So at the end of an amazing year for Bollywood Vibes, comes the icing on the cake – The X Factor Live Final!!
We were asked to perform with Reggie and Bollie on the final weekend, their last chance to win the support of the public, and we were more than happy to help them!
We were dancing to Spice Up Your Life (get the link to Bollywood?!). They also had a group of cheerleaders, Brazilian dancers, and a Street crew performing with them. So there were lots of dancers there and it was an amazing atmosphere.
10 of us turned up to Wembley Arena in the morning and we watched while Ollie and Caroline introduced the acts to rehearse on the stage. We saw Ben Haenow, Leona Lweis, Little Mix and Fleur East perform, as well as all the finalists. OMG Little mix and Fleur’s dancing was really amazing!
After our rehearsal we had our hair and makeup done, and got into our costumes. We were really excited when it came to show time, as it was all live to the nation. We had to dance on a stage at the side of the main stage for our choreographed routine, and then we moved to dance in front of the main stage for the rest of the song, we were metres away from al the judges! We danced our little socks off and had a fantastic time, what a buzz to perform in front of thousands in the Arena, and millions at home watching on their TV!
Reggie and Bollie got through to the final two acts, (I like to think it was our help which swung it…), but unfortunately they didn’t win overall. But they have since got a record deal with Syco – Simon’s own label, and we are really chuffed for the boys! We also got to meet Craig Davie and Perrie from Little Mix – woo hoo!
