    Jai McDowall has defied the odds and won Britain’s Got Talent 2011, beating bookies favourite Ronan Parke.The 24 year old blew the judges away with his confident, yet understated performance of To Where You Are. Amanda Holden said he was the “dark horse of this competition” and she was right.

    The care worker was completely shocked when his name was announced as the winner.
    He said: “I can’t believe it. It’s amazing, thank you so much.” 12 year old singer Ronan Parke, a favourite amongst the judges, was second and boyband New Bounce were third. [/p]

    Funny no one posted this, I live in Bahrain and started following Britains Got Talent from this season onwards and right from the Auditions, my favorites were Razy Gogonea, Edward Reid, Jai McDowalll & Michael Moral.

    Congratulations to Jai McDowall [​IMG]

    I wanted him to win because he wasn't a favourite. Everyone thought Ronan or New Bounce would win. I didn't vote, but he was a worthy winner.

    Shit man, right on target [​IMG]

    But on a serious note, not to take away anything from the kid, he has a great voice and his audition was mind-blowing, had he sung that in the final, he would've won.

    Yep, good to see a Scottish win [​IMG]

    I still think Edward Reid should've been in the final instead of Steven Hall....I wanted to hear an Edward Reid rendition of Happy Birthday song lol.

    The fact that the TOP 3 were ALL singing acts is crap to me. If you want to sing go on X factor or something, it's meant to be a variety show not a bloody singing or dancng show which most of the acts seem to be. I would much prefer someone with a unique ability / entertainment win. Like Razy Gogonea, Edward Reid or David and Karen (magic act).
    Out of the finalists though I think it should have been either Razy Gogonea or Les Gibson.

    I agree on Razy Gogonea but Les Gibson messed up today and that resulted in his loss, otherwise he was a strong contender for the title too.

    As long as moo face annoying Ronan didn't win, I'm happy.

    Once his voice breaks, he's screwed. He's a great singer for a kid! but his voice is way too immature and girly. He'll just be another Justin Bieber- except without a fan base.

    I liked the guy on the piano [​IMG]
    Pure talent can never win though...

    Shock? I think 'apathy' is a word better suited to the situation.

    Not only tech related stuff is regarded as "news" here. You know what news means in general don't you? That is what's applied in this section of GBAtemp [​IMG]

    And this is news worthy, since it's one of the biggest reality shows.

    You know its funny you seem to think your pompous reply would make any difference. Yes I know and never stated that it was only tech related, but it is not the biggest reality show, and even so it is just related to britain, not the world. And in any case it's a reality show, who cares who won?! (Besides you and relevant people who have watched this crap in Britain?) What, should we start posting in the news section whenever someone wins any reality show, contest, lottery?
