What happened to the Witch in BGT?
In their audition, they presented a bag of apples to the Judges. David and Alesha were asked to take an apple and bite into it, both were good apples. Amanda was then given two apples, with Simon choosing which one she should eat. The Witch then rhetorically questioned ‘Do you know why they say beauty is only skin deep?’, before going on to state ‘because we’re all rotten to the core’ before going on to crush the apple that Amanda did not eat, revealing it to be filled with maggots. The Witch then left the bag of apples on the Judges Desk before walking back onto the stage and seemingly disappearing. Alesha commented ‘I thought the act was actually brilliant’, with David going on to describe the act as ‘stunning’. Following the performance, The Witch’s face began to briefly flicker on Simon’s buzzer above the stage.
In the Semi Finals, The Witch had another member of their Coven appear and perform upon their behalf. This secondary Witch began their performance by remarking ‘In this whole wide world, the only thing you need to be afraid of is me. Because I have the power to conjure your deepest darkest fears you see’. This secondary Witch tasked Amanda with removing a premonition from within a box which stated it would provide a ‘look into the future of choices made, but which will you choose’. The secondary Witch then tasked every judge with removing a fear from a bag, with David’s fear being TapeWorm, Alesha’s fear being Earwig, Simon’s fear being Maggots and Amanda’s fear being Rodents. This secondary Witch then tasked Amanda with once again reaching into the box, which now contained a Rat. This prompted both Amanda & Alesha to temporarily leave the Judges Desk as this secondary Witch questioned ‘What’s the matter Amanda, rat got your tongue?’, before this secondary Witch was lowered down beneath the stage and seemingly disappeared.
