We love a good Britain’s Got Talent dance act and so we weren’t at all disappointed by shadow dancers Attraction, who were showcased on tonight’s first episode of the 2013 series.

The ITV show returned with a bang tonight and towards the end of the first instalment 9 dancers from Hungary work took to the stage, to perform an imaginative and incredibly moving routine for Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.

Before they auditioned, the group leader told Ant and Dec that they would be telling a story through movement and explained:

“This is a love story, because this is an emotional story and a true story. If we won Britain’s Got Talent……this is the top of my life!”

The performance covered love, romance, birth, marriage and even death and by the end you could have heard a pin drop as the audience stared on, open mouthed.

Simon was amazed by the performance and was almost speechless by the time they’d finished. Amanda wasn’t any less moved and told them:

“I actually can’t speak.”

She praised their ’emotional and touching’ choreography, and told the performers they had been truly ‘amazing.”

Alesha, who knows more about dance than anyone else on the panel, was very close to tears too and told the act that their tryout had been ‘so poignant and emotional.’

She added:

“I forgot that we were here and you just drew me in completely. It was fantastic and I loved it.”

David called the troupe ‘faultless’ while Simon had the final word and thanked Attraction for travelling to the UK to showcase their talents. He claimed to be ‘flattered’ by their decision to apply for his show and added:

“It is one of the best acts I’ve ever seen in terms of originality. It was very touching.”

Unsurprisingly, the troupe got four yeses from the judges and won a place in the next round.

Did you enjoy Attraction’s performance tonight? Do you think they deserve a place on the live shows? Leave your comments below….
