If you ever watched “Britain’s Got Talent,” you know that some of the contestants often have a surprise up their sleeve, something nobody would ever expect. Of course, that’s what makes these individuals’ talents so intriguing. However, it’s not uncommon for us to see a performance with a little something “special,” only to roll our eyes at how horrendous, wasteful, and utterly embarrassing the act was.
Taking a time machine back to 2010, a group of seven males known as the “Chippendoubles” appeared on “Britain’s Got Talent” wearing matching black robes and white masks. At first impression, these performers were mysterious and a tad bit creepy. It was bound to be “one of those” performances if you know what I mean. Would they be synchronized dancing to Marilyn Manson? Perhaps performing a cheesy magic trick that involves dollar-store blood and gore? Who knows!
Surely, their appearances had us all wondering who these men were and what on Earth they were going to be doing that would be impressive enough to appear on TV, let alone, in front of “Britain’s Got Talent” judges. However, the Chippendoubles shocked us all; we finally understood the meaning behind their name when the music began and when they each took off their costumes one-by-one! We’re not going to spoil it for you just yet!
To everyone’s surprise, each of the seven men revealed new outfits as realistic impersonators, from James Bond to Gordon Ramsay. The audience cheered and roared. Peering over at Simon, he seemed amused too, and you know this is difficult to come across. Simon is the toughest judge of the lot!
When coming to the judges’ comments, of course, one couldn’t help but hear what Simon had to say. He admitted that the Chippendales’ performance was “One of [his] favorite acts.” The judges gladly moved the Chippendoubles to the next round for whatever surprises they would reveal next.
Do you think that they lived up to their hype after their first audition? Let us know what you thought about their time on the show!
If Simon Cowell could find the act so intriguing as to say it was one of his favorites, surely you would enjoy it too! Be sure to check out the full performance in the video below (and to see who the other five men were impersonating as). Most importantly, you have to watch the video to find out who the last impersonator was that had Simon hysterically laughing!
