Since her first appearance on a TV dating show in 1991, Amanda Holden has come a long way. In 2002, BBC1’s Cutting It was her big break, but now she’s probably best known for being a judge on Britain’s Got Talent. Since 2007, she has been a judge on the show.
During an interview on “Heart Breakfast” on Heart Radio, the topic of Britain’s Got Talent came up. She talked a lot about one of her favorite bands, Chapter 13, and said that she thinks they have what it takes to win the show. She joked to the people who follow her on social media, “I think they have what it takes, and I’m going to talk about it all the time on my social media and hound the country.”
Lucy Horobin, who filled in for Jamie, said, “Next thing you know, she’ll be running them.”
“Oh, that’s a good idea,” said Amanda in a cheeky way. I’ll get there before Cowell!”
The four teenagers who make up the band Chapter 13 did not let anyone down with their last performance on BGT. The three guitarists and drummer played a medley of some of Stevie Wonder’s best songs, which wowed the crowd and the judges. The crowd loved everything about their performance, but especially the guitar solo.
Amanda was the first judge to say something after everyone stood up to applaud. She was again blown away by their skill. “ “I don’t think I’ve ever seen four young musicians work so well together. You did a great job, drummer. The guitar player did a great job. Some of the faces you made were really funny. I just think you were totally amazing.”
Then, out of the blue, she stood up and hit the Golden Buzzer hard, sending the boys straight to the live shows. The crowd went crazy, and as confetti fell from the ceiling around the four boys on stage, they just stood there in shock. No one, not even the band, thought it would happen. One of the band members said it best when he stood and looked up at the falling golden confetti with a look of pure amazement on his face. They wanted to pinch themselves.
Amanda ran up to the stage with Chapter 13 to tell them how happy she was for them. Her yellow satin dress almost went well with the golden confetti on stage. It could be a sign. She might be right, after all, that this band has what it takes to win the show.
