What is it with Britain's Got Talent?

For all the fuss about "American Idol", which I have never watched, this British version seems to create amazing YouTube buzz. First Susan Boyle. And now more breakdowns. Hollie Steel, ten years old, who scintillated bouncing around the stage in her audition singing "I Could Have Danced All Night" cracks under pressure on the show in her first semi-final attempt:

The judges offer her another try:

No bawling, but I thought the singing pretty wobbly and inaccurate, much like most of Susan Boyle's "Memory".
But what a country for drama queens! (Though it seems "American Idol" has one this year too.)
UPDATE: The "dead posh" comment is SO British.
