    There's a bit of a price difference in this market already.

    Twist and Pulse Dance Company are 7/2 (bwin) 4/1 (Betvictor ) and 5/1 (Ladbrokes).

    I think Skybet are under estimating them with odds of 9/1. Twist and Pulse have been here before, they are a couple of likeable, geeky lads with some watchable moves, who finished as runners up in 2010.

    They've come back for another go at it, only this time bringing with them their own little dance crew. T&P are the Choreographers but took no part themselves in the first performance. Their crew got through with an easy decision but i'm expecting T&P involved next time or the round after, probably next time though.

    There's still plenty of rounds yet and the market will fluctate as new acts perform but i get the feeling that 9/1 might be the biggest price we'll see on them and i reckon they'll be finalists. As could be The Mend, a group of four lads who look the part and can sing.

    Its going to be on my t.v for the series according to the women in my life so i'm going to be throwing 30pts at it, it'll help me get through watching the cringeworthy twats who have no talent.

    10pts Staked so far...

    Twist and Pulse Dance Company 5pts @ 9/1 Skybet.
    The Mend 5pts @ 12/1 Betfred.

    I've given up with BGT punter. I've been taken infected by The Voice.

    I've given up with it too Gav, i think i just had a couple of bets out of boredom there.
    I've heard The Voice is good from a few people now, i've yet to check it out though.

    After years of exploitation and public humiliation being smothered across our screens courtesy of the Dark Lord Cowell, it's refreshingly pleasant to watch a show with a positive outlook. There are a few tears, but not contrived or milked. The four mentors have great chemistry and are genuinely likable. I'm surprised by my acceptance of Will.I.am and perhaps my least favourite mentor is Jessie-J - probably because she seems rather common and continually 'down wid it.'

    I like fact that they cant see the singers, that's a good start for me.

    Actually BGT is worth following again, there's some decent acts and the favourites are going to get turned over (Charlotte and Johnathan).
    I've had two more bets since my last post, i messed up by backing Chelsea Redfearn who didnt make the semi's, 5pts loss, but i'm chuffed to fcuk to be on Ashley and Pudsey @ 11/1 with 5 pts.

    I'm hoping The Mend and Ashley and Pudsley go through in the next few minutes

    aaaargh gav, can't believe you are championing the voice which is incredibly tedious. true it has the better vocalists but the mentors make this like watching coal form!!

    The Cowell franchise has become a parody of itself. Neither can be taken seriously and I detest the tabloid approach - build them and knock them down.
