Fans furious as Harrow act Bollywest Fusion fails to reach finals of Britain's Got Talent

The Harrow dance group came eighth out of nine acts in the fourth semi-final, despite Simon Cowell calling their performance 'sensational'

Fans of Bollywest Fusion vented their anger after the Harrow dance troupe missed out on a place in the finals of Britain's Got Talent .

The group, formed by members of Sapnay Dance School in Rayner’s Lane , finished eighth out of nine acts in the vote in the fourth semi-final of the ITV show on Wednesday (May 25) night.

Their colourful routine, performed to an instrumental version of the song BO$$, was hailed as a "feast for the eyes" by David Walliams , with fellow judge Simon Cowell calling it "sensational".

But it was not enough to earn them a place in the final, as young singer Beau Dermott and dance act Balance Unity claimed the two places on offer.

The result didn't go down well with their fans, who took to Twitter to express their disappointment.

Lucaya (@AliyahUkaye) tweeted: "Tumar KR & Bollywest Fusion were supposed to be in the final! Ugh! Wtaf Britain."

Karim Houssami (‎@karim_houssami) tweeted that Balance Unity was "kinda mediocre" compared with Bollywest Fusion, and Amy Leigh (‎@leighAmy95) said "Are you kidding me?!"
