Dance Troupe Diversity are Britain's Got Talent Winners

The bookies gave them odds of 20 to 1, but a commanding performance of their "Transformer" dance routine bought dance troupe Diversity enough public votes to win Britain's Got Talent. The British public obviously appreciated the energy, creativity and skill of the 10-strong dance group, and Simon Cowell felt their performance had delivered perfection. What is beyond doubt is that Ashley Banjo, the group's choreographer, has a rare gift for delivering unique and exciting dance routines, and that all members of the dance group have the high levels of dance ability necessary to execute them.

Susan Boyle came a commendable second, and many are saying perhaps that was a good placing for her, as the talented singer won't be under so much pressure, as she was under intense media scrutiny in the run up to the final.

In third place was saxophonist Julian Smith, who captured the public imagination with his mesmeric musical performance.

Honourable mention for us must go to the Brett Domino Trio (see also their MySpace page), who showed originality and considerable skill in the use of retro Yamaha keytars and keyboards. Although they didn't make it to the final, we noticed they'd already got a gig as the house band for ITV 2's Britain's Got More Talent, so they'll probably be able to quit their day jobs soon.
