Siberian Dancers Wow Public to Reach Britain's Got Talent Final (Video)

A screen shot from Wednesday's performance by dance troupe UDI.

A Russian dance troupe has made it through to the final of popular television show Britain's Got Talent, after putting on a spectacular performance that included both back flips and somersaults.

UDI, who hail from the Siberian city of Tomsk, wowed the public with their acrobatic dancing that was performed together with a brilliant light show, according to video footage of the performance Wednesday night.

Their main competitors on the night were London-based dance crew IMD Legion, and the four judges — including British hard man Simon Cowell — were split on who to put through to the final.

The decision went down to a public vote, with UDI triumphing after receiving the support of the British audience.

The Russian troupe will now head into Sunday's final where they will battle against 9 other acts for the chance to win 250,000 pounds ($382,000) and a slot in a grand concert in November where they will perform in front of the Royal Family.
