Lords of Strut hailed 'Jedward of dance' as they leave viewers with memorable one liner
Irish variety act, Lords of Strut, have closed tonight's Britain's Got Talent semi-final and the cheeky pair left viewers with a memorable one-liner.
Cian Kinsella (36) from Carlow (but living in Cork) and Cormac Mohally (35) from Cork have been performing as a duo for several years and proved a big hit with both the judges and viewers of the talent show.
But on tonight's final it was their interview that got people talking.
The pair danced to Dead Or Alive’s You Spin Me Round but it was their interview with Ant and Dec that caused some raised eyebrows.
"I can’t think of a better way to end the semi-finals than with Lords Of Strut," the presenters said.
Cian replied: "I love finishing off a semi!" - leaving the presenters looking bemused at the innuendo.
Online fans of the show were quick to comment on the joke, leading the pair to tweet: Think we created a hashtag #finishasemi
Their performance was not enough to get them through however.
Earlier viewers labelled the duo “the Jedward of dance” following their bizarre Britain’s Got Talent semi-final performance.
Lords Of Strut’s tongue-in-cheek 80s dance routine to You Spin Me Right Round saw them compared to the former X Factor contestants as they bid to reach Saturday night’s grand final.
Judge Alesha Dixon was the first to make the comparison which was then echoed across social media, although Amanda Holden described them as “Dumb And Dumber meet the Wedding Crashers”.

Fans on Twitter took delight in their performance with one viewer, @WytchGSD, saying they left her “howling with laughter”.
Kris Souter posted “If @LordsofStrut don’t win @BGT then there’s no justice in the world. Literally in tears watching them”.
But not all viewers appreciated their effort.
Sean O’Sullivan said they were “ridiculous” while Jonny Pegler called them “utter dross”.
