'Britain's Got Talent' Finale Branded A 'Fix' By Viewers
Scores of Britain's Got Talent viewers were left fuming over last night's result which saw Chelsea pensioner Colin Thackery pip fellow finalist, X, to win the show.
Military veteran Colin, who was branded a national treasure throughout the show by fans, saw his dreams come true as he will now perform in front of the royal family at the Royal Variety.
But some fans felt that mysterious X, whose identity had been kept secret throughout his performances, had been robbed of a win during the final on Sunday evening.
In a shock surprise, X was revealed to be 2018 golden buzzer act Marc Spelmann, but the twist didn't see him take home the trophy.
Plenty of fans flocked to Twitter to protest that Marc should have won instead of Colin, with some even going as far to suggest the show was a 'fix'.
"X was robbed! I'm sure Colin is a lovely fella and he fought for our country so thank you. But X was the better talent and should have won!" shared one viewer.
While somebody else tweeted ahead of the winner being announced: "If Colin wins over X I will be fuming, that face reveal was AMAZING."
"Another fix on #BGT X should have won, best moment I've ever seen on that show!" echoed another on team X, and a fourth fumed: "What a complete and utter fix."
A final added: "Not taking anything away from Colin, but the sympathy vote has proved vital again. The best act of BGT was the performance of "X". That cannot be argued with. The intelligence required in it was 2nd to none. End of #BGTFinal."
Congratulations Colin Thackery for winning BGT however, like many others, that X reveal blew me away. Quite possibly my favourite moment in all thirteen years. #BGTFinal- Conor (@nqccob) June 3, 2019
So @BGT is over and I'm so please for Colin he is a true gentlemen but X won my vote... since his first audition up to the "reveal" he was amazing and has talent! I can see why the public voted that way just hope we see X again soon #BGT #BGTFinal pic.twitter.com/ZaI81UBatk- victoria barnett (@f1totty) June 2, 2019
However, Colin had plenty of supporters who were over the moon to see him crowned winner of Britain's Got Talent 2019.
"I am so proud of Colin the queen will love him as much as I do #BGT such a well deserving winner and it makes you appreciate things," posted one.
While another championed: "So happy for Colin!"
#BGTFinal everyone saying oh colin shouldn't have won he's got no talent, I'd love to see you sing aswell as he does if you are lucky enough to reach his age. Better than boring X who's performances are blatantly setup and rehearsed :sleeping::sleeping::sleeping: #notmagicatall- Dan Cheesman (@Dancheesman1982) June 2, 2019
Absolutely buzzing for Colin Thackery, 2019 @BGT winner. Fully deserved. Had a sense he was quite special from the get go. Also commiseration to X for keeping it classy with his final remarks. @antanddec #BGTFinal- Salah Mohamed (@TheRealSalah) June 3, 2019
Haters gonna hate, Colin! You had our vote.
