Richard Branson’s multi-faceted empire has taken a step into the world of light entertainment, more specifically talent spotting! One arm of the conglomerate is Virgin’s industry leading Virgin Media brand, which provides Internet, TV, and other forms of media Briton’s love to consume by the yottabyte!!
Here’s Mr Branson giving you a short intro of what the competition is about.
Virgin Media are sponsoring the UK’s favourite talent contest ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ which has been entertaining the nation since 2007, producing some truly unique stars. This year’s series sees Simon Cowell and co adding funny man David Walliams to their all-important judge line up – this should guarantee some unforgettable viewing!
To celebrate this, they are running a ‘talent school’ of their own. Using the wonders of user generated content on the interweb they are taking submissions from people like you – and in exchange are offering the chance to win tickets to the live semi-final or even final show on ITV!
To demonstrate the levels they’re hoping for, they have enlisted the skills of some talented individuals, such as Yo-Yo master Stefan Benjamin, Basketball don Tarryn Algar and even boxing legend Lennox Lewis, who gives an example of how mentally fast you can use a skipping rope!
However, they’ve not forgotten about good old hip hop, and have enlisted the skills of UK beat boxing pioneer Killa Kela who, like Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, dated actress, singer and model Patsy Kensit! Take a look below!
