BGT Semi Final 3: Show review
Finally, we had a relatively straightforward Semi Final. The favourite, Richard Jones won and the second favourites, Boogie Storm also made it through to the final. At Novelty Bets we are pleased to have predicted the top 3. Our tip to qualify Jack Higgins unfortunately did not quite make it, but given he started off as 6th favourite for the show, a pat on the back for us spotted that he would do much better than that.
BGT Semi Final 4 Preview
Listed below are the acts performing in the fourth semi final, including their YouTube video to remind you of their act. We also include our views on each act and prediction on who will get through to the Final.
Remember, two acts from each Semi Final go through to the final on Saturday. The top act as voted by the public automatically goes through to the final. The second and third acts as per viewing public votes will be presented to the judges who will decide which to put through. If judges are deadlocked then the act with the second highest number of votes will go through.
Predictions for BGT Semi Final 4
We expect Beau Dermott to live up to expectation and storm away with this semi final. She has the young and innocent factor going for her, married to a top notch voice. She will surely get the universal support from the judges, theatre audience and most importantly audience at home.
Balance should be in second place, which leaves one other act to fill the top 3. This is a tough one, since most of the other acts are very good, but do not necessarily stand out from the crowd. The one exception to that, based on their audition, is the Collaborative Orchestra & Singers. Our concern is how they will go down without the surprise factor, but we believe they are strong and popular enough to get top 3 off their own merit as performers. However, just as a note, Collaborative Orchestra has been viewed nearly 7 million times on YouTube. That’s almost 3 times more than Balance, but half of all Beau’s views. It will really come down to the evening’s performance as to who will go through
But predict we will and we predict winner as Beau. Second and third for Balance and Collaborative Orchestra, with Balance squeazing through to the final.
Betting Tips for BGT Semi Final 4
This is a difficult one for betting tips, since both the acts we expect to get to the final are odds on to do so. There just isn’t value there at the moment. Having said that we do think Balance is vulnerable to the comments of the judges and there is a risk that his semi final performance may not have the wow factor of his original audition. If that were to happen, it could let in the door for The Collaborative Orchestra. They are currently best odds of 7/2 with William Hill and Bet365 to get through to the final. That might just be worth a small punt. A very small one!
Betting Tip: Back Collaborative Orchestra to get to final from BGT Semi Final 4 at odds of 7/2 with William Hill
Acts in BGT Semi Final 4
Balance, Beau Dermott, Bespoke Candi, Bollywest Fusion, Christian Lee, The Collaborative Orchestra & Singers, Danny Beard, Tumar KR, Vox Fortura.
Here is a 12 year old singer, that we think will live up to the hype. She absolutely wowed the judges, and the audience with a stunning rendition of Defying Gravity and quite deservedly received the Golden Buzzer from Amanda Holden. She has a wonderful voice, and a real star in the making, and must be favourite to get to the Final as winner of this heat.
This is a dance act with a difference. A mix of great move and comic timing, that stands it apart from all the other dance acts in this year’s competition. It received a standing ovation from the judges, and likely would have been Golden Buzzered, had the judges not already used their’s up. We really do hope this can get to the final.
Dancing, flame throwing dinosaur act. Good fun, but not to be taken too seriously. Unlikely to progress.
As the name tells you, this is an Indian Bollywood inspired dance troupe. Good at what they do, but there is nothing that makes them memorable enough to get enough voters to put them through to the final.
Comedian / Magician. We actually really enjoyed this performance a lot. The magic was good but it was all about the performance around it. It is more a comedian that does magic rather than the other way round. Not quite to the standard of Tommy Cooper, but good nevertheless. However with a magician already in the final, we doubt this will make it two magic acts for the audience to enjoy on Saturday.
The Collaborative Orchestra & Singers
This certainly was a memorable act. What started off as just a bloke playing the piano, progressed via several flash mob style interventions into a fully fledged orchestra made up of singers and musicians who had been sat amongst the theatre audience. Really original and surprising. The question is, now we are all in on the act, and we don’t have the element of surprise will they still be able to set themselves apart from the crowd? We fear they might just fall short.
Drag artist from Liverpool, with a great voice and outsized personality to boot. We can see this potentially getting into the top 3, though perhaps not to the final itself.
Robot dancing group. Watching them was like watching a cartoon, as they were able to manipulate their bodies into impossible positions. Very entertaining, but perhaps does not stand out enough, especially on an evening where we expect Balance to be the standout dance act.
Classical music vocal group. Very strong performance, and could do well on the night although we’re still not sure if they’re called Vox Fortura or Vox Fortis?
