● BGT Auditions
Jamie Leahey and Chuck put on an audition skit on stage, and Leahey closed it with a rendition of “Me and My Shadow” by The Rat Pack. In response to David’s comment, “You’ve got an extraordinary not just ventriloquism, but to amuse others,” Alesha referred to the performance as “very slick.”
● BGT Semifinals
When it came time for the Semi-Finals, Jamie Leahey did an altogether different comedy involving Chuck. This time, the comedy centered on the two of them having a disagreement and then getting back together.
This is the only show where you can go from screaming at a rat being touched to singing with a chicken at the same time, and Simon agreed, saying, “You were good on your first audition, but I think you were way better. Tonight.” In order to advance Leahey to the finals instead of another competitor named Junwoo Park, the judges had to resort to the vote of the people.
● BGT Finals
In the Final, Leahey opened the show. Onstage, Jamie Leahey and Chuck appeared out of a giant Chicken Coop with the words “Jamie and Chuck” on top of it before making their way down the coop’s ramp and onto the stage, which is hilarious considering that the dummy of a Chicken they’re performing as is Chuck.
Jeremy Clarkson’s edited recorded speech and an opening and closing song were all part of his act, which also included statements about vegetarianism and a mock round of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” David regarded the act as ‘faultless in every way,’ with Alesha adding, ‘you’ve exceeded yourself from the Semi-Final performance.’ Axel Blake won the competition, with Leahey in second place.
When it came down to the final three, the Rainford kid was up against comic Axel Blake and singer Tom Ball. In the end, it came down to Axel and the 13-year-old, but Axel won and earned a spot in the Royal Variety Show.
The live finale had been opened by ventriloquist Jamie and his puppet Chuck, who performed an amazing show. All of Jamie’s fans were acknowledged, and a special homage was paid to mentor Lewis Devine when Axel won.
“The entire United Kingdom was watching you tonight, and your entire act was flawless; you should be extremely proud of yourself,” Amanda Holden said to Jamie after his performance.
Simon Cowell said: “You have a tremendous gift, you are incredibly nice, and your material – bearing in mind you just had a few days to put it together – was brilliant.
“You deserve to be here, and as we mentioned earlier, anyone can win the show, and you have got a shot.”
According to David Walliams, there was nothing wrong with Jamie’s performance, who instructed the other competitors to “go home now.”
Thirteen-year-old Jamie Leahey is a self-taught ventriloquist. During the first lockdown, his grandmother bought him a monkey puppet, and he started studying ventriloquism. His ultimate objective is to be inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
