Simon Cowell is known in both the U.K. and the U.S. for his brutal honesty and sometimes cruel nature when he judged the performances of aspiring musicians on The X Factor and American Idol. However, there was an unconventional and, one might say, novelty act that he was willing to take a chance on during the Saturday broadcast of Britain’s Got Talent.

According to the Huffington Post UK, Cowell, prompted by the audience, pressed his golden buzzer for the dance group Boogie Storm, whose members were dressed up as the Stormtroopers from the Star Wars franchise. They proceeded to dance to a medley of pop songs that included “Single Ladies” by Beyonce, “Sax” by Fleur East, “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” by Silento, and “Gangnam Style” by Psy.

“I literally said if we could find Stormtroopers who could dance, this show is going to go into a different league,” said Cowell, who propelled the group to the upcoming live semi-finals.

He continued, “My dream has come true. Thank you.”

The music mogul’s fellow Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams was surprised by the decision.

“What a surprise that the real life Darth Vader voted for his troops,” said Walliams. “I do worry Simon Cowell may have lost his mind.”
