When three glamorously dressed women stepped onto the stage in Britain’s Got Talent, you could see Simon Cowell’s eyes light up with lust. They wore tight, short, sequined dresses and stood in high heels. And as he examined their bodies with his eyes, the women stood tall and confident and were ready to show Cowell their talent. They were not going to let him intimidate them into a lackluster performance. However, as the music starts, the three women shock the judges when they transform before their eyes.
The group of three singers came from the Philippines and performed under the group name of Miss Tres. They told Simon that their goal in life was to become the next girl group sensation. Because Simon Cowell is known for his passion for boy bands, Miss Tres hoped he’d see their potential and help push them into stardom.
“We would like to be like Destiny’s Child. Girl power!”
Cowell could not deny that Miss Tres looked the part. He found them very pretty. But could they sing? Did they have good voices? That’s what he was eager to discover about this singing group from the Philippines.
Before they start their performance, the group chats with the judges and tells them all about their high aspirations. And they described how they were willing to do what it took to get to the top of the charts and the hearts of a worldwide audience.
After the introductions are complete, Cowell wishes them luck, and they pick up their microphones and prepare to perform for the strict judges.
“Well, good luck,” Cowell says with a smirk. “Hope it goes well.”
Suddenly, the song “Sex Bomb” blasts from the speakers. The song has a quick beat, and the audience instantly feeds off the group’s strong feminine energy. But as they open their mouth to sing, everyone – but most especially Simon Cowell – cannot believe the way their voices sound.
The performance delivered a twist they could never have predicted. Miss Tres was not comprised of what people had expected. They were a transgender women group.
But as the immediate shock wears off, the judges get into the performance. They enjoy the sound of their voices and their stage presence. And one judge even rises from his chair to dance around the judge’s booth. He’s into Miss Tres. And so is Cowell.
Although this was not a traditional audition for Britain’s Got Talent, Cowell loved that they were not what he had expected. Because he has seen “everything,” he is always excited when he gets surprised or when his assumptions are proven very, very wrong.
If you enjoy a good performance, this audition is a must see. You’re going to love seeing Cowell’s reaction as well as the other judges when they realize Miss Tres is not the group they expected to step on their stage. The performers in the group are between the ages of thirty-five and forty-three. But they seem much younger. Just take a minute and watch this 2-minute talent audition.
