Britian’s Got Talent

LG introduced me to one of the most popluar YouTube videos right now. It is obvious why LG thinks this a cool clip. But what most people don’t know about LG is that he is also a soprano, just like this Brit.

Truly, LG has never learned to sing anything past what he sang in church primary. He can hold a tune in soprano, but is still trying to figure out how to sing other manly parts of music. I do give him kudos for always practicing though.

And, what does this have to do with English Ed&Et you ask? Well, hello, Simon Cowell! He is one of my favorite Britishman. I love his honesty. Americans just can’t handle people like Simon and I. This clip is from his show, “Britian’s Got Talent”. This male soprano is just amazing! It is no surprise that he won the grand prize which consisted of a good amount of money and a chance to perform for the Queen.

From the clip comes the English word of the day: goose pimple! Doesn’t that just sound nasty? So people in the UK actually have pussy pimples when they get those tingles? Nah, I’m just kidding. We know what they mean, but really, just so you English people know, in the US, they are called goose bumps, not pimples. The word pimple is only uttered when referring to the yucky adolescent thing we call acne.

  1. I have a love/hate relationship with Mr. Cowell. We go way back. Not really, but sometimes I have a full-on grin when I watch him on AI and other times I want to punch him. I think I need counseling.Also…Dallin LOVES to listen to this man sing. It’s really the only time he stands still; when he’s watching this.
