Razy Gogonea was the dance sensation of Britain’s Got Talent, 2011. His Matrix-inspired dance routine is a unique act choreographed by Razy himself, and he is the only one worldwide performing it live without the aid of any special effects. Over the years Razy has trained his body so that it no longer conforms to the normal laws of nature. He can now bend and twist and lean into all sorts of positions that shouldn’t be anatomically possible. Combine this with his limitless imagination and invention as a dancer and it’s easy to see why he was never going to be like any other dance act BGT had ever seen before. His first audition on BGT had the whole world talking about his acrobatics. After just a week he had over four million hits on Youtube and even the official Matrix website acknowledged his amazing ability. And the BGT Judges were all equally as impressed.

MK1 say: “We are bringing something extremely fresh, unique and exciting to the live shows. Delivering the underground to the overground is our motto.”

MK1 are London based duo, Charlotte (Charlie), 19, and Sim, 24. The talented duo have been gigging for a while as they write and produce their own music. Sim also works as a shoe salesman. Their music is a mix of dubstep, hip-hop and pop and Charlie can play piano, guitar and drums. Sim studied music industry management at Buckinghamshire University after being offered a football scholarship to play in America, so he chose music over sport.

At their first audition, their friend Will was with them onstage but he agreed to leave the group after the Judges said they’d put Charlie and Sim through as a duo only. Will remains one of their best mates and Charlie shares a house with him. Ahead of their trip to Las Vegas for Judges Houses Sim broke his ankle playing football meaning Charlie had to push him around in a wheelchair for the whole of the trip. His cast has been taken off now so Sim is having physiotherapy to make sure he’s in top form for the first Live Show.

Tank has always been a ‘joker’ and sacrificed his academic career for 12 years of honing his ability to make people laugh. Leaving school, he took up a job with a company on a trading estate in Exeter, 3 years later joining BT - Post Office Telecommunications as it was then.

In 1980, whilst on a holiday in Weymouth, he entered the adult talent contest as a crazy looking soldier telling jokes and singing - and the Entertainments team told him they were going to announce him as the Sherman Tank as it would be funny. 10 seconds before going on stage, Graham, his real name, suggested they swap the names around - and so TANK SHERMAN was born!
