Sam Hollyman Rejects Britain’s Got Talent Publicly
SAM Hollyman, 15, will not win Britain’s Got Talent. The Stafford local rejected an invite to appear on the show when researchers saw his performance with Canadian star Michael Bublé at Birmingham’s NIA.
But surely BGT is the idea launch pad to embark on a meteoric career? It might be – so long as you sign the contract.
Says mum Paula:
“We had calls from various agents and were obviously thrilled when Britain’s Got Talent rang to ask Sam to audition. They sent through a very detailed contract which you have to sign before auditioning… He loves what he’s doing now, he does a weekly acoustic night, yet he wouldn’t be able to do any of that if he went on the show.”
Mum says she’s “cynical”. You might be too. It was mum who asked Bublé to sing with her boy. It was mum who contacted the show to say her son would not be taking up the invitation, rather than just ignoring it.
Sam Hollyman might not need BGT in the future – but he seems to need it today…
