanted to know if anyone here knows what happened to contestant David Williams? when I searched it said that he's no longer dancing but does anyone know if he has social media or anything? he should be 32 right now.
After seeing this thread on the AGT Wiki, I began to wonder what acts know about the BGT Wiki, for example if Gonzo knows about the AGT Wiki, does that mean he also knows about the BGT Wiki? Of course Tariq knows about the site, and maybe one member of Demillie & Muoneke does, however I'm wondering if any other acts know about the site. I have seen before a person claiming they were from The Singing Souls, upon that pages comment section, however it seemed like a hoax as they said they were Louise (The girl in blue), yet referred to themselves as the girl in blue. Please feel free to comment the names of any acts that know about the wiki below, if you know of any others.
This news has been pretty inescapable for BGT fans over the past week, and to my great relief Ofcom have stated that they will NOT be investigating the performance after recieving over 24,000 complaints. ITV have also defended the performance.
Feel free to discuss the moment that provoked a lot of 'controversy' (aka racist remarks) here.

I think I may have found a pattern that BGT began following last year. The pattern is BGT/BGMT, then BGMT/BGT, however the first act in the pattern makes it through to the second round both ten years earlier and ten years later and the second act doesn't progress through the audition ten years earlier, however makes it through to the 2nd round ten years later. My evidence for this pattern is Denton Wilson makes 2nd round of BGT in 2009, and makes 2nd round after being televised on BGMT in 2019, and Lili Davies gets sent home during the auditions after being televised on BGMT in 2010, however makes the second round after being televised on BGT 2020. I therefore believe this pattern will continue next series, with an act from the main show during Series 5 who made the second round perhaps making the second round during the duration of Series 15 of BGMT/ BGT Unseen. On another note I'm not as active on the discussions board as it doesn't seem to support IOS Devices like the forum did, so I'm only active on the discussions board when I am on PC.
Thought the last thread was getting a bit large so making a new one for the live shows.
As we're all probably aware, Simon has injured his back in a crash and will be replaced by Diversity star Ashley Banjo. The finalists will be revealed this Sunday and the Semis will be airing on a weekly basis to spread the show out longer.
Discuss all in here!
So, I think before the live shows, there should be a round. It is like the vegas round from AGT. The judges sent some acts that were deemed good enough for the semis, and eliminate acts that are not good enough for the semis. The rest of the acts will perform once again, and he acts that go through will join the acts that advanced immediately in the semifinals.
What do you think?
With the Fandom site service swapping the forum for discussions I believe I may have found a version of what the discussions board may look like. My Singers+Musicians wiki never did have any activity occur upon its forum, so it was therefore instantly transitioned into a discussions board. I believe all discussions board will look the same or similar, so below will be an image of what the Singers+Musicians wiki discussions board looks like, and what I believe all discussions boards may look fairly similar to:
What's a favicon you ask? Take a look at the page in the tab bar and spot the difference ;)
Welcome all to the Developing the Wiki board! Continue all your improvement-related discussions here.
Colin, on BGT, you were just... the BEST!
To win the show at 89 was just amazing!
I have had a songs you'd like acts to individual in my mind before, however this discussion to me seemed to be a more interesting fit. I personally believe that any of the clean Hamilton songs would fit an audition (It'd be great to see an act singing several differing sides in We Know, and The Reynolds Pamphlet, My Shot however the latter by making it clean would work for solo acts. Acts who wanted more emotional songs could use Burn, Hurricane, and Alexander Hamilton. Groups could sing a clean version of Yorktown or perform The Story of Tonight, or a King George III song, and vocal duos could do a clean cabinet battle, and seeing as it's on Disney+ it'd be nice if Katherine & Joe would perhaps before one if they come back next year). Other musicals I'd like music from to be used for auditions would be more songs from Dear Evan Hansen (I understand that Mark McMullan sang You Will Be Found last year), as I believe the upbeat Sincerly Me!, and the downbeat To Break In A Glove could work alongside Good For You. Finally I believe that School Of Rock the musicals When I Climb to the Top of Mount Rock, and Your in the band could work, alongside a potential Dewey's confession. It'd also be nice to here some Sara Bareilles such as Love Song, or more Billie Eilish too such as Lovely or No Time To Die.
These are but my opinions and off-topic opinions of songs which would work if singers, vocal duos or singing groups sang them upon the show, and I would like to know yours below.
Do you believe that this year there will be a BGT: The Champions (Series 2) like Wikipedia states, or do you expect it to be cancelled for any or all of these below reasons:
Reason 1: it's pre-recorded, and last year it began upon the last week of the summer, thus providing about 2 months for a potential pre-record, as I believe that Series 1 of The Champions was pre-recorded not too long after the final.
Reason 2: There wouldn't be any new acts from any sort of Got Talent show to compete as they are still ongoing.
Reason 3: Same as above really Got Talent shows are still ongoing with the main show and waiting for it to be safe to film the lives, so it'd make no sense pre-recording a champions series (however it could still be a possibility as The Voice hasn't finished it's main show yet, how've they are still showing The Kids version starting this weekend).
Reason 4: The format doesn't seem to work to my knowledge without a live studio audience of 'Super Fans' and some of these come from differing countries, and the judges would have to maintain Social Distancing whilst sat upon the judges panel and would not be able to be called upon to join acts like magic acts for example.
In conclusion I feel as if this year we won't have a second series of the champions myself, unless it's filmed outdoors with a socially distanced judges desk, and the judges maintaining this, however it'd probably just be filled with solo acts for safety reasons too. I only state this however though as shows with a live studio audience cannot return and it would have been recorded after the final without the pandemic having taken place thus meaning that nobody would be able to form a studio audience of super fans, thus meaning the format would not work, much like Amanda thinks the main show won't work without a studio audience for the live shows.
However these are but my thoughts and beliefs, and I would like to here your beliefs as to whether The Champions (Series 2) will go ahead this year as per planned. On another note sorry for the lengthy discussion starter, however I didn't believe this discussion would work otherwise.
Having seen a similar thread present on the AGT wiki here is the BGT version of the question. Do you believe BGT or AGT will come back first, and do you believe that he will go further on the first show back or pick one of the two shows at random? If AGT and BGT come back at a similar time do you expect him to compete upon both shows (AGT for a second time), or do you expect him to withdraw from one and keep competing upon the other? If you expect him to withdraw from one show do you expect him to withdraw from the quicker formatted BGT (as all he'd have to go through would be the second round to the semis and potentially make the final), or the show with the longer format and more rounds of AGT?
I just believed it'd be interesting to see the potential answers to these questions and see what you believe Wesley will do considering the Coronavirus Pandemic situation, and considering the fact that the BGT lives will be back either after summer or winter and I'm unsure on when AGT could return.
