BRITAIN’S Got Talent has been rocked by nonetheless another liaison involving gifted acts — as its latest dance duo, Grace and Ali, already has a major TV tie with judge Alesha Dixon.
The pair, introduced as teen sweethearts before their audition, wowed the judges and sailed by to next turn this week, leaving Alesha “in awe” of their skills.
But it seems Ali Rasul, 16, already came first on her CBBC talent contest Alesha’s Street Dance Stars in 2011, a win which rocketed him to personal success in the West End.
At the age of 10 Ali tender Alesha as partial of the kids’ dance troupe Lil Diamondz, and she awarded the seven-strong organisation first place.
As their prize, Hartlepool dance squad Lil Diamondz represented the UK at the World Hip Hop Championships in Las Vegas, and non-stop a new hip bound low-pitched in the West End.
On theatre in Vegas Ali introduced himself by saying: “Yo, everybody! My name’s Ali G!”
Ambitious Ali then bagged a role as Billy Elliott in the West End when he was 13 before studying at the Performing Arts Musical Theatre at the Riverside College, Stockton-On-Tees, where he met Grace, 17.
On top of that, Ali seemed on TV show Dance Mums with Jennifer Ellison on TLC a small two years ago.
But Alesha, 38, seemed not to recognize Ali when he showed up on tonight’s episode.
Alesha gushed: “You are two of the many gifted dancers we’ve seen by a transparent mile. You are positively overwhelming together to watch.
“Skill turn was insane. You were so in-sync, told a shining story. we was in astonishment of your talent.”
Talking about auditioning on TV, Ali told the Gazette Live that he and Grace “were shaken watchful backstage, but the nerves go when you walk on stage”.
Already this series a comedian has been accused of hidden his act, a magician has taken authorised movement against the show and a kids’ choir has been suggested to have a lot some-more knowledge than it appeared.
The Sun contacted ITV for comment.
