Britain’s Got Talent   Leave a comment

Ben, a friend and Wolfson classmate, is a member of Oxford’s premier all-male a cappella group, Out of the Blue. Somewhat on a whim, the group decided to enter Britain’s Got Talent (which, for my American readers, is similar to, well, America’s Got Talent). Of course, OOtB did very well in the competition, and I was able to watch their live Thursday semi-final performance. When the British public decided that a middle-aged engineer dancing the Macarena was more worthy of progressing to the finals, both the judges and the studio audience were outraged. The performance was fantastic, as was the chance to see a live TV broadcast. Check the respective websites for more info, videos, etc.

Unfortunately, cameras weren’t allowed in the studio, so this shot is from ITV’s site.
