Amanda Holden defends Britain’s Got Talent producers scouting for acts!

Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden has defended the shows producers from scouting for acts.

Amanda Holden has spoken out about Britain’s Got Talent producers looking around for acts to audition for the show – She doesn’t see the big deal in it.

Producers commonly look for talent then invite individuals or groups to audition for BGT.

In the current series of BGT, Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer act Sarah Ikumu, a schoolgirl singer was ‘recruited’ by producers.

Speaking recently in her column in The Sun, Amanda said: “I never understand why, every year, there’s controversy around some acts on the show having been scouted by the producers,

“So what? We want as wide a spectrum of talent as possible.

“Plus, there’s always a mix of people who just show up on the day, and people who’ve posted videos on sites like YouTube in the hope of being discovered.

She added: “I don’t get why anyone would have an issue with that. I certainly don’t.”

Although there has been some controversy about producers looking for talent. Is it fair? Is it right? Or is it wrong?

Britain’s Got Talent continues next Saturday on ITV.
