Lil’ Banditz Krew win Young Talent Time

By David Knox on May 5, 2012 / Filed Under News, Top Stories 5

NSW dance crew Lil’ Banditz Krew won the Young Talent Time Grand Final collecting a cool $100,000, prize for their efforts.

Formed in 2012 by a non-for-profit association, Project Dance, the sixteen young male dancers between the ages of 8 and 15 years performed to a hip hop / pop medley including The Black Eyed Peas and One Direction.

They beat four other acts in the 90 minute finale before judges Tina Arena, Dicko, and Chucky Klapow.

The finale included performances from Ricki Lee Coulter and Jack Vidgen, the YTT team and Tina Arena performing the song she last sang on the original YTT, MacArthur Park.

Host Rob Mills led a final rendition of All My Loving ahead of an upcoming tour.

TEN is yet to confirm a future for the rebooted talent quest.

    And no-one was ever heard from again…

    I flicked over briefly and was rather uncomfortable with the girls number where they were trying to be sexy. Highly inappropriate for what’s supposed to be a family show and I’m no prude!

    Little kids singing and dancing make me and I’m guessing a lot of other people judging by the ratings, a little uneasy.

    A talent competition about drag queens can work… ever heard of RuPaul’s Drag Race? It depends on the format this new show takes.

    Ten destroyed YTT when it dumped it on Friday nights.

    And now they are going to launch a talent competition about drag queens???

    Ten has just lost the plot.
