A CONTESTANT on Britain's Got Talent has said that the reason he crashed out of the semi-finals is because people were worried his music would not be to the Queen's taste.
DJ Talent, real name Anthony Ghosh, from Beckenham, failed to make it through to this Saturday's (30) final of the ITV talent show after performing his 'I say Talent' act in a gold 'bling' suit accompanied by bikini clad women.
But Ghosh, 30, who lives with his mum Pat and dad Surjit, said that he wasn't surprised when he did not make it through for a chance to perform at the Variety Performance.
He said: "The public may have thought that I couldn't go through as they couldn't see the queen liking my kind of music.
"I reckon she likes classical music or opera. As a musician I respect all kinds of music but my music is my thing.
"Performing for the queen would have been fantastic but being on Britain's Got Talent and performing in front of millions, it gives you lots of opportunities and opens a lot of doors."
Since the semi-final, DJ Talent has appeared on Radio One's Breakfast Show and he and his family have been interviewed on GMTV and This Morning.
On the live semi-final, Simon Cowell criticised his performance as being a "musical nightmare" but fellow judge Piers Morgan said: "We are both massively misunderstood. Because what you are doing single-handedly in your gold bling outfit is getting this country back on its feet."
Morgan then offered to manage him alongside co-judge Amanda Holden .
Mr Ghosh said: "I like Simon Cowell and I won't say anything bad about him, he is the professional at the end of the day.
"I can take what he says on the chin, he has got a point.
"But I am hoping that Piers Morgan, will be in contact with me and will be my manager.
