‘Britain’s Got Talent’ has a wide range of performers from different age groups. From kids to seniors, BGT is filled with surprising talent. Mel Day is another fine example. He’s a 77-year-old singer who attempts the classic Wilson Pickett song ‘Land of 1,000 Dances.’
Judge Alesha Dixon tells Mel, ‘When you got soul like that, it never leaves you!’ Mel responds, ‘I’ve got a lot more to give, baby!’ Judge David Walliams says, ‘I want to have your baby!’ The audience roars with laughter.
Simon Cowell gets a little more serious, saying, ‘Sorry you don’t just walk on this stage at 77 and sing like that. You must have wanted to be a singer when you were younger.’ Mel tells him that he has been disappointed many times.
Simon responds, ‘Well, you know what timing is everything,’ and the judges begin voting. Each one gives a ‘yes’ vote, and it comes down to Simon, who adds some drama.
