Auditions for Got to Dance took place around the UK inside traveling dancing domes with dancers needing a minimum score of two gold stars from the judges Ashley Banjo, Kimberly Wyatt and Adam Garcia to get through to the live quarter finals.

The second episode in today’s double bill was the first to feature extreme martial arts (XMA) in its audition line up from the sister and brothers group, Elmes 3Style, and an audition for ‘fluffy morris dancing’ by the Dinatones.
Judge Kimberly Wyatt told the group she gave them a red star for not focusing and looking around. Group leader Rhiann explained “We do it to watch our partners to check our positions to make sure we are together.”
Blue Magic, a duo from Watford was awarded from three gold stars, as was Ghetto Grannies for their pension inspired performance.
Rok Chix from High Wycombe was the closing act, not managing to convince Adam or Ashley that they were good enough to be in the live quarter finals.
