The Britain’s Got Talent judges were blown away by X1X Crew from India right away. Their inspirational story and tremendous talent make them a force to be reckoned with. This 22 member dance group auditioned for season 14 with an action-packed dance routine, unlike anything we have ever seen before. Watch their spellbinding audition below.
X1X Crew Brought Amazing Stunts To ‘Britain’s Got Talent’
X1X Crew came to Britain’s Got Talent with a mission to better the lives of each of their young group members. They want to improve their living conditions and education living in Mumbai. Their youngest group member was just 14 years old at the time of the audition. X1X Crew describes their relationship as a family with a unique style of dance. The group takes inspiration from their Indian culture and mixes it with hip hop. They practice every day for 10-12 hours but do not have a proper place to practice so they settle for parking lots or the streets. For a lot of them, dancing together is always the best and most peaceful part of their day.
During their show-stopping audition, X1X Crew infamously stacked seven group members on top of each other to create a tower. They then proceeded to fall down and be caught by their other crew members. It was the most amazing stunt that had David Walliams completely in awe. Simon Cowell was all smiles as all of the judges gave the group a standing ovation. “I have to say that was exceptional,” Simon said. He mimicked all of the members of the audience that had their jaws dropping while watching the routine. David called the performance “electric.” Amanda Holden even said that they rivaled season three winners Diversity, the dance crew that raised the bar. Simon said that X1X Crew would now be the group they compare everyone else to. They received four yes’s and have a chance of performing in the live shows.
The Groups Instagram Account Was Just Hacked
As X1X Crew awaits the Britain’s Got Talent live shows which have since been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, they are trying to regrow their social media following. In May, their Instagram account with over 62.6 million followers was hacked, forcing them to start fresh. A lot of their fans have been following them since their appearance on India’s Got Talent in 2015 where they were finalists. They also appeared on season two of the show Dance Plus in 2016.
