Chiswick resident James Narh has been revealed as the brains behind two of the finalists in Britain's Got Talent.

The former government research scientist set up the first Street Dance UK Championships in which dance troupe Flawless took part.

After seeing their rivals Flawless deliver a winning performance in the 2005 championships, Diversity formed and went on to win the competition in 2007.

“As Diversity and Flawless demonstrate, we have the best street dance groups in the world,” Narh told the Standard.

Flawless, 10 dancers aged between 20 and 32, have gone on to appear in music videos with artists including Madonna and Beyoncé. Diversity, whose 10 members are aged between 12 and 25 include three sets of brothers.

Both dance troupes competed in the live final on Saturday evening for the chance to win £100,000 and perform in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance.

Diversity beat hot favourite Susan Boyle as well as their dance rivals Flawless and Ealing electrician Demetri Demetriou aka Stavros Flatley.
