Customers at a Cork bistro had a surprise rave last night as Lords of Strut took to the street outside for an impromtpu rave.

The Britain's Got Talent hopefuls - Famous Seamus and Seantastic - jetted off to London on Thursday ahead of their live semi-final performance on the hit ITV show.

And customers at Tony's Bistro on North Main Street sent them on their way with something of a street party on Wednesday night.

They wowed the audience and (most of) the judges with their 80s inspired acrobatic comedy act at the weekend and they'll be upping their game on the live show with a even more impressive routine.

"Our first audition was an act we made for RIOT last year in the Dublin Fringe," reveals Cian.  "It was made specially for that show and was very much Lords of Strut's typical style - lots of silly gags, acroabtics and strutting around.

"That was a six minute act and we had to make it into a 2 minute act for TV so it was really tight.  Every beat counts so we had to be really precise."

Of their upcoming semi-final performance, he adds, "We still come out and talk to the audience but we have amazing outfits specially made by a designer in Australia.  We will be stylin and we'll be spinning and flipping all to a banging track!"
