When you think of stormtroopers from the iconic “Star Wars” movie franchise, you think of the dark side: Darth Vader, the Death Star, and a general sense of evil. However, this unconventional dance group, aptly named Boogie Storm, proves that stormtroopers don’t have to be so menacing. Performing an epic routine to a medley of popular dance songs, these helmeted henchmen completely delight the “Britain’s Got Talent” judges.
In fact, Simon Cowell goes so far as to slam the show’s coveted Golden Buzzer in response to the crowd’s screams. He tells the Boogie Storm dancers, “I don’t know who you are, but I literally said, ‘if we could find stormtroopers who can dance, this show is gonna go to a different league.’ My dream has come true. Thank you.”
However, not everyone was happy with Cowell’s Golden Buzzer decision. According to Metro, many viewers believed that powerhouse songstress, Rachael Wooding, deserved the recognition. Metro reports that even fellow “BGT” judge, David Walliams, tweeted, “So @SimonCowell pressed his golden buzzer for some dancing stormtroopers. He has finally lost his mind.”
Metro reports that Boogie Storm is the fifth and final “BGT” act to receive the show’s Golden Buzzer, giving them an automatic spot in the show’s live finals.What do you think?
