Dance group Just Us stuns Britain's Got Talent viewers

By Katie Archer

The dancing friends had a heartbreaking tale.

Dance group Just Us moved Britain’s Got Talent viewers to tears with their emotional story and performance.

The team of five friends won judge Alesha Dixon’s Golden Buzzer choice in Saturday’s episode after dancing a stunning routine despite their star performer suffering from scoliosis.

Julia Carlile, 15, needs to have surgery on her spine that would prevent her from dancing because of the metal rods used to support her frame, but has said that if Just Us win the ITV contest, she would spend the money on having her operation in the US where a different technique is used that does not involve the rods.

Just Us was not the only act to make viewers cry – 16-year-old singer Reuben Gray also made those watching emotional when his dad, who he had thought was out of the country as he is in the army, revealed that he had come along to surprise his son by sitting in the audience.

Fans of the programme were also impressed by some talented children in the auditions, including magician Issy Simpson who is just eight.

Charley Dyson, nine, wowed viewers with his stunt scooter riding.

:: Britain’s Got Talent continues on April 29 at 8pm.
