Britain's Got Talent 2016: Another Kind of Blue's animated dance routine stuns the judges

Another Kind of Blue

Dance group Another Kind of Blue gave Britain's Got Talent winners Attraction a run for their money on the latest episode of the talent contest with a breathtaking performance involving animations.

The idea was conceived by Dutchman David Middendorp, who first took it to America's Got Talent two years ago.

His group has several members, with four joining him on the ITV show - dancers Nino and Violet, and his behind-the-scenes helpers Davide and Madeline.

"We’re still a very new group, and these are people that I’ve picked up over the years that I like to work with," David explained.

"In 2014 I auditioned for America’s Got Talent, it was a very nice adventure. It would be an honour to perform for the Royal Family. It will be great to present this to the audience, I think we’re ready."

While Attraction tell stories by using their bodies to create shadows, Another Kind of Blue's dancers interact with sophisticated animations that are projected on to both the floor and backdrop of the stage.

Nino and Violet's performance tonight saw them light a fire and draw the curtains in a room, before the walls opened up and they began freefalling through the sky.

It captivated the room, earning them a standing ovation and unanimous praise from the judges.

Simon Cowell described it as "absolutely stunning", saying: "There are moments where you actually believe you're in the air with them. I've never seen anything like it in my life."

"That was so beautiful to watch," added Alesha Dixon. "Really imaginative. I feel like this is the kind of act with no limits to where you can go or what you can do visually."

David and his team left the stage jubilant with four yesses and a place on the shortlist, as Simon gushed: "That was a very special surprise."

Britain's Got Talent 2016 continues next Saturday at 8.00pm on ITV.
