Slick: The group impressed the panel with their exciting, well-choreographed routine
Their acrobatics- filled slick performance left the judges stunned, and David opened the commentary with: 'The challenge for a dance act is to be original and different and come out here and blow the roof off with as much energy as possible and you did it.'
Simon added: 'You’re like the St. Trinian’s of dance and I like that idea and I think that you could play on that a bit more, so you’ve got a little bit more personality in terms of the image but I thought the choreography was smart and it was tight and fun. You were really good.'
Pulled it off in style: Alesha said to Nu Sxool 'you may be little but you mean business. I love the uniforms, the choreography. Good job, well done'
Alesha said: 'The guys are right, you may be little but you mean business. I love the uniforms, the choreography. Good job, well done.'

Clearly disturbed by the strange performance, Alesha said: 'I was absolutely petrified, I thought you were going to come out and strangle me. No from me.'
Eccentric: 28-year-old performance artist Geisha Davis certainly made a unique showing
David continued: 'I wouldn't say liked it, but I would like to see what you're going to do next. A yes from me.'
