Romance And Shock: Watch Same-Sex Filipino Dancing Act Rip Each Other’s Dress Mid Performance
One of the most energetic performances of the BGT season so far came from dancers Ezekiel and Karl. The duo traveled all the way from the Philippines to show off their incredible moves and flashy costumes.
Their electrifying performance had the Britain’s Got Talent crowd going wild, and the judges had plenty of positive feedback. Check out the pair’s jaw-dropping audition in the video below.
Filipino Dancers Ezekiel And Karl Perform On ‘BGT’
Ezekiel and Karl were excited to share that they’d traveled from the Philippines to share their talent with the BGT audience. “I could not be more flattered that you flew all the miles you did to come and enter this show,” Simon Cowell told them.
“We really want to perform in front of the British royal family,” Karl shared when Amanda Holden asked why they came to Britain’s Got Talent.
The performance started slower, as Karl peeled off the long robe he was wearing and Ezekiel revealed a sparkly shirt under his jacket. The routine, set to “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner, then got faster, as Karl spun around to show off a rainbow-colored dress.
The pair proceeded to show off some fast footwork, complete with flips and splits. And of course, the audition wouldn’t be complete without yet another costume change. They had the crowd going wild, clapping along and smiling.
What Did The Judges Think Of Ezekiel And Karl?
The BGT judges gave the dancers a standing ovation. David Walliams called it “a celebration of life and difference.” Alesha Dixon said their technique was “out of this world.” Simon said it was “pure, utter energy from start to finish.” They received four “yes” votes.
Fans online also seemed to love Ezekiel and Karl’s performance. One Twitter user predicted that they would win the entire competition. Another viewer said the pair deserved the Golden Buzzer for their audition.
Auditions for the current season of BGT wrapped up at the end of May, but live shows have been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with semifinals set to air in the fall. So we’ll have to wait a while before we see any more performances from these two dancers.
