Britain’s Got Talent Alesha Dixon was ‘completely insulted’ by a comedy song that took a cheeky swipe at her solo career.
Australian comedian Sheila Simmonds took to the stage for Alesha and her fellow judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams and Amanda Holden.
The act was made up of a jokey rap about why she wanted to take a chance on BGT and had a chorus that went ‘Sheila Simmonds, busy lady’.
She also name-checked various Britain’s Got Talent winners including Paul Potts, Susan Boyle, Diversity and Ashley and Pudsey.
After calling out Amanda for ‘crying a lot’ and suggesting David Walliams wears ‘a pink rubber vest’ under his suit, she turned to Alesha.
She said: ‘I love Alesha, she was in Mis-Teeq, she had a solo career that lasted a week.’
Alesha put her hands on her hips and shouted: ‘No it did not!’.
But it was all good between them as Alesha said she loved Sheila’s act.
Giving feedback the judge said: ‘Well even though you completely insulted me, I still absolutely love you. It was just a laugh.’
Amanda added: ‘Actually that was very catchy. I think we’ll all be going home singing that tonight.’
Simon, who watched the entire audition completely stony-faced, gave the withering comment: ‘I didn’t like this very much so I’m gonna say no.’
But David had the final say and declared: ‘Who cares what he thinks because you’ve got three big fat yeses.’
Shelia looked over the moon to be going through to the next round despite the digs at the judging panel.
Also on the show Britain’s Got Talent icon Susan Boyle came back to the stage that made her name, 10 years on from her original audition.
Singing I Dreamed A Dream, she performed for the judges and got a standing ovation from the crowd.
Simon joined her on stage and gave her a hug, saying: ‘Still got the magic, Susan, haven’t you?’
He later gave his golden buzzer to comedian Kojo Anim, a friend of Alesha’s.
Britain’s Got Talent airs Saturdays on ITV.
