Britain’s Got Talent bosses have defended 12 year old Henry Gallagher over fakery claims with his audition that aired.
Henry Gallagher has been at the centre of the latest controversy after the shows bosses were accused of giving him preferential treatment during his audition.
Some viewers of last Saturday’s show noticed that Henry’s capo shift position halfway through his performance, which people assumed he had other attempts to audition and the editing team pieced it together for final show.
On Twitter, one viewer wrote: “Why did the last acts capo change down about half dozen frets on the guitar. Was that bad editing? …. Or was the whole thing setup?”
Britain’s Got Talent bosses have slammed the claims blaming it on a ‘editing glitch’. They said ‘Henry was not permitted to sing the song several times’.
A spokesperson for BGT told The Mirror: “Henry performed his song only once during his audition and sang and played his guitar live, moving the capo mid song.
“As with all performances Henry’s act went through normal editing procedures hence the capo appearing to move.”
