David Walliams pretty much the winning judge of the season then, getting his golden buzzer act and two comedians in the top three. I do think the wrong comedian won but overall glad that box has now been ticked - arguably most types of variety act have now won the show over the last 12 years (other than cake eating opera singing contortionists!).
Re: the guests this year. Just a thought but with so many musical acts and more specifically Magic Mike Live being clearly a plug for the show I was wondering whether they were actually Product Placement performances rather than invited guests. OK, arguably all performances are product placement but seems a distinct lack of Syco stars this years. I've never really understood why they don't use BGT as the platform for the X Factor winner to release a debut single ahead of a full album in the autumn.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television"
