Australia’s Got Talent – Tommy Franklin? Seriously?
How or why did Tommy Franklin aka #saltyrain get into the grand final of Australia’s Got Talent? And it was the voters that put him there not the judges. Semi-final two was weak but was it that bad that he was judged to be the best act by Australia?
Maybe I am missing something but I am not getting it. He should not have even been put through into the semi-finals. His act is like someone having an acid flashback while dancing to music. His parents must be proud he now has a potential career path of being an ambassador to dance party events.
Maybe Dawn French was embarrassed by the result as apparently she stood up breakfast radio show Fox FM for the second day in a row.
The judges then had to decide between Raymond Crowe and singer/song writer Reuben Koops. They put through Raymond the illusionist who is a professional in his field rather then the young guy trying to catch a break.
However on these shows you don’t have to be an amateur and many professionals turn up where do you draw the line?
Last night the semi had some interesting acts.
The highlights were dance group Academy of Brothers, Yu Hui and Michael Boyd. The Rykba Twins must be getting phone calls from Cirque to Soleil were surprisingly engaging as well.
Seaton Kay Smith’s comedy was too ethereal for many so will struggle getting votes. Class Act the girl group were just not strong enough in their vocals or dancing and Angel the 13 year old singer was popular with the judges however have to admit it was not to my taste.
Who did you like from Semi Final three? Does Tommy Franklin have a star quality that I am not seeing?
