A comedian who uses a synthesized voice to speak has won “Britain’s Got Talent”.
Lee Ridley, who lost his ability to speak due to cerebral palsy, won over the heart and laughs of the British reality competition audience to claim the show’s £250,000 prize and the opportunity to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.
The 37-year-old known as “Lost Voice Guy”, upon becoming the first comedian every to win the show, said, “I have been blown away by the support of the judges and the general public. I’m very excited to perform in front of the Queen.”
“I’ve loved her since she sang Bohemian Rhapsody,” he joked.
During the finale, Ridley had a bandage over his nose due to a fall he sustained at the semi-finals.
The season’s runner-up was another comedian, Robert White, a man with Asperger’s syndrome who set his comedy to song.
