The hopeful A Britain’s Got Talent takes aim at Simon Cowell during their audition, in scenes that aired on ITV on Saturday night.
Titan the Robot took to the stage, as he sang and performed a comedy routine for Simon and fellow judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.
In a preview clip released by ITV, one of the film’s first scenes delights audiences – while Amanda initially appears to back away from her desk in fear.
Both Amanda and Alesha stood away from their desks, while it was unknown if this was part of the performance or if they were dancing to the songs he was playing.
When Titan turned its attention to Simon, the robot impersonated broadcasting legend David Attenborough as he described the judge.
He said in the clip: “Here we have the less spotted, more majestic Simon Cowell. This creature lives an honest and basic life, and can often be seen riding motorcycles overseas. off the coast of Barbados.
“With a simple thought running through its mind…”
The robot then played Right Said Fred’s I’m Too Sexy, causing the audience to howl with laughter.
Simon sneered, absorbing the joke well, as Amanda nodded to her co-star and laughed, while clapping her hands to the tune.
Alesha did the same, as David continued to laugh beside them – while Titan quickly moved on to another judge to taunt, and it seemed to stop at David.
It comes as his former champion, 2020 winner Jon Courtenay, revealed he will be returning to the series, two years after his big win.
While remaining calm about the details, he explained that he will return once to celebrate the launch of the series.
He told Lorraine host Christine Lampard: “Yeah, that’s great! They called me and said we’d recommend you, so I’m going to open one of the episodes.
“I wrote a song because that’s what I do now, I write my own songs. So I’m opening one of the episodes. And then there’s something else that I don’t think of. we are allowed to talk.
“Nobody told me…so yeah, I’ll be introduced, that’s absolutely adorable, and it’s great to go back.”
Britain’s Got Talent 2022 premieres at 8pm, Saturday on ITV channel.
