Britain's Got Hungarian Talent

June 10, 2013

The Hungarian shadow-dance group ‘Attraction’ won this year’s Britain's Got Talent show on ITV with 27% of the viewers’ votes. The Hungarians finished ahead of a teenage comedian from Yorkshire and a pair of singing brothers from Wales.

The British newspaper Guardian notes that the eight-strong troupe Attraction, whose participation on a show supposedly highlighting native performers had led to criticism, won the most public votes after a British-themed display that included a performance to Land Of Hope And Glory and the voice of Winston Churchill. Simon Cowell, a judge on the panel, said the result had been a surprise: "It just shows that this country welcomes people from all over the world, and they loved this act," he said.

Having won the contest and the GBP 250,000 (close to EUR 300,000) prize money with it, Attraction's leader Zoltán Szûcs said the result was amazing and that he wanted to thank the British public. The group's performance was against a backdrop that included the Union flag, the Olympic rings and the Queen's profile.
