''Britain's Got Talent'' is an Creator/{{ITV}} TalentShow where people perform talent acts with the aim of winning a public vote and perform in front of [[UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfWindsor HM The Queen]] (for the second series HRH The Prince of Wales) at ''TheRoyalVarietyShow''. Each contestant performs in front of three or four judges. The judges have three/four buzzers and can push them if they want the act to stop. All buttons pressed- the act stops. Tolerated primarily for the ridiculous and often hilariously bad auditions and the inevitable scathing responses.

* SoUnfunnyItsFunny: Donald Camber's act consisted of him half-mumbling and {{Corpsing}} his way through an overly-long and agonizingly atrocious joke: ''Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' (or, according to him, Amsterdam) goes out for a walk and returns to his flat to find a man waiting there, who asks the Hunchback to teach him to ring the bells of Notre Dame. Quasimodo does a demonstration and pushes the bell over to the trainee, but it hits him in the face and knocks him out the window. A passerby finds him and says to Quasi, "There's a man down here, do you recognize him?" Quasimodo responds with, "No, but that face certainly rings a bell." Cue three X's from the judges. Donald's upbeat attitude and constant barely-concealed laughed kept everybody smiling regardless.

* {{Determinator}}: David J. Watson, the only person to date who has auditioned for the show on four separate occasions. He [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9E0m3Q0SR8 first appeared]] in 2008, where he did political impersonation act that was hilarious for all the wrong reasons, then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctZCyXbl9iA showed up again]] in 2010 where he performed a bizarre mix of ''ComicBook/IncredibleHulk'' and ''Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy''. His [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAL4Gyknf-o appearance]] in 2011 saw him try to pull off "magic trick" that didn't really amount to anything more than a high school science experiment. In his most recent attempt in the 2013 series, he brought back up in the form of two colleagues, one of whom seemed not very enthusiastic in being there. His act involved a small comedy sketch where David pretends to drill through a wall and into a person, who then 'comically' spins around. This was achieved by having one guy arc the top half of his body over the wall, and then the other guy waves a pair of fake legs. It was as bad as it sounds. Only David Walliams seemed amused.

He then returned dressed as a DragQueen magician's assistant named "Miss Direction"; while the magician did a basic "cut the rope and make it whole again", his sole contribution was to eat an extremely spicy chili, resulting in him wretching and sounding like he was about to vomit for the whole act. A terrible ''Series/MrBean'' impression followed the year after. His most recent attempt consisted of him standing behind a screen and doing "impressions" of pop culture icons so poor it more closely resembled a bizarre Avant-Garde art project than any of the characters he was trying to resemble.

* TheFaceless: 2016 gave us Boogie Storm, a group of six dancers wearing [[Film/StarWars Stormtrooper helmets and armor]] that completely obscured their faces. They also never spoke during their audition, so the judges couldn't even confirm genders.
