Walsh scratches his head at Talent

Louis Walsh stepped in to take the place of David Hasselhoff as guest judge in this week's episode of Britain's Got Talent and was left more than a little confused by some of the acts.

The Irishman joined the judging panel on the ITV1 show as it came to London searching for a new star.

First up for viewers on Saturday is seven-year-old Olivia who read the judges a poem with a difference - she had a 6ft snake called Lucy wrapped around her neck while she recited it.

She was swiftly followed by a trio of martial arts-meets-Bollywood dancers and 50-year-old Anthony who mixes his love of art with taking his trousers off - sending the judges hurrying to their buzzers before he can get too far.

Louis got more confused as the acts got stranger with a dance act based on Star Wars and Michael Jackson leaving him scratching his head.

He tells the other judges: "I didn't get it at all. I don't see the point of the act. Didn't get it at all. I just don't get it. I just don't see anything interesting in the act, I just don't get it. Is it just me?"

Things do not improve when Tim enters the stage with a finger snapping act, prompting an exasperated Walsh to say: "Erm, I didn't really get it."

The next act is an improvement - a dance group dressed like Edward Scissorhands that meets with Walsh's approval and relief backstage from host Ant who tells Dec: "Louis got it, he got it."

:: Britain's Got Talent is on ITV1 at 8pm on Saturday April 30.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
