Twist And Pulse Brought Street Mixed With Comedy To ‘BGT’
The pair wore matching red and blue outfits during their ‘BGT’ audition and it was clear that they had a strong bond between them. The besties were ready to show their stuff on stage and they did not disappoint. They danced to a variety of tempos, got very cheeky and even threw in some unexpected pelvis thrusts. It came as no surprise when they received a standing ovation from the judges and the audience.
“You are two people I’m going to remember for all the right reasons,” Simon Cowell said. He also agreed that there was room for improvement and was excited to see what they would do next after making it to the Semi-Finals. They made it all the way to the Finals where they jam-packed another dance performance in a mix of street and comedy. They finished the fourth season of ‘BGT’ in second place behind winners Spelbound.
The Dance Duo Came Back To Compete And Earned A Golden Buzzer
Twist and Pulse returned to television to compete on the first season of ‘BGT: Champions.’ They received Alesha Dixon’s Golden Buzzer and it was clear that they were a huge fan-favorite of the competition. Before the show even aired on television, it was leaked that they were declared the winners after they had gone outside of the arena to show off their trophy. There were questions about whether or not the show would be re-shot as many fans had been waiting for it to air on television and sad to have it spoiled.
