Britain’s Got Talent judges blown away by stunning skipping act

A group of synchronised skippers impressed the Britain’s Got Talent judges this weekend.


In an audition cut from the main show, Jump Revolution blew the judges away with their performance.

Featuring British champion Stacey, the group appeared on More Talent with Stephen Mulhern on ITV2.

They showcased a non-stop routine to Handclap by Fitz and The Tantrums.

David Walliams reacted: “I was completely blown away!”

Alesha Dixon added: “I really, really loved that. It was fantastic.”


Amanda Holden praised: “I just think you have an amazingly sparkly future ahead of you”

“I can see this becoming more popular,” added Simon Cowell as he and the other judges all gave the group a yes.

And it wasn’t just the judges who they impressed.

Ant and Dec named the group as one of their favourites from the entire series.

Ant said before the first episode: “So this act came on and did synchronised skipping, and we’re stood in the wings thinking how we’ve never seen anything like this before.

“We’ve had one person do it, but never a huge crew of them doing it to music. So it shows there are still people out there who are willing to try new things.”

Other contestants this week were Gonzo, a so-called “extreme tambourinist” from Japan who had been inspired by Susan Boyle to audition, and fellow musician Guy First who treated the judges to a rather unique and extraordinary talent.

Despite their wacky performances, both got yeses to sail through to the next round.

12-year-old Kerr James took to the stage to sing Try a Little Tenderness by Otis Redding, wowing the judges with his voice and getting four yeses.

Jonathan Goodwin impressed as he escaped from a straightjacket while on fire while comic Kojo Anim won the golden buzzer from Simon Cowell.


Britain’s Got Talent continues Saturday nights on ITV.

More Talent airs on ITV2 straight after the main show.
