Simon Cowell’s son Eric is in for a bear-y good birthday (sorry), if his dad gets his way.
During Britain’s Got Talent last night (May 24), which saw Richard Jones and Boogie Storm win final places, Simon admitted that he wanted to hire the dancing bear from Vadik & The Bear’s act for Eric’s third birthday.
Vadik & The Bear - or a group of bears and a penguin, to be precise - performed a dance medley on last night’s semi-final, earning a standing ovation from Simon but sadly, a buzzer from Alesha Dixon.
Despite not receiving unanimous approval from the judges, Vadik still got a glowing review from someone who is normally the harshest of critics, with Simon saying: “Incredible. How do you train them to do that? There’s six of them!
“In eight months time Eric is going to have a third birthday party and you are booked.”
He added: “There’s no other show on earth where six real polar bears are dancing to Ice Ice Baby.”
The show faced more fix claims from viewers last night, after Simon’s Golden Buzzer act, Boogie Storm, beat dancer Jack Higgins to a place in the grand final.
