‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Judges Quickly Discover That This Isn’t Your Average Piano Solo…
03 February 2017 Humanity
At first, when Nicholas Bryant stepped onto the stage for his “Britain’s Got Talent” audition, he didn’t make very much of an impression. Judge Amanda Holden took one look at Bryant and glanced at her co-judges with a quizzical, “Seriously?” look on her face.
He was so shy that Judge Simon Cowell had to prompt him for his full name, and seemed unimpressed with Bryant’s humble mannerisms and stated desire to “get my music out there.” Cowell just shrugged at the end of the interview as Bryant took his position at the piano.
He began to play, the introduction to Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” which was enjoyable but unremarkable. At the 12 second mark, something unexpected happens: a solo violinist wanders onto the stage to join Bryant. Then a second man comes onstage and cues a horn section from the audience, which stands up and begins to play. They are then joined by a string section, a choir, and an electric guitar played solo from a box seat, and with Bryant pounding away at the piano, it becomes an astounding rise of energy and music quite different from its unassuming introduction.
Judge Alesha Dixon said, “I did not know where to look. That was one of the most brilliantly put together performances I have ever seen. Fabulous!” Cowell agreed.
