Ant and Dec have praised 'Britain's Got Talent' impressionist Paul Burling.
The presenting duo have hinted they believe the funnyman - who wowed the judging panel with his impressions of Harry Hill, Scooby Doo, Popeye, Homer Simpson and other TV favourites - has a good chance at winning the competition after he was commended by judges Piers Morgan, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell and received a standing ovation for his comedic sketch.
They said: "Finally we had Paul Burling who Piers said was possibly greatest impressionist they'd ever had on the show. Trust us when we say that a standing ovation for a non-singer is no mean feat. Could a non singer/dancer actually go all the way and win this year's BGT?? Thoughts please? (sic)"
The TV pair have also spoken out about the "good vibe" during the London audition which aired on Saturday (15.05.10), and thanked 16-year-old contestant Josh Barry - who sang Otis Reading's 'My Girl' - for lifting the judges spirits.
They wrote on their website OfficialAntandDec.com: "Talented London student Josh Barry continued the BGT tradition of finding great young singers, and helped set the tone for the good vibe the London auditions seemed to give off. Everyone was in a really good mood in old 'Laandan' town, not least Mr Grumpy himself Simon Cowell who was in an unusually laid back state of mind.(sic)"
