TWO best friends have break danced their way to success after receiving a standing ovation on a hit television talent contest.

TWO best friends have break danced their way to success after receiving a standing ovation on a hit television talent contest.

Twist and Pulse, also known as Ashley Glazebrook, from Belevedere, and Glen Murphy, from Catford, wowed the judges on ITV's Britain's Got Talent, as they performed a street dance routine splattered with comic elements.

The 19-year-olds' performance received a 3,000-strong standing ovation and all three judges, Piers Morgan, Simon Cowell and Amanda Holden sent them through to the next round.

The dancing duo are now nervously waiting to hear if they have been put through to the Semi Final of the competition, due to be held next month, where they will perform live in front of millions of viewers.

Ashley, who was born in Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup, and was a student at The Business Academy Bexley, said: "It was amazing, probably the best thing we've ever done. Getting a standing ovation was a bit surreal."

Amanda Holden hailed the boys "a glimpse into the future".

The best friends met whilst studying dance at the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in Croydon.

Six months later when a free slot in an end of year show emerged, they formed and have been performing in clubs ever since.

Ashley added: "If we do get chosen

we would be so pleased to show people what we can do, we've got more surprises up our sleeves.

"The whole performance is definitely nerve racking. When we came out people didn't know what to expect.

"We enjoy that we don't look good at first but then people are shocked when they see us perform."

Glen said: "Our comedy is what sets us apart from the other dancers out there, so hopefully we can be like them and get into the live stages this year."

The pair are soaking up the limelight they have received since their performance on the show.

Ashley added: "We've been walking around to Oxford Street to buy clothes and people have been asking us to take pictures of us and it's quite fun. We've been practising our smiles."

Glen is currently working as a professional dancer and choreographer and teaching in various schools. Ashley is in his final year at the BRIT school.
