A member of dance troupe Entity Allstars took a tumble on stage during tonight’s first Britain’s Got Talent live semi-final, but show insiders tell RadioTimes.com he’s “fine” after being checked out by a medic backstage.
The young performer – part of Alesha Dixon’s Golden Buzzer act – was decked out like Harry Potter in a wizard-themed dance and could be seen visibly hobbling to the front of the stage after the performance.
For a moment it looked like the dance troupe had rewritten JK Rowling’s story so that Slytherin’s Draco Malfoy was the victor. But when asked by the judges if that was how the dance was meant to end, the dancer’s coy shrug and quiet “yeeesss” suggested that his opponent Malfoy was as shocked as anyone that he’d suddenly won thanks to the fall. Well, the judges are always saying they want to find something new, why not a new version of Harry Potter?
The judges and hosts Ant and Dec checked several times to see if the dancer was OK, and he insisted he was. Show insiders confirmed he’s been given the all-clear by a medic – no need for any magical Skele-Gro.
The on-stage tumble came after the dancer who put the group together, Lewis, almost had to pull out of tonight’s performance because he’d injured his knee during rehearsals. Perhaps these guys need to try a new spell: ‘Accio protective padding!’
