WATCH: 'Britain's Got Talent' Act Goes Really Wrong Live On Air

You may or may not have seen shit go down on Britain's Got Talent last night. Well, if you're anything like me you probably think it all goes a bit downhill after the auditions, right?

Anyway, Ben Blaque is a performer who just absolutely loves arrows. So much so, that he invited judge, Alesha Dixon, to come up on stage and shoot a load of them at him.

Unfortunately, it went a little bit wrong. She was supposed to pull one lever at a time, when Ben gave her the signal. However, when she pulled a lever, two arrows were set off at once.

Ben understandably looked quite shell shocked by the incident. I guess if you're facing a few razor sharp arrows and something doesn't go exactly to plan, you'd be forgiven for losing your nerve a little bit.


Luckily, the rest of the act went to plan and he wasn't impaled live on air.

When it was time for the judges to give their comments, Simon said: "I think the fact that it went wrong made it better. I personally would not trust Alesha to pull the handle and fire an arrow at me.

"But in a strange way, by Alesha being an idiot and accidentally releasing two arrows, it made the act better."


Later, Ben explained what he believed happened: "The chord must have got tangled up and that would have caused two arrows to be sent off."

He said that the mistake was "very dangerous."

Sadly, it wasn't enough to get him through to the next round.
