Description

Join us for a light lunch at this FREE event and enjoy an inspired hour with Britains Got Talent Semi Finalist 2016 Josh Curnow.

Josh Curnow will be speaking about what it's really like on a Simon Cowell Talent Show and what really happens behind the scenes. There will also be a chance to meet Josh and ask him your questions about Britain's Got Talent and the Music Industry.

In 2016 Britain's Got Talent viewers were left amazed as Josh Curnow, perfumed a stunning rendition of Green Day's hit Basket Case, which he played on the piano.

After introducing himself to the judges, Josh welled up as he confessed his passion for music and admitted he was once told to give up on his dreams. He explained: "At the age of about 13, 14, I was diagnosed as dyslexic and a teacher took me to aside and said: 'You need to stop trying to be a musician and start aiming for working in a superstore doing shelves'."

As Josh began singing it was pretty clear the judges and crowd were impressed, as they cheered him along. Some audience members teared up, while at the end of his performance Josh's girlfriend stood up and applauded him. It wasn't long before other crowd members gave him a standing ovation, with all 4 judges applauding Josh as he walked towards them.

David Walliams told Josh his performance was "great", before saying: "There's something really charming and likeable about you."

Simon Cowell commented: "You've got a fantastic personality. You look great, very charming, and you really have got a great voice. And I'd like to make a point to that teacher that he obviously didn't know what he was talking about."

Josh got 4 yeses from the judges and was through to the next round, telling the judges: "Thank you so so much."

PLEASE NOTE: This is a FREE lunch time event, however, non-attendance will incur a charge of £10 which will be invoiced to delegates who book, but then do not attend.
