DJ Talent (real name Anthony Ghosh) (born 1978) from Peterborough Cambridgeshire is a part-time DJ most widely known for his appearance as a semi-finalist on forth series of the ITV television show Britain's Got Talent. He is noted for the excessive amount of bling that he wears, which includes several gold chains and rings (one infused with a blue stone), and a full set of gold teeth costing £7000 in total. He first drew press attention in 2006 after being a repeated victim of armed muggings.[1][2]

Prior to his appearance on Britain's Got Talent, he has appeared on TV programmes including Homemade on T4 where he appeared with celebrity blogger and TV presenter Mark Boardman, The Jeremy Kyle Show, Vanessa's Real Lives, Ann Widdecombe Versus The Diet Industry [3] and The Friday Night Project where he performed a rap for guest host Kanye West, as well as appearing on "Best Guest Week" on the Scott Mills Show for Radio 1. He is currently appearing in the marketing campaign for UK Bingo website, BOGOF Bingo.[4]

Personal life

Anthony Ghosh / DJ Talent lives in south east London with his Indian-born father Sujit 69, and his British mother Patricia, 59. He is based and lives in Eastbourne East Sussex.[5]

In 2005, he appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show with his mother, who was questioning his respect for women and his lifestyle as a DJ.[6] He was ridiculed as he bragged about his apparent fame and was mocked by numerous members of the studio audience.

In late 2008, as a direct result of the credit crunch and its associated economic downturn, Talent attempted to raise cash by selling off his 28 gold teeth for £14,000, although ultimately this was never seen through.[7][8] DJ Talent also goes under alias production names Cyber Headz Crew/ MR T.

Britain's Got Talent

His act as part of Britain's Got Talent for the auditions stage solely consisted of a one verse rap. The lyrics are as follows:

I say Britain
You say Talent
Britain's got talent!
It's the DJ Talent!

Despite apparent criticism, and receiving four buzzes from the judging panel, albeit one operated incorrectly after Kelly Brook pressed Piers Morgan's buzzer (although she claimed that it was not DJ Talent, but Piers's dancing), Talent made it past the opening stage to the semi-finals. After performing and being put through, Talent proceeded to invite judge Kelly Brook out to dinner, which was accepted on her behalf by Simon Cowell.

During his semi-final performance, Talent created variations on his original chorus. This involved using the original chorus, but replacing "Britain" in line one, with "Simon", "Piers" and "Amanda", and replacing "talent" in line two with "Cowell", "Morgan" and "Holden" respectively.[9]
