My first guilty pleasure is two in one really. My first admission is that I LOVE Britain's Got Talent. When I was younger I used to love just about every reality show that came out, back when the concept of reality-based TV was still a novelty. I poured over Big Brother, Pop Idol, Pop Stars and even ridiculous ones like Shipwrecked. However, over the years I, like many people, have become bored with the same 'we'll make you a star' concept and people who want to take the easy route to success, while Big Brother has become everything that I hate with the world.
Saying all this, I love Britain's Got Talent (and Strictly but that's OK). Firstly it's presented by my two favourite people - Ant and Dec and they can put no foot wrong in my opinion. I grew up with them on Saturday morning TV and will watch just about anything they do. However, BGT also has just the right combination of humour, talent and useless people to make it a firm standing in my Saturday night schedule (though I REALLY wish they would get rid of Alesha and Amanda).
I loved them instantly and when they sang Bring Him Home for their second audition I was like YES. Anyway, to cut a long story short, they ended up winning BGT. I wasn't really fussed about whether they won or not (I definitely wanted them to win and thought they were the best but small children often get the vote and Mr Cowell would have picked them up regardless) and I'm not sure if they would have won if they hadn't have sang Les Mis all the way through (I would have liked to see them do some other musical theatre) but I get it.
Anyway, they are now releasing an album and I'm all over it, especially as their first single to be played from it is LET IT GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO from Frozen. Yup, massive Disney/Frozen fan here. Anyway, that's my guilty pleasure - let me know what you think and have a listen to the video below (skip to 2:51 for the singing).
