Britain’s Got No Talent

Despite not being on the judging panel for Britain’s Got Talent this year, Simon Cowell has reportedly insisted on more auditions for the show because he is no impressed with the standard so far.

Judges David Hassellhoff, Michael McIntyre and Amanda Holden are to be told to search the country again looking for the next George Sampson, Spelbound or Paul Potts.

Cowell is apparently keen for the judges to look through thousands of auditions on YouTube after the success of other online finds, such as Justin Beiber. An insider told the Daily Star: “Simon thinks this will be an exciting new dimension for the younger generation.”

The panel have already chosen their favourite contestants for the live semi-final of the competition, and Cowell is expected to join as a judge for this stage.
