Britain’s Got More Talent host Stephen Mulhern has supported Amanda Holden's comments to Abyss on Saturday night’s show. The group disagreed when Amanda failed to put them through, saying they weren’t as good as 2009 winners Diversity, who beat Susan Boyle in the final.
After their performance during the weekend's show, Amanda told them: “Abyss, I thought you were good, I thought there were some good moves in there. I don’t think that you are as good as that standard that’s already been set on this show. I cannot help but have to compare you to Diversity, sorry.”
However one dancer hit out, telling the West End star: “Diversity was two years ago, you’ve got to look for the younger generation. You cannot compare us to them.
Standing her ground Amanda said: “I don’t think that today you did step up.” before giving them a no.
Thanks to Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff the boys got through, but today Stephen Mulhern agreed with Amanda's comments that the boys were as good as previous groups.
"Is it fair to compare the dance acts with Diversity? I do think it’s fair and I agree with Amanda," Stephen told This Morning. "Diversity have been our winners and you’ve got to aim for something. For any dance act to claim ‘you can’t compare us,’ well that will always happen.
"They started arguing back and saying ‘you can’t do that’, well they’re the judges and actually they can."
