Irish dancers wow Britain's Got Talent judges

This will definitely challenge what you thought you knew about Irish dancing.

A dance troupe from the North brought Irish dancing into the 21st century on Saturday night at the Belfast leg of the Britain's Got Talent auditions.

Portstewart-based Innova seriously impressed the judges with their performance of traditional Irish dance with a completely modern twist.

While they started off with the usual diddlyie, the 15 dancers aged between 15 and 23 surprised everyone when they switched it up with the definitely untraditional LMFAO and Pitbull.

"Oh my God, I’ve got to tell you I absolutely loved that. I really loved it. This is why I wanted to come to Belfast. It was terrific," said the notoriously difficult Simon Cowell.

Irish dancing to Pitbull - that has to be a first?
