BGT’s Nabil Abdulrashid makes provocative statement as fans say he was ‘robbed’ in final


Nabil Abdulrashid was hailed as a ‘breath of fresh air’ and the best comedian to star on Britain’s Got Talent for years last night – despite the funny guy losing top prize in Saturday night’s final.Her unapologetic routine addressed a range of topical issues such as the racism, politics and Ofcom complaints that plagued the ITV talent show this year.

The comedian also didn’t hesitate to dig into Alesha Dixon’s house, claiming he was the first black man she had given her golden buzzer to in years.

But despite Nabil’s storm of gags with studio judges and fans on Twitter, the funnyman failed to even make it into the top three in viewers’ votes.

The coveted £ 250,000 fund and the chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance went to another comedian – Jon Courtenay, who wowed viewers with his witty and uplifting musical recap of the events of the year.

Her provocative performance was hailed as refreshing and honest by fans on Twitter

Nabil fans were outraged by the result on Twitter – noting that even Nabil looked annoyed that he missed the shortlist.

“Nabil was robbed,” cried an enraged spectator.

Another said: “Nabil didn’t win BGT tonight. Honestly, one of the funniest and most refreshing comedians out there. These subjects must be treated and discussed, they must not be simply excluded. Nabil I wish you the best for your career and you are amazing. “

Judges gave Nabil a standing ovation after chuckling in his routine

Another praised the amateur comedian: “Nabil is the one act I would definitely pay to see. That’s all I’m saying. He was just awesome. ”

While a disappointed fourth fan called the final “boring” and said Nabi should have at least made the last three of the talent show.

“I didn’t enjoy the show to be honest. Too many wizards don’t get me wrong they were all brilliant but after the third I got bored with all of them. I thought Nabil should have won, I don’t know why he I didn’t even make the 3 finals, well I do but posting it wouldn’t be PC, ”they said.

Not everyone was impressed with some of Nabil’s comments, however.

His joke that British Prime Minister Winston Churchill was black was deemed “offensive” and “uncomfortable” by some.

Amid the fury, Nabil shrugged off losing the award and assured fans it wasn’t the last time they would see him.

Nabil thanked fans for their support and said it wouldn’t be the last time they saw him

Comic singer Jon Courtenay was named the winner on Saturday night

“Thanks for all the support guys. I didn’t get the “W” today but don’t worry… the marathon continues. I love you all #teamnabil#nabilarmy I have come to make a point and I think so, ”he said.

Viewers voted 47-year-old comedian Jon Courtenay as the winner for 2020.

Jon, who was Ant and Dec’s golden choice of buzzer at the auditions, wowed viewers with his routine that praised the nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Signature choir Sign Along With Us took second, while variety performer Steve Royle finished third.
