Dance group Khronos Agoria left judges gushing as they kicked off the third Britain's Got Talent semi-final.
The group, made up of male dancers from the Brit School in Croydon, performed an energetic routine to Run Boy Run by Woodkid.
Amanda Holden made the dancers leap for joy when she said they were the ITV talent show's best-ever dance act.
She said: "You are by far the best dance group that we've had.
"And I think for me it's the commitment and the passion that you show on stage, every single one of you."
Simon Cowell said: "I saw every one of you, the intensity, how much you prepared for this. This just proves to me that Britain's got talent."
The act even prompted a standing ovation from Alesha Dixon and David Walliams.
Walliams said: "Just listen to the crowd... it was absolutely electric. It was incredible. Incredibly dramatic, incredibly intense."
He also joked about the dancers' bare feet, saying: "May I congratulate you on your foot hygiene - not a verruca sock in sight."
The first live semi-final on Sunday night saw Dixon's Golden Buzzer act, 100 Voices Of Gospel, secure a place alongside Mel & Jamie in the grand final of the show on Saturday.
Swing singer Wayne Woodward and sword-swallower Alexandr Magala then won a place in the final after performing in the Monday night semi-final.
The winner of the ITV show, now in its 10th year, will perform for the Queen at the Royal Variety Show and win a £250,000 prize.
Four-piece girl group Zyrah Rose performed Adele's Set Fire To The Rain.
They were hoping to win round Cowell, who was not a fan of their audition. He had said it left him "a bit cold" and did not feature enough interaction.
But Cowell still sounded a note of caution.
He said: "It sounded really good... but I personally think there is a slight image issue with you that is making you look a little bit untouchable.
"I'll tell you why. You're caviar, and people like spaghetti bolognese. We have to turn you into spaghetti bolognese that can sing."
But he was the only judge not to give the girl group a standing ovation.
Holden said: "You're stunning to look at, I could listen to your voices all night - the interaction probably was a bit too much! ... It felt much more relaxed than your audition. Well done."
Host Declan Donnelly joked: "They don't look untouchable to me. They look very touchable to me."
