Britain’s Got Talent Winner 2020 Jon Courtenay comes to Oxfordshire

The winner of 2020’s Britain’s Got Talent Winner Jon Courtenay brings his “what’s it all about” 2021 UK tour to The Mill Theatre, Banbury on Saturday 2nd October. The entertainer who recently beat skin cancer brings his unique brand of singing and comedy to the stage in his tour.

“WONDERFUL…YOU ARE SOMEONE WHO HAS WORKED HARD FOR YEARS AND NEEDS A BREAK AND I’M SURE YOU WILL GET A HUGE REACTION FROM THIS, I PROMISE YOU.” 

Simon Cowell

Following his enormous success as the first Golden Buzzer act ever to win Britain’s Got Talent, Jon Courtenay is delighted to announce that he will be setting out on his debut tour of the UK in 2021.

“ONE OF THE BEST GOLDEN BUZZERS WE’VE EVER HAD ON THE SHOW.” 

Amanda Holden

Long before triumphing in the 2020 final, Jon was a powerhouse live performer with decades of experience touring the world. Become part of Jon’s journey of a lifetime where you will roar with laughter, maybe shed a few tears and definitely be inspired by his music and the hilarious tales of his family, relationships and life on tour. With a soundtrack including all his Britain’s Got Talent songs and music spanning the classics to rock n roll, Jon’s side-splitting show will leave you with a happy heart and a huge smile on your face.

This will definitely be a rip-roaring night of music and comedy that you’ll never forget!

“IT’S FUNNY, IT’S TOUCHING, IT’S UNIQUE TO YOU…THAT WAS UNBELIEVABLE.” 

David Walliams

Jon Courtenay originally hails from Ipswich but now lives in Mossley, Greater Manchester with his wife Emma and two sons Nathan and Alfie. He started his stage career as a comedy magician but gradually the magic made way for the piano. Even before he won Britain’s Got Talent, Jon was already a powerhouse live performer with decades of experience touring the world. He is also one of the rare British performers to be asked time and time again to perform in America. His originality and remarkable stage presence have led to hugely successful shows in the corporate market as well as on all the major luxury cruise lines.

Although Jon’s show is continually evolving, his sense of humour remains the same and he has now created a truly original experience for every audience. 

“MAGICAL…YOU NAILED IT MY FRIEND. YOU TICKED EVERY SINGLE BOX.” 

Alesha Dixon

Britain’s Got Talent 2020

The 14th Series of Britain’s got talent was presented as usual by Ant and Dec, with judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams and guest judge Ashley Banjo from dance group Diversity (who won BGT series 3). Based around restrictions in the UK, auditions were filmed in January/February and aired in April/May 2020, and then the remaining episodes were shown on ITV from August to October with a virtual audience and social distancing judges.

Simon Cowell missed the semi-finals and final due to recovering from surgery from a back injury, so Ashley Banjo stepped in with Amanda Holden being the leading judge stand-in. The semi-finals had to be pre-recorded, which changed the voting format.

Forty acts made it to the five semi-finals, including the golden buzzer winners:

  • Fayth Ifil (singer)
  • Honey & Sammy (singers)
  • Jon Courtney (comic singer & pianist)
  • Nabil Abdulrashid (comedian)
  • Sign Along with Us (sign language choir)

The final consisted of 10 acts won by Jon Courtney based on public votes, with Sign Along with Us second, and comedian Steve Royal 3rd.

  1. Jon Courtney
  2. Sign Along with Us
  3. Steve Royal (Comedian)

Other finalists were:

  • Aaron and Jasmine (Dance)
  • Aidan McCann (Magic)
  • Damian O’Brien (Magic)
  • James & Dylan Piper (Magic)
  • Jasper Cherry (Magic)
  • Magical Bones (Magic)
  • Nabil Abdulrashid (Comedian)
