Last night I watched the grand finale of Britain’s Got Talent, the ITV successor to the old format like “New Faces”. 10 acts were competing for the prize from the bizarre “Stavros Flatly”, through the dubious “2 Grand”, to real talent like Julian Smith on his Saxophone, Susan Boyle, and a variety of dance acts.
Susan Boyle has undoubtedly received the most coverage and hype, probably because her eventual performance was so unexpected from such an unkempt initial appearance. However, dance acts like “Flawless” were simply amazing in the heats and my earlier article about the show tipped them as serious contenders.
I didn’t see all of the heats and semi-finals and therefore a few of the acts last night were new to me. However, one act stood out as quite brilliant and that was the dance group “Diversity”. Their choreography was imaginative and their execution was perfect. I felt that they should win and that Julian Smith and Susan Boyle would be runners up. Unusually for me in shows like this, I was right!
Now they will be performing in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance and it will be a better show for their presence.
Watch their performance below and see what you think.
