To think you shouldn't encourage delusional people?

We have a local "celebrity" in my city, he posts prank videos etc and has about 20,000 followers.

He's got an audition for BGT and posted a video of him singing asking for comments and stated he does not want negative comments.

People are posting comments saying how amazing he is and he's going to win, when in truth his singing is just average.

I always wondered why some people go to these auditions when they really just are not good enough and its because friends and family encourage their delusion.

He has an ego and huge self belief.

If his singing is just 'average' you could equate him with Cheryl, Mel B and Victoria Beckham , being average hasn't done them any haŕm has it?

Good luck to him, he's got more nerve than me and plenty of others.

That picture is awful, reported.

(Not to mention what a horrible fucking picture for all concerned).

That'll teach me to be skiving on the internet blush

Thats something that you'd find on the LadsBible or some shit.

So well done. You have the maturity of a teenage boy.

Ignoring the pornographic image Rose, he might have decided to audition anyway.

Your opinion is one thing, others might think he's worthy of a slot, is he better than Wagner, remember him?

EeeuuuK! What was the point of posting that?

Stop posting, the troll will keep bumping this. It's been reported several times, presumably.

And you couldn't have made your point about delusions and fame and what it can lead to without posting that picture? No need at all

If he's got 20,000 followers then chances are he's been asked by the BGT talent scouts to audition, even if he is 'just not good enough'. If anyone encourages delusional people to audition it's the programme makers, all in the name of entertainment.

Fucking horrible picture. Reported. And no, you weren't attempting to stimulate debate. You were firing an attention-seeking missile in order to disrupt debate.

See I have come to the party late and don't know what the person posted- disappointed

Ephedra Fri 05-Dec-14 16:11:08

You really don't want to know Wannabe

I feel a bit sick.

Be relieved, Wannabe not disappointed. It was the sort of post that you can easily live without ever seeing.
