[+captions] Beat-boxer Dave Crowe on Britain’s Got Talent 2008


And the first act is 21-year-old
beatboxer, Dave Crowe. And this one, this one I’ve been
working on a little bit, lately. It’s a little bit naughty but, er,
I really like it. Okay, go on. Could I do it? Took me two years to get the technique. If you got it now, I’d leave! What, that noise? No, that noise is fine. You just, like, pretend to be a woman, and have… imagine a guy’s, like,
stroking your finger across your back, and you’d be like… D’you want me to stroke your back? Go on, then. Ready? No, don’t, don’t have to touch… No, alright, yeah-yeah.
No, don’t, don’t have to touch… Yeah-yeah. And now, all you need to do is
just make this noise: And now go: And that’ll, like, help the technique. Right (!) Go on. Come on, now. It sounds wrong. Yeah, but…
It sounds wrong. It sounds wrong. It soun… it sounds like you’re
really enjoying a poo. What’s your name? Dave Crowe. Call me,
call me ‘Crowe’. That’ll be … Okay, Crowe, what’s your act? Beatboxer, general noise-maker Do you think this is something
the Royal Family would find entertaining? I think they might, they might dig it. Alright.
Definitely. Definitely. Okay, Crowe, when you’re ready. Yeah?
Okay, Crowe, when you’re ready. Okay, Crowe, when you’re ready. Naughty! It’s like the guy out of ‘Police Academy’. Very good! Good one! I think you’re very talented;
I think the act’s all over the place, um, I think you’re unprepared. I do. I do. Look, mate, what Simon Cowell knows about beatboxing
can be written on a postage stamp. I mean, absolutely ridiculous. I’ve had the pleasure, I’ve met I’ve had the pleasure, I’ve met
Prince Charles a few times, right, and whenever we meet
we normally end up … Dropping a beat.
… talking about beatboxing. Yeah. … talking about beatboxing. Yeah. And, er, and I think he really would dig ya. I do. I’m digging you right now. I’m digging you, bro. I just thought it was incredible.
I don’t know how you
make your mouth do that. You’ve definitely got talent,
and this is what this show is all about. (Thank you) Piers, yes or no? Yes, brother. Mr Cowell, your verdict? I’m gonna say yes. Crowe, that’s three yesses. Three yesses. Respect! Very good. Cheers, man. What a reaction. Yeah, it went down really well, like. He’s good. He’s really good. He’s good!
He’s really good. He’s really good. What about Piers? He loved it, like, I th… to be honest with ya,
I think he has a real as soon as I started, y-you know,
I th… to be honest with ya,
I think he has a real urban hip-hop bean inside of him
somewhere that, like, creeps out whenever somebody
does something that he, you know … An urban bean? Right, I’m telling you, he’s got an
urban bean just in there, yeah, and whenever anybody beatboxes, DJs,
graffiti’s, or MCs really well, this bean starts … like that,
and he’s like, “yes!”. I think I need to discuss
this ‘bean’ business with the judges. Now, Dave the beatboxer. Brilliant. Great! Possibly one of the best we’ve had? Yes!
Possibly one of the best we’ve had? Yes. The best, I think. You know, he and I connected. He’s got a message for you. Yeah? He said you’ve got an ur… “Respect”?
He said you’ve got an ur… He said you’ve got an ur… … tch, yeah (!). He’s got an … Yeah, go on.
… tch, yeah (!). He’s got an … … tch, yeah (!). He’s got an … His words were, he said: “Piers,” he goes “he’s got an urban bean.” Yeah-yeah. “That when he sees a beatboxer
or anyone doing graffiti,” Feel it! Like Banksy. … he …
Like Banksy. Like Banksy. … just comes alive. Yeah-yeah. Totally. I dig it, man. He just …
Yeah-yeah. Totally. I dig it, man. Yeah-yeah. Totally. I dig it, man. I dig it. He doesn’t dig it. Actually, for once I agree with Piers.

  1. how do you not know who "that guy is" he's simon cowell he's from american idol he's pretty much the main judge of every competition he's also the most known judge of all competitions as far as singing goe's

  2. Sick of watching Simon to reject people without even listen to them or watch their talent … fucking son of a bitch -.-

  3. I do think Crowe does have a slight attitude problem, but I suppose that's just his personality. Either way he is quite talented, but like Simon said he should have prepared a full tune like on his later youtube videos. I guess this was his earlier "un refined" work, his audition felt a bit random to me.

  4. la verdad este artista no necesitaria de ninguna mierda de programa que lo lanzara a ningun sitio. este tio es el mejor y punto hubiese triunfado igual aunke no asistiera a este programa en el cual no lo valoran como se merece desde mi punto de vista. todos mis respetos desde galicia man y a seguir sorprendiendonos 😀

  5. He's done a lot better in the streets of London than he has in this. Not his best performance by a long shot, he is MUCH better than this.

  6. Slow down the beat boxer's practice piece for the host, and listen without watching the video. You'd almost swear the guy was beat boxing and pleasuring a woman at the same time lol.
