Primary School Music Teacher Mike Woodhams’ Incredible BGT Audition

When primary school music teacher Mike Woodhams auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent 2024, he exuded the charm of a beloved child entertainer. However, the judges were unprepared for just how extraordinary his performance would be.

Mike isn’t just a singer; he’s a music impressionist, skillfully mimicking artists from Boyzone to Anastacia with a unique, campy flair. As James Blunt’s 2004 hit “You’re Beautiful” played silently on the screen behind him, the judges were initially puzzled. But when Mike sang perfectly in sync with the video, making it appear as though Blunt was lip-syncing to Mike’s voice, the audience erupted in laughter and applause.

Mike’s act, filled with humor and trademark mannerisms, included props like flower bouquets and sunglasses from each iconic music video he impersonated. Judge Bruno Tonioli called it “the best vocal impressions I’ve heard in a very, very long time,” while Alesha Dixon admired how Mike nailed both male and female vocals.

Simon Cowell, equally impressed, laughed throughout the performance and praised Mike, saying, “I’m so surprised, because you really undersold yourself […] You’re the kind of act I really believe could win this whole show.”

Mike left the stage with four yes votes and an enthusiastic audience, quickly gaining over 1 million views on YouTube in just two weeks.

Mike Woodhams, a 37-year-old music teacher from Milton Keynes, teaches students from Year 3 to Year 6 how to play instruments like the recorder and ukulele, and how to sing. He holds an MA in vocals from The Voice Study Centre in Colchester. Despite his professional background, fans love his natural talent for entertaining families and his vibrant, joyful approach to music.

Mike’s audition was a hit, and judging by the international attention he’s received, he’s poised to continue surprising and delighting audiences in the live shows!
