Hello, and welcome to Alesha's Street Dance Stars.

0:00:230:00:27

This is my quest to find Britain's ultimate young street-dance crew.

0:00:270:00:30

We've auditioned hundreds of brilliant performers

0:00:300:00:33

from across the UK,

0:00:330:00:34

and now 24 crews have been invited to strut their stuff on this stage.

0:00:340:00:38

The winners will be crowned Alesha's Street Dance Stars 2011,

0:00:380:00:42

and take home this fabulous trophy.

0:00:420:00:45

So, practise your popping, cos this is going to be epic.

0:00:450:00:49

It's round one of the qualifiers,

0:00:550:00:58

and it's our crews' first chance to impress.

0:00:580:01:02

It's a nervous wait backstage as the crews warm up.

0:01:020:01:05

But the atmosphere is electric.

0:01:050:01:08

Eight crews will be dancing today,

0:01:090:01:11

but only five will be selected to go through to the heats,

0:01:110:01:14

so the pressure is on to deliver a perfect performance.

0:01:140:01:18

So, we have eight crews ready to perform.

0:01:190:01:22

Now, let's meet the three people who will decide their fate.

0:01:220:01:25

It's our judges.

0:01:250:01:26

MUSIC PLAYS

0:01:300:01:32

My name's Kenrick "H2O" Sandy, a choreographer

0:01:400:01:42

and a pioneer of UK street dance.

0:01:420:01:44

For me, it is about pioneering, it is about innovating,

0:01:460:01:49

bringing the next new thing.

0:01:490:01:51

Technique in street dance is very important.

0:01:530:01:56

It's the difference between someone who's very, very good

0:01:560:01:59

and someone who's OK.

0:01:590:02:01

I'm Lizzie Gough,

0:02:120:02:13

I'm a choreographer and professional dancer.

0:02:130:02:17

I'm most famous for being on So You Think You Can Dance.

0:02:170:02:20

I was a finalist, and I came third in the country.

0:02:200:02:24

I'm looking for fresh, new ideas, but also knowing their foundation,

0:02:240:02:30

cos I feel that's very important.

0:02:300:02:31

I'm Turbo, international street-dance star.

0:02:420:02:45

The thing I'm going to be looking for on the show while I'm judging is

0:02:450:02:49

people that can deliver.

0:02:490:02:50

Show me your showmanship, show me that you can perform to me

0:02:500:02:53

and you can perform to a wide audience.

0:02:530:02:55

Without street dance, there's no Turbo. Just like that.

0:02:570:03:01

Alesha will be on hand backstage to fire up our crews

0:03:110:03:14

before they perform.

0:03:140:03:15

First up in front of our judges, it's an all-girl crew who mean business.

0:03:180:03:22

They describe themselves as being giggly,

0:03:220:03:25

hard-working and best friends.

0:03:250:03:28

-ALL:

-Hi, we're Shockarellas, and we're from Manchester.

0:03:280:03:31

-Are you guys in it to win it?

-ALL:

-Yes.

0:03:320:03:34

-You think you can win it?

-ALL:

-Yes.

0:03:340:03:37

-Going to show the judges who's boss?

-ALL:

-Yes.

0:03:370:03:39

-Shockarellas, are you ready?

-ALL:

-Yes!

-Off you go, girls, good luck!

0:03:390:03:43

See you when you come out.

0:03:430:03:45

# Ching, ching Getting paid over here

0:03:530:03:56

# Ching, ching Getting paid over here

0:03:560:03:58

# Thirsty, baby, bring it over here

0:03:580:04:00

# Thirsty, baby Bring it over here ... #

0:04:000:04:02

I don't know what to say, other than

0:04:030:04:06

give me more, give me more, give me more!

0:04:060:04:09

# I whip my hair back and forth

0:04:090:04:10

# I whip my hair back and forth

0:04:100:04:12

# I whip my hair back and forth

0:04:120:04:13

# I whip my hair back and forth

0:04:130:04:15

# I whip my hair back and forth

0:04:150:04:16

# I whip my hair back and forth

0:04:160:04:18

# I whip my hair back and forth... #

0:04:180:04:20

Your swagger - you guys are making me bite my teeth!

0:04:200:04:23

# Motownphilly's back again

0:04:270:04:29

# Doin' a little east-coast swing

0:04:320:04:34

# Boyz II Men going off

0:04:360:04:38

# Not too hard, not too soft... #

0:04:410:04:43

Ladies, that was really, really, really good.

0:04:470:04:50

What I like to see is females doing their thing

0:04:500:04:52

and making it feel like

0:04:520:04:53

street-dance hip hop is not just a masculine thing,

0:04:530:04:56

it's not just about the mandem - the girldem as well!

0:04:560:05:00

You understand? Sometimes it feels as though

0:05:000:05:03

girls shouldn't do certain things,

0:05:030:05:05

and youse were physical, youse were fierce, youse were strong,

0:05:050:05:08

you all have nice facials, and the performance was really good.

0:05:080:05:12

-And you took the stage. Well done. ALL:

-Thank you.

0:05:120:05:14

I thought you guys were amazing. Your musicality was on point.

0:05:140:05:17

Just one thing is your locking.

0:05:170:05:20

I think you need to go back again to the basics,

0:05:200:05:22

cos you have it, don't get me wrong,

0:05:220:05:24

but sometimes just the way you did the move wasn't correct, in a sense.

0:05:240:05:29

GIRLS SQUEAL

0:05:290:05:31

Well done, girls. Well done.

0:05:330:05:36

This b-boy crew have a neat trick up their sleeves - one of them can

0:05:400:05:43

spin on his head without the use of his hands.

0:05:430:05:46

Will it be enough to impress our judges?

0:05:460:05:48

-ALL:

-We're the Minions, and you'd better watch your back.

0:05:500:05:52

Going to bring it to the table? Feeling good?

0:05:520:05:55

-You going to win this?

-ALL:

-Yeah.

-You going to win this?

-ALL:

-YEAH!

0:05:550:05:58

Let me see you guys do it. Off you go, good luck, guys.

0:05:580:06:00

-Have a good one, all right? Hair looks good, by the way.

-Thank you.

0:06:000:06:04

You know I love music

0:06:160:06:18

And every time I hear something hot it makes me want to move.

0:06:180:06:21

It makes me want to have fun.

0:06:220:06:23

But there's something about this joint right here.

0:06:230:06:26

This joint right here, it makes me want to, oh...

0:06:260:06:30

# No time for moping around - are you kidding... #

0:06:300:06:33

I was smiling watching you guys, inside and out.

0:06:330:06:36

I felt it entertained.

0:06:360:06:38

# It's been a long week I put in my hardest

0:06:380:06:41

# Going to live my life Feels so good to get it right

0:06:410:06:44

# So I like what I see When I'm looking at me

0:06:440:06:46

# When I'm walking past the mirror

0:06:460:06:48

# No stress through the night At a time in my life

0:06:480:06:50

# Ain't worried about if you feel it

0:06:500:06:53

# Got my head on straight I got my vibe right

0:06:530:06:55

# I ain't going to let you kill it

0:06:550:06:57

# See, I wouldn't change my life

0:06:570:06:59

# My life's just fine, fine Fine, fine, fine, fine, woo

0:06:590:07:05

-# Fine, fine... #

-This is serious!

0:07:050:07:07

Them head spins is ridiculous, OK?

0:07:090:07:10

And you did it without a hat. I know that really hurts.

0:07:130:07:16

I have to do it with a hat, I'm such a wuss. I feel like a wuss now.

0:07:160:07:19

# I wouldn't change my life

0:07:190:07:21

# My life's just... #

0:07:210:07:23

Your landings were on point, your threading was great on the floor,

0:07:250:07:28

I just want to see more from you.

0:07:280:07:31

I would definitely like to see more choreography.

0:07:310:07:34

For me, I'm about evolution and innovating and pushing,

0:07:340:07:37

so I'd like to see youse lot push those boundaries, definitely,

0:07:370:07:40

-and choreography.

-It was sick,

0:07:400:07:42

very sick, and is there space for another member, OK?!

0:07:420:07:46

I'm not that old, a'ight?!

0:07:460:07:47

THEY CHEER

0:07:500:07:52

High fives, high fives! Come on, high fives!

0:07:540:07:58

-As Turbo said, sick, sick, sick. Are you pleased?

-ALL:

-Yeah.

0:07:580:08:02

-Definitely.

-That was amazing.

0:08:020:08:04

They've flown all the way from Belfast.

0:08:090:08:11

Let's see if they can get this party started.

0:08:110:08:13

-ALL:

-We're Party Rockers and we're from Belfast!

0:08:130:08:17

Is there anything you can tell me about your dance style?

0:08:170:08:20

What is it? Is it straight-up dance,

0:08:200:08:22

is there any locking or popping, or is it just...?

0:08:220:08:25

It's locking, popping, breaking, new school, whacking.

0:08:250:08:29

Right, I wish you guys the best of luck. I'll be waiting for you

0:08:290:08:32

-when you come out.

-Bye-bye.

-Bye-bye!

0:08:320:08:34

# For you I'd be, woah-woa Running a thousand miles

0:08:420:08:46

# Just get to where you are

0:08:460:08:48

# Step to the beat of my heart

0:08:480:08:50

# I don't need a whole lot

0:08:500:08:52

# Coming for you I admit

0:08:520:08:54

# I'd rather give you the world

0:08:540:08:56

# I just need somebody to love

0:08:560:09:01

# I don't need too much Just somebody to love

0:09:010:09:04

# Somebody to love... #

0:09:040:09:06

I really liked your flavour, your vibe,

0:09:060:09:09

and the variety of the grooves that you're using.

0:09:090:09:12

# Calling me Mick Jagger I be rolling like a stone

0:09:120:09:15

# Jetsetter, jetlagger... #

0:09:150:09:17

You got mad skills.

0:09:170:09:18

When you did your applejacks, you guys kick at the same time,

0:09:180:09:22

and I see you guys timed it perfectly.

0:09:220:09:24

# Chicks in the club

0:09:240:09:26

# Honey, what's up? #

0:09:260:09:29

I thought that was really, really good.

0:09:290:09:31

I can see a lot of grounding, I can see a lot of foundation,

0:09:310:09:34

and then you had the hype man!

0:09:340:09:35

You had your little hype man here, waiting, going, "You know what?

0:09:350:09:39

"I'm-a do my thing," he does his thing,

0:09:390:09:41

"I'll chill for a minute... I'll do my thing again,"

0:09:410:09:43

which is really, really good.

0:09:430:09:45

I feel if he was involved in it more, that would have been good,

0:09:450:09:48

but it was a really good performance, so well done, guys.

0:09:480:09:51

-ALL:

-Thank you.

-I enjoyed watching you guys.

0:09:510:09:54

One thing I have to pick out, as well,

0:09:540:09:56

which I personally like was, from your house,

0:09:560:09:59

you started doing some house steps, and it went into hype steps.

0:09:590:10:03

OK, I see where you're going, all right! Watching out for you guys!

0:10:030:10:07

-Well done, guys! How was that?

-ALL:

-Brilliant.

0:10:070:10:11

Our next crew pride themselves on being perfectionists.

0:10:170:10:20

They're hoping that a perfect performance today will

0:10:200:10:23

leave our judges speechless.

0:10:230:10:25

-ALL:

-We're Beat Breakers, and we're from Plymouth.

0:10:250:10:28

-OK, guys, are you ready?

-Yeah.

-Best of luck. Fingers crossed.

0:10:290:10:32

Have a good one, we'll be waiting for you, OK? Good luck.

0:10:320:10:35

# I'm fly, so fly

0:10:450:10:47

# Na-na-na-na-na-na-ni-ni-ni

# Na-na-ni-ni-ni

0:10:530:10:54

# Na-na-na-na-ni-ni-ni... #

# Spirit is moving, spirit is moving

0:10:570:11:00

# Can't stop moving Can't stop moving

0:11:000:11:02

# Can't stop moving... #

0:11:020:11:03

I loved the beginning, you have a great technique,

0:11:030:11:06

and you're so light on your feet.

0:11:060:11:08

# Told me not to change it

0:11:080:11:10

# If a change could ever be... #

0:11:100:11:13

Beat Breakers!

0:11:360:11:38

Yes!

0:11:380:11:39

Smashed it!

0:11:390:11:40

You've got good skills, you've got really good skills,

0:11:400:11:43

and you've got good foundation.

0:11:430:11:45

Just work on how you finish your moves.

0:11:450:11:47

There was one bit where you went...

0:11:470:11:49

Make sure you're all on the same page with that.

0:11:490:11:52

-But for me, that was some good hip hop. ALL:

-Thank you.

0:11:520:11:54

Over all I really liked that, even with your flips,

0:11:540:11:57

you couldn't hear you land, that's how light you were.

0:11:570:11:59

Just be careful in between moves that you don't fidget,

0:11:590:12:02

like, pull your trousers up or pull your jumper down,

0:12:020:12:05

cos just for half a second it just takes your focus off that.

0:12:050:12:08

But other than that, it was brilliant.

0:12:080:12:11

-You, sorry, what's your name?

-Perry.

0:12:110:12:13

You actually make me want to house with you.

0:12:130:12:16

I can see you get into it. I can see that you enjoy it.

0:12:160:12:18

I love house.

0:12:180:12:19

Talking about loving the house!

0:12:190:12:22

High five! Well done. Well done. Well done.

0:12:290:12:33

-Thank you.

-It was amazing.

0:12:330:12:36

Tell me, why was it amazing?

0:12:360:12:38

-They liked it.

-Yes.

-It went really well.

0:12:380:12:41

I don't think they had anything bad to say, did they?

0:12:410:12:45

Just pulling our jumpers down.

0:12:450:12:48

I didn't even notice that when I was watching.

0:12:480:12:50

Our trousers! ALESHA LAUGHS

0:12:500:12:52

Here's a look at the fantastic performances so far.

0:12:540:12:57

Shockarellas, from Manchester.

0:12:590:13:01

The Minions, from Coventry.

0:13:050:13:07

Party Rockers, from Belfast.

0:13:070:13:10

And from Plymouth, Beat Breakers.

0:13:120:13:14

This handsome crew are proper street,

0:13:210:13:23

practising their moves in the park after school every night of the week.

0:13:230:13:28

-ALL:

0:13:280:13:32

-I hear that some of you are family.

-Yeah, us three are brothers.

-Ages?

-13.

-11.

-Excellent.

0:13:370:13:40

-So you guys have been dancing together since you were tiny?

-Yeah.

0:13:400:13:42

-Feeling ready, guys?

-ALL:

-Yeah.

-Are you nervous?

-ALL:

-Yeah.

0:13:420:13:45

-Going to show them who's boss?

-ALL:

-Yeah.

0:13:450:13:47

-Off you go, good luck.

-ALL:

-Thank you.

0:13:470:13:50

I really liked the transitions and the formations,

0:14:110:14:15

the way youse lot changed.

0:14:150:14:16

# People in the place

# Don't let me down

0:15:020:15:06

GLASS SHATTERS

0:15:060:15:08

Who did the choreography?

0:15:080:15:10

Oh, you did. Ah, so you don't have a choreographer to watch you?

0:15:100:15:13

Well done to you, then. It is hard to choreograph AND be in it.

0:15:130:15:16

Make sure you don't chew your tongue when you're dancing.

0:15:160:15:19

I noticed that, OK? And all of you look up, yeah?

0:15:190:15:23

Just be more confident, that's all you need to be.

0:15:230:15:25

Once you get on that stage, it belongs to you,

0:15:250:15:28

so you got like one minute...

0:15:280:15:30

you control it, use it. All that space there is yours.

0:15:300:15:33

One thing for me is just make sure that you work on your flavour

0:15:330:15:38

and your swagger.

0:15:380:15:39

Really kind of get earthy on that, yeah?

0:15:390:15:42

-Well done.

-Thank you.

-Well done.

-Thank you.

-Well done.

0:15:420:15:46

Well done, well done, well done.

0:15:460:15:48

It's about quality and quantity for the power crew going up next.

0:15:520:15:57

With 11 girls and just one boy,

0:15:570:16:00

they're aiming to blow the judges away with their routine.

0:16:000:16:03

-ALL:

-Team!

0:16:030:16:04

-ALL:

-We're Xtreme and we're from Rotherham!

0:16:040:16:07

There's a lot of you here. We've got one guy over there.

0:16:080:16:11

What's your name?

0:16:110:16:13

-Kesho.

-How does it feel to be in amongst the lovely ladies?

0:16:130:16:15

It's great!

0:16:150:16:17

THEY LAUGH

0:16:170:16:20

# I wanna rock right now

0:16:360:16:37

# I wanna, I wanna rock right now

0:16:370:16:40

# I wanna I wanna rock right now, now... #

0:16:400:16:42

Wow!

0:16:420:16:44

When you guys started dancing, those colours started to come out.

0:16:440:16:47

It's like I can see colours on stage -

0:16:470:16:49

you just brightened the stage up with your energy.

0:16:490:16:51

# Live your life, live your life

0:16:510:16:55

# Let that love inside... #

0:16:550:16:58

Like, you really surprised me.

0:16:590:17:00

I didn't expect that from you guys at all, the girls doing the tricks.

0:17:000:17:04

# It's inside you

0:17:040:17:07

# Don't let 'em bring you down

0:17:070:17:09

# No

0:17:090:17:10

# Oh-whoa

0:17:120:17:14

# Don't you know? Don't you know?

0:17:140:17:16

-# Oh-whoa

-Beautiful, don't you know?

0:17:160:17:19

# Oh-whoa

0:17:190:17:21

# Don't you know? Don't you know?

0:17:210:17:23

# Oh-whoa

0:17:230:17:25

# Beautiful Don't you know, know, know, know

0:17:250:17:27

# Know, know, know

0:17:270:17:29

# You'll be with those beautiful people. #

0:17:290:17:33

I really enjoyed that, guys.

0:17:370:17:38

There was so much going on, it was like, "Oh, where do I look?"

0:17:380:17:42

I would like to see more from you guys, different styles,

0:17:420:17:45

a slower hip-hop kind of thing

0:17:450:17:47

or something that's more down in the ground,

0:17:470:17:49

rather than the really fast stuff.

0:17:490:17:51

Cos what you did was really great,

0:17:510:17:53

so it'd be nice to see another side of you guys.

0:17:530:17:55

I did like your ending as well, cos, like, some people just end - BANG!

0:17:550:17:59

Finished, stop there. But you guys were like, "Beautiful people..."

0:17:590:18:03

THEY LAUGH

0:18:030:18:05

THEY SCREAM

0:18:050:18:08

Well done, guys. Well done.

0:18:080:18:11

That was amazing.

0:18:110:18:12

And what was it that Turbo picked up? He said he liked your ending.

0:18:120:18:16

ALL: Yeah.

0:18:160:18:17

The continued ending. Show me that.

0:18:170:18:19

Up next, it's 5XS.

0:18:310:18:32

They may be extra small by name, but don't be fooled -

0:18:320:18:36

these guys are guaranteed to give an XXL performance.

0:18:360:18:40

-ALL:

-We're 5XS and we're from Leicester. Woo!

0:18:400:18:44

What will you guys bring that's different?

0:18:440:18:46

Going to show everyone that you're the winners?

0:18:460:18:49

Yeah, we're going to do proper dancing, hardcore.

0:18:490:18:52

Hardcore, proper dancing.

0:18:520:18:53

# Lights, lights, all of the lights

0:19:100:19:13

# Turn up the lights in here, baby

0:19:130:19:16

# Extra bright I want y'all to see this

0:19:160:19:19

# Turn up the lights in here, baby

0:19:190:19:22

# You know what I need

0:19:220:19:24

# Want you to see everything

0:19:240:19:26

# Want you to see all of the lights... #

0:19:260:19:29

Some of the lines that you guys were creating were more dancier.

0:19:290:19:32

# I could stick around and get along with you

0:19:350:19:38

# Hello... #

0:19:380:19:39

-Major Lazer...

-Ha-ha! Yes! You see his little face?

0:19:420:19:46

Wicked!

0:19:470:19:49

Pon de floor.

0:19:490:19:51

Pon de floor.

0:20:050:20:07

Pon De Floor, the dip you hit in there.

0:20:070:20:09

When she said, "Pon de floor," BAM! You hit the floor. I'm like, "Yeah."

0:20:090:20:13

Nearly jumped up and hit the ceiling.

0:20:130:20:15

You're standing here like this...

0:20:150:20:17

"Pow! This is me." Like, "This is my stage, OK? This is me.

0:20:170:20:20

"You watch me, you watch what we do, OK?"

0:20:200:20:22

Guys, youse lot are good.

0:20:220:20:24

Youse lot are very mature.

0:20:240:20:27

I want you to be more confident in your grooves and swagger.

0:20:270:20:30

So any time that you've got the arm here,

0:20:300:20:33

make sure you're using your chest. A lot of power comes from there.

0:20:330:20:36

So even though you're using your arms,

0:20:360:20:38

your power's coming from here, so use that a lot more.

0:20:380:20:41

-THEY CHEER

-Well done, guys.

0:20:410:20:44

Well done. What did the judges say to you?

0:20:440:20:47

They said that we were, like, mature, cos they thought we were 14, 15,

0:20:470:20:50

but we're only like 11 to 14, so...

0:20:500:20:53

-Ah, interesting!

-They said we didn't need flips and stuff -

0:20:530:20:56

the choreography was good.

0:20:560:20:57

Yeah, you guys owned it. So are you very pleased?

0:20:570:20:59

-ALL:

-Yeah.

-Ready to come back and do it again?

0:20:590:21:02

-ALL:

-Yeah.

-Definitely.

-Good luck, guys.

0:21:020:21:04

Last but not least, this crew have been dancing together for two years.

0:21:090:21:13

They describe themselves as dedicated,

0:21:130:21:16

adventurous and, of course...

0:21:160:21:18

Wicked.

0:21:180:21:20

-ALL:

-We're Wicked and we're from Dartford. Woo!

0:21:200:21:24

How long have you been a crew? There's ten of you. So...

0:21:240:21:27

how long has this collective been together?

0:21:270:21:29

-Two years.

-That's amazing. You're like family?

0:21:290:21:32

-ALL:

-Yeah.

0:21:320:21:33

If you've been together for two years, you'll be tight.

0:21:330:21:36

-ALL:

-Yeah.

-I wish you the best of luck.

0:21:360:21:38

-ALL:

-Thank you.

-All right guys, good luck.

0:21:380:21:40

Ha-ha-ha. What you laughin' at?

0:21:500:21:52

# I got 21 seconds to flow

0:21:580:22:00

# I got 21 seconds to go

0:22:000:22:02

# Cos if you like me, let me know Let me in the studio

0:22:020:22:04

# I got 21 seconds before I gotta go

0:22:040:22:06

-# Did you see me in the video?

-Oh, no!

0:22:060:22:07

-# Did you see me in the video?

-Oh, no!

0:22:070:22:09

# So if you like me, let me know Let me in the studio

0:22:090:22:11

# I got 21 seconds before I gotta go... #

0:22:110:22:13

I really liked the formations, the transitions

0:22:130:22:16

and the use of the stage.

0:22:160:22:18

# Whatever I do I feel the pain

0:22:180:22:23

# With or without you

0:22:230:22:25

# Hey, yeah

0:22:260:22:28

# Let your body fly

0:22:320:22:33

# Everybody jumpin'... #

0:22:330:22:35

Hee-hee!

0:22:350:22:36

# Keep on jumpin'

0:22:370:22:39

# Let your body fly. #

0:22:390:22:40

They're really good!

0:22:400:22:41

# Everybody jumpin'

0:22:410:22:43

# Till you see the sun in the sky

0:22:430:22:44

# Keep on jumpin'

0:22:440:22:46

# Let your body fly

0:22:460:22:48

# Everybody jumpin'

0:22:480:22:50

# Till you see the sun in the sky

0:22:500:22:52

# Keep on jumpin'

0:22:520:22:53

# Let your body fly

0:22:530:22:55

# Everybody jumpin'

0:22:550:22:57

# Till you see the sun in the sky

0:22:570:22:59

# Keep on, on, on, on. #

0:22:590:23:01

SHE MIMES: Ha-ha-ha! What you laughin' at?

0:23:010:23:05

I really enjoyed that, guys. There's just so much going on.

0:23:050:23:08

There's no tricks in the routine whatsoever but it held its own.

0:23:080:23:12

When you do your steps, go through your feet, all I heard was...

0:23:120:23:15

-TAPPING

-You know, from your trainers,

0:23:150:23:17

so you just need to make it a bit more oozy

0:23:170:23:20

so that when you're doing the house, it's got a bit more flavour to it.

0:23:200:23:24

Be careful when you're doing transitions and formations -

0:23:240:23:27

your routine starts to lose its tightness.

0:23:270:23:29

When it starts to open up a little bit, I'm starting to see

0:23:290:23:32

mistakes here and there. Other than that, it was really good.

0:23:320:23:35

The beginning bit - "You see me in the video? Oh, no."

0:23:350:23:38

There's a part where you guys go, "Oh, no,"

0:23:380:23:40

and I'm like, "Ooh, yes, get in there!

0:23:400:23:42

"Get it, get it, dig it deep!" I like that.

0:23:420:23:44

You got the swagger down, I went...

0:23:440:23:46

HE GROANS HAPPILY

0:23:460:23:48

OK?

0:23:480:23:49

It was "Wicked"!

0:23:490:23:51

THEY LAUGH

0:23:510:23:52

THEY ALL SCREAM

0:23:530:23:55

It's time for the judges to begin deliberating.

0:24:020:24:05

Sadly, we have to say goodbye to three of our crews

0:24:050:24:08

and only the strongest performances will go forward.

0:24:080:24:10

Who will they choose?

0:24:100:24:12

Here's a quick reminder of all eight stage-shattering performances.

0:24:120:24:17

Earlier, we saw Shockarellas from Manchester.

0:24:170:24:19

The Minions from Coventry.

0:24:220:24:24

Party Rockers from Belfast.

0:24:260:24:28

And Beat Breakers from Plymouth.

0:24:310:24:33

Then we saw Demolition from Leicester.

0:24:350:24:39

Xtreme from Rotherham.

0:24:390:24:41

5XS from Leicester.

0:24:440:24:46

And, from Kent, it's Wicked.

0:24:460:24:49

I like these guys.

0:24:560:24:57

They're fresh.

0:24:570:24:59

-Even their routine, I think they had something different as well.

-Mm-hm.

0:24:590:25:02

-They were really good trickers.

-Oh, yeah, definitely. But...

0:25:020:25:05

overall content, was there enough street?

0:25:050:25:09

Enough hip hop?

0:25:090:25:10

5XS is different because we don't really do many tricks.

0:25:100:25:13

We just dance.

0:25:130:25:14

We worked hard and it doesn't matter if we don't get through,

0:25:140:25:17

we're so proud.

0:25:170:25:18

-In or out? BOTH:

-Compared to the others?

0:25:180:25:20

Out.

0:25:200:25:21

This group right here. Boy.

0:25:210:25:23

-They're untouchable, frankly.

-Yeah.

-For me.

0:25:230:25:26

-It's quite scary.

-I'm going to say yes.

0:25:260:25:28

I was going to say no.

0:25:280:25:30

THEY LAUGH

0:25:330:25:34

Why have youse lot put it on me?!

0:25:340:25:36

Right...

0:25:360:25:38

can we leave them in the middle?

0:25:380:25:40

Right now. Yeah? OK.

0:25:400:25:42

Please put us through to the next round,

0:25:420:25:44

because all of us have so much more to show you.

0:25:440:25:47

And I hope you like it.

0:25:470:25:48

If we get through to the next round, we've got so much more to bring.

0:25:480:25:52

-I like them.

-Yeah.

0:25:520:25:53

They're strong. I feel like they have more definitely, anyways.

0:25:530:25:57

So, guys, is this our final decision?

0:25:570:26:01

These five?

0:26:010:26:03

These five.

0:26:030:26:04

For me, yeah, I'm happy.

0:26:050:26:06

Turbo?

0:26:060:26:08

I'm happy.

0:26:080:26:10

-I'm very sure of that.

-Mm-hmm.

-Cool.

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

0:26:100:26:13

OK. Good.

0:26:130:26:14

That's it, the judges have made their decision.

0:26:150:26:18

Let's find out who they chose.

0:26:180:26:20

Going through to the heats from today's show are...

0:26:200:26:23

-ALL:

-To the competition, good luck!

0:26:270:26:29

But we're raising our game for the heats.

0:26:290:26:31

ALL: Watch out in the heats, cos The Minions are burning rubber!

0:26:330:26:37

Good luck to the others, but we'll bring it harder this time.

0:26:390:26:42

We're through to the heats!

0:26:420:26:44

THEY LAUGH AND CHEER

0:26:440:26:46

They performed well, but sadly we'll be saying goodbye to...

0:26:460:26:50

Which means the other two crews going through are...

0:26:540:26:57

-ALL:

-5XS are in the heats! Woooo!

0:26:590:27:03

Good luck to all the other crews, but watch out - we're Wicked!

0:27:040:27:07

-We're through to the heats!

-THEY CHEER

0:27:070:27:09

So it's congratulations to...

0:27:090:27:12

Shockarellas, The Minions,

0:27:120:27:13

Beat Breakers, 5XS and Wicked.

0:27:130:27:17

Coming up next time,

0:27:190:27:21

the swagger continues as we see performances from Lil' Diamondz,

0:27:210:27:24

K Lic, Paradox, Super 6, Dem Lot,

0:27:240:27:28

Nu Flo, Mischief and Street Kids.

We've never been in a competition at this level

0:27:390:27:42

or anything like this before.

0:27:420:27:43

It's a relief that we've finished dancing and we can relax now

0:27:430:27:47

and enjoy ourselves.

0:27:470:27:48

We're all best friends, so we just know each other

0:27:480:27:51

and we'll know where we'll be and we trust each other.

0:27:510:27:54

It's a relief that it's over and all our nerves have gone.

0:27:540:27:57

Alesha was lovely. She spoke to us like we were friends.

0:27:570:28:00
