BEIRUT: With flawless choreography that entailed a synchronization of serpentine and mesmeric movements, “Mayyas” left their viewers spellbound.

Earlier this year, the Lebanese dance troupe founded by choreographer Nadim Cherfan and made of 31 female dancers aged 13 to 25, won the regional title of prestigious Arabs Got Talent on season six.

This Saturday’s hypnotizing dance performance on the Wembley Arena stage earned the talented dancers a lengthy standing ovation from thousands, including the show’s judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, and David Walliams.

Among the great responses the dance troupe received from the judges, Walliams found the performance “absolutely magical from start to finish,” adding that it was “one of the most beautiful things” he had ever seen on Britain’s Got Talent.

Dixon said the unprecedented performance was “enchanting and mysterious” and found the armography “stunning, interesting, and creatively beautiful.”

Holden congratulated the girls on being a fantastic representation of “Arab’s Got Talent,” and Cowell praised their dance-act for being “absolutely genius, brilliant, and inventive,” adding that he has never seen a dance number like theirs on “any of these shows.”

The YouTube video of their performance has already gained almost 200K viewers and an overwhelming amount of positive feedback, even though it was only uploaded a few hours ago.

After the show, “Mayyas” posted on its social media accounts that even though it was “tiring, difficult, and exhausting,” the “incredible” experience was worth it.

“BGT: The Champions” is a derivative of the British talent competition series, “Britain’s Got Talent, ”which features outstanding winners, finalists and participants throughout the history of BGT and the various international “Got Talent” versions.
