Bosbury's Got Talent Virtual Winners Announced!
Although perhaps not quite the way we would have wanted to have marked the fifth anniversary of Bosbury School's ever-popular talent competition, the closure of the school due to the coronavirus outbreak did not stop Bosbury's Got Talent 2020 from going ahead as this year's contest saw entrants sending their videos digitally to be posted on the school's Twitter page!
The competition was possibly the toughest it has ever been to judge this year due to the huge number of varied entries (nearly thirty in total - an amazing effort!) and the fact that the unique virtual nature of the contest meant that each entrant could make use of any props they wished at home as well as have mums, dads and siblings film them multiple times until they got their act just right, and the Bosbury judging panel on Zoom certainly had their work cut out!
Head judge Miss 'Simon' Spence felt that the best way to determine the winners was for fellow judges Mr. 'David' Ponter, Mrs. 'Alesha' Bolton and Miss 'Amanda' Cooke to watch each act on Twitter in turn via the power of video sharing on Zoom, and then mark each performance out of ten before the judges then pooled their scores together to produce an overall mark out of forty.
We are therefore thrilled to announce that THREE acts tied with the same score for the first place prize, and they are as follows...
This beautiful piece of singing from this very talented young lady from Class 3 fittingly on the topic of rainbows which made Bosbury School's singing supremo Mrs. Walker shed more than a slight tear...
Bosbury’s Got Talent. This is the most beautiful singing and has made Mrs Walker feel really emotional! pic.twitter.com/SZ3Dkm5VuS— Bosbury Primary (@BosburyPrimary) April 2, 2020
... this expertly-presented piece from an incredibly confident and articulate young lady also from Class 3 who had shown great thoughtfulness in inventing a new piece of PPE to help keep NHS workers safe on the front line during this extremely challenging time for them...

Finally, one last well done goes to our joint third place winners, with the bronze medals being taken by this talented young lady from Class 3 for producing an amazing piece of artwork based on the four seasons after taking great inspiration from a YouTube video...

Congratulations again to all of the winners who have received their certificates via email as well as their invites to perform on next year's Royal Variety Performance. The £100,000 cheque had to be split between the seven children who made up the three winning acts, although we are sure they will make good use of their 1,428 pounds and 57 pence as soon as the shops begin to reopen!
Thank you also to all of the other fantastic acts who entered this year's unique competition - their varied entries are still available to view on the school's Twitter page HERE.
Get practising those new skills ready for Bosbury's Got Talent 2021 - which hopefully next year can be filmed as usual in the school hall in front of a live audience!
