Britain's Got Talent makes stars of ordinary people.
A person who is talented at something possesses an unusual innate ability in their field.
Enrico Caruso was a talented opera singer. Paul Potts isn't.
Gene Kelly was a talented dancer. George Sampson isn't.
Judy Garland was a talented singer of songs from musicals. Susan Boyle isn't.
John Coltrane was a talented saxophonist. Julian Smith isn't.
Both George Best and Vinny Jones could play football. George was talented. Vinny wasn't.
Britain's got a load of Vinny Joneses all being told they're George Best. And the British public are happier watching Vinny Jones than George Best!
That's just not right.
