Have you ever taken part in a talent show-type event where you had to perform in front of people? Or just a general performance of some sort? If you didn't then what would your talent be if you had to take part in one now? Bring on the anecdotes. x

My only experience of a talent show specifically was in primary school. Me and a group of friends performed a dance routine to Christina Aguilera's 'Car Wash' laugh.gif goals, I was then whisked off to the dentist straight after so I didn't even find out how we did (not particularly well iirc) until the next day, rude.

Me and my friends were planning to go on Stars In Their Eyes Kids as Girls Aloud (I was Nicola as my hair was sufficiently more ginge as a child) performing 'Love Machine', but it never went ahead as a couple of members of the group fell out I think and then I believe the show stopped being a thing anyway.

Then not exactly a talent show, but I had to sing 'I'm Feeling Fine' in a school production of Bugsy Malone and S Club 7's 'Never Had A Dream Come True' for our year 6 leaving assembly laugh.gif I was made to censor "you'll always be my baby" to "you'll always be my one" lmao. I was so much more confident as a kid, I'd hate to do this now!

I'm doing this next week! Performing "Dead Ringer for Love" as Meat Loaf. I haven't sang in public in years, so have no idea how it's going to turn out.

Ooh best of luck *.*

I did a comedy act as part of our Year 6 leaver's assembly on our last day of term with my late best friend and another friend who I've genuinely not seen since that day laugh.gif

I think we got a few laughs kink.gif

Good luck Brett!

The last time I sang in public was at a karaoke night on holiday in 2012. Lady Gaga's 'You And I', that was when I found out I was way too nervous for this kind of thing now laugh.gif

When I was about 10, there was this evening get-together at school. I put on a big black wig and lip synced to Shania Twain for some reason. mellow.gif I have no idea how I managed to overcome my stage fright to do that, I got a huge cheer and all. I also won a general knowledge quiz on the same night, goals. There was also a popularity contest among the students lmao, I didn't win that. x

I also sang as part of a huge choir of school kids at this big concert called the Hallelujah concert (I'm not sure if it still takes place), I think it is / was like a Christmas type thing, it was televised and everything.

Me and my two friends hosted a talent show at primary school, probably about 7 years ago now laugh.gif

We were in year 5 and went to the headteacher to ask if we could do it and she said yes. laugh.gif

In hindsight it was a complete MESS. I thought I was like Simon Cowell or something laugh.gif I remember saying ‘no’ to ‘The Hula Girls’ who were about 7! laugh.gif

One of my friends won the talent show coincidentally xx

I won my primary school talent show when I was 5 with One For Sorrow by Steps, which my sister likes to remind me of by doing an impression of 5 year old Liam rotf.gif I was gonna do our talent show in year 7 at school singing.... I Kissed A Girl ironically but I didn't go in the end lmao how embarrassing would that have been.

I did one talent show in 7th grade, my brother and cousins and I formed a band and we played two songs that I can't remember now but I was on keyboard. We didn't place but we managed to keep the band going for two more years (skipping the talent shows to do our own concerts at the school instead *.*).

I ended up helping at the talent shows every year after that, preferring to be behind the scenes rather than performing. In fact the school used my dad's sound system because they didn't have their own equipment lol, so I ended up helping even for several years after I graduated, it was fun!

Our school had his ‘talent show’ and in year 8 our whole class decided to do an I’m A Celeb type thing, but we weren’t allowed to bring in animals, so we had to do stuff like fill buckets with dog food and put little plastic Stars at the bottom and all the contestants were teachers laugh.gif it was an absolute mess but it was SOO much fun (no actual showcasing of talents tho)

Once in primary school sang a Rachel Stevens song for a Pop Idol for Comic Relief. There was a shortened version of 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' in one and then a Year 6 pupil did Eamon in front of the class.....

On our year 6 residential trip, we had a talent show one night and we had to prepare an act in groups. I teamed up with a couple of friends for "Puppies Got Talent" (that grammar tho), involving the little McDonalds happy meal toy dogs laugh.gif essentially a spoof of BGT with us puppeteering these little dogs lmao x it was ridiculous and I'm not entirely sure anyone appreciated it other than us but it was fun laugh.gif needless to say we didn't win x
