Diversity beat Susan Boyle in Britain’s Got Talent 2009 (video)
Street dancers Diversity beat Susan Boyle into second place in a surprise victory in the Britain’s Got Talent final on Saturday.
The energetic dance group, which includes three sets of brothers, took the 100,000-pound ($159,000) prize and will perform for the Royal Variety Show before the queen.
Susan, who chose to sing again the song that first brought her fame, I Dreamed a Dream, was gracious in defeat—saying “the best people won” and wishing them “all the best”.
Following Boyle’s swan song, Piers Morgan said: “I’m not supposed that favor anyone, I should be impartial, but you know what, forget it. That was the greatest performance I’ve seen in Britain’s Got Talent history. You should win this competition. I loved it!” Amanda Holden told the 49-year-old singer, “You sang it so well… You did it girl. You did it for Scotland.”
