Who doesn’t remember Susan Boyle?

The unlikely star of Britain’s Got Talent brought tears to the judges’ eyes when she sang “I Dreamed a Dream,” and ended up winning second place in the finals of the show in 2009.

One would expect the BGT judges not to judge a book by its cover after all these years.

But they did just that – and let a group of dancers shock them again.

The group of middle-aged dancers is called “Old Men Grooving.”

Even though they’re not that old, they also don’t really look like they could set the stage on fire with their dancing.

“Between us we have eight children and three grandchildren,” one member of the group said during the interview before their act.

The five “old men” told the judges that they thought the Royal Family would love what they are doing, but the judges didn’t seem convinced.

As you can see in the video below, Simon Cowell’s look while the dancers are preparing to start says it all.

The judges probably thought it was going to be a boring act with five amateur dancers possibly making a fool of themselves.

But, just like Susan Boyle’s case, Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon, and David Walliams had no idea what they were about to watch.

When the first song starts playing and the first guy starts dancing, things don’t really look promising.

Both the judges and the audience get this feeling that “this is going to be so cringy.”

But only a few moments later, they realize that these are not ordinary middle-aged men.

They’ve got this fire inside that makes them stand out and impress everyone.

Indeed, moments later, when the five men start dancing in sync, their faces change from “why, though?” to “what on earth”!

Dancing to the sounds of Papa Americano, they leave everyone speechless with their skills – and bring smiles to more than a few faces.

When the performance comes to an end, the four judges give them a standing ovation.

The five friends could not be happier seeing that their effort is received with such excitement.

“The idea behind this is fantastic and we do see a lot of dance acts and you are -by far- one of the more memorable ones,” Holden stated.

Later on, Cowell admitted that they tricked him to believe it was going to be an awful act when the first song started playing.

He goes on to say that “age is nothing but a number,” and that’s when everyone – both the dancers and the audience – applauds in agreement.

You can tell by the look on the dancers’ faces that this is exactly what they wanted to prove with their act: that middle age is not an obstacle to realizing one’s dreams.

Just because you are older doesn’t mean you can’t pursue your dreams or you can’t impress with your skill.

The dancing group ends up with four “yes” votes and they leave the stage happy and full of energy – one of them even leaves moonwalking!

No doubt this will be an experience they will be narrating to their grandchildren forever.

Make sure you watch their delightful performance in the video below, they will be sure to make you laugh!
