They left it all out on the stage, but in the end, it wasn’t enough to be crowned champion of Canada’s Got Talent.
Tsawwassen dancers Emily and Eric Sun, part of Vancouver dance group GRVMNT, stepped up their A-game with an electric performance on Tuesday’s night’s grand finale of Canada’s Got Talent, but their efforts fell short as Canada did not vote the group into the final three.
The winner was singer Jeanick Fournier from Chicoutimi, Que.
“A huge thank you to everyone for all the support we have received on our Canada’s Got Talent journey,” said Emily in an email to the Optimist Wednesday morning. “Even though the results were not what we would have wanted, we are so honored to have been able to be on the Got Talent stage in front of the amazing judges.
“We are proud to have represented the West Coast, Vancouver, and even Delta across Canada and again are so unbelievably grateful for all the love from everyone! Thank you.”
As they have throughout the show, GRVMNT brought forth a performance that was full of tight formations, amazing choreography and showmanship.
“I have such good taste,” said judge Lilly Singh in reference to her awarding GRVMNT with her golden buzzer, which launched the team from their opening audition straight to the semi-finals. “You are the most consistent act on this show. Every time you take the stage you are clean, you are crisp, and you are full of energy. I’m so proud you are my golden buzzer.”
Judge Kardinal Offishall said the group killed it the whole season, while judge Trish Status said she was inspired and in awe of their performance.
Canada’s Got Talent aired on Citytv. The show has been picked up for a second season.
Its counterpart, America’s Got Talent, starts season 17 on May 31.
