The Greatest Dancer: Jordan Banjo tells audience off | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


The Greatest Dancer was back on BBC One tonight with another round of auditions tonight and next to take to the studio dance floor was Mind Trick. 

During his three minute performance, the dancer was seen performing a street routine which included the extremely challenging body popping or ‘robot dance’. 

However, he failed to impress enough of the audience to open the doors and make it through to the callbacks. 

But, in a surprise turn of events, the crowd started chanting “bring him back” – much to the annoyance of presenter Jordan.

It came after the music started and Mind Trick had been performing for about thirty seconds. 

The camera panned to the presenters who were within the audience. 

“There is not loads of lights and I am so confused as to why not,” Jordan explained first. 

Alesha Dixon who was dancing along to the music added: “I’d have pressed my light for him,” to which Jordan replied: “So would I.” 

The technicality of his dancing took the judges by surprised and each of the dance captains were sat back in their chairs heavily interested in what was going to come next. 

Some of the audience were seen commenting on the performance, one said: “It’s good but it’s a little bit boring, there needs to be a drop somewhere. A bit where he is like, full power.” 

But Jordan, a member of Diversity was quick to defend the dancer: “People will underestimate him, how hard that body control is.” 

As the music changed beat, the percentage of those in the audience enjoying the performance slowly began to rise. 

Getting behind the dancer, Cheryl began speaking to members of the audience closest to her and said: “have you voted? Do you like him?”

Oti Mabuse and Matthew Morrison then joined in, in rallying the audience to vote. 

“Come on guys, vote!” Oti shouted, whilst Matthew added: “Everyone light up!

THE GREATEST DANCER: WHO ARE THE DANCE CAPTAINS?

“I’ve just realised the mirror’s shut,” Jordan commented as the performance was gradually coming to an end. “Seriously?” 

It was at that moment Mind Trick had failed to impress the audience and since only receiving 68 percent of votes, the studio mirror doors stayed close. 

“What is going on?” Jordan exclaimed at the result as the audience began sighing at the outcome. 

“Ah, that is a shame. That is a shame,” Oti remarked and Cheryl added: “We lost a good talent there,” as Matthew commented: “I couldn’t believe that.

“He would’ve been in my final three for sure,” the Glee star said. 

“Bring him back,” an audience member began shouting and soon enough several people chanted the same words. 

Utterly frustrated with the result, Jordan and Alesha went up on stage and Jordan took this moment to address the audiences surprising u-turn. 

“Guys, there’s no point shouting ‘bring him back’ because it’s the audience who have got all the power. 

“It’s completely up to you! You didn’t vote!” And with that, he hung his head and walked off. 

Oti was then heard asking: “Why didn’t you vote? Didn’t you like how he was moving, but not moving?” 

But an answer failed to come to fruition. 

Discussing his departure from the competition, Mind Trick said: “I do feel like I’ve missed out on a great opportunity. The mirror opening would have been amazing.” 

The Greatest Dancer returns next Saturday at 8pm on BBC One.
