A group of dancing Star Wars STORMTROOPERS have won the fifth and final Golden Buzzer of Britain's Got Talent 2016 from Simon Cowell.

Simon isn't exactly known for backing wacky acts, having previously pressed the Golden Buzzer for young rap duo Bars & Melody and singer Calum Scott.

However, after Alesha Dixon beat him to claiming 100 Voices of Gospel, Simon opted for something a bit more outlandish this year when Boogie Storm took to the stage in stormtrooper costumes.

The anonymous hopefuls kept completely silent as the judges asked the usual pre-audition questions, with Amanda Holden wondering if they worked for the "Dark Lord" sitting next to her.

Realising she wasn't going to get an answer, Amanda wished them good luck - and they begun dancing to some classic pop hits, incorporating the iconic moves from Psy's 'Gangnam Style' and Beyoncé's 'Single Ladies'.


Their performance won a standing ovation - and with encouragement from the audience, Simon decided to hit the Golden Buzzer.

"I don't know who you are, but I literally said if we could find stormtroopers who could dance - seriously, I said that - this show is gonna go to a different league," he told the six-strong group. "My dream has come true, thank you!"

David Walliams, who's usually responsible for the comedy results, added: "No surprise that the real life Darth Vader voted for his troops. It was brilliant, but I do worry that Simon Cowell may have lost his mind!"

"I don't care," Simon replied. "You know what? The dark side has taken over!"

Their place in the live shows secure, Boogie Storm marched out of the theatre without having uttered a single word to the judges.

The result means that all of this year's Golden Buzzer acts have now been chosen. Joining Boogie Storm and 100 Voices of Gospel in the line-up are singers Beau Dermott, Ian and Anne Marshall and Jasmine Elcock.
