Dance troop bows out


A dancer from Daventry who is a member of dance group Cartel says that he is proud to have reached the semi finals of Britian’s Got Talent.

Jordan Goodenough, who was part of Northampton-based troop, went out at the semi final stage of the ITV show on Wednesday last week.

Speaking after appearing on the show, the 18-year-old said: “To be honest, it has all been unbelievable; it is a life changing experience because we were performing in front of 12 million people.

“That is probably the biggest audience I will ever perform in front of.

“Prior to going on the show – I think because we had all rehearsed so hard – we were really excited to get out there and perform.”

The group narowly missed out on the final having finished in the top three of the semi final.

Jordan added: “We were happy with how it went and I think we came away feeling really proud that we had got this far in the competition.

“We had seen off a lot of acts to get that far.”

The group has received plenty of positive coverage since their live show, including an appearance on ITV’s This Morning on Thursday last week. Jordan added: “A massive thank you to all of our fans who have been absolutely amazing. It’s been really good since. We have got a good manager and there’ll be a few things lined up for the future.”
