Since our last Britain’s Got Talent blog post Spelbound have gone on to win the competition, proving to the world that Britain really has got talent!
The gymnastics dance troupe from Ashford, Surrey has won the chance to perform in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance later this year, as well as a well-deserved cash prize of £100,000!
Dance duo Twist & Pulse were strong contenders throughout the competition, battled it out to the final two places in the competition. Runners-up Twist & Pulse’s “street-omedy” act, a fusion of street dance and comedy, was not enough to secure them victory on the night. Twist & Pulse had to settle for second place as the public voted in record numbers to help Spelbound claim first place in Britain’s Got Talent. Judge Simon Cowell was not disappointed in the result, saying “the right boys and girls won on the night”. Cowell compared Spelbound’s routine to an Olympic gold medal-winning performance, and one of the most astonishing things he had ever seen on live TV. The Olympic comparisons did not end with Simon Cowell, judge Amanda Holden chipped in, “We are hosting the Olympics Games and I can only think ‘what a brilliant opening act’.”
Spelbound were overwhelmed by their victory and public support, but the work does not stop at victory for them. Spelbound explained their immediate concentration would now be placed on the World Acrobatic Championships, proving their commitment to the sport!
All dance acts this year had been hoping to repeat the success of former winners Diversity, who won the talent show last year, and 2008 winner George Sampson. However, only Spelbound had what it takes to become the 2010 Britain’s Got Talent Champions.
