Susan Boyle: 'Britain's Got Talent' Finale Provides Upset (Video)

Despite weeks of practice, Susan Boyle's 'Britain's Got Talent' finale didn't go to plan as dance troupe Diversity pulled out a surprising upset.

The Scottish singer, who became a worldwide sensation after she surprised judges in her first performance on the reality competition, wowed TV viewers with a heart-rending performance of 'I Dreamed A Dream'.

But it was not enough to beat Diversity, who won the night with a fantastic performance of their 'Transformers Medley'. The troupe functioned as a giant robot, and quickly had judges and audience members on their feet cheering as they completed a series of leaps, somersaults and dance moves.

"I think you've blown Flawless (another dance group) out of the water. I do. There is room for you out there. I don't think there should be any assumptions about who is going to win this show," judge Amanda Holden predicted after Diversity performed.

While Simon Cowell added: "If I had to give marks tonight that would be the only performance I would give a ten to."

The ten-member street dance troupe, aged between 12 and 25, appeared to be just as shocked at their success, and were speechless after the win.

As for Boyle, who had been the favorite to win the competition, Simon told her she should be proud of her performance throughout the show: "I've got to know the real Susan Boyle who is a very nice shy person who just wants a break. You can walk away from this with your head held high, I absolutely adore you."
