“Britain’s Got Talent” Samurai Sword Act

Damn! It’s scary as hell

Britain’s Got Talent: 36-year-old English lecturer Hayashi takes to the stage with his happy, but terrified, helpers Dan and Ben to perform the most dangerous act ever seen on British television.

Britain’s Got Talent  is a British television talent show reality TV competition which started in June 2007 and originated from the Got Talent franchise. The show is broadcast on ITV and its sister show Britain’s Got More Talent is broadcast on ITV2. Anyone of any age with some sort of talent can audition for the show. Acts compete against each other in order to gain the audience support while trying to win the title of “The winner of Britain’s Got Talent”.  Throughout the show, contestants must perform in front of the judges, and each year initial auditions have been held in front of a live audience. Auditions precede live semi-finals, where the final 45 contestants (24 in series 1, 40 in series 2–5) perform nightly for a week in order to impress the British public. Each night, two acts from each semi-final (the act with the most votes and another chosen by the judges from the acts in second and third place) progress to the live final.
