Britain’s Got Talent: Diversity’s in the final (video)


Dance group Diversity have made it through to the final of Britain’s Got Talent after winning the panel’s vote over 10-year-old Natalie Okri.

Piers Morgan voted for the 11-piece dance troupe from Essex—who started the show with a bang—while Amanda Holden decided to put Natalie through, leaving Simon Cowell with the casting vote.

“This is a great position to put me in,” Simon said before he voted for Diversity.

Natalie – who earlier had performed the song Superstar – looked visibly upset as she left the stage.

Consisting of three sets of brothers and four friends, Diversity was described as “fantastic” by Piers. Amanda agreed, saying: “It was intelligent, innovative and it tells a story. I can’t take my eyes off you.”

Simon, who thought he was back on American Idol, was also pleased: “It was absolutely fantastic. I would say that anyone watching this show, I think is very important to pick up the phone and vote for you.”

And oh, Susan Boyle also made it through to the final. But that was expected.
