Greig Stewart, a software developer and self-confessed super-nerd managed to wrangle his way into the semi-finals of UK reality talent show, Britain’s Got Talent.
He did this by dazzling the judges and the audience with a rendition of the infamous Tetris theme tune played on none-other than a laser harp. Apparently, he composed it himself using a Game Boy and NES. Wow, it really doesn’t get much nerdier than this!
During his performance, judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon looked on a little bemused, with Cowell appearing the most unimpressed. Funny man David Walliams of Little Britain fame however immediately got into the swing of things. He leapt to his feet, standing behind the unenthused Cowell and began doing his own Tetris-inspired dance, to the great amusement of the crowd.
Somewhat surprisingly however, all four of the judges gave Stewart the ‘yes’ vote that saw him proceed into the semi-finals of the contest, perhaps convinced by the crowd’s animated reaction to his performance.
Intriguing and amusing as Stewart’s performance may have been, (we all love Tetris, right) we’ll just have to wait and see if his incandescent block-busting Tetris tune will be good enough to get him through the next round of the competition.
