Got To Dance 2013 results: Lukas McFarlane, Tom through to the final

Got To Dance 2013 - Lukas McFarlane

Lukas McFarlane and Tom Hughes-Lloyd have become the first two acts to be voted through to the final of Sky1 talent show Got To Dance 2013.

The pair were chosen by the public after facing four other hopefuls - Molly and Vitaly, Collective Ent, Dance For Joy and Notorious - in tonight's first live semi-final.

Both recieved three gold stars from the panel. Tom, a 14-year-old popper from South Wales, was the first of the line-up to perform and impressed with his self-taught skills.

"You're just showing there's a total different way to be a professional dancer," commented Aston Merrygold, with Kimberly Wyatt saying: "We've been calling this the series of excellence and you're the perfect example of why."

A 'proud' Ashley Banjo suggested that Tom's transition from his bedroom to the stage 'shouldn't be possible', adding: "You've been a student and you've been your own teacher, ironed out all your own mistakes and problems and refined your skills to the point where you're better than most adults."

Later, 19-year-old contemporary dancer Lukas - who moved to the UK from Canada to chase his dance dream - blew everyone away with a stunning routine that had the judges and the audience on their feet.

Kimberly empathaised with his position, gushing: "You're such an honest performer, you're so technically perfect. It was just incredible.

"I know what it's like to leave your home, leave your family to go chase your dreams, it's not easy, it can be lonely, but you're on the right path. You deserve to be here and your talent is second to none."

Aston exclaimed: "Perfect example of dance when it's done at its best. You're not a dancer, you're an artist. You understand the stage, the music."

"We could be signing you a cheque cause that was unbelievable," added Ashley.

During the show, last year's winners Prodijig also showcased some of their new moves as the prepare to travel the UK and Ireland with their debut tour.

Got To Dance continues next Sunday at 6.00pm on Sky1 (HD), when Buckness Personified, Mechanikool, Mini Moves, Momentum, Pulse Collective and Reese will be competing.
