Throwback To Diversity’s First Audition On Britain's Got Talent

Throwback To Diversity’s First Audition On Britain's Got Talent

The new series of Britain's Got Talent hit our TV screens last weekend, and in celebration we've decided to look back at one of our favourite Britain's Got Talent winners of all time - Diversity.

The dance group won the third series of Britain's Got Talent in 2009 after they wowed the judges and the whole nation with their incredibly flawless routines.

After their triumphant win the group, which is led and choreographed by Jordan Banjo, went on to have several successful tours and two DVDs.

Ashley has also hosted dance talent shows and his brother and group member, Jordan, and other member, Kiely, have presented the Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice awards as well as their own reality TV show.

The members ranged in age from ten to 18, and initially looked nervous, but once they started to perform their routine the judges were blown away by the intricate choreography and skills shown.

Once the dance had come to an end, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, David Walliams, and Amanda Holden all stood up to applaud the team.

Alesha shouted: "This competition is now on fire!"

When Simon asked the group what DVG stands for they replied: "Diversity Junior."

One member of the group revealed: "We've had Diversity support us and guide us so we could do well here today."

Simon questioned further: "Who did all of the choreography?"

To which the group replied: "Ashley Banjo."

Ashley was then shown in the crowd applauding his dance protégés and Simon said to him: "Ashley you are an absolute star, good for you. You must be so proud!"

However, some fans on Twitter were not happy that the group had been trained by a previous winner of the show.

One angry fan wrote: "Absolutely disgraceful that @BGT is allowing a group who have been coached and trained by @Diversity_Tweet to go into a competition that is meant to be for the general public. It's nothing but cheating. Plain and simple. FIX! #bgt #BritainsGotTalent"
