Britain’s Got Talent fix row as viewers slam show for 'recycling talent' | The Sun
BRITAIN'S Got Talent has been hit by fan fix claims after viewers accused the programme of "recycling" talent.
The ITV show returned this weekend with a collection of global acts and there was even a golden buzzer.
But some viewers weren't happy to see an act that has appeared on another Got Talent show.
One half of Japanese yo-yo whizzes Toy Toy Toy, who performed amazing tricks with the classic toys, has a history with Simon Cowell.
Shu Takada, 26, reached the semi-finals of America's Got Talent last year and had Simon applauding on his feet.
The talent became a yo-yo world champion aged just 15 and has made TV appearances on Blue Peter and This Morning in the UK.

Appearing on last night's BGT, Shu brought up his time in the US, asking: "Simon, do you remember me?"
Shu and friend Naoto were sent through to the next round after their jaw-dropping routine to music.
Viewers were divided though, with one writing on Twitter: "So we get Japanese people who were on America’s Got Talent now on #bgt talk about recycling talent."
Another posted: "Japan’s Got Talent. Uganda’s Got Talent? America’s Got Talent? Japan’s Got Talent (again)? Finland’s Got Talent?"

There was more uproar last night when American performer Thomas Vu set himself on fire while solving a Rubik's Cube.
Before his performance, the 35-year-old, who previously appeared on America's Got Talent, said: “I want to show the world that the Rubik’s Cube can be very interesting.”
