‘The idea was good, but the execution wasn’t’: Britain’s Got Talent viewers have called the singing magician ‘boring’ and claim they’ve figured out his trick
Britain’s Got Talent viewers slammed one of the contestants after he apparently figured out his magic trick.
Lewis Fuller returned to the stage for Tuesday night’s semifinals to secure a spot in the grand finals with his unique combination of singing and magic.
However, he could not convince with his teleportation and telepathy trick and was described by viewers as “boring” and “cheesy”.
He asked judges Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell to pick song titles from a bag, which he then guessed correctly.
Lewis used Amanda’s ring and lit it to perform her song “Ring Of Fire” by Johnny Cash.
Rumbled: Britain’s Got Talent viewers have criticized one of the contestants after he appeared to have figured out his magic trick
Appearance: Lewis Fuller returned to the stage for Tuesday night’s semi-finals to secure a spot in the grand finals with his unique combination of singing and magic
Disappointed: However, he failed to impress with his teleportation and telepathy trick, which viewers called “boring” and “cheesy”.
He then performed Simon’s song and used his teleportation abilities as he appeared to move around the stage while singing.
Then the magician seemed to disappear and at the end suddenly appear behind the judges.
But viewers at home complained that the solution to the trick was obvious, explaining that the images of Lewis on stage were clearly pre-recorded videos.
One said: “He used a pre-shot of himself on the box, went through the trapdoor and there you have it?”
Another agreed, saying, “Lewis Fuller – his audition was a lot better, about 100 times better.” “The boxes on stage were just video”.
Others reiterated that his audition was superb, and one wrote, “Shame about Lewis Fuller.” If he had done what he could in the audition, he would have won the whole evening. Amanda and Alesha ruined his act by calling it “too cheesy”.
Another added, “Lewis is great – although I liked his audition better than this performance.” The spell was too long-winded to begin with, and I don’t like his voice either. He should just stick with the magic and that’s it. The singing is not necessary.’
Someone else wrote: “I’m sorry but Lewis Fuller you are fit but so pathetic and cheesy.” Your audition was better than this performance tonight!!’
A sixth expressed sympathy: “Oh, I feel a little sorry for Lewis. The idea was good, but the implementation was not so.”
But several fans praised Lewis’ efforts, with one tweeting, “Honestly the first half was a little disappointing but when he showed the singing and magic of his audition again it was completely amazing.” No idea how Lewis Fuller pull off that magic can.’

Gushing: But several fans praised Lewis’ efforts, with one tweeting: “Honestly the first half was a little disappointing but when he showed the singing and magic of his audition again it was completely stunning.”
Missed out: Lewis didn’t make it to the final, with the two spots going to Viggo Venn (pictured) and Olivia Lynes instead
The jury was also disappointed with the performance. Alesha Dixon said: “To be honest I don’t think that’s my thing but well done you tried something new.”
Amanda said she agreed with Alesha but kindly added, “You have great demeanor.”
Lewis didn’t make it to the final, with the two places going to Viggo Venn and Olivia Lynes instead.
They are reuniting with dancer Musa Motha and singer Amy Lou Smith on June 4 for a chance to win a £250,000 cash prize and a seat at the annual Royal Variety Performance.
