Dance crews always step up their game on ‘Got Talent’ shows and bring us things we have never seen before. BSD Crew brought all 39 of their members to Ireland’s Got Talent ranging from ages nine to 17. Check out their season two audition below that will leave your jaw on the floor.
BSD Crew danced to “Level Up” by Ciara. Their sassy routine was full of hard-hitting moves and contagious energy. Right from the start, all of the judges were dancing along and could not believe the caliber of talent up on the stage. Mid-way through the performance, tiny dancers came out in black sweatshirts and danced along with the rest of the group. It was an unexpected twist to an already stellar performance.
BSD Crew got a standing ovation from the judges and the audience. “You kids just ripped the roof off of this place,” judge Michelle Visage said. She playfully asked if they also had a crew for older people to join and called the performance “remarkable.” Louis Walsh called BSD Crew “the Irish Diversity,” referencing the popular dance group that won season three of ‘BGT.’ The group was ecstatic to receive this compliment.
Judge Jason Byrne was completely blown away by the entire performance. “I think you’re probably going to be the strongest dance group in the whole series,” he said. The crowd began chanting to give the group the Golden Buzzer. Jason hit the Golden Buzzer and BSD Crew jumped for joy on the stage. This sent them straight to the Live Shows. They performed another jam-packed routine to Demi Lovato’s “Confident.” At the end of the performance, the song switched to “Level Up” and they once again reprised the dance that got them the Golden Buzzer at the auditions. BSD Crew was named the winners of Ireland’s Got Talent.
This season was particularly unique because the runner up was also another dance crew called Fly Youth. The winners of the first season of the show were a dance group called RDC. Needless to say, dance groups really thrived on the show which was canceled after two seasons.
After winning Ireland’s Got Talent, the group continues to dance at Backstreet Dance Studios in Dublin. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, dance classes in Ireland were forced to shut down as a safety measure.
They also put out a video on Instagram featuring all of their dancers at home making the most of their quarantine situations. “We made this very special project to bring awareness to just how many people are affected by our dance studios being closed” the captions says.
BSD Crew has also made it a mission to say how dancing helps people improve their mental health and that it is essential that they are able to continue dancing amid the pandemic. For now, you can check out their Instagram to see throwback performances and time in the studio.
