To think that tonight's BGT results were a load of twaddle?

Alice Fredenham should have been the second act to go through, her voice is AMAZING Hmm

Both performances by the boys were a bit out of tune I don't think they should have gotten through to the semis personally and Gabs seems like a one trick pony.

I give my first Biscuit to myself.

I thought the comedy boy got through? Was only half watching though.

I think Alice has a lovely voice but the song was a poor choice. She should have sung something more uptempo in my opinion. Plus I think the public are fed up with the snivelling, looking out from under eyelashes, lip biting persona.

bugger! It was on tonight? I missed it :(

Alice may have a lovely voice but it was dire really. Judging from my facebook I thought the young comedian had got threw, I didnt see the results.

I don't think he's that funny. The two Irish boys were really out of tune.

I think BGT has had it's day. Too many mediocre singers and cringey 'child stars' I wanted to see a dancing cat TBH.

YABU. Gabs was much better to watch than Alice. She has a lovely voice, but it's uncomfortable watching her because you can tell she's not comfortable being there.

Alice was/is a nervous wreck if she can't cope with doing a 20 second backstage interview without "being overwhelmed" she's not cut out for the rough & ready world of showbiz!

Jack Carrol the comedian went through & was brilliant, & Gabz the young singerwriter was good too, hope she can write a new song for Saturday!

Yeah, I get your points about Alice being nervous, but her voice is still amazing. I really hope Gabs does a new song next time because otherwise her act will be stale.

And finally someone who agrees that the Irish kiddies were out of tune! I thought I must've been watching another show based on other people's reactions to them Shock

I also agree with Sparklingbrook - A lot of the child singers, like Alisxandra, are good when you take their age into account, but have an average voice compared to the singers already out there.

Alice is a sensitive plant who wouldn't last 5 minutes in the industry.

Irish lads were cute but singing at aunties wedding about the limits if their capacity.

Gabs is obviously managed by a professional and pushing her song to ITunes, can't blame her.

Jack is fantastic but needs to intermingle his jokes between his abilities and disabilities.

Love it.

The Irish boys were good for their age but need a lot more coaching and practice to make it when they are older.

Alice has a great voice and I was sorry to see her go.

I think Gabz said she had already written about 30 songs of her own and wanted to perform one of them next.

I liked Jack the comedian but it wasn't all original material, you could see some of the jokes and punchlines coming a mile away.

I've already forgotten who went through on Monday.

I don't understand why they mix the acts up. I think there should be a semi of just dancers, just singers and you would have to have one for acts that don't fit in to a category.

Kids will always get a huge vote, just because they are kids.
