Britain’s Got Talent final set for battle of the vocal chords

ITV’s hit show Britain’s Got Talent concludes on Sunday night and although 15 acts will be vying to be crowned 2015 winners, according to Ladbrokes’ latest betting it’s a two-horse (and possibly one dog) race.

The bookmakers see the grand finale as a singing-based shoot-out between 5/4 favourites Cor Glanaethwy and Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer act Callum Scott, at 9/4.

After that pair come human/canine duo Jules O Dwyer & Mattise at 11/2, hoping to follow in the paw prints of 2012 winners Ashley and Pudsey who wowed the public with their box of tricks too.

Proving that this year’s show is particularly rich with vocal talent, 15-year-old singer/pianist Isaac Waddington completes the single-figure chances in the market at 9/1.

Hailing from Bangor, Wales are 160-piece choir Cor Glanaethwy whose delicious harmonies have wowed the judges, the audience and the TV public thus far.

With members ranging from aged 7-65, their universal appeal is a massive plus point for the community choir described by Amanda Holden as “stunning, beautiful, peaceful and heavenly.”

During the final semi-final show on Friday night, similar praise was lavished upon Callum Scott who had female knees wobbling and Simon swooning, with his rendition of ‘Dancing On My Own’ by Robyn.

The 26-year-old recruitment officer from Hull drew unanimous plaudits from all four judges on the show, but Simon in particular didn’t hold back.

“I have never heard a guy with the talent that you’ve got”, the X-Factor creator gushed.

Such an endorsement from a man who has seen just the odds singer perform in front of him, has to make Scott the value bet in this contest heading to the final show of the series.
