Basically what I am asking is what is the strangest thing you have noticed when re-watching auditions that you did not realise before?, or 'What did you learn about acts via the press that you never knew before'? However I can't actually title this post that as it's too long a title. For fairness purposes you can't really say that when rewatching a magicians performance you 'knew exactly how they did the trick', this is more background details. So I was rewatching a couple of magicians performances last night (Namely Magical Bones, Jasper Cherry, James & Dylan Piper, & X), and I noticed something that slipped past me the first time with Magical Bones & X.
Now this was not however either of them conducted their magic tricks, this is completely different and unrelated to that. So in his audition Magical Bones showcased what looked to be a sketch of what Henry Box Brown would wear. At the end of his audition, Magical Bones wore similar attire, however during both the Semis and the Final, he wore similar attire once again bar a couple of colour changes. However this was not the biggest of the two things I noticed. In the case of X, I fell asleep and never watched the result or him perform again, so I never knew he was Marc (Okay, yeah this first part of the X discovery is set up as a joke, however we'll get to more serious stuff now). What I actually noticed with X is that when he showed a VT before removing his mask a John Lennon book was seen beside his daughter Isabella in her cot. Some of you may believe I am reading deeper into this then I probably should, however I disagree, as you see in the S12 Semi-Finals he at one stage created a picture of Ghandi, and guess how his performance ended? It ended with Spelmann mixing up each of the pieces, in order to create an image of John Lennon! So Basically I think when he revealed himself as X towards the end of the VT that was shown, this book was placed in Isabella's cot beside her, in order to make reference to his S12 Semi-Finals performance!
In terms of the Second question I asked above, for me it is that Paul Hunn was talent scouted in S2 & S3 however refused to audition, however auditioned in S4 and was buzzed off and laughed at (He was scouted as he's The World's Loudest Burper and has been since 2009, so perhaps in 08, the talent scouts knew as to what he were trying to achieve maybe?), and that according to DailyMail Diversity never auditioned on their own accord, they were talent scouted. Just to end off my portion of this discussion Hunn was actually on ITV's Game of Talents in it's first episode which was broadcast back on Saturday 10th April, wherein he displayed his talent of being the 'World's Loudest Burper'.
Just as a final note, feel free to notate any discoveries that you found from re-watches or external media below. I look forward to reading any replies that are posted below, however I most probably will not always be replying to them.
