Spelbound did it again!

I’m sorry for my long absence, but I just moved back from Vancouver to Germany. Anyways, here are some good news!

“Spelbound certainly cast a spell on the Britain’s Got Talent judges, audience and viewers tonight as the gymnastic troupe became the first act voted through to Saturday’s live final.

The 13 members of Spelbound; Adam McAssey 20, Adam Buckingham 21, Alex Uttley 24, Jonathan Stranks 15, Douglas Fordyce 19, Edward Upcott 18, Nicholas Illingworth 24, Katie Axten 17, Leighanne Cowler 18, Lauren Kemp 17, Hollianne Wood 13, Abigail Ralph 15 and Amy Mackenzie 12, had been practicing like crazy to ensure their performance in the live semi-final was just right… and they did not disappoint.” (stv)

Watch their amazing performance! Click play or on YouTube:

Everyone is so excited about the group and their skills. It seems as if scarcely anybody knew about acrobatic gymnastics. But better late than never…

    It’s great that they made but I’m sorry, they suck. Not gymnastics wise, that’s great, but there are too many of them and it makes for a very chaotic performance and therefore very distracting. They don’t flow with the music and it just looks like a bunch of people running around and doing tricks. I think if they had less people it would be a more dynamic performance and group.

      That’s exactly what I thought. But you and me who already know about artistic gymnastics and the beauty of one single mixed pair or maybe the beauty of a more synchronic group would be pleased by a more “organized” and less chaotic performance (which doesn’t necessarily need less people). Most of the people in the non-gymnastics-related audience might be just looking for this sort of distraction and abundance. It’s also a common principle in gymnastic galas. I prefer performances like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRODXsqRu4k), but that’s maybe just my taste.

    Seriously? These kids are extremely talented. I would think more stuff happening on the stage would be more difficult to DO. Watching it STILL gives me goosebumps and I see something new each time I do. In International competition I understand that a large group is not ideal. However, in a competition such as this they gave a flawless performance.
