Tyce, who is legally blind in one eye, was blindfolded before attempting the final trick in their routine, hanging upside down as his wife Mary dropped from above."Well, we wanted to step up our act, so we added some new elements that we've never worked with before with the fire and a blindfold", Mary said. The judges and audience reacted with horror, and Mary's mother, in the audience with the couple's two-year-old son Jaxx, recoiled.

Last Updated May 30, 2009 4:16 PM EDT Far be it from me to jump on the Susan Boyle bandwagon, because from a financial standpoint in this country, there isn't one. However, on this, the day of the "Britain's Got Talent" final, I found myself being interviewed by the BBC World Service about the difficulties YouTube, and the media companies who own the show, have had in monetizing her online video stardom. Since the people I was on the phone with had the live final on in the background, this got me to thinking, was there a way to stream the show, live, over here in the U.S., and if so, who was streaming it? My search led me not to the Web sites of major, U.S.-based media properties, but to Justin.tv (above) a site which bills itself as the no. 1 destination on the Internet for live video. Only, I've never heard of it. While leaving open the possibility that there were other sites streaming the final (I found justin.tv by clicking on the Susan Boyle trending topic on Twitter search), … [Read more...] about “Britain’s Got Talent” Final Live on Justin.TV!

Glyndebourne is launching a rival to the BBC’s Cardiff Singer of the World contest with a televised search for a new opera star. The Glyndebourne Opera Cup is billed as “the perfect singing competition” and threatens to upstage the BBC’s long-established offering. While both contests offer a £15,000 prize, Glyndebourne’s will also offer the winner a guaranteed role on stage at one of the world’s great opera houses, such as La Fenice in Venice or Opera Philadelphia. It will be broadcast on Sky Arts but Sebastian F Schwarz, Glyndebourne’s general director, insisted it would not be opera's answer to The X Factor or Britain's Got Talent. “I can assure you it will be entertaining. But no red button. No trap door,” he said. Schwarz said other competitions required juries “to compare pears with apples” - perhaps a reference to the BBC contest, in which singers perform works from across the … [Read more...] about Glyndebourne’s Got Talent: opera house launches TV search for a new star
