Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon has been labelled ‘evil’ by viewers after sending 9-year-old singer Malakai Paul through to the next round with a mere ‘100% yes’.
‘As if the little lad breaking down in tears wasn’t bad enough,’ said one viewer, ‘he then got this slap in the face from Alesha. What kind of consolation is her total endorsement of his performance? It makes me sick.’
Others noted that Dixon’s comment came just seconds after David Walliams’ verdict on Malakai was ‘one million percent yes’.
‘Now I may not be a trained mathematician,’ remarked another viewer, ‘but that means Alesha Dixon’s opinion of the boy was 10,000 times worse than David Walliams’.’
The same viewer also noted that Simon Cowell was particularly heartless in saying that it was ‘a yes from me’ but refusing to attach a single percentage to his verdict. ‘Yeah well, you expect it from Cowell, don’t you? He’s 1,000% arsehole.’
