'Britain's Got Talent' judge Michael McIntyre believes a child will win this season of the show and says singers are his preferred act
Michael McIntyre has tipped a child to win 'Britain's Got Talent'.
The comedian and actor David Hasselhoff have joined Amanda Holden on the judging panel of the ITV1 show - replacing Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan - and out of all the auditionees so far, Michael has been most impressed with the kids.
He said: "I think a kid will win. There are three acts who are 11, 12 or 13 and they're amazing, but that's all I'll say. It's tricky judging younger kids. You have to be sensitive because they don't need to learn harsh lessons yet. My favourite was a young girl in Liverpool but that was just me. I like singers best - the roof raising voices from young people."
Michael also admitted he has broken down in tears a few times and says he can't help getting "emotionally carried away".
He told Now magazine: "I'm not a crier but I keep getting texts that there are tears in the edit. You do get emotionally carried away by stories, like a boy who was being bullied and a girl with a stutter."
