Simon Cowell is blown away by a miming pig on 'Britain's Got Talent' tonight (29.05.10).
The 50-year-old judge admits to owner Christine that he's pleasantly surprised by what he believes is the world's first Michael Jackson miming pig following her performance with her pet Timmy on the reality show tonight.
Timmy - who mimes along to 'Beat It' while Christine dances beside him - leaves the audience cheering and the judges open-mouthed by the unusual tribute to the late King of Pop.
Christine said: "I thought it would be a nice tribute. I think Timmy is a very talented, intelligent little pig. I think I could see Timmy performing at 'The Royal Variety Show' and they would really love him."
Following their performance, the media mogul appears impressed, yet admits he wants to know how far Timmy can go.
He said: "I've got to tell you Christine, I thought you were kidding when you said he was going to mime. Does he know other songs? Can he do opera?"
Another act to leave the media mogul open-mouthed on tonight's show is Dance Flavourz, a carnival-themed dance troupe who sport a number of revealing outfits.
As Dance Flavourz take to the stage Simon says: "This is what we've been waiting for."
After an energetic routine, fellow judge Amanda Holden adds: "I couldn't keep my eyes off all the bits and bobs wiggling about. Perfect."
At the end of the show, Simon, Amanda, and the third judge on the panel, Piers Morgan, face the task of choosing just 40 contestants to go through to the live semi finals of the ITV show, which start on Monday night (31.05.10).
