Who won Survivor? Who got booted from Celebrity Apprentice? And WHAT is a dog going to do with half a million pounds (that’s British currency, not his weight)? The winner of Britain’s Got Talent is a dancing dog named Pudsey. He’s a border collie who danced a spectacular little number with his teenage owner, Ashleigh, Butler, to the theme from Mission Impossible. Voters phone in to award Butler and Pudsey the £500,000 ($802,300) first prize, plus the chance to perform in front of the British monarchy at the annual Royal Variety Performance.
They beat a pop-opera duo, synchronized swimmers, and a Welsh boys’ choir to be crowned the 2012 winner on the show that launched the career of Scottish singer Susan Boyle.
