"Now that's some Serious talent"
« on: December 20, 2008, 06:05:34 am »


"WILLIAM Campbell has certainly got talent - and the 15-year-old Marist student is set to prove it to the nation.
After a passing comment from his grandmother prompted him to audition for the upcoming third series of the Channel Seven talent show Australia's Got Talent, the skilled diabolo juggler and Slipstream Circus performer decided to give it a shot.

Attending the Hobart auditions recently, the young performer wowed show producers with his routine, which involved juggling not one but three diabolos on a piece of string.

"Everything in the audition ran smoothly and there was a very positive response from everyone in the room," William said.

Receiving a call-back from a show producer the following week, William was informed he had been selected to travel to Melbourne in mid January to perform for show judges, including the infamous Red Symons.

"It's pretty exciting because I didn't expect to make it to the next level," he said.

Slipstream Circus trainer Andy Trudgian said William's skills were well beyond his years.

"His is an exceptionally talents kid, not just in the skills he possesses but also in his performance ability," Mr Trudgian said.

The series will air in mid 2009."

(watch out for Red, he'll be like, "neee it was good neee but neee i could have done better"
and if he says he could have done better, heaven help him!
I WILL PERSONALLY TIE BLADES TO MY DIABOLOS AND VERTAX THE HELL OUT OF HIM!)

no but really congradulations, show them what diaboloing is all about!
From what i know there have been 2 diaboloists who performed as a team, and they made it to the 2nd round i think, im not sure.
Hopefully you'll claim the title, you already have my vote!

(P.S say hi to Ricki Lee for me :D)

Congrats, jugglers never usually do too well in these things so it's nice to see people get through to the next stage every once in a while. Good luck!

You'll probably get on tv but you'll get bumped off pretty soon after and some crappy singer will win.

These shows have nothing to do with talent.

Well done on getting this far though!

yeah beni you are right, the show in germany sucked... there were some really talented people, but a mouth organ player (i hope thats right xD) won, he wasn't bad, but he wasn't really a talent.

Well, he DID say it was stupidity, but...

OH MY GOD!  Sorry Will.  Can't miss out commenting on your AWESOMENESSSSS over some guy with a scorpion down his pants.  Making it on the newspaper AND getting past to the second round CERTAINLY is awesome down your pants.  This guy, however, has got something else...

True words ::). If you´re actually any good don´t expect too much. And don´t get dissapointed if someone crappy wins/goes further. Nothing about those shows are what it seems.

Win or not, I do hope you can get some good publicity from it though. Rooting for you to win it ofcourse :)

Haha that´s not what I meant but surely it wouldn´t hurt :P. In our version everything was paid for by Sony BMG and so you had to by contract release a record/DVD with them if you won. Can you imagine Sony BMG releasing a technical juggling-DVD :-D? 6 of 8 acts in the final were music btw and a little singing girl won.

The company that did the filming for Sony were the agents of three of the finalists it was revealed after so those three got longer airtime and did not have to follow timeguidelines etc like the others. I can go on and on about the backstage-"cheating" but already wrote a long post about it someplace else and even that didn´t cover half of it.

So yeah, a bribe...probably won´t help. Make sure you don´t drop at all if possible, show personality (which you are good at Will, seen a vid from an act) and hope the public likes you.
